From a law enforcement and forensic investigation perspective, cloud computing can be thought of as a double edged sword. While on one hand, the gathering of digital evidence from cloud sources can bring with it complicated technical and cross-jurisdictional legal challenges. On the other, the employment of cloud storage and processing capabilities can expedite the forensics process and focus the investigation onto pertinent data earlier in an investigation. This paper examines the state-of-the-art in cloud-focused, digital forensic practises for the collection and analysis of evidence and an overview of the potential use of cloud technologies to provide Digital Forensics as a Service.||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Publisher:||IEEE||Copyright (published version):||2015 IEEE||Keywords:||Cloud computing; Cloud forensics; Cybercrime investigation; Digital forensics||DOI:||10.1109/ARES.2015.81||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||Conference Details:||International Workshop on Cloud Security and Forensics (WCSF 2015) held in conjunction with the 2015 10th International Conference on Availability, Reliability and Security (ARES 2015), Toulouse, France, 24 - 28 August, 2015|
