How a Standardization Process May Impact on the Relation Between Digital Evidence and Digital Forensics
Legal, technical and scientific standardization is presented as complementary approach to the CoE and EU legal initiatives to improve cross-border exchange of digital evidence. Policy-making for digital evidence is considered as a network of standards between different stakeholders (forensics specialists, law enforcement and service providers), which can be equally sound in law-making, court proceedings and forensic science, because it would provide a basis to guide or interpret legal fact-finding, but it would also have the flexibility to adjust to specific jurisdictions, other legal domains, and technologies in an agile manner.
