Reconnaissance with OSINT technologies

The OSINT Framework

The OSINT framework is a cyber-security structure that consists of a collection of OSINT technologies that may be used to find information about a target more quickly and easily. I have been maintaining my version and many time I have found it very useful. If you want to have you own just fork it: or suggest what can be added to a list with pull request. Bellow additional requirements for some of the listed tools are indicators.

Google Dork (a.k.a Google Hacking) is a powerful technique to find the information.

The OSINT architecture encompasses a huge network of topics, linkages, and tools. There are numerous methods for obtaining information on the target; you must choose the best one for you, and you will be amazed at how effective the framework is.

So, if youโ€™re looking for something like an email address, an IP address, or phone records, you can find them all in one place, which is why the OSINT framework is so important for cyber-security and information discovery.
