Cover: Conducting Surface Web-Based Research with Maltego Carbon(TM)
This e-book provides an overview of how to use Maltego Carbon(TM) as an academic research tool for extracting information from the Surface Web. (The current version is now Maltego Chlorine 3.6.0.)
This resource was created to support the work of researchers at Kansas State University; however, any who are interested are welcome to use the resource. This work is an unofficial one. The author has no relationship with Paterva, the makers of Maltego Chlorine (formerly Maltego Radium, released in September 2012; Maltego Tungsten, released in August 2013; Carbon, released in April 2014, and Chlorine, released in March 2015).
(Note: Some of the initial visuals were captured in Maltego Tungsten before the update to Maltego Carbon. Maltego Tungsten is v. 3.4.0, and Carbon is 3.5.0. A majority of information captures were done with Maltego Carbon 3.5.3. The current version is Maltego Chlorine 3.6.0.)
