Terrorist organizations use the Internet for a wide range of activities, including the dissemination of messages, making contact, recruitment of manpower, fundraising, propaganda, incitement, psychological warfare and intelligence. Cyber-defense activities by terrorist elements include the dissemination of information and guidebooks on the subject, the provision of guidelines regarding modes of action, encryption and transfer to the darknet, which they claim will improve the efficiency of traffic protection and anonymity on the part of the organizations themselves as well as their supporters. Such activities are designed to protect against tracking software used by intelligence agencies, activists and various Internet platforms operating against terrorist organizations on the Internet in general, and on social networks in particular.
