Dear all,

I am interested in getting pointers to any research on policy languages for digital forensics, and whether there are any models, languages or technologies exist our there.  The idea of a digital forensic policy is similar to a security policy, however it determines what is acceptable behaviour (access, usage etc.) at forensics analysis time, rather than at normal operational time of a digital resource.  Such policies exist currently in the form of natural language guidelines (e.g. ACPO) for handling digital evidence, but I am not aware of any more technically enforceable policies (such as you would have XACML for managing security) and their infrastructures.

Any feedback most appreciated.
