Knowledge Representation Frameworks for Terminology Management inCybersecurity: The OCS Project Use Case

Managing technical terms proper to specialized languages, represents one of the main tasks of Knowledge Organization Systems (KOSs). Cybersercurity domain contains a plethora of such terms, with a constant growth of new terms , which still need to be structured and organized from a semantic point of view. This paper aims at providing a presentation of KOSs for organizing specialized terminologies, specifically related to Cybersecurity, starting from a comparison between semantic resources presenting a higher level of semantic representation, i.e., thesauri and ontologies. To show their potentiality in the management of the CYbersecurity technical terminology, an outline of their application within a project carried out at the Institute of Informatics and Telematics of the National Research Council is described, and the distinction between them detailed in the conclusive discussion. A specific focus will be given to the more accurate description that ontologies are able to provide due to the way semantic relationships existing among terms and concepts belonging to a specific field of knowledge are formalized.
