Re: NTP Hacks Endangering Infrastructure
Both NTP and SNMP protocols have been and are still actively used in amplification attacks such as KoD packets. In NTPv4 and SNMPv4 there are no good technical means to counteract abuse of these protocols other than to disable them completely.

7 Criteria for Enriching Digital Evidence
I honestly find the article difficult to follow under the context of your theme.  Criteria examples overlap content and lack depth to be useful.  ESI is the major theme in your article but it represents 3 of your 7 criteria.  Why not buundle it as one point.   Dont get me wrong there are good points regarding time sync but you also forget the most imortant criteria is the forensic investigator her/himself..
