The Sunday Times recently exposed dark net marketplaces, unmasking a government contractor selling high-tech auto-theft equipment and a major dealer of illegal steroids. Other users ranged from middle-class students to professional poker players. Louis Goddard gives a behind-the-scenes look at the story, showing how the team used open source techniques to extract key location and contact data – including email addresses and geotags – from several marketplace backups, going on to link this data to named individuals in the UK. He will also show how the same data might be used by journalists elsewhere in the world, e.g. in the Netherlands, where many of the dealers identified by the investigation source their products. The session will be followed by an informal networking meeting. http://www.thetimes.co.uk/edition/news/dark-net-dealers-dragged-into-the-light-kx05bc3jd
