Cloud Computing Log Evidence Forensic Examination Analysis

  title={Cloud Computing Log Evidence Forensic Examination Analysis},
  author={Sean S. E. Thorpe and Tyrone Grandison and Indrajit Ray},
Forensic analysis in the context of physical evidence is a relatively mature field. The computerization of society has led to the emergence of digital forensics and now the popularity of cloud computing has sparked interest into cloud forensics. Our goal in this paper is to enable cloud forensics, by using the theory of abstraction layers to describe the purpose and goals of virtual machine (VM) forensic digital examination analysis tools. Using VM abstraction as a meta abstraction layer, we… CONTINUE READING
