Mobile Cloud Computing: implications to smartphone forensic procedures and methodologies
There is a growing understanding of how to conduct digital forensic analysis on mobile devices. However, there is little understanding of how to apply digital forensic methodologies in Cloud computing, and even less understanding in how to apply forensic methodologies in mobile Cloud investigation. The aim of this thesis is to identify the impact of Cloud computing on Smartphone forensics and to test current mobile forensic tools, methodologies and procedures in different mobile Cloud forensic scenarios. Furthermore, the aim of this thesis is to provide recommendations in conducting forensic investigation in mobile Cloud computing. Future research direction within this research topic area will also be identified.
