A Goal-Oriented Requirements Analysis for the Collection, Use and Exchange of Electronic Evidence across EU Countries

Jean Christophe Deprez, Christophe Ponsard and Nikolaos Matskanis, A Goal-Oriented Requirements Analysis for the Collection, Use and Exchange of Electronic Evidence across EU Countries, 1st International Workshop on Requirements Engineering for Investigating and Countering Crime, Beijing (China), September 12, 2016

As our world is going digital, Electronic Evidence are increasingly used in court and not just for computer related crimes. At the same time, organised crimes are also following the globalisation trend and often require fast cooperation across judicial authorities of several countries to be efficiently fought. However this is currently difficult to achieve because the integrity of electronic evidence can easily be compromised and legislation
is often lagging behind in their use of ICT means. The context of this work is to develop a roadmap for the collection, use and exchange of electronic evidence across EU Member states. In this paper we report about a detailed requirements analysis relying
on the GRL goal-oriented method. We present strategic rationales underlying the management of electronic evidence and refine them into specific requirements that can be achieved by existing or enhanced systems like I-Link and TESTA as well as data exchange frameworks such as CybOX, DFAX and UMF.
