The forensics investigation requirements are in direct conflict with the privacy rights of those whose actions are being investigated. At the same time, once the private data is exposed it is impossible to ‘undo’ its exposure effects should the suspect is found innocent! Therefore, there is a growing concern in the development of forensic investigation frameworks that respect privacy of the involved entities whiles only need-to-know data are exposed to the forensic investigator.
The main contributions of this research are development of a formal language for capturing privacy properties of forensic investigation search warrant and collected data policies, devising objective criteria for comparing and contrasting privacy properties to detect potential conflicts or uncertain situations and making objective rulings, development of a practical strategy for labeling the collected data in accordance with privacy rulings, and innovation of a privacy-respecting forensics investigation controlling and monitoring engine.
