Netblock

IP addresses are normally grouped together. This group is called a network or netblock. A netblock has a start IP and an end IP. Thus examples of networks are 196.25.0.0-196.25.255.255 or 192.168.8.0-192.168.15.255. There are several notations for describing the same range of IP addresses. The network 196.25.0.0-196.25.255.255 can be described as 196.25.0.0/16 (CIDR) or 196.25.0.0 netmask 255.255.0.0. In Maltego we use the startIP-stopIP notation. A netblock of IP numbers are normally given to an organisation such as an ISP. Individuals (such as home users) normally get an IP number from the ISP. Thus - the IP number's information (such as whois information) will point to the ISP and not the individual.
