Research Area:  Digital Forensics
Cloud computing facilitates the consumption of virtually infinite resources with reduced cost and less maintenance overheads. But the implicit elasticity property of cloud can be misused by adversaries to perform some attacks-either using the cloud or to the cloud itself. An astute intruder will follow certain anti-forensic measures to delete the traces of an attack. In that situation, the evidence identification and collection from the cloud becomes difficult which in turn reduces the efficiency of the entire forensic investigation. To handle this, we propose a model called improved Cloud Forensic Readiness (iCFR). We discuss iCFR in detail along with its practical implications when applied to the cloud environment.
