Abstract

Cloud computing is becoming commonplace in industry. With this rise in adoption and use, there is a growing requirement to enable forensic investigators to collect, analyze and produce evidence that can be used in court cases. Unfortunately, traditional and digital forensics techniques cannot be directly applied to the cloud computing paradigm. In this paper, we explore the need created by cloud computing log forensics, discuss the issues involved, and highlight the unsolved research challenges in the space.
