I’m a big fan of BSides London, it was the first security conference I ever went to, and this will be my fourth year attending. The last couple of years I’ve been a “crew” member for the event, working in the background to help make the event what we all know and love. Last year I stepped in last-minute to run a Scapy workshop, this year I’ve decided to submit one, on my other favourite thing Maltego.
Below you will find a brief description of the workshop and the things that if you are planning on attending you will need to bring with you.
Maltego Magic – Creating transforms & other stuff
In this workshop I will teach people how to write their own Maltego transforms. Using simple to understand examples (and pictures, everyone likes pictures) I will lead the participants through the process of creating local and remote transforms using just a pen and paper (ok a laptop is needed as well).
A basic knowledge of Maltego & Python is needed but the workshop will be aimed so that anyone can benefit from the magic that is Maltego even if they haven’t coded anything before.
Requirements for the day
- Laptop (Mac OSX, Windows or Linux)
- Python installation (2.7 or above, not version 3 though)
- The Python Requests library (sudo pip install requests)
- Maltego (CE edition is ok)
- A text editor that’s Python friendly or a Python IDE (Sublime Text, PyCharm etc)
- Your imagination (borrow someone else’s if necessary)
The workshop information for the day is below:

If you are interesting in writing Maltego transforms come along to the workshop, if you can’t make it I will be wandering around the con all day so feel free to stop me and we can have a chat about Maltego Magic.
