#warcrime #evidence #web3 #justice

在战争中,许多的战争受害者、参与者、或是任何在一线亲眼目睹士兵犯下战争罪的人冒死使用个人设备将某些重要画面捕捉下来,但最后却可能因为种种原因而无法让证据为社会正义发声。而这,不仅仅是战争时才会出现的偶发性问题。

在数字时代,所有数字证据都不可避免地有两大问题:一、面对着如deep fake等操纵数据的威胁;二、并没有任何平台可以一站式验证这些数字证据的正当性

但是Starling Lab为此提供了新的解决方案。

Starlinglab官方介绍(来源:Starling Framework/YouTube)

谁是Starling Lab? Starling Lab为南加州大学Shoah基金会、斯坦福大学和Protocol Labs发起的团队,是世界上首个专门通过去中心化工具去提升人类权益的去中心化工具。成立宗旨为通过提高数据可信度来维护社会公义与民主。

在Web3蓬勃发展的阶段,Starling Lab将区块链(Blockchain)共享账本(Distributed Ledger Technology)等工具的成熟视为通过新技术重塑规范和法律的机会。以俄乌战争为例,Starling Lab认为,若是将Web3技术运用得当,便可以通过不可更改的兼管链完善问责制,保护证据提供方和相关人士的隐私权。因此,该团队开发了一个“Starling Framework”框架,用以安全地捕获、存储和验证数字内容,放眼解决数字信任危机。

目前,Starling Lab的数字信任解决方案为Web 3技术的集合体,包括 L1 协议、L2 协议、NFT 和安全硬件钱包(Secured Hardware Wallet),以创建一个能够安全地端到端保存数字证据的机制。虽然这个机制的技术很复杂,但整体而言能够达成三大重要目标,即捕获、储存和验证

  1. 捕获 (Capture)——在捕获时注册和密封数字内容及其元数据
  2. 存储(Store) — — 加密内容,保存在去中心化网络上
  3. 验证(Verify) — — 记录专家评估和审计内容的证明

目前,该框架已经开始加密验证和保存所有来自应用程序、社交媒体和网站的开源情报。在俄乌战争进行之际,他们也对所有流传在社交平台上的“战争罪”证据进行验证。利用Web3技术,Starling Lab有望帮助司法机关和任何受害人获得更公正透明的司法结果。
