Access to Continues Research and Development on Digital Evidence & eDiscovery Law Practice in Nigeria by Digital Evidence and Cyber Forensic Institute, Nigeria.

Obsolescence is the state of being which occurs when an object, service or practice is no longer wanted even though it may still be in good working order. It refers to something that is already disused, discarded or antiquated. For instance, the architecture of hardware may change because machines are replaced, which means that some types of software will no longer be available, supported or maintained. In this respect, digital signature, a fundamental aspect of digital evidence in eDocument may be a problem. The digital signature software may still be available but the digital signature might have been applied using a version of the software compatible with Windows 98 but not the current Windows XP, Vista, etc. The signature software tool may have been overtaken by a new version rendering the others obsolete. Where the digital signature is not migrated to a newer version, its integrity becomes questionable.

Electronic books such as Digital Evidence & eDiscovery Law Practice in Nigeria would also in course time attain the same status of obsolescence. Mindful of this expectation, I have developed a working relationship with Digital Evidence and Cyber Forensic Institute, Nigeria for continued research and development in Digital Evidence & eDiscovery. Attention is focused on all courts relevant judgments in digital evidence and eDiscovery issues within and outside Nigeria, with a view to effective updates, critique and review. All users and subscribers to this book are beneficiaries of the research outcomes, subject to our terms of use and policy.
