Maltego Download - Data Mining & Information Gathering Tool


The tool is used in online investigations for finding relationships between pieces of information from various sources located on the Internet. It uses the idea of transforms to automate the process of querying different data sources. This information is then displayed on a node-based graph suited for performing link analysis.

What does Maltego do?

The focus of Maltego is analyzing real-world relationships between information that is publically accessible on the Internet. This includes footprinting Internet infrastructure as well as gathering information about the people and organisation who own it.

  • People.
    • Names.
    • Email addresses.
    • Aliases.
  • Groups of people (social networks).
  • Companies.
  • Organizations.
  • Web sites.
  • Internet infrastructure such as:
    • Domains.
    • DNS names.
    • Netblocks.
    • IP addresses.
  • Affiliations.
  • Documents and files.

Connections between these pieces of information are found using open source intelligence (OSINT) techniques by querying sources such as DNS records, whois records, search engines, social networks, various online APIs and extracting metadata.

It provides results in a wide range of graphical layouts that allow for clustering of information which makes seeing relationships instant and accurate – this makes it possible to see hidden connections even if they are three or four degrees of separation apart.

    This creators of this program look to have made a program that fits in to current concerns that certain individuals have as to the structure and social connections of others. It leaves one seeing the possibility of most people on the planet being placed into a large computational web, showing the various connections and differing levels of social status between them. People’s presence on the internet provides a lot of information, and Maltego is making some use of this.
