D1.2 LEA Use Case Scenarios

This document represents the deliverable 1.2 “D1.2– LEA Use Case Scenarios (Public Version)” of the RED-Alert project, henceforth referred to as D1.2. This is an anonymised version of the deliverable D1.1, which is classified as RESTRICTED-EU.

The main objective of this document is to gather and analyse the use case scenarios proposed by the LEA partners, in order identify and describe the initial high-level user requirements of the RED-Alert project. These requirements will be further detailed and extended into the technical, commercial and legal requirements specifications respectively. Furthermore, they will feed into the design of the RED-Alert overall system architecture, towards the development and integration of the platform’s components into a complete toolset that will deliver the vision of the RED-Alert project.The advent of the internet has provided the world with new and never-before imagined possibilities. While the internet has been used to positively advance the world as we know it, it has also been taken advantage of by criminals and terrorists. Today’s terrorists use the internet for a variety of purposes such as propaganda, recruitment, radicalization, financing, training, planning and execution of attacks.‎[1]

In order to better understand the current needs of law enforcement agencies in combating terror use of the internet, the RED-Alert team surveyed LEA partners in the project and asked them to provide examples of radicalization. These examples are presented in this document as case studies and formed the basis for deriving the use cases that will be supported by the RED-Alert solution, alongside a review of the scientific literature on the subject matter, and finally the prioritized list of identified initial user requirements, using an iterative approach.
