For the last two months, we’ve been wardriving Antifa rioters, letting them associate with mobile honeypots to access internet, so we could look at their traffic. The results were extremely interesting. We were able to map roughly 8632 individuals engaged at all levels of Antifa activity, from rioting and planning, to handling funds for riot gear and legal fees. These networks were used to make social network maps, with k=3 to identify those individuals with the densest inter-connectivity within the broader network. These represent the most socially connected individuals in Portland’s Antifa community; this indicates who is most valuable to investigate. At first we limited this to the Portland area, but then we noticed that the connections were national, and international. We will be leaking this information periodically. Make sure to use whatever leads we leak to dig. Antifa included members of city and state government, including the city council, prosecutor, and mayor’s office. It helps us maintain opsec to release this piecemeal, and ask you to further contextualize it through your own analysis. We’re giving you enough to find valuable connections. We will leave hints, the rest is up to you.
If you have a free afternoon, have fun digging!
