This presentation will look at the current state of “big-business” on the internet and how they make money. We will also look at how encryption is deployed throughout the internet, how it will likely be used in the future, and how it will affect criminal investigators throughout the world. Specifically, we will look at the wide-scale use of end-to-end encryption and the potential commercial adoption of anonymizing networks like The Onion Router (TOR).”
