Entity Description

A domain is the 'cnn.com' part of 'www.cnn.com'. It is the 'google.com' part of 'www.google.com'. A domain has to be registered by a person or an organisation. A domain is registered in a TLD (top level domain), and might have a SLD (sub level domain). Consider the web site 'www.abc.co.uk'. The top level domain (TLD) is 'uk'. The sub level domain is 'co.uk'. The domain itself is 'abc.co.uk'. A domain contains whois information - this information contains (at least) the details of who registered the domain.

Entity Description

An IP (Internet protocol) address is like the telephone number of a computer on the Internet. In IP version 4 (which is most common on the Internet today) this 'telephone' number is made up of 4 numbers, seperated by a dot. The numbers range from 0-255. An IP number thus could be 192.168.0.1 or 196.25.1.1. In order for a computer to speak to another machine over an IP network it has to know the IP number of the remote machine. Because people are better at remembering names than remembering numbers we have DNS. DNS is the whitepages of the Internet. It looks up (or resolves) the IP address for a DNS name. Thus the DNS name www.abc.co.uk resolves to the IP number 85.91.32.29. Just like domains IP addresses also needs to be registered. They are normally grouped in a block of IP addresses and blocks are assigned to organisations such as ISPs. The information of the organisation is contained in whois information of the IP block.

What is mildly interesting is that Maltego does not keep URL as the main value in this entity (because rendering a URL is just messy). Where possible the URL's truncated title is kept in the value. If the title is not available, the truncated URL is stored in the main value. The actual URL is kept in the (Actual URL) field. Additionally the full title is kept in the (Full Title) field.

Entity Description


(Uniform Resource Locator) http://www.abc.com/main.html is a URL. http://www.abc.co.uk/news.asp?id=1 is also a URL. Even ftp://ftp.abc.sub.co.za/ is a URL. In Maltego URLs are (usually) collected when executing search engine transforms on entities such as phrases, persons etc. The URLs are collected in the output entities (websites, email addresses etc).

DNS Name


Entity Description

DNS stands for Domain Name System. 'www.google.com' is a DNS name. 'mail.abc.com' is a DNS name. 'mx1.sub.abc.co.uk' is a DNS name. A DNS name becomes an entry in a domain's zone file. The zone file is just a file that contains a list of DNS Names per domain. There are several types of DNS names. The everyday DNS names (like 'www.abc.com') are called A (or CName) records. The MX (mail exchange) records contains information about where mail should be sent for email addresses at the domain (for example mail for anyone@abc.com should be sent to mx1.abc.com). The NS records (name server) shows which servers are name servers for this domain - in other words who keeps the zone files for the domain. Every DNS name is (or should be) connected to an IP address. In some cases the reverse is also true - an IP address can resolve to a DNS name. You should understand the relationship between Domain, DNS Name and IP number as this system is one of the main building blocks of Internet.
