Cyber Black Box/Event Data Recorder: Legal and Ethical Perspectives and Challenges with Digital Forensics

Michael Losavio, Pavel Sysoevich Pastukov, Svetlana Polyakova

Abstract


With ubiquitous computing and the growth of the Internet of Things, there is vast expansion in the deployment and use of event data recording systems in a variety of environments. From the ships’ logs of antiquity through the evolution of personal devices for recording personal and environmental activities, these devices offer rich forensic and evidentiary opportunities that smash against rights of privacy and personality. The technical configurations of these devices provide for greater scope of sensing, interconnection options for local, near, and cloud storage of data, and the possibility of powerful analytics. This creates the unique situation of near-total data profiles on the lives of others. We examine legal and ethical issues of such in the American and transnational environment.
