Secure Communication and Collaboration Framework  for the Judicial Co-operation Environment

Scientific Objectives

SecurE-Justice project concerns the design and development of innovative secure technologies to be embedded in a distributed environment communication and collaboration framework to be implemented within the judicial multi-sited organisations domain. SecurE-Justice system will therefore enable the judicial co-operation process management in compliance with security requirements and trust and confidence needs.

SecurE-Justice project will deal with dependable information management within distributed communication systems; two are the relevant area on which the project will concentrate: ''make safe'' the access to the platform and ''make safe'' the communication process. Any judicial Party involved require high level of security in terms of users identification, authentication and authosization as well as data-transfer protection, non repudiation and privacy.

The project idea originates from a fact: public administrations being multi-site and having to deal with distributed process management, expressed their needs in terms of security compliant systems and ask for a global security management framework enabling secure collaboration and cooperation environment.

SecurE-Justice, by addressing the judicial field, will result in a communication platform enabling a secure judicial cooperation process management all along the criminal justice cycle: from the preliminary investigations phase to the criminal action phase ending with the debate phase.

The overall platform of SecurE-Justice will consist in a technological product

  • based on the embedding of the most innovative security technologies into a unique technological solution enabling secure communication and knowledge sharing in large multi-site organisation context;
  • oriented to the security market in general (public and private) and particularly devoted to the market of security management in distributed ambient and judicial co-operation.
