What will you be doing?
Most individuals and organizations are not aware of the information that can be found about them on public internet sites.
Various tools are available for collecting intelligence from online sources, e.g. Shodan focusing on process control and Internet-
of-Things devices, or Maltego for gathering and visualizing information on a specific target domain or user.
In this assignment you research what information may be obtained using these tools and your own methods for finding, parsing and correlating data sources, and applying big data solutions such as ElasticSearch.
Your results will help create awareness with internet users about the, possibly sensitive, information that lingers out in the open.
What do we require of you?
However, most important is your motivation to work in the cyber security field.
What can you expect of your work situation?
