Open Source Intelligence- What I learned by being an OSINT creeper - Josh Huff Derbycon 2016 (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Open Source Intelligence- What I learned by being an OSINT creeper
Josh Huff
Derbycon 2016

Open Source Intelligence or OSINT is an incredible tool when it comes to reconnaissance. Its uses come in many varieties and the information obtained can be nothing short of scary if you know how to do it right. This talk covers defining OSINT, OSINT exercises, current tools, lessons learned in studying OSINT(which apply to many other security disciplines), some leaders in OSINT research and how studying OSINT helped me break into the information security job industry.

Last year I was an Infosec enthusiast on the outside looking in and Derbycon was my first security conference. I was fascinated by talks on Open Source Intelligence so I studied up and practiced. Today I'm a Digital Forensics Analyst for a private investigation firm. Even though I don't use OSINT every day in my job, the OSINT discipline comes in handy on a daily basis.
