Say I have some Apache logs that show brute force attempts on a login page. I've singled out the IP, and found out who the culprit was. How can I show to a third party that I didn't makeup the entries in those logs?
Is there a way to systematically prove through some means of hashing, or system verification that the logs aren't edited in any way?
The scenario I gave above is purely hypothetical. But was wondering if you could verify logs like that somehow.
