Blockchain Evidence Locker
Law enforcement is faced with a massive growth in the amount of digital evidence that needs to remain true, tamperproof, and with a verifiable chain of custody. Car cams, body cams, CCTV, computers, and all forms of communication records, are driving this growth. Leonovus introduces the Blockchain Evidence Locker to address these needs.
The Blockchain Evidence Locker enables law enforcement organizations to address their storage requirements with confidence that their digital evidence remains available and cryptographically-verifiable, as well as total awareness of access and tampering.
Police forces, prosecutors and the courts need to maintain a detailed chain of custody regarding stored digital evidence. Therefore, the Blockchain Evidence Locker records all evidence submissions, it supports access monitoring and reporting new evidence submissions, records updates, and deletion events all within the Blockchain Evidence Locker. Access to the BEL is managed by a responsible agency or police force.
Blockchain Evidence Locker allows authorized third-party organizations to access the evidence and auditors can view and verify all digital activity regarding evidentiary assets. This includes having a detailed audit of any changes to the assets as well as having absolute knowledge of who has submitted, accessed, updated, or deleted the digital evidentiary information
Enterprise customers are also keenly interested in the Leonovus Blockchain Evidence Locker to address their corporate governance requirement for data security and compliance like GDPR, HIPAA, and PCI.
The Blockchain Evidence Locker developed by Leonovus is a game changer for enterprises, law enforcement agencies and police forces that need to improve evidentiary asset management and at the same time reduce their IT overhead and storage costs.
Data storage challenges for law enforcement and public safety
Law enforcement agencies and public safety organizations are faced with exponential data growth and are challenged to ensure this data remains available and secure. Leonovus offers a cost-efficient and compliant blockchain-hardened software-defined storage solution that ensures data remains tamper proof and that chain-of-evidence is maintained.
Data creation growth, without spending more
Law enforcement agencies and public safety organizations are dealing with fixed budgets but are continually expanding types, and quantities of data they need to store. This imbalance has caused many agencies to begin to realize that software-defined storage like Leonovus is a risk-averse cost-effective solution to their budgetary needs. Moreover, without being locked to a single vendor, Leonovus patented technology can reconstitute files from the endpoints that are most cost-efficient.
Data storage with a chain of evidence
Providing an auditable chain of evidence for each piece of data is crucial for the admissibility of that evidence in the law enforcement process. Leonovus offers this through encryption, shredding and spreading, of the data from retrieval to rest. Additionally, the solution offers a multi-cloud deployment that can reach up to 6-9’s reliability when desired, error correction, alongside a blockchain hardened auditable chain of evidence.
Enhanced encryption for data security
When dealing with critical evidence the importance of keeping data secure is paramount. By avoiding vendor lock-in coupled with patented data fragment spreading and recovery technology, Leonovus offers a storage solution that ensures that if a data breach occurs hackers receive nothing of value, All while keeping your network owned, controlled, and open to authenticated users.
Managing data regulations and compliance
Law enforcement and public safety officials need to adhere to many regulatory compliance standards. To ensure data integrity the Leonovus storage solution is CJIS compliant and will continue to adhere to any changes to the CJIS compliance standards in the future.

Cost efficient data storage
Utilizing Leonovus to store files in a hybrid-cloud or multi-cloud storage deployment provides a cost-efficient solution that ensures no vendor lock-in while adhering to CJIS requirements. Law enforcement and public safety agencies are stuck with fixed budgets and exponential data growth. Utilizing Leonovus will help ensure that their data storage utilizes an optimizing technology to capitalize on cost-efficient solutions offered through public cloud storage providers while being able to utilize their on-premises capabilities.
Enhanced data security
When data is uploaded onto the Leonovus object storage system it is immediately encrypted, the file is then shredded into data fragments and spread across multiple endpoints. Through this process, law enforcement agencies and public safety organizations have the piece of mind that even if a data breach occurs, the attackers will receive nothing of value.
Chain of evidence
When it comes to data, law enforcement officials and public safety organizations need to have the utmost priority on ensuring data integrity. With a chain of evidence that Leonovus provides for each file, the Leonovus solution will inform agencies who has viewed and had accessed the file.
No vendor lock-in
Law enforcement agencies and public safety organizations will have the freedom of choosing what endpoints, quantities, and cloud storage providers they want all without the risk of vendor lock-in. This will help ensure these organizations are not leveraged for high egress fees.
From input, transit, rest, and retrieval all files entered into the Leonovus system are tamper-proof. Therefore, law enforcement officials and public safety agencies can feel secure that the information that they have input into the system will be an exact version of the original.
Data storage compliance
Data storage compliance regulations and standards continue to grow and become more stringent. This has caused issues for many law enforcement and public safety agencies. The Leonovus solution helps reduce the headache of data storage for these agencies because it is CJIS compliant and is FIPS 140-2 certified.
Through a 25/16 data algorithm, Leonovus delivers to law enforcement agencies and public safety organizations six-9s (99.9999%) of data recovery probability and business continuity.
Adding blockchain technology to our optimized storage process allows Leonovus the ability to provide law enforcement and public safety organizations cryptographically enhanced security and provides immutability to their data.
The Leonovus solution provides law enforcement agencies and public safety organizations the ability to reconstitute their entire file even if a node or endpoint storing fragments of that file goes down, or becomes undesirable.
