Blockchain-Based Database to Ensure Data Integrity in Cloud Forensics

Authors(2) :-Chintha MadhumohanReddy, G Raghavendra

Alongside the expanding utilization of cloud services, security dangers are additionally expanding and assault techniques are winding up more differing. Be that as it may, there are as yet few measures and arrangements to manage security episodes in the cloud condition. Albeit numerous arrangements have been proposed through research on computerized criminology for reacting to security episodes, however it is as yet hard to demonstrate the uprightness of proof accumulation and capacity in the cloud condition. To take care of these issues, in this paper, we propose a blockchain based information logging and respectability service framework for cloud crime scene investigation. What's more, think about the performance of the proposed framework with the other blockchain based cryptographic money.
