DIGITAL INTEGRITY: EXPLORING DIGITAL EVIDENCE VULNERABILITIES AND MITIGATION STRATEGIES FOR OPEN-SOURCE RESEARCHERS

This paper written by Bellingcat investigators Giancarlo Fiorella, Charlotte Godart and Nick Waters about “digital evidence vulnerabilities and mitigation strategies for open-source researchers” is available (for 1 month) to view free online in the Journal of International Criminal Justice.  The paper asserts that researchers working with digital evidence must be aware of its vulnerabilities if they hope to maximise its value for justice and accountability.  In this paper, the authors highlight 2 important vulnerabilities: the impermanent nature of digital evidence, and its susceptibility to attack from online disinformation and misinformation campaigns.  The paper offers techniques to help counter these vulnerabilities.
