Dear Readers,

Satellite technology has become a ubiquitous feature of modern life, providing integral services such as communication, navigation, streaming, Earth observation, and scientific research. Alongside this growing dependence, however, comes a corresponding increase in vulnerabilities. Consequently, the field of satellite forensics has emerged as a specialized discipline concerned with the gathering and analysis of satellite data to investigate incidents such as unauthorized access, security breaches, and collisions with space debris. As the number of satellite-related incidents continues to rise, so does the importance of satellite forensics in mitigating the risks associated with this technology. We would like to introduce these subjects to you in this issue. You can see where all of this led us by looking through a few truly fascinating articles that we gathered. Kate Libby wrote the article that presents all topics in general, and you will see how interesting this topic is and how useful knowing this technology can be. DR. Sapna V M tells you how Satellite forensics, a quite promising field, involves the investigation and analysis of satellite images and data to track information pertinent to legal and investigative processes.  George Antoniou, in his article, delineates the potential digital forensic challenges and discusses the state of digital forensic readiness in the context of 6G satellite and IoT networks. And Rhonda Johnson, in her article, delves into space satellite forensics, exploring the challenges faced, and the tools used to investigate satellite hacking incidents. Moreover, in this issue, you can read fantastic articles written by Alameen Karim Merali, Harsh Behl, and Daniele Ferreira. Our last great source of knowledge is the interviews with two famous experts: Brett Shavers and Barry Grundy. Definitely, you will find your favourite article and a new piece of knowledge in this issue. This publication would not have been possible without the contributions of our authors, reviewers, editors, and proofreaders. It has been a pleasure working with you and learning from your insights.

We look forward to continuing to collaborate and inviting others to create more exceptional content with us. Together, let's make a meaningful impact in our field.

Don't miss out on this must-read issue!

SATELLITE FORENSICS 
by KATE LIBBY

Satellites have become indispensable elements of modern-day life. This technology is playing a vital role in communication, navigation, streaming services, Earth observation, and scientific research. As our dependence on satellite technology grows, the number of vulnerabilities grows with it; so does the need for satellite forensics, a specialized field focused on gathering and analyzing data from satellites to investigate incidents, such as space debris collisions, unauthorized access, or security breaches.

UNLOCKING MYSTERIES BEYOND EARTH FROM ABOVE: THE WORLD OF SATELLITE
by DR. SAPNA V M

Satellites, sometimes called “Digital Television”, orbiting high above the Earth's atmosphere, have become essential tools for communication, navigation, weather monitoring, and national security, but there are also natural satellites. For example, Earth is a satellite because it orbits the sun, and the moon is a satellite because it orbits the Earth. Satellite forensics, a quite promising field, involves the investigation and analysis of satellite images and data to track information pertinent to legal and investigative processes.

UNLOCKING THE ORBITAL DOMAIN: DIGITAL FORENSICS IN SATELLITE AND UAV TECHNOLOGIES
by GEORGE ANTONIOU, PH.D.

The evolution of digital technology has significantly broadened the scope of digital forensics, a field traditionally tethered to terrestrial digital systems. The advent of satellite and Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) technologies has opened up new frontiers, marking a significant stride towards a global digital ecosystem. These technologies are the linchpins in a gamut of critical sectors including global communication, navigation, and surveillance. The imperative to safeguard these systems against burgeoning cyber threats has catalyzed the emergence of satellite and UAV digital forensics. This discourse endeavors to traverse the nascent field of satellite and UAV digital forensics, elucidating on the symbiotic relationship between emerging digital forensic tools, methodologies, and the inherent challenges.

TOOLS USED FOR SPACE SATELLITE FORENSICS 
by RHONDA JOHNSON

Satellites are crucial in modern communication, navigation, weather forecasting, and national security. As our dependence on satellite technology grows, so does the potential for malicious activities, including hacking and unauthorized access. Space satellite forensics has emerged as a vital field for investigating and mitigating the impact of satellite attacks. In this article, we delve into space satellite forensics, exploring the challenges faced, and the tools used to investigate satellite hacking incidents.

WINDOWS DIGITAL CYBER-CRIME FORENSICS INVESTIGATION 
by ALAMEEN KARIM MERALI

This article mainly covers a lot about Windows Forensics in-depth and while there are other forensics for operating systems such as iOS, Mac OS and Linux. They’ve not specifically been covered here. There’s even malware analysis which is a broader topic covering each operating system, which I’ll make an article about soon as well. Nonetheless, I hope this article helps you understand more about Windows Forensics and helps you kick-start your journey in investigating cyber-crime in the Windows world.

FOUR WAYS TO CRAFT A DEFENSIBLE NARRATIVE WITH DIGITAL FORENSICS
by HARSH BEHL

Every prosecutor understands that in order to secure a conviction, they must present the evidence in a compelling narrative. Whether it’s a murder trial or a financial crime, absent a well-constructed narrative arc, even the most talented prosecutor will struggle to hold the attention of their audience. It’s how the story is told and the way in which it’s presented to a jury that can make the difference between a guilty or not-guilty verdict.

CYBER THREAT INTELLIGENCE 101
by DANIELE FERREIRA

Cyber Threat Intelligence, or CTI, emerged with the creation of the first Military Intelligence departments in the mid-19th century. However, this concept is much older and is intrinsic to the evolution of humanity, demonstrated by numerous espionage cases during the period of globalization and territorial conflicts. During major wars, this need evolved, and to gain a military advantage, it was not enough to merely know but rather to know everything about the enemy.

INTERVIEW WITH BRETT SHAVERS
by EWA & EFORENSICS TEAM

Brett Shavers is a former law enforcement detective and currently is a digital forensics consultant to law firms in civil litigation along with an occasional government engagement  in high profile investigations. Brett has been assigned to local state, and federal task forces working all types of cases, including international and national security matters.  He has been trained by several US federal agencies, quite a few forensic software companies, and higher educational schools.  Brett has published several books, including Placing the Suspect Behind the Keyboard, Hiding Behind the Keyboard, and the X-Ways Forensics Practitioner’s Guide.  Brett’s greatest teachers have been those he wined and dined with while undercover. You can find him rambling away at www.brettshavers.com.

INTERVIEW WITH BARRY GRUNDY
by EWA & EFORENSICS TEAM

A U.S. Marine Corps veteran, Barry Grundy has been working in the field of digital forensics since the mid-1990s. Starting at the Ohio Attorney General's office as a criminal investigator, and eventually  joining U.S. Federal Law Enforcement as a digital forensics analyst and computer crimes investigator in 2001. He holds a Bachelor of Science in Forensic Science from Ohio University, and A Master's Degree in Forensic Computing and Cybercrime Investigations from University College Dublin. Barry is the author and maintainer of the Law Enforcement and Forensic Examiner's Introduction to Linux ([LinuxLEO](https://linuxleo.com)). This practical beginner's guide to Linux as a digital forensics platform has been available for over 20 years and has been used by a number of academic institutions and law enforcement agencies around the world to introduce students of DFIR to Linux. Teaching, particularly Linux forensics and open source DFIR tools, is his passion.
