The evidence of the future is based on electronic means. What form will this take and what must already be taken into account today? Did you know that Switzerland was the first country to allow integrity protection by using of Digital Signatures and Time Stamps? This article shows some insights how to implement potential solutions.
Archiving is only of value if the stored objects can also be retrieved correctly. This principle must be at the forefront of the implementation of archiving solutions. All reflections on archiving should focus on the retrieval of a document rather than the storage. The numerous factors that influence the quality of an archive object directly affect the future evidentiary quality. In practice, however, it is clear that these topics are hardly considered.
In future, many evidence proceedings will be conducted with electronic evidence. Various measures must be taken for this data to have the necessary evidentiary quality in future too. This includes the choice of archive format, as well as the selection of means necessary to submit evidence. The presentation of data can also become a problem if the display no longer corresponds to the original format or is retrieved on completely different devices.
