Pipl

Modified on: Fri, 20 Nov, 2020 at 9:47 AM

Overview

With the Pipl Transforms in Maltego, investigators can now streamline their person of interest investigations, vastly reducing the time spent gathering information. Pipl continuously scours the web, social media, and exclusive sources to collect identity elements, as well as other physical and digital data. International data sources add global context for investigators. Pipl’s powerful algorithm performs sophisticated data analysis to deliver an index of more than 3 billion online identities - including names, aliases, addresses, emails, age, work history, relationships, phone numbers and social network details among many other valuable data points.


Getting Started

To get started, first find the Pipl Hub item in the Transform Hub then click “Install”. If you are using the Pipl Connector, you will be asked to provide your Pipl API Key. Enter it and click OK to finish the installation. If you purchased a Data Bundle you will not be prompted for an API key (but may optionally supply one via the “Details” window once you have installed the Hub item).



The basic flow of investigation with Maltego’s Pipl Transform is as follows:

  • Start with an identifier: Name (Person or Phrase Entity), E-Mail Address, Phone Number, Address (Location Entity)
  • Query Pipl using the “Search Person [Pipl]” Transform
  • You may receive zero, one, or many result Entities in response
  • Zero Entities mean no results were found
  • One or more Entities with a yellow visual indicator means that a matches were found but they are approximate matches, so called Possible Persons. To get full details (i.e. a Pipl Person Entity), the “Resolve search pointer [Pipl]” Transform must be called (this triggers an additional Pipl API call).
  • One Entity with a green visual indicator means that an exact match was found, and full details are already enriched.


From a Pipl Person, a number of Transforms are available for showing the full set of information that Pipl has available for that particular person. The easiest way to show this information is the “Expand in Full [Pipl]” Transform. Many of the different results of the “Expand in Full [Pipl]” Transform can be further expanded to view source information (often including source URLs for the information), or used as pivots in other Transforms (within Pipl, but also many of the other Maltego integrations).


Below is an illustration of “Possible Person” matches (left) and full Pipl Person match (right). A Possible Person can be resolved into a full match using the “Resolve search pointer [Pipl]” Transform.



It is possible to run most Transforms off of Possible Person matches, but the resulting information will be less accurate and incomplete when compared to a full Pipl Person match. Moreover, some extra information such as email addresses and source URLs is only available for full matches.


Example: Expanding all details and viewing source of information



The sequence above shows a typical flow of a simple POI investigation using Pipl in Maltego. A number of additional Transforms are available for querying data selectively, and further expanding data points into source information, tags, URLs and other metadata. Detailed reference documentation for these Transforms is provided below. For any further questions, contact support@maltego.com.


Billing Information

Pipl charges you only if a search returned a positive match. A match can be a person or a list of possible persons. Therefore, the following list of Transforms may likely cause usage charges on your Pipl API key:

All of the Search Person [Pipl] Transforms:

  • pipl.PersonToPiplPerson
  • pipl.phoneNumberToPerson
  • pipl.emailAddressToPiplPerson
  • pipl.addressToPiplPerson
  • pipl.aliasToPiplPerson
  • Resolve search pointer [Pipl] Transform (pipl.resolveSearchPointer)


To keep costs low and to effectively use Pipl’s search you can specify search constraints while running the above Transforms. The more search constraints you supply, more accurate the returned results are.  Moreover, you will not be charged if no results were returned.


If you are searching by a Person or Alias input Entity, for example John Doe using the Search Person Transform will bring numerous results, but specifying the City, State and/or Country search constraints would narrow down the search significantly.


Specify search conditions using Transform Inputs


If you are searching by an address using a Location as input Entity, you can specify FullName containing the first name and last name, Phone Number, Email, and/or Username as search constraints.


Credit Consumption for Data Bundles

This only applies if you bought Pipl Data Bundles. Please ignore if you have the Pipl Connector or are using your own Pipl API key.


If you purchased a Pipl Data Bundle via Maltego (or are on a data trial), you do not require an API key to use Pipl, but will instead be limited by the number of Transforms you run that require the Pipl API. Importantly, this means that not every Transform you run consumes a credit from your data bundle! Only those Transforms that call the Pipl API (and would therefore otherwise require an API key) consume a credit. These include:

  • Search Person [Pipl] Transforms (search by name, email, alias, address, phone number)
  • The Resolve search pointer [Pipl] Transform


All other Transforms (Expand details, explore source origin, etc.) are free and can be run as many times as you wish without consuming credits from your bundle.


If you are unsure whether a Transform consumes a credit, find it in the reference documentation below and check whether it takes the “piplAPIKey” Transform Setting. If it does, it will consume a credit, otherwise it will not: https://docs.pipl.com/docs/faq#section-how-do-you-bill-for-api-usage

Description

A Search Person [Pipl] Transform might return with either a Pipl Person Entity or multiple Pipl Possible Person Entities. Pipl Possible Person Entities appear with an orange dot overlay. Results are sorted by the Match score — a value between 0 and 1—representing the confidence level that each person is the person of interest in an investigation. 

Each possible person includes summary data and a search pointer—similar to a bookmark—for follow-up searches to expand the person with more detail.


This Transform is used to retrieve a exact match of the possible person using a search pointer lookup.
