Legal technology projects worked on at UX Sprint for Security and Privacy Tools, 1-2 March 2014

At least two legal technology projects were worked on at UX Sprint for Security & Privacy Tools, organized by OpenITP, 1-2 March 2014 in San Francisco.

Two legal technology projects scheduled to be worked on at the event were:

Martus

  • Description: This is a service that creates encrypted databases for “gathering testimony on human rights abuses”
  • Hackpad:https://surveillance.hackpad.com/Martus-qOGoR4NvZ3d
  • Goals: “improve the ways forms are created in Martus,” create “Responsive tutorials for Martus,” conduct “Martus User Testing,” and create “Martus Online Training and Help Documentation.”
  • Personnel: Barbra Masters, Collin Sullivan.
  • Code: https://code.google.com/p/martus/

People’s Intelligence

  • Description: this service “makes use of USSD, SMS and voice to establish a conversation with victims and witnesses of mass atrocities” and then to verify that evidence “using crowd-sourcing and ‘dumb’ mobile phones.”
  • Hackpad: https://surveillance.hackpad.com/Peoples-Intelligence-qU4LrmXcNp0
  • Goals: “List all possible ways to compromise the identity of the users and their data both on user’s devices, over the network and on future People’s Intelligence servers;” “list security protocols to be implemented as well as possible countermeasures for each identified attack;” “Best ways to secure data when it has reached People’s Intelligence servers”
  • Personnel: Christophe Billen
