This paper examines the illicit ecosystem for deep fakes.

Their technology evolution and migration paths from surface web to deep and dark sites, and uncover some of the actors creating and disseminating these videos. Nisos undertook research into deep fake technology (superimposing video footage of a face onto a source head and body) to determine if we could find the existence of a deep fake illicit digital underground economy or actors offering these services.


Our research for this white paper focused specifically on the commoditization of deep fakes: whether deep fake videos or technology is being sold for illicit purposes on the surface, deep, or dark web.
