Description: Abstract:

This colloquium will look at lessons learned from the perspective of an internet technologist working at a Data Protection Authority. We will look at aspects when setting up a digital lab. Bringing formal methods to collecting data in an investigation has proven to be a crucial element in an investigation.
We will touch on forensic aspects like integrity (maintaining a chain of evidence and a chain of custody) and reproducibility. Real world cases will be presented looking at for example making forensic snapshots of privacy policies, how to go about the install flow of apps and how to detect web tracking with a digraph
approach. We will close the colloquium by looking at the proportionality consideration, and at responsible disclosure when the results of an investigation are made public.
