Collecting and Exploiting Your "Private" Internet Data using OSINT

  • Micah Hoffman
  • Tuesday, January 17th, 6:00pm - 7:00pm

Have you ever wondered how an attacker gets access to the data you, your family and friends post to the Internet? What could they do with it? Could they find your spouse and family members from your profile information? What tools and techniques do they leverage in their Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) research on potential victims? If the answer is "Yes, yes I have!" then you need to come to this talk.

We will walk through how an attacker can leverage Burp Suite, Recon-ng and a variety of Internet resources to perform OSINT gathering on potential targets. We will use search engines to locate target homes, learn about the psychology behind why people share what they do, and learn some effective methods of protecting your private Internet data.
