Forensic science and in particular digital forensics as a business process has predominantly been focusing on generating evidence for court proceedings. It is argued that in today’s socially-driven, knowledge-centric, virtual-computing era, this is not resource effective. In past cases it has been discovered retrospectively that the necessary information for a successful identification and extraction of evidence was previously available in a database or within previously analysed files. Such evidence could have been proactively used in order to solve a particular case, a number of linked cases or to better understand the criminal activity as a whole. This paper will present a conceptual architecture for a distributed system that will allow forensic analysts to forensically fuse and semantically analyse digital evidence for the extraction of intelligence that could lead to the accumulation of knowledge necessary for a successful prosecution.
