OSINT is awesome. Open Source INTelligence is about searching the Internet for relevant information about something, analyzing the data that is collected and then taking some action using that intelligence.
Ninjas are awesome. Experts in their fields. Stealthy shadows searching for their targets. Patient, methodical wraiths exploiting their adversaries.
Now, put OSINT together with ninjas and you have, you have, well…you have a new Twitter account (https://twitter.com/osintninja) and a new chapter in this blog. Instead of just being about hiking and hacking, you will see posts about performing Internet searches on people and retrieving data from obscure and interesting sites.
Some readers may remember my “Running Away From Security” talk and blog post and how that was mainly about OSINT. Those were the foundations. Now we build.
