Research area:

Advanced technology is used by criminals to perform acts of fraud and terrorism, as well as industrial and intellectual property theft. Digital technology is also used in other crimes. In fact, the omnipresence of digital tools and their use in criminal activities makes digital evidence instrumental for criminal investigation. However, digital evidence is not always admissible in a court of law. The EU-funded LOCARD project aims to procure a comprehensive platform that permits the storage of digital evidence data and ensures appropriate chain custody in juridical work. LOCARD will employ a ‘Trusted Execution Environment’ to guarantee privacy and provide access to a range of digital evidence.




This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 832735
