A call for sponsors and participants

The anonymous nature of Darkweb sites is a challenge for law enforcement agencies.

We invite tech-savvy minds to apply to participate in this 5-day virtual hackathon event during December 6-10, with the goal of investigating data from the Darkweb and uncovering actionable intelligence that can be used to effectively handle real-world cases involving crimes on the darkweb.

Darkwebathon is hosted by ATII with our licensed darkweb platform, Hades, to join hands with socially responsible individuals with the goal of following the money to fight slavery. Using Hades, participants will identify and profile potential traffickers, by crawling for data. Thousands of leads were generated by a variety of automated methods to enable teams to further collect actionable intelligence.
