This paper examines the feasibility of developing a forensic acquisition tool in a distributed fle system. Using GFS and KFS distributed fle systems as vehicles and through representative scenarios and examples, the authors develop forensic acquisition processes and examine both the requirements of the tool and the distributed fle system must meet in order to facilitate the acquisition. The authors conclude that cloud storage has features that can be leveraged to perform acquisition (such as redundancy and replication triggers) but also maintains a complexity, which is higher than traditional storage systems leading to a need for forensic-readiness-by-design. © 2011, IGI Global.
