The Dark Web
Despite its name, the Dark Web is not a mysterious entity. It can be used as a tool for commerce, reconnaissance, operations, or anything else possible on the internet Infamously, some networks have hosted marketplaces where illicit goods and information are bought and sold.
In this course, we examine trends in several "dark" networks such as tor, i2p: scuttlebutt and others. We will identify opportunities to utilize anonymous, semi-anonymous: and pseudo-anonymous technologies to help and harm organizations and consider the impact of these technologies on the future.
Students will receive hands-on experience with these networks by connecting to them from the classroom and browsing the services available.
