FAQ

What is a SocialLinks transforms?

We provide an access to the set of 500+ transforms, available in Maltego (see paterva.com for details). Each transform returns information about input entity (email address, phone number, person or company name, IP-address, domain, social network profile, alias or username, image, location, GPS coordinates, keyword or phrase etc). The result of transforms represented as a graph of linked entities and can be used for continuous research.

Please, take a look at our gallery/video section for examples.

What sources of information do you use?

We use a very wide list of sources, which is constantly updated. It can be separated into two major parts: online and offline. The 95% of transforms use online (i.e. you get information in real-time) sources: the data from social networks, companies registers, various APIs, services and search engines.

The rest of the transforms use SocialLinks database (SL DB, more details) which contains more than 7 billion records about people, companies, and their connections. Although only 5% of transforms use this source, the amount of useful data is very high. In SL DB there is an information on 50+ countries. It also includes very good datasets about the USA...

How can I use your transforms in Maltego CE (Free Community Edition)?

We prepared a special set of transforms for Maltego CE. This set is available in Maltego Transform Hub and totally free. However, the full list of SocialLinks transforms available only in Maltego Classic or XL. The main reason is that there is no sense to get 12 results per transform when there are a 1000 results.
