Abstract
The World-Wide Web has become a great resource for information and communication throughout the world. However, at the same time, it also has long been abused as a platform for criminals to collaborate on a whole range of criminal activity. In the last ten years law enforcement agencies have started to establish organizational units dedicated to the task of performing general scanning on the web. Due to the vast growth of information on the Web and the limited personnel and time resources, this is a quite challenging task. In this paper we describe current work on a web-mining system to support criminal investigators in performing general scanning for suspicious or illegal web pages. The system automatically analyses websites, learning to classify sites, enabling it to filter and automatically differentiate between suspicious and innocuous web content. The analyst is freed from having to examine individually every single URL from the list of websites which have been crawled. In order to learn class models for the algorithm, we apply a simple yet powerful learning method known as the perceptron algorithm.
