Abstract


Cloud computing is at its infancy stage and its security is still an open research issue. Malicious users take advantage of the current lack of advanced security mechanisms in the cloud. Cloud computing paradigm enables users to access computing resources without necessarily owning physical infrastructures. It is therefore easy for an attacker who intends to perform malicious activities in the cloud to create a remotely hosted desktop, perform their activities and then destroy the desktop later. With the remotely hosted desktop destroyed, there is very little evidence left that can be collected by forensic experts using traditional static digital forensic methods. The objective of this paper is to review the work of researchers in the area of digital forensic challenges in cloud environment.

 

Keywords: Cloud Computing, digital forensic, Hosted desktop
