DARPA’s Memex is already making serious strides in helping search the Dark Web, but the addition of Rescue Forensics to DARPA’s resources is a game-changer. These new capabilities will not only help law enforcement better search the Dark Web, but give them the ability to pursue crimes and criminals that were previously hidden there.

DARPA, or the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, explicitly reaches for the transformational change from incremental advances.

It is with that premise that DARPA has a history of working alongside innovators in both the public and private sectors and has repeatedly delivered on that mission, transforming seemingly impossible revolutionary concepts into functional technology.

The results have included not only game-changing military capabilities, but also icons of modern civilian society we can’t imagine our lives without; the internet and GPS receivers small enough to embed in consumer devices as well as automated voice recognition and linguistic translation technology.

After serving as one of the parents of the web, DARPA has developed a new tool to help moderate it that is positioned to become even stronger: Memex.

Memex the Private Eye

Developed by DARPA, Memex is arguably the first viable deep web search engine.

Because it allows law enforcement to see and wade through up to 95 percent of the Dark Web, Memex will prove a crucial tool in investigating and apprehending users suspected of crimes like sex and narcotics trafficking as well as pedophilia.

In fact, Memex is already proving to be an effective success after the 2014 Benjamin Gaston case which resulted in a 50-year prison sentence.

What IST Research Acquiring Rescue Forensics Means for Memex

DARPA does not perform its engineering alchemy in isolation, but instead works within an innovation ecosystem that includes academic, corporate and governmental partners with a constant focus on the nation’s defense.

One such partner is IST Research, a private security and intelligence firm. While the company has a long working relationship with DARPA, IST Research recently acquired Rescue Forensics, a big data analytics company that works to provide over 450 law enforcement agencies with reliable and actionable data.

The combination of proprietary IST Research tools like the Pulse Platform and the new specialization in computer forensics via Rescue Forensics will only help to augment Memex’s capabilities.

Now, law enforcement will be able to locate and collect information from parts of the world where security and accessibility are limited or nonexistent.

So, Edgy Labs Readers, will these new computer forensics tools help centralize the fight against dark web crime?
