What a week it has been! Two days were filled with the more than awesome SANS OSINT summit, with incredible speakers that all delivered content of an extremely high quality. I am truly grateful that I was able to join, and I can't wait to rewatch some videos in the coming weeks, and practice some new techniques.

La situation est d’autant plus critique, souligne l’Organisation internationale pour les migrations (OIM), que l’île, forte de 5 000 habitants, ne peut a priori accueillir que 800 réfugiés. Dans un communiqué, United for Intercultural Action, une ONG de défense des droits des migrants et des réfugiés, rappelle de son côté que depuis 1993, 857 réfugiés au moins sont morts en tentant de rejoindre Lampedusa. Depuis le début de l’année, United a d’ores et déjà recensé 6 morts, et 31 disparus, un bilan qui risque fort de s’aggraver, si l’on en croit ce qui s’est passé le 11 février dernier :

Experts: Spy used AI-generated face to connect with targets

The 30-something redhead boasted a job at a top think tank and a who’s-who network of pundits and experts, from the centrist Brookings Institution to the right-wing Heritage Foundation. She was connected to a deputy assistant secretary of state, a senior aide to a senator and the economist Paul Winfree, who is being considered for a seat on the Federal Reserve. But Katie Jones doesn’t exist, The Associated Press has determined. Instead, the persona was part of a vast army of phantom profiles lurking on the professional networking site LinkedIn. And several experts contacted by the AP said Jones’ profile picture appeared to have been created by a computer program. How to recognize fake AI-generated images - Kyle McDonald - Medium. In 2014 machine learning researcher Ian Goodfellow introduced the idea of generative adversarial networks or GANs.

How to recognize fake AI-generated images - Kyle McDonald - Medium

“Generative” because they output things like images rather than predictions about input (like “hotdog or not”); “adversarial networks” because they use two neural networks competing with each other in a “cat-and-mouse game”, like a cashier and a counterfeiter: one trying to fool the other into thinking it can generate real examples, the other trying to distinguish real from fake. The first GAN images were easy for humans to identify. Consider these faces from 2014. But the latest examples of GAN-generated faces, published in October 2017, are more difficult to identify. Deepfake Bot Submissions to Federal Public Comment Websites Cannot Be Distinguished from Human Submissions. Abstract The federal comment period is an important way that federal agencies incorporate public input into policy decisions.

OSINT Resources. Welcome to my work in progress! The site is deliberately informal, built for the low-tech beginner, because that's where anyone needs to start. I'm also trying to keep this concept-based rather than providing a lengthy list of links - links get stale, and you don't need 50 ways to search your number. Once this site built out further, I plan to have more advanced pages (I'm working through Automate The Boring Stuff with Python!) , but for now, I develop pages as needed based on what I've studied on my own time recently, so some pages go into heavy detail on one topic, while others still need to be filled out.

The One OSINT Tool You Must Have to Supercharge Your Investigations. Everybody loves tools. It’s a basic instinct that probably kicked in around the moment the first caveman — or woman — realised that the jagged piece of flint they’d just stepped on would make skinning wildebeest much faster and more efficient. Fast-forward just a little, and the dawn of the smartphone era made “There’s an app for that” a universally understood phrase — and most of us now carry around in our pocket a collection of programs and gadgets that a generation ago would have filled a small room. Cameras, calendars, word processors, detailed interactive atlases and entire encyclopedias that are constantly updated.

It’s great, isn’t it? Forget about tools. Yes, forget about tools. Deepfake used to attack activist couple shows new disinformation frontier. Verification Handbook. The latest edition of the Verification Handbook arrives at a critical moment. Today’s information environment is more chaotic and easier to manipulate than ever before. This book equips journalists with the knowledge to investigate social media accounts, bots, private messaging apps, information operations, deep fakes, as well as other forms of disinformation and media manipulation. The first resource of its kind, it builds on the first edition of the Verification Handbook and the Verification Handbook for Investigative Reporting.

A Guide To Social Media Intelligence Gathering (SOCMINT) In my previous article, I introduced the term Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) and talk about how it might be used to support intelligence needs. OSINT refers to all the information that is publicly available, many estimates show that 90 percent of useful information acquired by intelligence services comes from public sources (in other words, OSINT sources). How to Find the Most Recent Satellite Imagery Anywhere on Earth. At Azavea, we help our clients use machine learning and satellite imagery to map places all over the world—we’ve trained AI to map everything from buildings, to bodies of water, to solar panels and crosswalks.

Creating an Effective Sock Puppet for OSINT Investigations – Introduction – Jake Creps.

Introduction and Philosophy In recent light of the epic failure by Surefire Intelligence to frame Robert Mueller for sexual assault allegations, I feel it’s important to discuss and unpack how to make a good sock puppet for OSINT operations. If you aren’t familiar, just google Jacob Wohl or Surefire Intelligence and you will likely be flooded with information about the scandal.

For further details on the unraveling of the socks Wohl made, check out Aric Toler’s threat on Twitter @arictoler from Bellingcat. Now, without further ado, let’s get started on constructing a sock puppet for OSINT investigations. To get started, I want to properly define what a sock puppet is and what it is not. The first thing you have to do is clearly define your intent. Google hacking.

Boolean basics: How to write a search query for newsgathering that works. When searching for newsworthy content online, you’ve got to know exactly what you’re looking for and have the skills to find it. This is where Boolean search queries help. These strings of words allow you to cut through the usual social media chatter by upgrading a default search to a multifaceted, specific search to find more precise snippets of information.

In this quick guide, we run through the basics of what you need to know to search social media for effective newsgathering. A quick note: platforms vary. Twitter, Reddit and Google currently support Boolean searches, while YouTube supports them to some extent on top of its advanced search function (a Boolean search on YouTube might not work when sorting by ‘relevance’, but will when sorted by upload date).

Comment (et pourquoi) Bernard Cazeneuve a décidé de ficher 60 millions de Français. Le gouvernement n’a que faire des avis de la Commission nationale de l’informatique et des libertés (Cnil) : en remontant la chronologie ayant entraîné le gouvernement à publier au Journal Officiel, ce dimanche 30 octobre au matin, en plein week-end de la Toussaint, un décret validant le fichage des identifiants biométriques de la quasi-totalité de la population française, on découvre que la planification de ce «fichier monstre» de 60 millions de Français avait été décidée et planifiée bien avant que la Cnil ne se soit prononcée à son sujet, dans le cadre d’une réforme visant à «simplifier la procédure pour les usagers et renforcer le degré de sécurité des titres délivrés», mais aussi et surtout à supprimer 1 300 équivalents temps plein travaillé (ETPT) dans l’administration préfectorale.
