The Internet is the platform of choice for extremist activities of most any type. Usama Bin Laden indicated long ago that 90% of the battle is information. In this discussion, we’ll take a look at extremist jihadi groups using Web 2.0 technology as methods for information dissemination, recruitment, product development, and propaganda while examining their use of our security tools that are hacked and cracked. Extremist Jihadis use of the Internet has expanded from vBulletin to the use of Facebook, Twitter, BlipTV, YouTube, Google Groups and other online media. . Extremist Jihadis show a growing understanding of the critical role that information technology plays in the day-to-day operations of our economy and national security. Their recruitment efforts have expanded to include young people studying mathematics, computer science and engineering. They tap into disaffected Westerners who have adopted their perverted version of Islam as well as leveraging disillusioned Muslims who have move to the West. The Internet serves as the entry point for a process of radicalization that can lead to operational execution as exhibited by recent events in the United States. How does one prepare when facing an enemy who uses all our technologies and tools against us? This session will take you through the actual sites analyzed over the past year; their publishing techniques and tools for information dissemination that becomes viral.
