This paper describes how "Computer supported cooperative work", coped with security technologies and advanced knowledge management techniques, can support the penal judicial activities, in particular national and trans-national investigations phases when different judicial system have to cooperate together. Increase of illegal immigration, trafficking of drugs, weapons and human beings, and the advent of terrorism, made necessary a stronger judicial collaboration between States. J-WeB project (, financially supported by the European Union under the FP6 - Information Society Technologies Programme, is designing and developing an innovative judicial cooperation environment capable to enable an effective judicial cooperation during cross-border criminal investigations carried out between EU and Countries of enlarging Europe, having the Italian and Montenegrin Ministries of Justice as partners. In order to reach a higher security level, an additional biometric identification system is integrated in the security environment.
