Frequently Asked Questions
Timeproof is the first forensic document integrity and timestamp services built on a Blockchain,using a decentralized, immutable, and transparent technology. Timeproof is the easiest way to collect and verify digital evidence on the blockchain. We offer a platform for creating, submitting, and retrieving digital proof for any purpose, making it easier to collect digital evidence to strengthen your legal case ordispute. Evidence that is written with Timeproof is structurally guaranteed to be accurate for eternity.
Our mission is to create the most secure and reliable Digital Evidence Recording System in existence.
Blockchain is a distributed ledger. It's a record of transactions that is stored on a network of computers and can be accessed by anyone with permission to do so. By storing and sharing data across a network of computers, blockchain can reduce costs and provide a more reliable method for the judicial examination of electronic evidence. The following briefly describes blockchain's attributes and the problems they solve: 1. Decentralization -The algorithm is used to synchronize the data and store it on multiple nodes ensuring the security of digital evidence storage. 2. Tamper-Proof -Digital evidence is permanently stored in the blockchain, ensuring integrity and accuracy. Therefore, Blockchain is the perfect technology tobe used to store digital evidence. It has certain attributes that make it particularly suitable for this purpose.
Digital evidence in the virtual world is not directly perceived and managed like traditional evidence. Digital evidence is stored in device equipment. This is unlike physical evidence, where it can be stored and monitored in the physical space. As a result, digital evidence is more difficult to control. In the process of transferring evidence, it may be tampered with by unauthorized actors or external intruders. This could result in the reading, copying, altering, or even deleting of the digital evidence, thus often bringing digital evidence's evidential strength under question. Traditional methods of dealing with digital evidence involve obtaining a copy of the device and physically storing it at a secure location for later use as an exhibit in court proceedings. However, this method has several drawbacks: it requires additional storage space and maintenance costs; it can be difficult to obtain an exact copy when dealing with complex systems such as servers; and it is not always possible to obtain access to all data that needs to be analyzed due to restrictions on privacy laws or regulations regarding intellectual property rights (IPRs). To address these issues, we created TimeProof, a blockchain system that uses forensic tools that allow you to perform forensic analysis on live systems without having access to any underlying hardware components.
