Abstract

This poster analyzes the Alphabay underground marketplace-an anonymous trading grounds for illicit goods and services. Listing data was collected and interpreted using Latent-Dirichlet Allocation (LDA), to determine common topics in the listings. Results found offer insight to the types of goods being sold and who is selling them.
