Hello my fellow hackers !!!! how are you i hope that you are doing great hacking and learning new stuff. This article is about How to Use Maltego to Do Network Reconnaissance.
When ever we want to hack any target, the first and for most step is to gather as much information as we can about the target. Other wise you will be wasting your time, effort and most importantly your freedom :D. In my previous articles i have talked about Sublist3r, DNSenum and Dmitry both are some really powerful and useful for information gathering.
In this tutorial, we will be using a tool called Maltego, developed by Paterva, that can do many of these tasks with one simple scan. Kali Linux come pre-installed with the community edition of Maltego.
How to use Maltego against a Target :-
This tool gathers all information available about the target over the internet like emails, DNS records and many other. It can be used to gather information about individual or either network we will be covering network and infrastructure in this post and will cover Individual person information in coming article.
We will be looking at gathering info on all the subdomains, the IP address, the WHOIS info, all of the email addresses and other details.
Register Maltego :-
So the first step is to start your Kali Linux Virtual Machine or physical machine is you are running it natively. In my case i am running in in Virtual Box. You can check my article about setting up Kali in Virtual Box here. First time you will run it you will have to create an account and login to Maltego Community site for it to download the required files.
