How does DocTracker work?

DocTracker tags your document after a successful upload.

When anybody then opens this tagged document, an http or smb ping is sent to the DocTracker sensor using the standard ports of each protocol which will then allow you to gather information (timestamp, location of the IP address etc).

How do I know when documents are opened?
If notifications for hit events have been configured you will be informed when and where documents or ZIP files have been opened.
Each document allows you to inspect the details of the hits or alerts (e.g. timestamp and the public IP address).
The client software used to open the document will also be displayed, aswell as a link to to get more information about the IP address.
Can a document be edited after it has been uploaded to DocTracker?
With the MS 365 Office Suite, documents can be edited without effecting the active tag.
Can I use DocTracker on fake documents (lures) in a CyberTrap Deception Technology environment?
Yes. Just like for real (e.g. confidential) documents, Doctracker can be used on fake documents which are stored on a CyberTrap Decoy system, e.g. with a filesharing service like SMB or NFS.
If an adversary steals these artificial documents and passes them on to their client and the latter opens it, then his public IP address will be sent to the DocTracker server along with other information. This way you can geo-locate the documents.
