Open Source Intelligence Techniques - 7th Edition (2019)


Completely Rewritten Seventh Edition Sheds New Light on Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) Collection and Analysis

It is time to look at OSINT in a different way. For many years, and within the previous six editions of this book, we have relied on external resources to supply our search tools, virtual environments, and investigation techniques. We have seen this protocol fail us when services shut down, websites disappear, and custom resources are dismantled due to outside pressures. This book aims to correct our dilemma. We will take control of our investigative resources and become self-reliant. There will be no more need for online search tools; we will make and host our own locally. We will no longer seek pre-built virtual machines; we will create and configure our own. This book puts the power back in your hands. The new OSINT professional must be self-sustaining and possess their own tools and resources. You will become a more proficient subject matter expert who will be armed with the knowledge and readiness to articulate the sources of your findings. Aside from eleven brand new chapters, hundreds of pages have been updated to keep your OSINT investigative methods fresh. Furthermore, an entire new section featuring Methodology, Workflow, Documentation, and Ethics provides a clear game plan for your next active investigation. All-new custom search tools, report templates, and detailed documents are included via download. Today, we start over.

7th Edition Updates

If you have the 6th edition of this book, you may want to know what has changed in this 7th edition. Overall, 1/2 of the book is brand new content, 1/4 is updated material, and 1/4 is recycled relevant instruction. The 7th edition is over 550 pages, but the retail price of the book remained unchanged. All expired and outdated resources were replaced with new methods throughout every chapter, and the OSINT flow charts were re-built to reflect all changes. All purchases include free download of a custom search tool which can be modified as needed and executed locally from your computers, custom Linux scripts to build your own virtual machines, and detailed cheat-sheets to simplify each process. The outline is below.
