Dark Web Take Downs Partially Effective (Stephen E Arnold)
LOUISVILLE, Ky., Aug. 8, 2017 /PRNewswire-iReach/ Stephen E Arnold's new book, "Dark Web Notebook," points out that usage of the Dark Web is likely to increase as censorship, law enforcement actions, and banning of virtual private networks increase.
In the course of the two years' research for the book, the study team formulated two other conclusions about the Dark Web, a part of the Internet accessible with special software.
First, making sense of Dark Web traffic, products, services, and messages requires sophisticated software tools and systems. Companies like Digital Shadows and more than 15 other firms provide tools to shine a light on Dark Web activity.
Second, closer work between law enforcement and intelligence agencies and commercial vendors will be a standard practice. Due to the need for specialized expertise plus time and budget realities, third parties will work closely on investigations requiring specialized knowledge and capabilities becoming a "member" of LE and intel teams.
The Dark Web is one way for those who want to evade oversight and law enforcement to conduct business. The positive uses are being outstripped by those who want to evade online filters, bans on certain types of security software, and commercial companies refusing to index certain content. Practical, easy-to-understand information is difficult to find. The "Dark Web Notebook" fills this gap for those engaged in law enforcement, intelligence analysis, and security research.
One feature of the book, written for law enforcement, security and intelligence professionals, is a Dark Web FAQ which answers the most frequently asked questions at my presentations and webinars. The book included is a "quick tour" of Dark Web sites offering a range of products and services such as weapons, false passports, malware, counterfeit currency, and stolen credit card accounts, among others.
The250-page bookprovides an overview of the type of informationone can find on the Dark Web. The reader learns how to conduct an investigation on theDark Web using techniques designed to protect the "actual" identity of the person joining forums andengaging in dialogues with vendors of contraband.
The book profiles a number of other commercial firms which offer Dark Web-related services and includes one of the most comprehensive lists of commercial firms with Dark Web capabilities. Plus, "Dark Web Notebook" also describes open source tools which can be used in the course of a Dark Web investigation.In addition to a detailed table of contents, the "Dark Web Notebook" contains a detailed index, a glossary, original illustrations, and links to a range of Dark Web sites.The book costs $49.
