Digital Forensic Investigation and Cloud Computing

In this paper, the authors aim to be a high-level introduction into fundamental concepts of both digital forensic investigations and cloud computing for non-experts in one or both areas. Once fundamental concepts are established, this work begins to examine cloud computing security-related questions, how past technological and methodological flaws are inherited by cloud computing models, as well as the new security issues that are unique to the cloud. By looking at security related issues, attack vectors will be generally defined, and the effectiveness of current digital forensic practices will be analyzed against these situations.
