Overview of this book

Discover how to perform a complete forensic investigation of large-scale Hadoop clusters using the same tools and techniques employed by forensic experts. This book begins by taking you through the process of forensic investigation and the pitfalls to avoid. It will walk you through Hadoop’s internals and architecture, and you will discover what types of information Hadoop stores and how to access that data. You will learn to identify Big Data evidence using techniques to survey a live system and interview witnesses. After setting up your own Hadoop system, you will collect evidence using techniques such as forensic imaging and application-based extractions. You will analyze Hadoop evidence using advanced tools and techniques to uncover events and statistical information.

Accessing AWS S3 from applications

AWS S3 is highly scalable and durable object storage. You only have to pay for the storage you actually use. S3 replicates data in multiple data centers within the region. Further, AWS S3 introduces cross-region replication that replicates your data across AWS regions. In this recipe, we cover both uploading objects to and downloading objects from AWS S3.

How to do it…

  1. Installing AWS Java SDK.

    In your Maven dependency section, add the following dependency for AWS Java SDK Version

  2. Create a bucket.

    The following sample Java program creates a S3 bucket called laurenceluckinbill in the Singapore region:

        // Create S3 bucket.
            public static void CreateBucket() {
            // Create BasicAWSCredentials with Access Key Id and Secret Access Key.
