Dark Web Investigator

At the farthest corner of the online world lie the hidden recesses of the Dark Web and its Darknet marketplaces. The Dark Web may be accessed for both legitimate purposes and to conceal criminal or other malicious activities. 

Intermediate Level

This hands-on 5-day course will teach you how to access the Dark Web safely and anonymously, navigate within the many layers of the Dark Web to discover hidden Wiki’s and dig through Dark Web search engines. Course participants will learn how to create and use a life-like persona that would withstand scrutiny. Attendees will also learn how to interlink multiple personas that would endure a performed link analysis and other investigative methods. Golden nuggets of investigative intelligence can be found within Dark Web forums and chat rooms. Participants will know the importance and impact of chat room related criminal activity, auctions, locations, transactions, and etiquette. Furthermore, we will examine the various Darknet marketplace models and niches, crypto currencies used on the Dark Web, marketplace takedowns, and key Darknet vendors. Attendees will learn how buyers and sellers on the Darknet transact business under the cloak of anonymity.
