Forensic judicial reconstitution is one of the areas we can help with here at Intersec. The world is constantly evolving and the threat landscape is growing. The capabilities of national security bodies when it comes to managing man made disasters are challenged on a daily basis. It is up to governments to liaise with private industries to develop innovative solutions that help to protect the population while also taking their privacy rights into account.
For many years, mobile network infrastructure has been very helpful in lawful investigations. However, given the potential here, only a small fraction of mobile network potential is being exploited. When it comes to fighting some of the threats out there today, big data is an asset that needs to be exploited more and this is where forensic judicial reconstitution comes into play.
Since they were first introduced, subscriber geolocation is one of the many functions detailed in Mobile Networks Standards. This includes core services, such as SMS and calls. Mobile Networks Standards are used to define dedicated processes and signaling in the various network nodes. This approach is known as active geolocation as it monitors specific activities on the mobile network in order to retrieve the current location of a subscriber.
These services have been leveraged by law enforcement agencies and forces for a number of years. Legal authorities looking for the details of identified subjects can simply request location data from mobile network teams to help with their investigations.
The great thing about these technologies is that they offer a number of impressive features. The first is that they are completely device-agnostic and cannot be spoofed. This means that the information they provide is highly reliable. The accuracy of this data can vary and ranges from 100 meters in highly-populated urban areas to a number of kilometers in rural areas. However, this accuracy can be further improved by using radio-triangulation methods.
There are areas that require constant surveillance and this is where forensic judicial reconstitution and geofencing can offer a lot of value. Some of these sensitive areas include official buildings, international borders, hazardous waste repositories and military facilities.
Geofencing is a technology that can trigger an instant alert the moment somebody enters a predefined location. Where traditional geolocation solutions can only limit their capabilities to a list of known suspects, systems using what is known as passive collection will send a notification the moment anybody enters the area. This is based on using filters that are able to differentiate between suspicious intruders and authorised personnel. These systems can help to monitor in real time.
