Abstract

Cloud Computing is becoming more and more appealing to organisations and individuals as a platform for ubiquitous, on-demand, high power and low cost computation. Unsurprisingly, the benefits and opportunities of clouds attract not only legitimate users, but also cybercriminals. It exacerbates the possibility of large-scale illegal activities (e.g., storage and distribution of illicit material, deployment of botnet infrastructure, and phishing campaigns), facilitates novel business models, such as crime-as-a-service and “dark clouds”, and enables new forms of attacks and data misuse. This reality poses many challenges to different stakeholders in terms of preventing (the security aspect) and reacting (the forensics aspect) to those illegal activities. This thematic series contains technical papers and case-studies from academic and professional perspectices with a focus on advancing the practice of cloud forensics and cloud security.
