Cloud computing became the most talked about technology in information and communication technology in recent times. Many technology majors are using this technology and the scope of cloud computing is increasing day-by-day. Very important concern of the industry now is the security. The cloud computing architectures often lack support for computer forensic investigations. Besides this, the existing digital forensics tools cannot cope with the dynamic nature of the cloud. This paper examines the challenges of digital forensics in the cloud, possible attacks on cloud-evidence, and mitigation strategies against those challenges.
