Internet threat intelligence and investigation

The Internet can be a great place to hide. There are over 300 million domain names, over 4 billion IP addresses and many more nameservers, hostnames and email addresses within the infrastructure of DNS. Criminals make use of all of these resources to attack their targets, moving often and hiding in plain sight behind Whois privacy and shared hosting environments.

Within this context, threat intelligence analysts and incident response professionals must make critical decisions about proper defenses or countermoves. They need reliable information quickly, and must arm themselves with the best tools and data in order to expose threat infrastructure and defeat criminal networks.
