The articles in this issue of IDA Research Notes describe our research related to the development and application of the IDA Text Analytics (IDATA) capability. IDATA development was originally motivated by an important Department of Defense (DoD) challenge: how to rapidly assess damage from cyberattacks in which engineering documents have been exfiltrated from defense industry networks. To address this challenge, IDA researchers developed the initial IDA Text Analytics capability, originally known as ITA. It is still in use today in the DoD Cyber Crime Center.
