Provenance Logger For Linux
Progger (Provenance Logger) is a kernel-space logger designed to track data activity in cloud systems. It has the potential to empower cloud stakeholders (users) by allowing them to trace what has happened to their data in the cloud. It can also be used by security analysts to collect provenance data from the lowest possible atomic data actions, and enables several higher-level tools to be built for effective end-to-end tracking of data provenance. Progger has been implemented to be tamper-evident, accurately synchronise timestamps across several machines, efficiently log the root usage of the system and reduce clutter in the log files.
