Privacy in Open Source Intelligence and Big Data Analytics: Case ‘MARISA’ for Maritime Surveillance

Abstract:

This case study analyses Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) and Big Data Analytics (BDA) with an emphasis on cyber reconnaissance and the associated privacy concerns. The main focus is privacy considerations in OSINT and BDA. The study also analyses how maritime surveillance authorities can act so that their reconnaissance efforts would gain/maintain public approval. The empirical case explores privacy challenges in the Maritime Integrated Surveillance Awareness (MARISA) project. The overall goal is to accelerate the discussion on the problem of privacy breaches that may lead to restrictions of individual liberty and erosion of the foundations of trust in society.

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.
