Remote working is driving the discovery and use of open source intelligence techniques in order to achieve competitive advantage.
The Open Source Intelligence OSINT toolkit combines elements of the OSINT framework with a list of suitable tools. The listing of tools is the result of crowdsourcing by OSINT community members on GitHub. The initial list was derived from i-intelligence’s OSINT Tools and Resources Handbook and is being developed and updated by the OSINT community members. I-intelligence is dedicated to helping improve the ability to collect, analyse, manage, share and communicate information, whether in support of government policy or pursuit of competitive advantage.
When you first see the OSINT Toolkit, you probably think, blimey! Where do I start? The key is to build a workflow that uses the OSINT framework and a mix of tools and techniques to achieve a required outcome. Here is a useful guide on creating an OSINT workflow from @tenacioustek, Here is a fantastic overview by Maarten Schenk on how he used a range of OSINT tools to uncover a Macedonian fake news network, Here is Bellingcat‘s online investigation toolkit. Explore, stay curious and have fun. We hope you enjoy the OSINT Toolkit.
