DEFCON:Touring the Darkside of the Internet. An Introduction to Tor

This is an introduction level talk. The talk itself will cover the basics of Tor, Darknets, Darknet Market places, and Bitcoin. I will start by giving the audience an overview of Tor and how it works. I will cover entry nodes, exit nodes, as well as hidden services. I will then show how you connect to Tor on both Linux/OSX and Windows and demo it off. Once we are connected to Tor, I am going to show how to find Tor hidden services and then demo off browsing around some marketplaces. Once the audience has a solid grasp on what the market places offer, I am going to start dealing the process of purchasing something off of it. I will cover bitcoin and bitcoin mining. After we know about how bitcoin works, we will cover purchasing items. 

I will cover purchasing PO Box's and the pickup of packages. Finally I will finish up with some concerns you may want to be aware of and my recommendations to help make the use of TOR, Bitcoin, and Marketplaces more secure
