This course breaks the stereotype that anything related to the dark web is untraceable and futile to investigate. “Dark Web and the Internet” is the first class of its kind, directed towards both first responders and investigators to remove the veil of the “dark web” and understand the internet. Class attendees will be familiarized with how the “dark web” works, the browsers utilized, “dark net” markets, and be provided with the fundamental understanding of cryptocurrency transactions. The instructor will cover common techniques for “dark web” related shipments, as well as the means to detect recipients and curtail their deliveries, how to detect “dark web” related overdoses, and the best practices for the scene. Attendees will be exposed to cutting edge tradecraft regarding the exploitation of “end to end encryption” applications that have become so prevalent in the realm of “dark web” narcotics, and how to go “undercover” on the “dark web”. Moreover, the instructor will share his first hand experiences creating multiple investigations and operations that helped take down sellers of narcotics but the markets themselves.
