In this recipe, we'll begin with the use of a special Kali edition of Maltego, which will aid us in the information gathering phase by representing the information obtained in an easy to understand format. Maltego is an open source threat assessment tool that is designed to demonstrate the complexity and severity of a single point of failure on a network. It has the ability to aggregate information from both internal and external sources to provide a clear threat picture.
