Abstract: Many virtual spaces are used for a wide range of trafficking - to name just a few examples - the sale of narcotics, counterfeit or stolen goods, forged documents, animals, organs and even the trafficking of human beings. Indeed, many activities related to the promotion, sale and evaluation of illicit markets are conducted online. These activities leave traces that allow us to reconstruct them and follow their dynamics. This presentation addresses the issues and approaches to implement monitoring process through two fundamental questions: what are the online spaces exploited by traffickers? And how to detect them. Than, examples of analysis based on the exploitation of Internet traces are presented. They illustrate the processes of detecting crime repetitions, such as delinquent networks, virtual hotspots, but also geographical concentrations related to the online activities.
