Parasites ? Part 2

Posted on October 1, 2009. Filed under: All, forensic | Tags: , , |

AC and I have done some more thinking and talking about parasitic and symbiotic cloud computing and we have, more or less, come to the conclusion that there are more than just two categories. I’m not going to post much more about it here because we are now working on a paper to express the concepts more fully.

Will it help with investigation ? I have no idea – but I have certain fondness for anything that helps to characterise and classify systems and/or behaviours. It’s just possible that if we can describe the nature of the elements in the cloud, we can identify the more fruitful approaches to investigation.
