Open source intelligence (OSINT) and web reconnaissance are rich topics for infosec professionals looking for the best ways to sift through the abundance of information widely available online. In many cases, the first stage of any security assessment—that is, reconnaissance—is not given enough attention by security professionals, hackers, and penetration testers. Often, the information openly present is as critical as the confidential data.

Hacking Web Intelligence shows you how to dig into the Web and uncover the information many don't even know exists. The book takes a holistic approach that is not only about using tools to find information online but also how to link all the information and transform it into presentable and actionable intelligence. You will also learn how to secure your information online to prevent it being discovered by these reconnaissance methods.

Hacking Web Intelligence is an in-depth technical reference covering the methods and techniques you need to unearth open source information from the Internet and utilize it for the purpose of targeted attack during a security assessment. This book will introduce you to many new and leading-edge reconnaissance, information gathering, and open source intelligence methods and techniques, including metadata extraction tools, advanced search engines, advanced browsers, power searching methods, online anonymity tools such as TOR and i2p, OSINT tools such as Maltego, Shodan, Creepy, SearchDiggity, Recon-ng, Social Network Analysis (SNA), Darkweb/Deepweb, data visualization, and much more.

Comments about oreilly Hacking Web Intelligence:

The writer, not the editor, is supposed to have a drinking problem - Rife with basic grammatical errors.

The first chapter would have been better as an appendix. The introduction should serve to construct an enthusiasm for the core content not as a description of basic terms, protocols and technology. I would completly rewrite it in the next version.

For god sake get a ghost writer and stick to what you know best - technology. You can't reach your audience if they are all asleezzzzzzz.
