The provider that Ontic has partnered with to provide Dark Web data to the Platform
Hackishness is defined as:
The rating of how likely content could be used for criminal activity.
How is Hackishness used in DarkOwl Vision?
A ‘Hackishness’ rating is assigned to every piece of content collected by DarkOwl Vision, at the time of indexing. It is based on a matching learning algorithm that considers many different variables, such as patterns, metadata, terms, and more; no single element is responsible for the final score.
The Hackishness Algorithm
The algorithm defines a set of feature vectors with over 100 independent decision variables, see the table below for examples. The algorithm is probabilistic and takes into account both the presence and the absence of these variables.
The rating scale is from 0.01 (1%) to 1.0 (100%).
