I’ve always been a fan of Lifehacker’s How I Work series, while this isn’t for Lifehacker, this is my “How I do Open Source Intelligence”. Recently a friend called and asked how I tracked data when doing OSINT. These are the tools and processes I use. It’s the what works for me, and your mileage may vary.
The tools I use are a legal pad, a computer, a web browser, a personal wiki, a data analysis tool and depending on the work Tails and a SD card.
