Challenges of Digital Forensics in Cloud Computing Environment


Cloud computing is becoming most promising technology in recent days. It offers the scalable elastic services to many users at a time and it helps to access the resources quickly from cloud service provider. Digital forensics is part of computer forensics. Various challenges of cloud hinder the process of cloud forensics so that no standard framework for cloud forensics can be designed. This paper gathers the challenges and possible solutions. This paper also presents various challenges in every step of cloud forensics with probable solutions that can mitigate those challenges. This paper also proposed a solution for collecting snapshots as evidence in Eucalyptus Cloud and proposed effective framework for cloud forensics.
