TNO Singapore conducted two five-day advanced courses on darknet and cryptocurrencies at iTrust in April 2016. These courses were led by Professor Pieter Hartel from University of Twente. The course is provided by the iTrust, Centre for Research in Cyber Security in collaboration with TNO.
The course helped to jump-start participants’ capabilities in Dark Web and Bitcoin related research and kept them up-to-date on the latest technologies and research findings in this area. Topics include Anonymisation Networks, Criminal Business Models, Cryptocurrencies, Trading on Dark Web and Forensics. A game concept was made available for officers who wish to learn how Dark Web markets operate and how to police such markets.
