Course Overview

Joern Weber - Maltego & Social Links - OSINT Training - Corma

Hello, my name is Jörn Weber. I’m an investigator and trainer for Maltego & Social Links.

In this course, I will teach you everything you need to know about getting started with Maltego. We will start with the fundamentals and then move on to the more advanced techniques. To be clear, this course is not covering the free “Maltego community edition.” Instead, I’ll focus on the professional versions: 

The Classic: commercial version which returns 10,000 results per Transform, along with access to all of Maltego’s functions OSINT Transforms and commercial hub partners)
The XL: commercial version designed for large investigations that allow users to view up to 1 million pieces of information.

The focus for this course is also not on penetration testing, hacking or preparing for social engineering or social hacking attacks. Instead, the focus is on use in investigations and OSINT research by police authorities, private investigators, intelligence services, corporate security and similar areas.

Students enrolled in the course learn the Maltego “secret sauce.” This is when we move from the essentials of the user interface to the Transforms and how they work.

For best results when using Maltego, it is important for you to understand how the software changes the way you work. You will become familiar with its capabilities before you start using it personally.

During the course, you will learn everything you need to know about the best settings for your environment, User Interface, Transform Hub, and how to manage Transforms. We also cover Standard Entities (PATERVA CTAS) like Alias, Person, Email Address, Domains, Phone Number, Phrase and Social Network.
The course also deals with which Transformations can be performed with these entities. You will also learn everything you need to know about the data sources in order to interpret the results correctly.

 

We examine the Investigate Tab in detail, and discuss the various options that it gives you for plotting a graph. By the time you have completed the course, you will be familiar with the best methods for using Transforms in different scenarios.
You will learn how to create real-world relationships between people, groups, webpages, domains, networks, and Internet infrastructure.

The course contains many exercises so that the participant can practice the use of the software.

We explain the various data sources like Whois records, search engines, social networks and various API. It is of critical importance that you understand where the data from Transforms is being gathered from, which is why it is covered in some detail.
By the time you complete the course, you will be highly skilled in using the tool and highly equipped to master any challenges. You can start enhancing the tool with additional Transforms. (We cover this material in a Bonus video during the course.)
