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..

NTP Hacks Endangering Infrastructure
Great article, but just a word of caution.  I have recently been reading about the NTP hacks.   A weakness in NTP, which is widely used to synchronize the clocks in servers across networks, can be exploited to take over the computer.  CIO-Today has article titled "Feds Warn of New NTP Hack Endangering Infrastructure"
