The very intense Jovian magnetic field produces a magnetosphere where high-energy charged
particles are trapped, allowing the possibility for acceleration mechanism that could inject those particles in the open space. In the last decades, accelerated electrons from the Jupiter magnetosphere have been detected and studied in the interplanetary space. This work investigated whether the proton data obtained by the PAMELA space-borne detector between July 9th, 2006 to August 31th, 2014 shows signatures that arise from Jupiter. In this proceeding the basis of the analysis of cosmic ray protons by PAMELA are described and results will be shown at the conference.
