What is OSINT?
Every year the number of Internet users is growing. By the beginning of October 2020, 4.9 billion people, which is 63.2% of the world's inhabitants, use the Internet.
And the size of data on the Internet reached 2.7 Zettabytes (1 ZB ~ 1012GB).
And every year, the number of users and devices connected to the network increases by 6% and 10%, respectively. Most of this information is publicly available. Sources that refer to these data or to data from newspapers, magazines, radio and television broadcasts, public government reports, or leaks of information from various sources published to the general public are called open sources. Searching for information from such sources, selecting and collecting, and further analysis is an intelligence discipline called «Open-Source Intelligence» (OSINT).
From 2009 to 2016, the ongoing development of social networks and their increasing influence on our lives, as well as the emergence of the Internet of things, caused a rapid growth in the amount of information. And finally, the last period of 2016-2019, when OSINT begins to be actively used by businesses, political campaigns, investigators, law enforcement agencies, investors and security services in their activities.
According to CIA analyst Sherman Kent in 1947, politicians obtain from open sources up to 80 percent of the information they need to make decisions in peacetime. Later, Lieutenant General Samuel Wilson, who was the head of the US Department of Defense Intelligence Agency in 1976-1977, noted that "90 percent of intelligence comes from open sources and only 10 comes from the work of agents"
