Welcome to

In an effort to maintain the links and resources I recommend to people when called on for assistance, and when teaching, I have created this compendium / blog site which will house links and resources related to the OSINT / Privacy / Virtual Currency and DFIR fields. Additionally this is my poorly maintained / haphazardly updated "professional" blog where any content will be posted that relates to the field. I have made it a goal to research and post more, however, work and the associated travel tends to get in the way of my hobbies from time to time. I'm not complaining, I'm just saying...

Ultimately, in the classes we teach, we cannot make you an expert in the subject in a few short days and hours. Between the time allotted for classes, and the deep / wide nature of the subject matter; we often times find that we are asking students to drink through a full blast. It is my hope that this site will be a resource you can use well into the future as it is updated regularly, and is easy to come back to. It should be noted, there are several (hundreds?) of these types of sites out there, this is simply my take on the theme. Many of those types of sites are listed here as well.

At the end of the day, we all know in this field that no one person knows everything, and we all need a little help from our friends from time to time. If I can provide a little assistance in your research or one of these resources helps when you're in a tough spot, it's all worth it, and I am glad to help.

I maintain a github repository at:

You can follow me on twitter where I post shenanigans / retweet articles of interest under the handle: @Adv4n6. Additionally I can be found on Facebook and Instagram under the same name. These accounts are *mostly* professional in nature...I se them to create current content about the fields and to document some of my travels.
