Day 1 – Advanced Open Source Intelligence Gathering with Maltego and Paterva Ctas – Workshop with Leo Reitano

Day 1 – Advanced Open Source Intelligence Gathering with Maltego and Paterva Ctas – Workshop with Leo Reitano

Goals

The Maltego training program will teach participants a systematical, methodological approach to design, setup, and conduct investigations through open sources. We will show a practical, hands-on, training that will give the students all the skills and tools they need to do an effective Open Source Intelligence research and analysis-

Participants will return home with all the abilities they need to execute a correct Internet Search by using Maltego (Paterva) one of the most advanced software available for the OSINT.

Maltego is an important piece of digital investigator/journalist tools as by using it is possible to cross a vast quantity of data and visualize all the connections between them. There are many others network visualization programs, but Maltego is the only one capable of researching in real time the information needed to carry on digital investigations.

Moreover, Maltego is much more than a simple research tool. Is a digital ecosystem fully customizable by the users and with a rich quantity of third-party software that can be easily and rapidly implemented and put into action.

The use of Maltego is of absolute importance for all the professionals who use open sources to carry on investigations and especially for journalists as they more than others need to get the “big picture” hidden in certain details.

Investigative Journalism requires in-depth investigations capable of dealing with a complex universe of facts and events. Therefore a software that can piece together all these details as crucial importance to investigative journalists that are required to discover hidden scenario and occult wrongdoings.

Topics (Day 1)

  • Understanding OSINT (theoretical and technical aspects);
  • Setting and preparation of Maltego Dashboard
  • Entities and transforms Maltego bread and butter
  • DNS Intelligence by using the Paterva CTAS
  • Importing CSV and datasheet in Maltego
  • Maltego as Visual Investigative Scenario
  • integrating Maltego with DNS Intelligence platforms and Google Dorks

In 2019 we offer 2-day workshops for the first time. On the one hand for participants who want to deal with the topics intensively and on the other hand for attendees of our workshops in the past three years who want to update and deepen their knowledge.

Spielkinder lesen für Bier!

LESEN FÜR BIER #2


Wir knüpfen an den Erfolg des Literaturfestes an: Lesen für Bier geht in die nächste Runde.

Das Konzept bleibt gleich: Die SPIELKINDER lesen alles, was ihr vorbeibringt: Schundheftchen, Jerry-Cotton, Effi Briest, Perry Rhodan, BILD, Speisekarte, Karl Ove Knausgård, Lustiges Taschenbuch, Gedichte aus dem Giftschrank, Beipackzettel. Ganz egal! Am Ende entscheidet das Publikum per Applaus, was besser war: der Text oder Maja und Till. Gewinnt der Text, bekommt ihr das Bier, war die Performance besser, trinken die Spielkinder. PROST!

Und so geht’s: vor der Veranstaltung könnt ihr einen Text abgeben, den ihr auf der Bühne sehen wollt. Irgendeinen Text, der euch berührt, Euch Staunen lässt, der aufrüttelt, schockiert, oder euch die Lachtränen in die Auge treibt. Per Zufall wird dann ein Text vom Stapel gezogen, den die SPIELKINDER, ohne zu wissen was auf sie zukommt, lesen und performen müssen. Und dafür nur eine begrenzte Zeit haben! 


Die SPIELKINDER sind 4 Geschwister, die sich 2009 zusammengetan haben um Herzensangelegenheiten zu realisieren. Hier lesen, singen, spielen, schreiben und machen sie alles, worauf sie Lust haben.

Am 9. November – Ein Datum und die deutsche Geschichte

Auf welche Geschichte berufen wir uns heute? Welche Tage sind in unser kollektives Gedächtnis eingebrannt?
Heimatgold

Heimatgold

Ein Bauernbub aus Kolbermoor stemmt jeden Tag Mehlsäcke im Dachkammerl über der Sägemühle des Großvaters. Und er hat ein Ziel: der stärkste Mann der Welt zu werden. Verwundet, aber nicht gebrochen geht Josep Straßberger nach dem ersten Weltkrieg in die große Stadt zu den Gewichthebern des TSV 1860 München. Bald folgt Titel auf Titel: Deutscher Meister, Weltmeister, Weltrekordhalter – und sein größter Triumph: die Olympischen Spiele 1928. Die schillernden Zwanzigerjahre bringen den wirtschaftlichen Aufschwung, mit Gastronomie und Pferden häuft er ein Vermögen an. Doch dann kommen die Nationalsozialisten.

Wir wollen von Andreas Lechner etwas aus seinem neuen Buch "Heimatgold" hören und mit ihm über das Leben seines Großvaters, des Gewichthebers Josef Staßberger, sprechen. In "Heimatgold" taucht er tief in dessen Leben ein und entwirft dabei das grandiose Sittengemälde eines halben Jahrhunderts deutscher Geschichte, von der Jahrhundertwende bis in die frühen Tage des Wirtschaftswunders.

Andreas Lechner ist wie sein Großvater ein Bayrisches Original und heute als Regisseur und Produzent tätig. Und als Autor, Musiker und Schauspieler in Film und Theater unterwegs. Zuletzt war er am Berliner Ensemble und im Kinofilm „Zwei Herren im Anzug“ von Josef Bierbichler.

Day 2 – Search secrets and the best tricks to find documents online – Workshop with Henk van Ess

DIGGING FOR DOCS

Contra intuitive method to find off-beat documents by not concentrating on the question, but predicting the patterns is the possible answer. In three big blocks you learn all about digging for documents under time pressure.

1. Backgrounding on steroids
Find quickly the background story of an unknown person with the help of sophisticated filtering. 

* We look at mr Hill, pilot who caused a plane crash but survived. In just 20 minutes we find  his royal airforce ID, his unknown company, his postings in a forum, his old, deleted website and an actual new story: he was responsible for an earlier accident.
* Also we look how domain-filtering helped to find personal data of the new boss of Shell, Ben van Beurden.
* You learn why you have to search the same name 10 times in a different way
* how to avoid tunnel vision
* how to find stuff that you don’t know existed in the first place.
* The guy who Trump trusts: backgrounding the doctor who thinks you get autism from vaccination. 

2. From hunch to headline
How to make from a hunch a headline.This segment shows you why it is important to “follow the data” and explains what that means, how to implement the strategy that makes a hypothesis out of your hunch. 

* We look at an US youth band (Billboard listed) and check all the small leads to find out that they are exploited. * We also find damaging information of the aeronautic industry about the quality of cabin air.
* We find out how a dubious think tank is financed
* Who is behind dubious ticket sales agent Viagogo
* How to strategically research a company, i.e. Palantir 

3. Blast with the past
Let’s have a blast with the past. Smart use of archive.org and other answers to the problem “Page not found” and “Error 404”. Also: how to find unknown sources outside Google.

* Sexual abuse on a marine ship
* The scandal with the oil cleaning machine
* The fraud with the Thomas Jefferson wine
*  How to get inside older postings of LinkedIn groups
* How to find information that is not in Google

In 2019 we offer 2-day workshops for the first time. On the one hand for participants who want to deal with the topics intensively and on the other hand for attendees of our workshops in the past three years who want to update and deepen their knowledge.

Day 2 is also suitable for participants of earlier workshops with Henk (2015 und 2018). 

You will learn a new language that will open a whole new world of research possibilities. The workshop will be held in English, but Henk is fluent in German, so do not hesitate to come up with questions or examples in German.
