This is a six-part series covering my experience modifying the instructions to build an Investigation VM from Open Source Intelligence Techniques by Michael Bazzell.
I made the VM to follow along with his online course that I bought last year but haven’t had time to work through. The course was originally built for the Buscador OS, but that distribution is no more.
Part 1: The Install
Installing Xubuntu as a VM
Part 2: Personalization
Configuring the VM to remove applications that leak data, and remove annoyances
Part 3: Configuring Firefox
Setting up Firefox for doing OSINT Investigations
Part 4: Configuring Chrome
Configuring Chrome for OSINT Investigations
Part 5: Setting up Linux Applications
Installing other applications to aid in capturing the information needed for OSINT investigations
Part 6: Finishing Setup
Final setups, and closing thoughts.
