Maltego - Paterva: A new train of thought

Posted on January 29, 2008 in Hack

Maltego is a program that can be used to determine the relationships and real world links between:
Groups of people (social networks)
Web sites
Internet infrastructure such as:
DNS names
IP addresses
Documents and files

These entities are linked using open source intelligence.

Maltego is easy and quick to install - it uses Java, so it runs on Windows, Mac and Linux.

Maltego provides you with a graphical interface that makes seeing these relationships instant and accurate - making it possible to see hidden connections.

Using the graphical user interface (GUI) you can see relationships easily - even if they are three or four degrees of separation away.

Maltego is unique because it uses a powerful, flexible framework that makes customizing possible. As such, Maltego can be adapted to your own, unique requirements.
