Understanding the Dark Web: 60 minutes, 1 CEU

Dark Web sounds like a sexy ‘members only’ club, where socialites get away with advantage and privilege, but in fact it’s a den of inequity operated by the technically sophisticated. Investigators may be sharp at Google and their databases but lack an understanding of what’s going on behind the scenes and how to operate in this nefarious world.

This intermediate to advanced hands-on class will examine the Dark Web, the channels used to institute private sales and exchanges, and criminal behavior. Participants will gain a thorough understanding of the Dark Web—criminality, anonymity, counterfeit products, child pornography, and human trafficking; learn the directory structures of the Dark Web; and learn Dark Web languages like Tor and Tails and the lingo of this underworld. Training will include exploring Dark Web channels for content and finding the resources and specialized search engines for searching against Dark Web content. Upon completion of this course, field investigators will understand how to

  • Use Tor safely and effectively, while learning the vulnerabilities
  • Conduct undercover online investigations on the Dark Web

All participants will receive handouts on concepts and investigative techniques.
