Span alternate regions, languages and network protocols. Silo for Research spins up one-time-use browser instances that give you access to content across geographies and web protocols. Regardless of the destination resource, your identity or affiliation is never exposed.
Being anonymous is one thing, but actively managing how you appear online when conducting sensitive research is quite another. Silo for Research lets you match your persona to the specific investigation needs. Appear local to the subject material by accessing the internet through Berlin, Mexico City, Singapore or any of Authentic8's access points around the world. Websites may present themselves differently based on your device settings; with Silo, you spoof whatever the most popular configuration may be for the region — even if it’s a mobile platform in a different language. Silo for Research combined with good tradecraft ensures your research activities aren't attributed to your analysts or organization.
Silo for Research supports collections of all types of web content as the analyst needs it, or over a period of time. Automation tools allow you to set up regular collection routines to capture a range of web content types, transform the content to a format of your choice and securely store it in the cloud.
Analysts often revisit the same sources to keep current with changing target data. While these repetitive collections are vital, it's inefficient to use valuable analyst time on repetitive or rote tasks. The Collector add-on for Silo for Research allows analysts to schedule and automate collections across any region or protocol supported by the configuration. And good research means expanding search operations across multiple websites covering different data sources or content formats. For this technique, the Gofer add-on allows analysts to configure and execute multi-search workflows seamlessly. It includes a set of pre-configured websites and workflows that can be customized and enhanced to fit any type of search. Read more about these capabilities in the Collector and Gofer data sheets.
Investigators may be required to capture and collect content as part of their process. And to maintain efficacy of potential evidence, a proper chain of control and evidentiary requirements must be met. Silo for Research integrates with Authentic8 Secure Storage, an encrypted, audited cloud-based storage repository for users and groups.
From digital signature to advanced tracking across the latest social media sites, you need to keep your analysts current with the latest techniques. Authentic8 OSINT Academy provides tradecraft training for all types of users, from executives who need to minimize their digital profile to experienced research analysts conducting deep investigations across the dark web.
