Increasing interest in and use of cloud computing services presents both opportunities for criminal exploitation and challenges for law enforcement agencies (LEAs). For example, it is becoming easier for criminals to store incriminating files in the cloud computing environment but it may be extremely difficult for LEAs to seize these files as the latter(More)
A computer’s operating system, applications and data are typically installed and stored in the ‘traditional’ computing environment. In a cloud computing environment, individuals and businesses work with applications and data stored and/or maintained on shared machines in a web-based environment rather than physically located in the home of a user or a(More)
We examine various indistinguishability-based proof models for key establishment protocols, namely the Bellare & Rogaway (1993, 1995), the Bellare, Pointcheval, & Rogaway (2000), and the Canetti & Krawczyk (2001) proof models. We then consider several variants of these proof models, identify several subtle differences between these variants and models, and(More)
Cloud storage services such as the popular Microsoft© SkyDrive© provide both organisational and individual users a cost-effective, and in some cases free, way of accessing, storing and disseminating data. The identification of digital evidence relating to cloud storage services can, however, be a challenge in a digital forensic investigation. Using SkyDrive(More)
The Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) protocol is commonly used to establish Voice over IP (VoIP) calls. IETF SIP standards do not specify a secure authentication process thus allowing malicious parties to impersonate other parties or to charge calls to other parties. This paper proposes an extension to the SIP protocol that uses an identity-based(More)
In 2004, Zhu and Ma proposed a new and efficient authentication scheme claiming to provide anonymity for wireless environments. Two years later, Lee et al. revealed several previously unpublished flaws in Zhu-Ma’s authentication scheme and proposed a fix. More recently in 2008, Wu et al. pointed out that Lee et al.’s proposed fix fails to preserve anonymity(More)
The storage as a service (StaaS) cloud computing architecture is showing significant growth as users adopt the capability to store data in the cloud environment across a range of devices. Cloud (storage) forensics has recently emerged as a salient area of inquiry. Using a widely used open source cloud StaaS application – ownCloud – as a case study, we(More)
