National Archives & Records Administration Selects PageFreezer for Social Media Archiving

We’re pleased to announce that after bidding on an exciting project among other competitors in the social media archiving space, we have been chosen as the archiving provider for the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) - the nation’s record keeper.

National Archives and Records Administration

In September 2017, NARA issued an RFP seeking the most capable partner to archive over 140 social media accounts. The expectation included real-time archiving of various social media networks, collection of the complete social media conversations including photos, videos and metadata, powerful full-text search functionality, advanced rules-based retention scheduling, and data export capabilities to WARC for long term preservation.

Our RFP response highlighted the various strengths and top features of our archiving software, our years of experience archiving active pages with high capacity content, and the flexibility and affordability of our comprehensive software and service. After a long and detailed process, we are very much looking forward to working with the nation’s record keeper.

More Legal Lessons Learned: 5 Times Social Media Evidence Was Denied in Court

Digital content (like web pages, Facebook posts, and tweets) is increasingly being submitted as evidence during legal matters—but it isn’t always being admitted by courts. As with any other form of evidence, digital evidence needs to meet a certain standard in order to be deemed admissible—and in many cases this comes down to how the evidence was collected and authenticated. If the collection and authentication process wasn’t handled correctly—and the method employed didn’t prove authenticity beyond any reasonable doubt—the evidence typically would not be accepted.

Why You Should Use SHA-256 in Evidence Authentication

In a previous article, we discussed why hash values are crucial in evidence collection and digital forensics. Following on from that, it’s worth discussing why Pagefreezer specifically makes use of the SHA-256 hashing algorithm when applying a digital signature to one of our records.
