Cloud Forensics Framework for LEAs
Internet-based cloud technology is a network of remote data centers often placed beyond the country's legal frontiers worldwide. Contrary to the benefits of cloud computing, it is also a target of cybercriminals who may affect its resources on a larger scale by a single exploit. For protecting the cloud resources and increasing the confidence of cloud users, it is necessary to make one accountable for disrupting its services based on relevant evidence that proves someone's guilt in a court of law.
A study conducted by our partner Privanova set out to design a framework that mitigates the dependency of cloud service providers by collecting the evidence of a security incident outside the cloud by colluding the Internet service providers and law enforcement.
