Mr Jacques MARTINON, Head of the Mission against Cybercrime in the Directorate for Criminal Matters and Graces (DACG) of the Ministry of Justice, will give a conference on March 16 at the MSH-Alpes about “Going Dark, Going Cyber: Law Enforcement, Cybercriminality and Lawful Access to Data”.

This event is co-organized by the Grenoble Alpes Data Institute and the Cybersecurity Grenoble Alpes Institute.

Abstract


Our societies have certainly undergone profound technological changes for several decades, but these changes seem to be accelerating abruptly under the effect of what is called for ease the "digital revolution".

The various anonymization techniques, the unbridled liberalization of encryption, the birth of cryptocurrencies, the strong limits to cross-border access to digital evidence, and the difficulties police and justice services have in accessing data have contributed to the emergence of the phenomenon known as "Going Dark", which reflects the idea of criminal justice gone blind.

These opportunities to obfuscate criminals respond to the initiatives of public authorities, legal and / or technical, to try to counter or limit these worrying trends that could compromise the effectiveness of the judicial response.

Cybercrime is also distinguished by the fertile imagination of its authors, both in the development of new vectors of attack and new forms of monetization. By parasitic economic models emerging from the digital activity, cybercriminals hope to speed up the regulator and the investigator.

As the profits of cybercrime grow, we finally witness the hyperspecialization of cybercriminals with the notion of "Crime as a Service", as well as the emergence of a "gray zone", voluntarily maintained by some actors, oscillating between purely financial motivations and geopolitical aspects.
