Abstract

In the Literature, we can find several research works to help in the digital crime fight in order to prove integrity and authenticity of a published document, image or video. Among all the crimes, fake news certainly is among the most recurrent ones and needs to be mitigated. There are several Blockchain-based applications in order to make use of the benefits derived from technology, but little is found to verify the authenticity of Web content records as well as the history of all updates that have taken place in each Web content. Such kind of solution has become important nowadays as a way to cover the gap in the combat against fake news, for example. The purpose of this paper is to present BlockProof, a framework for verifying web content authenticity and integrity that offers a solution for content providers to register Web content, regardless of whether the page has dynamic or static content, in addition to enabling the consultation of the history of all records made for a given URL. We understand that such kind of solution may be useful to data producers/providers to provide evidence that they are in compliance with the fight against fake news, for instance.
