The activities of cyberspace are not always cooperative, and confrontational behavior under non-cooperative conditions has even occurred at the beginning of the Internet and will persist. To describe the non-cooperative situation, we construct an ontology model to depict the entities and relations in the cyberspace. We divide the cyberspace into physical, logical, and social domains, and then build a conceptual model. According to the ontology modeling method, the upper layer, the domain and the application ontology are hierarchically constructed. Based on the Semantic Web Rule Language (SWRL), a reasoning framework is initially constructed to implement basic logical reasoning. We map the structured data in the data source to the model according to the predefined rules file, and extract the unstructured data to obtain the structured data. In order to verify the validity of the model, we designed a prototype system to integrate multi-source heterogeneous data and to achieve efficient query and reasoning.
