Data Stories

​Do you have any stories about using data from AZSecure-data or from another source? Data stories help convey the importance of easily accessible and well documented datasets. We would love to help you tell and share your data story. Read some examples from the earth sciences collected by DataONE and consider contributing your own ISI data stories to

Having established through this test portal that there is a need for such a portal based on use so far, the DIBBs-ISI project is planning migration from the test portal, a static HTML page, to a more dynamic archival content management system. DSpace was chosen as this CMS as best supporting the identified needs of the user community. DSpace will allow for greater discoverability and more flexible organization of the datasets. 

DIBBs-ISI is also working in partnership with Dr. Hsinchun Chen on an EAGER funded project to explore the needs of the Cybersecurity community for a platform for data, tools, and analytics sharing. To this end, DIBBs-ISI associates presented in the Cybersecurity Big Data and Analytics Sharing Workshop co-located at the WiCyS Conference in Tucson, AZ, March 31st, 2017. The workshop report and presenters' slides are available.

This demonstration testbed is being made available to the ISI community as a way to receive feedback while we continue to enhance our repository. This service started by offering browsing access to downloadable forums from the Artificial Intelligence Lab's Dark Web and Geo Web collections, which presently includes nearly 40 million postings. Each forum collection contains millions of postings from hundreds of thousands of authors, and may be in English, Arabic, French, German, Indonesian, Pashto, Russian or Urdu, depending on the forum. The repository also includes a large collection of Internet phishing websites from the University of Virginia, with collections of Escrow, Financial, and Pharmacy sites. Recent additions to the repository include hacker forums in English and Russian, Chinese underground market forums, and chat logs that can be used in the study of underground behavior and how hackers learn from each other, the formation of social networks, relationships with the underground economy, and more. The Patriot, militia, hate and linked websites collection based off the Southern Poverty Law Center’s 2009 list can be used to study rhetoric and communication, group dynamics, extreme social movements, and other topics, in information and the social sciences. Two collections of network traffic can be used to investigate malware and other malicious traffic. There is also a new set of security tweets available.

 All data sets can be downloaded freely for non-commercial education and research use.
