Description

This transform downloads the document at the specified URL and extracts the meta information from it. Maltego tries to map the meta data to Person, Phrase and Email Address, but in some cases the information is not correctly populated within the document itself. Visual inspection of the resultant entities are advised. The following fields are extracted from the document:

  • Company->Phrase
  • Creator->Phrase
  • Keywords->Phrase
  • Author->Person
  • LastSavedBy->Person
  • AuthorEmail->Email address
  • AuthorEmailDisplayName->Email address

Typical Use Case

Great for finding information on a domain - e.g. who wrote their documents etc.

Domain --> Documents ==> Person, Email, Phrase

==> Parse meta information
--> Related Transform

Example

Starting with the domain "apple.com" we can retrieve documents using a search engine. From the returned documents we can parse the document meta information. For the given document, the transfrom recongizes the author and a keyword.
