"Using Data Mining Techniques for Detecting Terror-Related Activities on the Web"

An innovative knowledge-based methodology for terrorist detection by using Web traffic content as the audit information is presented. The proposed methodology learns the typical behavior (`profile') of terrorists by applying a data mining algorithm to the textual content of terror-related Web sites. The resulting profile is used by the system to perform real-time detection of users suspected of being engaged in terrorist activities. The receiver-operator characteristic (ROC) analysis shows that this methodology can outperform a command based intrusion detection system.
