Proven In Bringing Criminals to Justice
Our solutions have been used in some of the biggest cases involving dark web activity and are proven in bringing perpetrators to justice. Investigators gather evidence on dark web criminals including groups that are dealing arms, drugs, and CSEA, or are connected to hostile intelligence, ransomware gangs, organized crime, and human trafficking.
How do you investigate criminal activity on the dark web?
Criminals use networks like Tor and I2P for their anonymity, which makes dark web investigation difficult for law enforcement – but not impossible. In this short video our CTO Dr. Gareth Owenson talks about the techniques that investigators can use to catch criminals operating on the dark web.
Identify Criminal Actors
Investigate individuals on the dark web with the ability to cross-reference aliases, usernames, and pseudonyms across marketplaces, forums, and sites to easily build a profile of high-severity criminal actors.
Dark Web Sources
Use Searchlight Cyber to Access
850,000+ dark web sites
Hosted on the Tor network, where cybercriminals believe they can act anonymously.
100+ dark web marketplaces
Selling illegal commodities ranging from arms and drugs, to malware and stolen credit card details.
70+ dark web forums
Including those used by sex offenders to share and distribute CSEA.
Clear and Deep Web Sites
Not hosted on the dark web but are nevertheless hard for law enforcement to access, such as private social media channels, and unindexed websites.
Built for Law Enforcement and Government Agencies
Our solutions were built in close collaboration with law enforcement and government agencies to give investigators access to the dark web without putting them at risk. They are designed to be intuitive and do not require technical knowledge or special software to use, helping to reduce resource requirements for law enforcement.
Our case management features enable you to maintain, audit, and report on investigations in a format that is accessible to other departments and the criminal justice system. Our collaboration tools mean you can work across departments within the platform and easily deconflict targets.
