Abstract

|free text=}} Anonymity software bundles like TOR, I2p has enabled tens of thousands of users to browse the internet anonymously regardless of their technical background. This has, in turn, resulted in the emergence of anonymous marketplaces. They often specialize in "black market" goods such as pornography, weapons, drugs, narcotics, etc. Some of the popular marketplaces are silk road, armory, general store. In my research, I will be focusing on the following problems statements. Money-Mules as a cash-Out strategy, Commoditization of Cash-Out process in Dark Markets, Possible ways to disrupt the Dark-Markets business model and lastly research on Malware-as-a-service, Cyberware-as-a-Service used in dark-web.
