Micah was very lucky to meet and get to work with the talented Ritu Gill, (@OSINTTechniques). At the recent Trace Labs (@TraceLabs) and SANS (@SANSDefense) Missing Persons CTF in Washington DC, we both noticed that many people wanted to participate but had no idea how to get started. After a few discussions, we decided to make an Introduction to OSINT video.
The brief video, posted below, highlights the following areas of OSINT:
- How to start your research
- User name searching
- Using frameworks and flowcharts
- People searching using emails and phone numbers
- Using Google advanced search operators
- Reverse image search
- Saving your data
Each of the above areas is briefly discussed so as to get you on your way to OSINTing quickly.
