Maltego Video Tutorials

Hi guys,

We have seen a great number of Maltego videos coming out in the last few months and we have been really impressed with some of things you guys are doing. As such we have decided to create some of our own to help people better use and understand the tool!

We originally thought we could do this via the userguide section on our website - www.paterva.com/web5/documentation/userguide.php. However, we have still seen a number of users struggling with the basics (in videos, writeups as well as email) and we really want to get everyone past these stumbling blocks and onto the true power of Maltego.

We have had a whole week of making videos (which is a pain since one of us has to be in a video and the other one has to edit them all!). Thus we present to you under a shower of rainbows and unicorns our 3 latest Maltego videos. Each one of the videos deals with teaching some aspects of the tool and also gives an interesting sample case.

Sit back and enjoy the videos



  1. Mapping Google websites to find the odd-ones-out:

    In this video we show how to start Maltego, create a new graph, graph navigation, selecting nodes and running transforms. We also show how to use different views

  2. Quickly Identifying some of Sony's netblocks:

    In this video we show how to use sets of transforms, basic footprinting techniques, transform settings and using the detail view. We also discuss one of the transforms in more detail.

  3. Finding links between data stored in CSV files (airodump)

    In this video we show you how to import data from CSV and XLS files and create graphs directly from it. We've used data mined with Airodump in this tutorial.

Maltego 4 CE / Kali Linux release is ready for download!

Hi there,

We're happy to announce that Maltego 4 is now (finally) ready for the masses! We're releasing the community (free) edition today and the Kali distros have been updated by the kind people from Offensive Security (thanks Dookie/Muts!).  In other words - we're ready to roll on a major upgrade of your favorite information visualization tool.


(click on the image above to see our very grown-up/proper promotional video of Sandra the 15 year old Dachshund and Maltego/Kali Linux. !(We plan to screen this at our booth at a major conference.))

Our decision to make CaseFile free with the release of Maltego 4 had some interesting side-effects. In CaseFile importing data from CSV/XLS was enabled. So too printing. And reporting. So when we made CaseFile free it did not make sense to limit the Kali/CE releases - you'd simply open CaseFile, import the data and save the graph - then open in CE.

So - bottom line - reporting/printing/CSV import is now enabled in the free release…

Abracadabra! It's Sho(dan) time!

Shodan -- used by pentesters, stalkeˆWˆWˆWresearchers and data scientists everywhere to analyze information about computers on the Internet. From webcams to SCADA to looking at where various SSL information in certificates can tie organisations together. It is a common tool used by many different people. We really wanted to get some Maltego goodness on that!

TL;DR -- You can get the Shodan transforms in the transform hub right now. To use all of the different transform options (or you can stick with the free options) you can simply click on settings in the transform hub after installing to add your API key.

There have been transforms written for Shodan before, but we really felt like they needed refreshing. So we took it upon ourselves to look at the information provided by Shodan and decide how we could integrate it into the needs of Maltego users. We first started by looking at what information was readily and easily available and then if it was useful in an n-th order graph. This is…

Visualising the Bitcoin Blockchain in Maltego

This post will provide a quick overview of our new Maltego transforms for visualizing the Bitcoin blockchain. There are 11 new transforms in the seed which use Blockchain.info’s API to query data from the blockchain.

(Screenshot's in this post are taken with the Maltego 4 beta release.)
Before we begin, it is important to have an understanding of how Bitcoin and their transactions work so I will start with an overview of some of the main concepts:
Bitcoin Overview
Bitcoin address: Bitcoin addresses are transaction endpoints that are used to send Bitcoin to another person. A person can generate as many addresses as they want and people should (which they often don’t) use a new address for every transaction that is made. An address is represented with a 26-35 sequence of alphanumeric characters and looks like this: 1BvBMSEYstWetqTFn5Au4m4GFg7xJaNVN2. For a more in-depth explanation of Bitcoin addresses you can have a look at the Bitcoin Wiki here.
