Forensic droplets & puddles from the cloud

Abstract

Addressing the consequences of cybercrime is challenging. Technological innovation coupled with the desire to interact and have access to everything everywhere has seen the development of systems that are integrated around pushed-based cloud solutions. This has created a proliferation of data endpoints duplicating sources of evidentiary material, but also potentially modifying existing data. This paper models the effect of the natural movement of data within pushed-based cloud formations and its forensic impact. It examines the potential forensic opportunities that exist, but also the challenges that must be overcome to ensure valid and reliable results can continue to be established.
