This episode, we dive into the wonderful and wacky world of open source intelligence (OSINT) and ask the question – “What can people find out about me online?”.
OSINT is what private investigators, intelligence agents, corporate researches and even 15 year-old ‘doxxers’ use to find information on a ‘target,’ and there’s a vast array of free tools to help them in their endeavours. We cover a number of those tools, from investigation frameworks to automated searching scripts, and then conduct a few ‘live’ searches to show just how effective they are.
Once we discover just how easy it is to find information about people online, we discuss a number of ways which you can ‘hide’ yourself and chat generally about what OSINT means for us as internet citizens.
We also dig into a number of topical issues, including the recent arrest of Wikileaks founder Julian Assange and the defamation letters issued by Craig Wright against a number of prominent Bitcoin personalities. To top it off, we discuss the state of gaming on Linux, a cool experiment conducted on the Lightning Network and a ‘blockchain fridge’.
Yes, you read that right – a fridge apparently powered by blockchain. It should go great with our VR Microwave and AI coffee machine! 🤷♂️
