It is possible to check if the Acquisition.txt and Acquisition.xml files have not been altered using the “Acquisition checking” function available in the “Checking” menu.
Verification of acquisition locally
In the Checking menu, clicking on “Acquisition checking” opens the “Search folder” window in which you will have to select the folder containing the acquisition you want to verify; then clicking on [OK] the program checks the integrity of the two files Acquisition.txt and Acquisition.xml and shows the result of the verification.
The verification function uses a proprietary algorithm that at the end of the acquisition of the Web page generates a verification code that is saved in the Checking.faw file; this file must be present in the same folder together with Acquisition.txt and Acquisition.xml when verification is to be carried out.
Verification of online acquisition
If the acquisition data has also been saved on the FAW server, it is possible to check the integrity of the Acquisition.txt and Acquisition.xml files by comparing it with the data stored in the FAW database.
To do this, simply open the Checking menu and click on “Acquisition checking on line” the verification page will be displayed in the default browser.
The verification page uses the https protocol to ensure the security of the data provided by the user; on this page you will have to load the two files Acquisition.txt and Acquisition.xml to be checked, and then click the [Check] button; the program verifies the integrity of both files by certifying if they have not been altered. The same page, if the verification is correct, will show the data of the relative acquisition saved in the FAW server database.
This procedure is an additional tool for the technical consultant to verify the integrity of the acquisitions made with the FAW software.
