Open source intelligence (OSINT) is a data gathering and collation technique that focuses on publicly accessible sources. Common sources include, but not limited to,  social media platforms, published content, company websites, forums, and also the dark web, with an end goal to find any information that could pose a risk to an organization. 

The gathered data is then combined, normalized, structured, and further analyzed to test the target organization’s operational security. In simpler terms, the data is harvested, enriched, and reported to collectively study the scope of attacks the organization can fall victim to. OSINT assessments can be a part of red team engagements or advanced external network penetration tests.

What is OSINT?

Open-Source Intelligence (OSINT) refers to collecting and analyzing publicly available information from various sources, including websites, social media platforms, news articles, blogs, forums, and more. It involves extracting actionable intelligence and insights from these open sources to better understand various subjects, such as individuals, organizations, events, or emerging trends.

OSINT is conducted ethically and legally, utilizing information that is freely accessible to the public. It involves data mining, web scraping, social media analysis, and advanced search methodologies to aggregate, filter, and analyze relevant information.
