TraceLabs OSINT VM

TraceLabs maintains an OSINT-oriented virtual machine built on top of Kali Linux that anyone can download.

The Trace Labs team has set out to create a specialized OSINT VM specifically to bring together the most effective OSINT tools and customized scripts we saw being used during our Search Party CTF’s. Inspired by the infamous Buscador VM, the Trace Labs OSINT VM was built in a similar way, to enable OSINT investigators participating in the Trace Labs Search Party CTF’s a quick way to get started and have access to the most popular OSINT tools and scripts all neatly packaged under one roof.

They maintain a GitHub repository for the VM that outlines the changes they’ve made to the Kali Linux distro, and provide instructions on creating their build from within a fresh Kali install if you don’t want to download their VM image.
