As the percentage of computer users that utilize cloud-computing services grows, more potential evidence for state and local law enforcement investigators is being stored with these cloud services and not on a local computer's hard drive. To address this problem, this project created a tool called Cloud Signature Creator as a solution that allows an investigator to locate potential areas of a computer's file system that contains evidence useful to their investigation. The Cloud Signature Creator solution leverages existing technologies and implements a new software application that provides the end user with a listing of files and locations that might indicate a cloud service was utilized on a suspect computer.
