Abstract

Cloud Computing is becoming a significant technology trend nowadays, but its abrupt rise also creates a brand new front for cybercrime investigation with various challenges. One of the challenges is to track down infringing sharing of copyrighted content in cloud. To solve this problem, we study a typical type of content sharing technologies in cloud computing, analyze the challenges that the new technologies bring to forensics, formalize a procedure to get digital evidences and obtain analytical results based on the evidences to track down illegal uploader. Furthermore, we propose a reasoning model based on the probability distribution in a Bayesian Network to evaluate the analytical result of forensics examinations. The proposed method can accurately and scientifically track down the origin infringing content uploader and owner.

Keywords: cloud forensics, peer to peer, file sharing, tracking, CloudFront
