Overview Edit

This Report presents an overview of approaches taken, primarily by Member States, towards countering use of the Internet for terrorist purposes. It suggests all uses of the Internet for terrorist purposes can be classified according to four basic types of Internet use: (1) Use of the Internet to perform terrorist attacks by remotely altering information on computer systems or disrupting the flow of data between computer systems; (2) Use of the Internet as an information source for terrorist activities; (3) Use of the Internet as a means for disseminating information relevant to the advancement of terrorist purposes and (4) Use of the Internet as a means for supporting communities and networks dedicated either to pursuing or supporting acts of terrorism. The latter two are the areas in which terrorism and the internet appear most obviously to convert into a distinct, new phenomenon, which may require specific types of counter-strategies.
