phonenumber.lastnumbers+stringLast Digits


Entity Description

Phone number notation is really hard to define as everyone has their own way of using it. In Maltego phone numbers are broken up into 4 different parts. These are:

  • Country code
  • City code
  • Area code
  • Rest (last 4 digits)

Parsing of numbers happens in reverse - the last 4 digits of a number is first chopped from the end. The next 3 digits are used for area code, another 3 for city and the remainder is used for the country code. If the number you are using as input does not fit this format don't panic - the transforms re-arrange the numbers in various forms when searching for it.
As with a person entity, this entity has additional fields that allows for more focussed searhcing - see properties.
When the last 4 digits are ommited in the search Maltego will use these are wildcards - this is useful for obvious reasons...

Phrase

Short DescriptionAny text or part thereof
Entity CategoryPersonal
Base Entitymaltego.Unknown


Entity Properties

Property NameTypeDisplay name
textstringText


Entity Description

A phrase in Maltego is the most powerful entity (when used with search engine transforms). This is because absolute no modifications are made to the value of the phrase when it is passed to the query. This was done to ensure that power users can add any search engine operator to it. Thus, having phrase of secret format:pdf site:mil will result in a list of all PDF files with the word secret found on websites with a domain that ends in .mil. Also keep in mind that the use of quotes (") makes a huge difference to search results. A search for top secret is vastly different to a search for "top secret". 


Person


Entity Meta

Display NamePerson
Entity Namemaltego.Person
Short DescriptionEntity representing a human
Entity CategoryPersonal
Base Entitymaltego.Unknown


Entity Properties

Property NameTypeDisplay name
person.fullname*stringFull Name
person.firstname+stringFirst Names
person.lastname+stringSurname


Entity Description

A person in Maltego has a firstname and a surname. Previous versions supported middle names, but in the end it was determined that this just confusing for users (firstname was seperated from lastname with a comma ,). In this version the name will be everything before the first space. Entering a name such a Jacobus Hendrik van Wyk will thus identify the firstname as Jacobus and the last name as Hendrik van Wyk. While this may appear to be a problem it does not make a huge difference in the performance of most transforms.

Entity Properties

Entity Description

An alias entity represents a username or screen name for a particular online social account. Aliases are generally unique per social network making them a great starting point for searching for a person's social accounts. Aliases are also useful for privoting between a person's different social accounts as it is common for people to use the same alias across multiple social networks.
