Abstract

There are many challenges for the digital forensic process in the cloud computing due to the distinguished features of the cloud computing environment. Many of well-known digital forensic methods and tools are not suitable for cloud computing environment. The multitenancy, multistakeholder, Internet-based, dynamics expendability, and massive data, logs and datasets are examples of the cloud computing environment features that make conducting digital forensics in the cloud computing environment a very difficult task. Therefore, there is a need to develop an appropriate digital forensic approach for cloud computing environment. Thus, this paper proposed a proactive digital forensic approach for cloud computing environment.
