The forensics is the application of digital forensics science in the cloud computing environment. technically, it consist of hybrid different approaches for the generation of digital evidence. It involves interactions among the clouds for facilitation among internal and external investigation. It is considered as legal implication of the tenant situation.
The delivery of cloud computing as service opposed to the product with the three types:
Saas (Software as a services)
Paas (Platform as a services)
Iaas (Infrastructure as a services)
Importance of cloud
The significance of security in computing and associated systems is of utter importance to the success of these undertakings. It is as a result of the noticeable opportunities existent in the field of cloud forensics that makes it of great importance. It is very important in
The existing opportunities in the cloud forensics include,
The abundance of data available and continuously being availed for the development of the system.
Possibility for further and greater cost optimization
CONFLICT IN CLOUD
Discovery of computable jurisdiction
Evidence preservation data integrity
Chain of custody
Chain of attributes
CHALLENGES FACE BY CLOUD
There are different challenges faced by the cloud forensics such as:
Storage system is no more local
Every cloud server contains files from different users.
Even if the data relates to a specific identification, separating it from other users data is considered as more difficult.
Other than corporate social responsibility there are no usual evidence which relates to the specific data files.
Healthcare, business, or any other security which relates to the data.
