Multi-Topic E-mail Authorship Attribution Forensics
de Vel, Olivier, Anderson, Alison M., Corney, Malcolm W., & Mohay, George M. (2001) Multi-Topic E-mail Authorship Attribution Forensics. In ACM COnference on Computer Security - Workshop on Data Mining for Security Applications, November 8, 2001, Philadelphia, PA, USA.
In this paper we describe an investigation of forensic authorship identification or categorisation undertaken on multitopic e-mail documents. We use an extended set of e-mail document features such as structural characteristics and linguistic patterns together with a Support Vector Machine learning algorithm. Experiments on a number of e-mail documents generated by different authors on a set of topics gave promising results for both inter- and intra-topic author categorisation.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
