Tittel

The digital forensic detectives role in construction of digital evidence

Vitenskapelig sammendrag

 

1.      Main goal and abstract of the project


 

Digital forensics is a branch within forensic science. The research within this scholarly tradition has over many years been aimed at procedure-, tool- and technology development. The digital forensic detectives’ (DFD) role has not been devoted significant attention from researchers. This project will build on social science, decision-making psychology, and digital forensic science. The project will seek to advance the theoretical understanding on how digital evidence is constructed, and how the human and non-human entities influence the end result. Key subjects in this respect will be how objectivity and reliability is understood among the DFDs in Norway. On the basis of this knowledge, the project aims at describing the normative challenges with transparency concerning objectivity of the DFD and the reliability of the digital evidence at stake. This will form a new basis for further discussions and research of both empirical and normative kind.

 

The research question is:

To what degree could an understanding of the DFDs role in how the digital evidence is constructed within a criminal investigation enable mitigation of errors and protection of the rule of law?

 

 

This project will be based on a constructivistic interpretative framework. Qualitative and quantitative methods will be used to solve the research question. Empirical data from guides/standards will be collected and analysed. Quantitative and qualitative empirical data will also be generated through an experiment, where the participants’ activity will be saved as videofiles. Additionally, the participants will answer a questionnaire, write logs and reports. A selection of the participants will be interviewed after the experiment. The quantitative data will be analysed with a statistical approach, while the qualitative data will be analysed with an abductive approach through a hermeneutic phenomenological interpretative framework. The qualitative and quantitative methods will be carried out simultaneously, but analysed separately prior to integration on result level.
