Digital technology facilitates rapid, low-cost sharing of legal documents. However, putting them online would considerably increase the risk of threats to the integrity and confidentiality of such documents. If such risks are not adequately controlled and prevented, they could reduce people’s trust in the justice system and impede the development of cyberjustice.

Complementing the Towards Cyberjustice research project, the Making Cyberjustice Secure project is designed to identify, classify and provide concrete solutions for the main security weaknesses in the cyberjustice system.

To achieve this goal, the project uses law, computer tools and information sciences to analyse information flows associated with existing cyberjustice processes, and does complementary simulations in its infrastructure. The simulations reveal security weaknesses so that they can be corrected to ensure the integrity of the cyberjustice system.
