Cloud Forensics: A Discussion on Open Problems and State-of-the-Art Approaches


Rahat Masood, Muazzam Maqsood, Anam Mustaqeem, Muhammad Awais Azam


The emergence of highly distributed and complex systems raises new challenges for investigators and researchers which strongly need to be catered by linking the ground make up of digital forensic with the requirements and concepts of newly introduced systems and environments such as Cloud Computing. Several challenges exist when investigations are made in a Cloud because of the scope, and diversity of the data to be investigated along with the best investigatory practices that are evolving towards increased stringency as well. Therefore, this paper serves to highlight a number of research challenges which need to be addressed in support of forensic investigations in cloud environments. The paper also discusses state-of-the-art cloud forensic solutions which have been proposed to address the forensic issues in a Cloud. Through this paper, we also suggest some potential solutions in order to give better future prospects and to overcome these challenges.
