1.0 About

12/10/2013 - Currently integrating to new version of recon-ng, have to change all path locations to reference workspaces. Be patient.

recon-ng-maltego is a local maltego transform pack built with the Canari Framework that integrates recon-ng data into maltego graphs. It also enables you to launch module categories such as hosts, contacts, and pushpin modules directly from Maltego and query the results to create a graph.

Directory Structure:

  • src/recon-ng-maltego directory is where all the magic stuff goes and happens.
  • src/recon-ng-maltego/transforms directory is where all the transform modules are located.
  • src/recon-ng-maltego/transforms/common directory is where common code for all transforms are stored.
  • src/recon-ng-maltego/transforms/common/ is where custom entities are defined.
  • maltego/ is where the Maltego entity exports are stored.
  • src/recon-ng-maltego/resources/maltego directory is where the entities.mtz and *.machine files are stored for auto install and uninstall.
