The Digital Forensics and Darknet Investigations site serves as a hub for researchers, practitioners, policymakers, students, and anyone interested in cybercrime and cyber security-related topics. The team reports the latest information on cutting-edge research and other cyber initiatives at The University of Alabama involving international cybersecurity matters, criminal activities on the Tor Network, and digital forensic investigations.

Dr. Dolliver and her team currently offer free darknet investigations training courses to all local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies. The trainings are held in the JECTF‘s Network Intrusion Lab (NIL) training room. The NIL is located in Cyber Hall and houses a large training space serving both law enforcement officers and UA students, as well as secure, dedicated research space for criminologists and forensic examiners.
