More details about Maltego CaseFile and Maltego 3.1

So far we've had very positive feedback on [Maltego CaseFile]. We've had the same questions from various people and I've decided to put the answers here on the blog:

Q: Will CaseFile be available for OSX and Linux?
A: Yes. We will have an OSX version very soon - hopefully within this week. Like the Win version, it's still beta. If there is enough interest in a Linux version (beta) we'll put one together.

Q: When is the official release of CaseFile?
A: Hopefully early in 2012.

Q: Will Maltego 3.1 have the same features as CaseFile?
A: Yes, and if you have a license you get a free upgrade from 3.0.4 to 3.1. Out of the box Maltego 3.1 will not come with all the CaseFile entities, but you will be able to export them from CF to 3.1 as you need them. You will be able to open CF graphs in 3.1 and use transforms on CF entities as always.

Q: What do you mean CaseFile will be"almost free"?
A: We will sell CaseFile for around $200 per copy - perhaps in batches of 5. If you are a corporation or an organization that use CaseFile for commercial reasons you should buy licenses. If not - you are welcome to use the community edition free of charge. The only difference will be the background. We believe people will do the right thing and support us.

Q: Will there be a Maltego 3.1 community edition?
A: Yes - we normally release community editions a few weeks after the commercial edition.

We are also working on Maltego 4.0 - people that saw the 44Con talk in London would know what it's all about. 4.0 will change the way you think about information forever...

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.
