New OSINT Tools & Resources - a Blended Online Training for Law Enforcement

Three modules that cover new OSINT tools and resources available to the Internet Investigations and Intelligence Law Enforcement practitioner.

The Blended Online OSINT (III) Training (BOOT) is an 'open' course but restricted to employees of public authorities worldwide.

This online course covers Breach and Leak data, Command Line processing and several advanced OSINT applications including Maltego, Skopenow, Censys and Shodan.

Course Code Class: BOOT-U-T

CPD Credits: 15 Hours


The New Tools and Resources course introduces, explains and demonstrates, live and online, the many other resources that make up the complete attack surface available to the Internet Intelligence & Investigations Law Enforcement practitioner. These tools and resources have provided a significant advance in the capability of OSINT Investigations.

The objectives of this course are to provide Law Enforcement practitioners with the capability to lawfully deploy a search of Breach and leaked data and have the capability to process investigations from the command line.

Also, several advanced investigation applications are introduced. Many of these online applications provide free trial accounts. This course provides an understanding of the capabilities of the various advanced online intelligence applications so that law enforcement officers can make informed decisions regarding any trial and later procurement.

Each module in this course has its own training objectives.


The Internet Intelligence & Investigations law enforcement practitioner will have the capability to process the extensive OSINT attack surface provided by the new tools and resources.

The I3 practitioner will have learned that processes which are considered technically complex and outside of the capability of most internet intelligence practitioners, are in fact easy to process, and they will possess much of that processing capability, regardless of the technical resources made available to them.

Each module has its own learning outcomes.

A BOOT is open to anyone anywhere with a online investigation remit. 

The online training, is a blend of portable document files (PDF) containing OSINT training material. The PDF for a module is module delivered to each trainee by e-mail one week before the LOT commences.

For each module, the trainee should allow for 1 to 2 hours of study time, to read the material and perform the exercises, preferably before the Classroom Training for that module.

The time for this activity is included in the CPD. So that of the 15 CPD hours for this course, 5 hours is study time, 9 hours is live training and 1 hour is tests & exam.

The reality is that many delegates read the PDFs in preparation for a Final Exam.  That is prudent as the subject matter of many exam questions is covered in the PDFs.
However, to get the most out of the classroom training, where tools, techniques and resources are all demonstrated live and online, it is best to read the PDFs before the live training.

Live Online Training (LOT) events are delivered on Wednesdays.

The typical duration of a LOT is 160 minutes, though the duration can range from 120 to 180 minutes for some modules

Each Live Online Training will commence with a Q&A session; so delegates can ask any questions concerning the current module.
After that, the trainer will cover the salient points of the module in some detail.
Processing modules are packed with real-time live demonstrations.
The trainer might set a short quiz to see how you are doing.

The intention is that, by the end of each Live Online Training, every delegate shall have the capability to perform the OSINT research relevant to the current module.

The Live Online Training is delivered through two platforms, concurrently. They are the privacy aware BraveTalk and Zoom.

With BraveTalk, we provide one URL to connect and the same URL works for all modules on the course.
It is not necessary to download and install the Brave browser. You can connect with any browser, though Brave is a Chromium Browser and so BraveTalk does work better on another Chromium browser.
Learn all about browsers in module 3.

Zoom is not not privacy conscious. Even though Axeten has a premium account, Zoom will try to collect data about people connecting to the LOT.
So why do we use it? Because its popular and people rely on it.

Each LOT can be accessed from your office, from the delegate's home or even from a mobile device.

However, to fully participate and to process any tasks set by the trainer, during the Live Online Training, it's always more productive to use a desktop computer with two displays.
With one display, you can observe the training and on the other display, you can process any tasks set by the trainer.

At the end of each weekly Live Online Training, any client might request that each of their delegates should take a short online test.

The tests are not mandatory, but it is recommended that all delegates take the tests.

The weekly tests allow each trainee to assess their progress and to become familiar with the process, which is the same in the Final Exam.

At the end of the Training, there is an option for each trainee to take final exam and receive a certificate
The final exam is online. Time can be taken to study the printed material before taking the exam.
Each delegate can select their exam date, up to 30 days after the end of the training.
The exam has about 15 multiple choice questions.
Time allowed: 40 minutes.
The candidate will require access to the internet to process live investigations.
Where the 70% pass mark is achieved, CPD credits are awarded.
Otherwise, a Certificate of Attendance is issued with no CPD credits.

Each Live Online Training is recorded.
Delegates that are not able to attend a Live Online Training can request access to the recording.
There is no additional fee for the recording service.


Twice a year, Axeten conducts a complete review of all of the training material.
Also, there are reviews for both the Refresher & Updates courses.
Any significant update located during any review is applied to the training material.
All review and update activity is recorded and signed off by a director.

There are two types of deferral.

1. An organisation may purchase multiple seats in one purchase order, but defer the use of those seats until a later course.

2. A practitioner that starts a course, may for any reason, suspend their participation in the course and defer to a later course.
On the later course, the practitioner can pick-up from where they left off, or start the whole course again.
