OSINT includes all publicly accessible sources of information that can be found online or offline, including but not limited to:

1.Internet, including online publications, blogs, social media websites.

2.Traditional mass media, including television, radio, newspapers, books, magazines, professional journals, academic publications, dissertations, company news, employee profiles, resumes and geospatial information in maps and commercial imagery.

3.Dark web resources.

The process of OSINT is planning, data mining, analysis, dissemination and to generate visual information sorting reports.
