A Semantic Approach to Modelling of Cybersecurity Domain

Abstract: 

This paper addresses the issue of mastering the complex body of knowledge that is relevant for cybersecurity. The wide spectrum of threats and wide variety of resources are considered, and a semantic approach is proposed, as it seems not to be referred to very often in this context. The authors here examine how semantic technology may address the nature of this body of knowledge. Ultimately, the article seeks to enable sharing of security-related knowledge across separate sources of data concerning various entities, such as vulnerabilities and attack types, and also across communities of IT professionals, hackers, defence researchers, and others.

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.
