Vortimo saves all web pages you’ve visited locally on your hard drive – exactly how you saw them in your browser.
Via an unobtrusive control you can switch recording to be on, off or to manual recording mode. You can also toggle tag visibility.
All text and images of pages are stored – but you can choose to tag & annotate specific elements for quick enrichment, reporting and recall.
Elements can be text, images or entire webpages and you can mark these right there in your browser without leaving the page you’re on.
To find a page, Vortimo allows you to search by:
- Time (when you’ve seen it)
- Site (where you’ve seen it)
- Both site and title of page
- Free text search (what you’ve seen)
- By object extracted (what)
- By image
- Free text Exif search
- Image size
It’s important to understand that all of these control surfaces can be combined – for example ‘where on Twitter (site) is the name ‘Roelof Temmingh’ (object) combined with the word ‘OSINT’ (free text search) seen in the last week (time) ?’
Pages that have been recorded can be played back – exactly how they appeared when you visited them.
You can export recorded pages in either PDF, PNG or as MHTML.
When selecting the object, the page and snippet where the object was found is shown in the main panel.
The objects extracted from the previous step can now be enriched by links or widgets.
Widgets make API calls to popular service providers and enrich the data even further.
Links are just that – links to popular OSINT sites where you can find more information on the extracted object.
Reports are organized by tag. Any element (object, image or URL) can be tagged either in the UI or directly from the browser. This design means that you can add elements to your report at great speed.
Reports can be exported to PDF.
Vortimo can be used by anyone that uses a browser to research a topic. This includes investigators that are profiling individuals or companies, intelligence analysts using open source intelligence (OSINT), IT security personnel or even academics doing domain specific research.
Vortimo collects and organises information that came from your browser – so it does not matter if you’re browsing the web, using social networks or visiting your company’s intranet.
“Vortimo is very useful for preserving your OSINT searches as well as getting a quick overview on where to pivot based on data.”
“Highly recommended for anyone who does OSINT or just any sort of research. Really, really handy!”
“Seriously worth checking for anyone that uses a browser.”
“Vortimo is super useful for research because it gives you full text search of pages you’ve visited as well as snapshots of those pages for memory context”
“Personal web archive and search engine for my browser history, it’s an amazing tool!”
Vortimo has been exceptional during OSINT investigations. It captures, catalogs and archives websites locally while-you-browse, allows for keyword searches within the scraped data and automatically identifies recurring e-mails, phone numbers, and other objects you might miss otherwise.
“Our digital exhausts produce more information than ever before. Trying to successfully manage collection, processing, exploitation and production today is a tough task. Vortimo made it easier to see the paths needed for an investigation.”
“Vortimo is one of the essential OSINT tools we use for our deep dive investigations to combat domain name security threat.”
“It is vital when conducing investigations to analyse the information you’ve captured, Vortimo not only makes this easy, it actually enhances the process”
