Training Synopsis

The dark web is a hive of illegal and illicit activity which requires specialist skills to access & investigate effectively. This course takes you beyond dark web basics through an intensive 1 day package that breaks down the intricacies of dark nets vs dark webs, how to safely access these networks with a strong emphasis on attribution for both the investigator and using attribution techniques when investigating targets, through to searching & investigating across the various forums, marketplaces & services available.

We cover the differences between various dark nets such as TOR, I2P & FreeNet, and explore in-depth how accessing the TOR network presents risks from state actors through to organised crime & other malicious actors, and how to protect yourself using advanced techniques. We teach how to investigate relays within the network, through to actors selling illicit goods across various dark web sites.

Using live examples & providing in-depth hands-on experience, we equip the student with the knowledge & skills to safely investigate actors on various dark webs, including the challenges of attribution for content hosts, through to setting up a workflow for monitoring dark web services. Simply, this dark web course is an intensive course that provides you with everything you need to know when accessing the dark web with concepts & techniques not taught in a comprehensive manner anywhere else.
