Adventures in OSINT
How it all began. Its an interesting story.
A long time ago in a bar far, far away…
A policeman and a hacker walk into a bar. Well the joke can go a variety of ways from here. Luckily it was no joke, and since your on this site and still reading you can surmise the two found common ground. The policeman was not much of a hacker but was willing to learn, and the hacker was not a fan of rules or government regulations you know “the law”. They both had been at a conference lets just called “A K0n” and both liked trivia contests and showing off how smart they were (back then Buzz-time had two meanings). Well a few rounds later (games and drinks) and a few laughs later they had an idea how to work together. Nothing official just sharing ideas.
A seed is planted
From there a seed was planted. Today NobleNerds have evolved into a community of a mix of Investigators, Detectives, Analysts, Prosecutors, IT Professionals, Pentesters, and Hackers (White, Grey, and Black semi reformed) to name a few. All utilizing their unique skills to further actual investigations. Other organizations have formed organically with similar well intentions. Tip of the hat to Trace Labs.org .
