Digital Forensic Framework for Cloud Computing Investigations_1

AbstractThe topic which has been chosen here for discussion is, “Use of Digital Forensic Framework in Cloud Computing Investigations.” This topic has been chosenbecause of the recent trend of increase in the role of cloud storage devices in daily needs of individuals and organizations[1]. These cloud storage devices facilitates through greater accessibility of data from any location, synchronization of data through two or more devices, providing space efficiency in the digital devices being used and is cost effective for the digital needs. However these benefits of cloud storage devices and services need to be secured by forensic investigations which is required to be carried regularly to eliminate any chances of fraud, manipulation of theft of data.IntroductionIn cloud storage device, all the data and information is maintained remotely and accessed online by the user from any location. With the increase in usage of such technology, there is a greater need to secure these systems and for which digital forensic investigation plays a major role.Related work or BackgroundVarious research has been conducted in this area to understand how cloud computing devices can be made secure andsafe for use in large scale [2]. The conduct of digital forensic investigations have provided data for the issues which are being faced in cloud devices and the improvements necessary. The scope of criminal exploitation is studied with the help of forensic investigations and what regulations are required. Two of the most common forensic frameworks- NIST and Mckemmish are used to understand the malicious practices. However with the helpof this paper we would review what furtherimprovements can be made in the digital forensic framework for cloud computing investigations. MethodologyThe method which would be used here for conducting the research is through qualitative approach. The impact of the current commonly used frameworks- McKemmish and NIST would be studied in detail from the literature review of the researches conducted in this field [3]. A new integrated approach would be analysed which would make the forensic investigations more effective. The qualitative research methodology would enable a detailed analysis of the situation and to find the cause and effect relationship for the suggested forensic investigation framework.
