Course Description


The Dark Web is a vast, well-traveled, and nearly ignored waypoint of exfiltrated corporate assets as well as discussions of network attacks and methodology. Information security regularly overlooks the significance of this largely untapped resource. This course covers tools, techniques, and tactics for leveraging the Dark Web as a means for defending organizational assets proactively and reactively. The Dark Web consists of networking environments and infrastructure that does not leverage traditional TCP/IP technology. Appreciating these networks and adopting a successful defensive posture includes knowing what attack vectors are currently in use.

In addition, students will learn how to establish private and anonymous technologies to enhance their own efforts to conduct research and investigation. Access to the
Dark Web requires specialized programs, such as TOR (The Onion Router).
