The cloud computing model has been developed with promises to overcome the difficulties of other computing models. The low cost of computing resources, availability, location independence, and more focus on business objectives that this model promises are the most attractive features for companies. However, security issues are still the main obstacle that prevent widespread cloud computing adaptation. Digital forensics, a necessary process after any security incident, is faced with many challenges in the cloud computing environment. In this paper, we discuss the challenges digital forensics face in a cloud computing environment.
