Abstract [en]

The revolution in information technology that took place in the middle of the 1990’s has offered new possibilities for terrorist organisations in terms of consolidation and action. In this essay these possibilities are limited to the use of Internet, and defined as active use (logical attacks) and passive use (consolidation).This essay focuses on the passive use of the Internet. The attempt is to answer questions on which of the studied organisations that make use of the Internet, the purposes they have for publicising themselves and to examine if there are any similarities between the different categories use of the Internet.The essay shows different definitions of “terrorism” and gives an example on how to divide terrorist organisations into different categories.It also gives an overview on the revolution in information technology of the 1990’s and brings to light the possibilities it offers the terrorist organisations.A total of 37 organisations have been studied, and 21 of these have been found on the Internet. The difficulties that the author has met during the search for the organisations on the Internet are described in connection to the general description of the study. In conclusion, the author discusses the results in terms of purpose, infrastructural prerequisites, technical competence, the strength in resources, and need for secrecy. All these varibles affect the organisations use of the Internet as a way of publicising.
