Interpol is training police to fight crime on the Darknet
Interpol has just completed its first training course designed to help police officers to use and understand the Darket. The five-day course was held in Singapore, and attended by officers from Australia, Finland, France, Ghana, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Netherlands, Singapore, Sri Lanka and Sweden. According to Interpol, the next course will be held in Brussels.
The students did not, it seems, explore the Darknet itself. Interpol said in a statement that its Cyber Research Lab "created its own private Darknet network, private cryptocurrency and simulated marketplace, recreating the virtual 'underground' environment used by criminals to avoid detection."
