Education

  • http://www.irongeek.com/i.php?page=videos/intro-to-tor-i2p-darknets
    • "This class introduces students to the I2P and Tor Darknets. We cover setting up Tor & I2P, the basics of use, and how to make hidden services. We also go over case examples like Eldo Kim Harvard & the Harvard Bomb Threat, Hector Xavier Monsegur (Sabu)/Jeremy Hammond (sup_g) & LulzSec, Freedom Hosting & Eric Eoin Marques and finally Ross William Ulbricht/“Dread Pirate Roberts” of the SilkRoad, to explain how people have been caught and how it could have been avoided.
