The explosion of Web-based data has created a demand among executives and technologists for methods to identify, gather, analyze, and utilize data that may be of value to corporations and organizations. The emergence of data mining, and the larger field of Web mining, has businesses lost within a confusing maze of mechanisms and strategies for obtaining and managing crucial intelligence. Web Data Mining and Applications in Business Intelligence and Counter-Terrorism responds by presenting a clear and comprehensive overview of Web mining, with emphasis on CRM and, for the first time, security and counter-terrorism applications. The tools and methods of Web mining are revealed in an easy-to-understand style, emphasizing the importance of practical, hands-on experience in the creation of successful e-business solutions. The author, a program director for Data and Applications Security at the National Science Foundations, details how both opportunities and dangers on the Web can be identified and managed. Armed with the knowledge contained in this book, businesses can collect and analyze Web-based data to help develop customer relationships, increase sales, and identify existing and potential threats. Organizations can apply these same Web mining techniques to battle the real and present danger of terrorism, demonstrating Web mining's critical role in the intelligence arsenal.

Liu has written a comprehensive text on Web mining, which consists of two parts. The first part covers the data mining and machine learning foundations, where all the essential concepts and algorithms of data mining and machine learning are presented. The second part covers the key topics of Web mining, where Web crawling, search, social network analysis, structured data extraction, information integration, opinion mining and sentiment analysis, Web usage mining, query log mining, computational advertising, and recommender systems are all treated both in breadth and in depth. His book thus brings all the related concepts and algorithms together to form an authoritative and coherent text. The book offers a rich blend of theory and practice. It is suitable for students, researchers and practitioners interested in Web mining and data mining both as a learning text and as a reference book. Professors can readily use it for classes on data mining, Web mining, and text mining. Additional teaching materials such as lecture slides, datasets, and implemented algorithms are available online.

This book constitutes the thoroughly refereed post-conference proceedings of the Second International Conference on on Signal-Image Technology and Internet-Based Systems, SITIS 2006, held in Hammamet, Tunisia, in December, 2006. The 33 full papers were carefully reviewed and selected from the best papers presented at the conference and are presented in revised and extended form. Part of the papers focus on the emerging modeling, representation and retrieval techniques that take into account the amount, type and diversity of information accessible in distributed computing environment. Other contributions are devoted to emerging and novel concepts, architectures and methodologies for creating an interconnected world in which information can be exchanged easily, tasks can be processed collaboratively, and communities of users with similarly interests can be formed while addressing security threats that are present more than ever before.

Although the use of data mining for security and malware detection is quickly on the rise, most books on the subject provide high-level theoretical discussions to the near exclusion of the practical aspects. Breaking the mold, Data Mining Tools for Malware Detection provides a step-by-step breakdown of how to develop data mining tools for malware detection. Integrating theory with practical techniques and experimental results, it focuses on malware detection applications for email worms, malicious code, remote exploits, and botnets. The authors describe the systems they have designed and developed: email worm detection using data mining, a scalable multi-level feature extraction technique to detect malicious executables, detecting remote exploits using data mining, and flow-based identification of botnet traffic by mining multiple log files. For each of these tools, they detail the system architecture, algorithms, performance results, and limitations. Discusses data mining for emerging applications, including adaptable malware detection, insider threat detection, firewall policy analysis, and real-time data mining Includes four appendices that provide a firm foundation in data management, secure systems, and the semantic web Describes the authors’ tools for stream data mining From algorithms to experimental results, this is one of the few books that will be equally valuable to those in industry, government, and academia. It will help technologists decide which tools to select for specific applications, managers will learn how to determine whether or not to proceed with a data mining project, and developers will find innovative alternative designs for a range of applications.

Effective electronic commerce requires integrating resources and extracting the critical information from across Web sites. From the recent efforts to develop tools for interoperability and warehousing between scattered information on the web emerged the new discipline of web data management, and this book, Web Data Management and Electronic Commerce. The first of its kind, it combines data management and mining, object technology, electronic commerce, Java, and the Internet into a complete overview of the concepts and developments in this new field. It details technologies in security, multimedia data management techniques, and real-time processing and discusses the emerging standards of Java Database Connectivity, XML, metadata, and middleware. A simple Web site isn't good enough anymore To remain competitive, you need Internet capabilities that allow you and your customers to buy, sell, and advertise. Even if you are unfamiliar with e-commerce, this self-contained volume provides the background you need to understand it through appendices that explain data management, Internet, security, and object technology. Approachable enough for the beginner and complete enough for the expert, Web Data Management and Electronic Commerce helps you to manage information effectively and efficiently.
