Assignment: Cybersecurity Phishing Activities in Internet Usage

Assignment: Cybersecurity Phishing Activities in Internet Usage ORDER NOW FOR CUSTOMIZED AND ORIGINAL ESSAY PAPERS ON Assignment: Cybersecurity Phishing Activities in Internet Usage This is a survey that I’ve used initially to start my paper. The topic that I need you to work on is in Phishing Detection. I’ve done some research and chosen 30 articles to use. I’ve done the intro, background, annotated bib, and etc. Assignment: Cybersecurity Phishing Activities in Internet Usage What I need from you is to do the literature review. 1) start by numbering each reference in the references page (similar to [1], [2], …, [30]) (I’ll share it with you) 2) Choose 4 or 5 categories and as much as possible subcategories (sub-subcategories are not acceptable). For example, the categories for phishing detection will be URL-based, visual-similarity based, etc, (up to 5) similar to the sent survey earlier. 3) Draw a tree (similar to the attached image) that shows your categories and subcategories. And link them with the chosen references by adding the reference number ([1]) inside the circle/square to summarize your work. The root of the tree should be the reference/references you’ve got your categories from (most likely will be the survey/surveys). It’s possible that some references are linked with multiple categories/subcategories. 4) Write the literature review based on the categories you’ve build your research based on. Follow the instructions on pages 10-12 in the attached requirements. img_20200229_wa0018.jpg research_methods_2.pdf a_survey_of_url_based_phishing_detection Objective • • • • Learn research in a systematic fashion In-depth study of a topic Ability to read several articles and search for ideas and/or perform implementation Demonstrate understanding through an exam on selected articles Introduction • • • • A goal is to write professional research report after picking up a topic of interest.

Phase 7: The final Exam • To be discussed later Steps of Research Process Objective. • Outline a simple and effective strategy for finding information for a research report and documenting the sources you find. • Assignment: Cybersecurity Phishing Activities in Internet Usage • 2 Step 1: Identify a Topic • State your topic. • Identify the main concepts or keywords in your topic. Step 2: Test your Topic • Test the main concepts or keywords in your topic by looking them up in the appropriate background sources or by using them as search terms • If you are finding too much information and too many sources, narrow your topic • Finding too little information may indicate that you need to broaden your topic • • Step 3: Find Background Information • Look up your keywords in the net, etc. • Read related articles to set the context for your research. • Note any relevant items in the bibliographies at the end of the articles. • Additional background information may be found in your lecture notes, textbooks, and reserve readings. • Use keyword searching for a narrow or complex search topic. • Use subject searching for a broad subject. • Print or write down the citation (author, title,etc.) and the location information (call number and library). • Scan the bibliography for additional sources. This should set the stage for extensive literature review. • Step 4: Use Indexes to Find Periodical Articles • Use periodical indexes and abstracts to find citations to articles. The indexes and abstracts may be in print or computer-based formats or both. Step 5: Find other Resources • In IT you may need SW & HW. • Tools. Research Tips • • • • Work from the general to the specific. Find background information first, then use more specific and recent sources. Record what you find and where you found it. Write out a complete citation for each source you find; You may need it again later. Bibliography • a list of citations to books, articles, and documents • Examples: 3 • 1. Mathkour, H., A. Touir, and G. Assasa. “An XML Medaitor”, Communication of ACM, Vol. 13, No. 3, 1999, pp. 31-45. • 2. Robin, M. Algorithms, John Wiley & Sons, Inc., new York, NY, 1966, 1st ed. • Use Standard citation. • MLA, APA, IEEE, Chicago, etc. Examples of Citations • You cite it in your report in different ways. Examples: Mathkour et.al. [1] points out that … • The system described in [1] lacks… • Several systems [1, 2] have been constructed Use Standard citation. MLA, APA, IEEE, Chicago, etc. Collecting References • • Form your bibliography by collecting appropriate references for your topic Scrutinize each reference by analyzing your source of information] Analyzing Information Resources (Here is the bibliography evaluation) • Appraise a source by first examining the bibliographic citation. • The bibliographic citation is the written description of a book, journal article, essay, or some other published material that appears in a catalog or index. • Bibliographic citations characteristically have three main components: author, title, and publication information. These components can help you determine the usefulness of this source for your paper. Initial Appraisal: Authors • What are the author’s credentials–institutional affiliation (where he or she works), educational background, past writings, or experience? • Is the book or article written on a topic in the author’s area of expertise? You can use the various Who’s Who publications and the biographical information located in the publication itself to help determine the author’s affiliation and credentials. • Has your instructor mentioned this author? Have you seen the author’s name cited in other sources or bibliographies? Look for authors who are cited frequently. Is the author associated with a reputable institution or organization? What are the basic values or goals of the organization or institution? • Initial Appraisal: Date of Publication 4 • • Assignment: Cybersecurity Phishing Activities in Internet Usage When was the source published? This date is often located on the face of the title page below the name of the publisher. If it is not there, look for the copyright date on the reverse of the title page. On Web pages, the date of the last revision is usually at the bottom of the home page, sometimes every page. Is the source current or out-of-date for your topic? Topic areas of continuing and rapid development, such as sciences, demand more current information. On the other hand, topics in the humanities often require material that was written many years ago. At the other extreme, some news sources on the Web now note the hour and minute that articles are posted on their site. Initial Appraisal: Edition or revision • Is this a first edition of this publication or not? Further editions indicate a source has been revised and updated to reflect changes in knowledge, include omissions, and harmonize with its intended reader’s needs. Also, many printings or editions may indicate that the work has become a standard source in the area and is reliable. If you are using a Web source, do the pages indicate revision dates? Initial Appraisal: Publisher • Who is the publisher? If the source is published by a university press, it is likely to be scholarly. Although the fact that the publisher is reputable does not necessarily guarantee quality, it does show that the publisher may have high regard for the source being published. Initial Appraisal: Title of Journal • Is this a scholarly or a popular journal? This distinction is important because it indicates different levels of complexity in conveying ideas. Next perform: This is the second part of the reference evaluation Content Analysis • • • After initial appraisal, examine the body of the source. Read the preface (abstract) to determine the author’s intentions for the book. Scan the table of contents and the index to get a broad overview of the material it covers. • Note whether bibliographies are included. • Read the chapters that specifically address your topic. • Scanning the table of contents of a journal or magazine issue is also useful. The presence and quality of a bibliography at the end of the article may reflect the care with which the authors have prepared their work. 5 Intended Audience • • • What type of audience is the author addressing? Is the publication aimed at a specialized or a general audience? Is this source too elementary, too technical, too advanced, or just right for your needs? Objective Reasoning Is the information covered fact, oinion, or propaganda? Does the information appear to be valid and well-researched, or is it questionable and unsupported by evidences? • • Assumptions should be reasonable. Note errors or omissions. Are the ideas and arguments advanced more or less in line with other works you have read on the same topic? • The more radically an author departs from the views of others in the same field, the more carefully and critically you should scrutinize his or her ideas. Is the author’s point of view objective and impartial? Coverage • Does the work update other sources, substantiate other materials you have read, or add new information? • Does it extensively or marginally cover your topic? You should explore enough sources to obtain a variety of viewpoints. • Is the material primary or secondary in nature? Primary sources are the raw material of the research process. Secondary sources are based on primary sources. Choose both primary and secondary sources when you have the opportunity. Writing Style • • • • Is the publication organized logically? Are the main points clearly presented? Do you find the text easy to read, or is it stilted or choppy? Is the author’s argument repetitive? Evaluative Reviews Locate critical reviews of books in a reviewing source, such as Book Review Index, Book Review Digest, OR Periodical Abstracts. • Is the review positive? 6 • • Is the book under review considered a valuable contribution to the field? Does the reviewer mention other books that might be better? If so, locate these sources for more information on your topic. •Assignment: Cybersecurity Phishing Activities in Internet Usage Do the various reviewers agree on the value or attributes of the book or has it aroused controversy among the critics? To this point you have finished what is required to evaluate a reference. For references that are available only on the net, i.e., have been published only on the Web, you need to evaluate the web site itself. This is done as follows. Evaluating Web Sites • • • Step 1: identify the type of a page Step 2: use appropriate checklist Step 3: based on checklist criteria, determine relative quality of page Step 1: Identify the Type of Web Page • Advocacy • Business/Marketing • Informational • News • Personal • Entertainment Use the Appropriate Checklist • Answer questions with Yes or No Checklist: AUTHORITY • • • • • Is there a link to a page describing the purpose of the sponsoring organization? Is it clear who is responsible for the contents of the page? Is there a way of verifying the legitimacy of the page’s sponsor? That is, is there a phone number or postal address to contact for more information? (Simply an email address is not enough.) Is it clear who wrote the material and are the author’s qualifications for writing on this topic clearly stated? If the material is protected by copyright, is the name of the copyright holder given? Checklist: ACCURACY 7 • Are the sources for any factual information clearly listed so they can be verified in another source? • Is the information free of grammatical, spelling, and typographical errors? (These kinds of errors not only indicate a lack of quality control, but can actually produce inaccuracies in information.) • Is it clear who has the ultimate responsibility for the accuracy of the content of the material? • If there are charts and/or graphs containing statistical data, are the charts and/or graphs clearly labeled and easy to read? OBJECTIVITY • Is the information provided as a public service? • Is the information free of advertising? • If there is any advertising on the page, is it clearly differentiated from the informational content? Currency • Are there dates on the page to indicate: • When the page was written? • When the page was first placed on the Web? • When the page was last revised? • Are there any other indications that the material is kept current? • If material is presented in graphs and/or charts, is it clearly stated when the data was gathered? • If the information is published in different editions, is it clearly labeled what edition the page is from? Coverage • Is there an indication that the page has been completed, and is not still under construction? • If there is a print equivalent to the Web page, is there a clear indication of whether the entire work is available on the Web or only parts of it? • If the material is from a work which is out of copyright (as is often the case with a dictionary or thesaurus) has there been an effort to update the material to make it more current? Step 3: Based on the Checklist Criteria, Determine the Relative Quality of the Web Page 8 • The greater number of checklist questions answered yes, the more likely the page is of higher informational quality UP till Now • • You should have two lists of references: Accepted and Rejected according to the appraisal and various analysis pointed out so far You are now ready to annotate your bibliography, I.e., the accepted list of references Annotated Bibliography Paragraph1: • • • • describe the content (focus) of the item describe the usefulness of the item discuss any limitations that the item may have, e.g. grade level, timeliness etc. describe what audience the item is intended for Paragraph2: • • • evaluate reliability of the item evaluate the methods of research used in the item discuss any conclusions the author(s) may have made Paragraph3: • • describe your reaction to the item describe the relationships to other refs What Is the Purpose of an Annotated Bibliography? May serve a number of purposes. Including but not limited to: • • • • • Assignment: Cybersecurity Phishing Activities in Internet Usage A review of the literature on a particular subject Illustrate the quality of research that you have done Provide examples of the types of sources available Describe other items on a topic that may be of interest to the reader Explore the subject for further research Annotations Vs Abstracts • Abstracts are the purely descriptive summaries often found at the beginning of scholarly journal articles or in periodical indexes. 9 • Annotations are descriptive and critical; they expose the author’s point of view, clarity and appropriateness of expression, and authority. Literature Review A review of the literature is a classification and evaluation of what accredited scholars and researchers have written on a topic, organized according to a guiding concept such as your research objective, thesis, or the problem/issue you wish to address. What to do • Recognize relevant information. • Integrate and evaluate them. Goal Your reader wants to know: • What literature exists • Your informed evaluation of the literature. Methods • Information seeking • Critical appraisal THEN • • • • organize information and relate it to the thesis or your research question synthesize your reading of texts into a summary identify controversy when it appears in the literature develop questions for further research. OUTPUT • A description of what you have read • A conceptually organized synthesis of the results of your search What to Scrutinize? 10 • • • • • • • • • • • • Has the author formulated a problem/issue? Is the problem/issue ambiguous or clearly articulated? Is its significance (scope, severity, relevance) discussed? What are the strengths and limitations of the way the author has formulated the problem or issue? Could the problem have been approached more effectively from another perspective? What is the author’s theoretical framework? What is the relationship between the theoretical and research perspectives? Has the author evaluated the literature relevant to the problem/issue? Does the author include literature taking positions s/he does not agree with? In a research study, how good are the three basic components of the study design (i.e., population, intervention, outcome)? How accurate and valid are the measurements? Is the analysis of the data accurate and relevant to the research question? Are the conclusions validly based upon the data and analysis? In popular literature, does the author use appeals to emotion, one-sided examples, rhetorically-charged language and tone? Is the author objective, or is s/he merely ‘proving’ what s/he already believes? How does the author structure his or her argument? Can you ‘deconstruct’ the flow of the argument to analyze if/where it breaks down? Is this a book or article that contributes to the understanding of the problem under study, and in what ways is it useful for practice? What are the strengths and limitations? How does this book or article fit into the thesis, report, or question you are developing? LR Structure For the structure of your literature review, you may: • Review the literature in chronological order evaluating each stage • Compare one stream of literature with another • Analyze each of the major theoretical positions in turn • • • • Discuss and compare the thinking of the key writers in the field Analyze and compare different methodological approaches to a topic or issue Compare the way literature approaches a subject from different disciplines Compare popular literature with the more scholarly. Keep in Mind 11 • Remember you write about what writers say and how they think about their subject: how they reason, how they organize their ideas and the evidence they use to support their position? Citation • When you are writing the review it is critical that you cite and reference correctly. GOOD LUCK …It has been a pleasure.
