OSINT Framework

Pulling information from the internet

osint framework

The OSINT Framework is a collection of OSINT tools displayed in a very organized topic-based tree.  This organization of intel sources makes it an amazing tool when you start your recon on a target.  Personally, I have a hard time keeping all my OSINT resources organized and knowing when to branch out from my favorites.   For me, that is where the OSINT Framework proves its place in my toolkit.  As you go through and gather more and more information, new avenues of OSINT tools become available and are quickly laid out as options.

What is OSINT?

In a nutshell, OSINT (Open Source Intelligence) is the collection and analyzing information that is gathered from public or open sources.  These open sources can be something as simple as a Google search or searching through social media such as Facebook or Linkedin.   You will be AMAZED by how much data there is flowing out there freely (or cheaply) you can gather on individuals or companies.  Most targeted (or semi-targeted) attacks start with some type of OSINT data gathering.
