Closed for Business: Taking Down Darknet Markets presented at BSidesLondon 2019

by John Shier,

Summary : Darknet markets come and go for various reasons. Over the last several years we've seen law enforcement take down several of the largest darknet markets to ever exist on the dark web. In a story that involves multi-national cooperation, death and deception, this talk will look at the fascinating story behind Operation Bayonet and the seizure and subsequent takedown of AlphaBay and Hansa. It will also cover the subsequent closure, in April 2019, of the leading darknet market, Dream.
