Blockchain - Based Digital Forensics Investigation
Dr. Deepika Sharma | Sakshi 
Abstract: Digital criminal investigation, each and every evidence whether it is collected from CCTV footage or by event data recorders are highly valuable. However, there may be risk when this digital evidence obtained during the investigation of a case is managed through a physical storage device. These evidences can easily be manipulated or destroyed before submitted in the court. Therefore, there is a need to reliably manage digital evidence and investigation using blockchain technology. The proposed Blockchain based Crime Investigation Method (BCIM) model is two phase blockchain model which separates the digital evidences into hot and cold block chains. The information that frequently changes is stored in the hot blockchain and the unchanging data such as videos, images are stored in the cold blockchain. Further in order to strengthen the proposed blockchain based model, the performance of digital crime evidence videos at different parameters can be measured.
