Abstract [en]

Within the Swedish Police Authority, physical users’ actions within all systems that manage sensitive information, are registered and sent to an audit log. The audit log contains log entries that consist of information regarding the events that occur by the performing user. This means that the audit log continuously manages massive amounts of data which is collected, processed and stored. For the police authority, the audit log may be useful for proving a digital trail of something that has occurred.

An audit log is based upon the collected data from a security log. Security logs can collect datafrom most of the available systems and applications. It provides the availability for the organizationto implement network surveillance over the digital assets where logs are collected in real-time whichenables the possibility to detect any intrusion over the network. Furthermore, additional assets thatlog events are generated from are security software, firewalls, operating systems, workstations,networking equipment, and applications.

The actors in a court of law usually don’t possess the technical knowledge required to interpret alog events since they can contain variable names, unparsed data or undefined values. Thisemphasizes the need for a user-friendly artifact of the audit log events that facilitates its use.

Researching a way of displaying the current data format and displaying it in an improvedpresentable manner would be beneficial as an academic research by producing a generalizablemodel. In addition, it would prove useful for the internal investigations of the police authority sinceit was formed by their needs.
