Structures are being put in place according to the government of the United Kingdom to start a test project on blockchain for keeping digital evidence.
Balaji Anbil, Head of Digital Architecture and Cyber Security publicized this initiative in an announcement at Her Majesty’s Courts and Tribunals Service (HMCTS) under the Ministry of Justice.
Court Reforms For Blockchain Implementation
During the statement, Anbil disclosed that the HMCTS push to look into dispersed account book technology forms a most important fragment of the body’s court reform plan. HMCTS and the UK Cabinet Office Open Innovation team held a joint meeting to this end, with the purpose of founding how blockchains and digital account book can contribute to court reforms.
Giving technical nitty-gritties at the conference was Dr. Sadek Ferdous, Technology Policy Fellow and Research Associate at Imperial College, London. He enlightened to applicants that the decentralized nature of distributed account book gives them a very high level of truthfulness and allows innovative data solutions.
He therefore went ahead to clarify how blockchains can be of assistance in digital proof management by forming a guaranteed inspection test that tracks protection and avoids interfering. This inspection test basically forms that foundation for the court system’s record of the creation, alteration and right of entry to digital evidence by what entity.
With the use of such evidence, it’s possible to generate precise and successive renovations of trials to study actions and define by what means the present state of digital evidence came to be. In isolation, the blockchain efficiently has the supremacy to offer a serious protection framework for digital evidence by giving a promise of evidence chain truthfulness.
Other UK Blockchain Governance Projects
Anbil additionally disclosed in the blog that researchers at the University of Surrey are at work on a DLT project with the National Archives to build a solution for protected digital archive storage. Moreover, there is a strategy to test an inter-agency evidence sharing platform based on a blockchain that will come into effect later in 2018.
Communicating his enthusiasm about the government’s curiosity in blockchain technology Anbil said:
“We are very excited to work with the Open Innovation team at the Cabinet Office, and to host thought leadership events on emerging technologies with our colleagues within the government digital communities.”
It was reported In July that the UK government is observing into organizing the usage of smart contracts into British law in an efforts to aid the UK stay competitive in the face of evolving technology.
