Collecting Open Source Intelligence via Tailored Information Delivery Systems

ABSTRACT

The Internet offers a plethora of freely available information for possible use in Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) operations.  However, along with this information come challenges in finding relevant information and overcoming information overload.  This paper presents the results of an ongoing research in a Tailored Information Delivery Services (TIDS) system that aids users in retrieving relevant information through various open intelligence sources.  The TIDS provides a semantics-based query constructor that operates in a “What You Get is What You Need (WYGIWYNTM)” fashion and builds ontology based information tagging, theme extractor, and contextual model.
