Intelligence professionals that 'task network', determine and eliminate 'valued' targets by integrating OSINT and HACKING with HUMINT and TECHINT into a 'Cloudular Network'.
Not linear but cloudular, which means one asset will lead to others quickly and efficiently as we pull the various threads of information allowing clients to move in many directions at the same time or follow one specific aspect if required.
Five level ultrascans are used for the intelligence gathering phase of all security related work and to determine the relationships and real world links
People, Groups of people (social networks)
Web sites, Internet infrastructure such as: Domains, DNS names, Netblocks, IP addresses, Email
Phone, Phrases, Affiliations, Documents and files
But also hidden or confidential information can be revealed;
Family ties, Health status;
Financial networks, Foreign sales, Financial resources;
Media sources, Disgruntled employees, Imminent threats, Homeland plots, Trade craft, Recruiting tactics.
A general first wide search for the entities as given by client, the outcome differs a lot depending on how common the names of entities are.
If the entity is named "john smith" the outcome will be a lot of information containing "john smith" - "john" and "smith"
When the entity is firstname.lastname@example.org the outcome will be information containing or connected to email@example.com
With a combination of entities, for example firstname.lastname@example.org, XYZ company, London, Cairo, Washington, phone and green energy, the outcome will be information containing or connected to all entities and links between the entities.
The outcome of the first level scan will value the new found entities in relation to the given one, depending on the value new entities can be scanned for deeper connections to determine relationships with the original given entity.
For example, documents with co-signatures, university records, photographs with location and time stamp, logins and passwords of (email) accounts, additional (email) addresses, company websites, twitter accounts, can link to new entities that have connections with the given entities. Even though some entities are removed of the internet or data set, traces can still lead to new entities (evidence).
