Episode 6 - Exploring the Intersection of OSINT and Red Teaming with Rey Bango
Joe and Ray discuss how OSINT is used in offensive security scenarios, focusing on the importance of doing in-depth research. In order to properly use OSINT, Ray explains that it is essential to identify and map out the risks associated with an organization, as well as to do research to understand the company's structure, assets, and resources. He emphasizes that it is important to look at where the information lies, in order to get an idea of who the key people are within an organization. This could include looking for patterns in social media accounts, websites, and other sources to uncover insight on those individuals. Ray also advises that when doing the legwork, it is important to not only look at public sources, but to dig deeper. By using OSINT, companies can better understand their adversaries and develop a more effective security strategy. He further explains that it is important to constantly monitor the situation, as adversaries often change their tactics or target different areas. With the right tools and strategies in place, organizations can stay one step ahead of potential threats and be better prepared to respond.  Links Discussed:   Dehashed: https://www.dehashed.com   HaveIBeenPwned: https://www.haveibeenpwned.com   SecurityTrails: https://www.securitytrails.com   View DNS: https://www.viewdns.info   DNS Dumpster: https://www.dnsdumpster.com   Snapchat Map: https://map.snapchat.com   Trace Labs Kali: https://www.tracelabs.org/initiatives/osint-vm   Raspberry Pis: https://www.raspberrypi.com/   Free Digital Ocean Credit: https://m.do.co/c/ab5f75969c8a   Phone Infoga: https://github.com/sundowndev/phoneinfoga   CSI Linux: https://csilinux.com/   Flare VM: https://github.com/mandiant/flare-vm   Parrot OS: https://www.parrotsec.org/   Kali Linux: https://www.kali.org/  Axiom: https://github.com/pry0cc/axiom   SANS SIFT: https://www.sans.org/tools/sift-workstation/   Volatility Framework: https://www.volatilityfoundation.org/   Shodan: https://www.shodan.io   Michael Bazzell's Extreme Privacy: https://inteltechniques.com/book7.html   Michael Bazzell's Website: https://inteltechniques.com/   Joe's Podcast with Michael Bazzell: https://osint.mobi/michael-bazzell-podcast   Joe's Podcast with Justin Seitz: https://osint.mobi/justin-seitz-podcast   Justin Seitz's Hunchly: https://www.hunchly.com   Justin Seitz's Python for OSINT Training: https://www.automatingosint.com   Imagga: https://imagga.com/   Infoga: https://github.com/The404Hacking/Infoga   Joe's Podcast with Joe Vest: https://osint.mobi/red-team-podcast   Contacting Rey:   Twitter: https://twitter.com/reybango   The OSINTion Links:   https://linktr.ee/TheOSINTion   Twitch: https://twitch.tv/theosintion   YouTube: https://osint.mobi/youtube  The OSINTion Training:  On-Demand: https://academy.theosintion.com   Live Training: https://www.theosintion.com/courses  --- Send in a voice message: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/the-osintion/message Support this podcast: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/the-osintion/support
