Author(s): Maximilian Bielecki, Gerald Quirchmayr

Abstract: This paper describes an approach for presentation and argumentation support systems within a legal IT forensic case. The first part will be dedicated to a very short analysis of the current legal situation in the context of Austrian laws and regulations. This analysis will be followed by a discussion about gathering digital evidence, which provides the basis for the entire argumentation process. The paper then continues with the presentation of our approach towards developing an automated expert software tool for supporting the generation of an argumentation strategy needed for taking a case to court. The core aim of this paper is to demonstrate the need for a tool which is capable of preparing an IT forensic case based on the digital evidence provided by forensic specialists. The results have to be presented in an understandable way so that also people who are not specialised within this kind of forensics can understand and work with the produced results.
