Aleph Transforms for Maltego
Aleph is an open-source structured data search tool for documents and databases. It was developed by the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP). While upholding the highest journalistic ethics and editorial standards, OCCRP develops and deploys cutting-edge tech tools to enable collaborative, secure data-driven investigations. The organization also partners with advocacy groups , empowering civil society with information to meaningfully press for justice and change, and unearths evidence that enables law enforcement to act.
With OCCRP Aleph, a global archive of research material for investigative reporting, journalists can search and cross-reference more than one billion records to trace criminal connections and patterns and efficiently collaborate across borders. A vast index of multiple datasets such as company registries, sanction lists, person-of-interest lists, land registry data, air, and maritime registries, offshore leaks, etc. is made accessible through public search access. This aids investigators and journalists across the world to securely access and search large amounts of data, infer connections, find stolen funds, spot political influence, and unveil corruption.
Note that the data stored on Aleph comes from various sources and any findings based on data in Aleph must be independently verified. As stated by the OCCRP, Aleph is also not a valid standalone KYC solution for regulated industries.
