Dark Web

Dark Web Traffic Analysis of Cybersecurity Threats through South African Internet Protocol Address Space

Abstract:

Cybersecurity crimes masterminded on the dark web pose social security threats globally and open a conundrum for researchers in the field of security informatics. The concealment of orthodox search engines has made it extremely hard for law enforcement agencies to track specific websites that pose great cybersecurity threats. This study applies the method of dark web crawling to track traffic with a high tendency for cybersecurity threats. The results indicate the malicious use of dark web in South Africa. The outcome of this study can help create an accurate revelation of cybersecurity threats that will assist law enforcement agencies in combatting cybercrime.

Investigation and Surveillance on the Darknet – A Secure Architecture to Reconcile Legal Aspects with Technology

Abstract:

Regarding efficient forensics and police activities, legalities often limit the ability to respond with technical action. Things that are technically feasible may be legally forbidden and must comply with a rigorous legal framework. This paper discusses a project of highly secure architecture that enables anyone to take part in the surveillance of the Darknet while complying with all the known legal constraints.
