What are the minimum technical requirements to run Maltego?

Modified on: Fri, 20 Nov, 2020 at 9:41 AM

The Maltego Desktop Client is quick and easy to install. And because it uses Java, it is able to run on Windows, Mac and Linux operating systems.


Hardware Requirements:

  • The Client requires at minimum of 4GB of RAM
  • Any modern multi-core processor (i3 or above) will have more than enough processing power
  • 4GB of disk space
  • A 1080p display
  • We highly recommend using a mouse. A mouse will make navigating Maltego graphs far easier 


Network Requirements:

  • The Client requires Internet Access for optimal operation
  • The Client will need to make outgoing connections on the following ports: 80, 443, 8081. Additionally port 5222 is needed in order to join shared graphs on Paterva's public Comms Server


Note: a Maltego Client may need to make connections on additional ports if the Client is using Transforms from 3rd party Transform vendors in the Transform Hub.
