3. This section concludes with a purpose paragraph
1. In the last paragraph of the introduction you will state “The purpose of this project was…..” You will also present the specific research question for the paper. If you are missing this your grade will suffer.
2. Literature Review (This is the heart of the paper)
1. Here resource, after resource, after resource is presented to answer the research question(s). Fact based! You are merely presenting the facts of each source represented. You are not presenting opinion.
2. Organize the sources presented as they relate to answering the research question(s).
3. Discussion of the Findings
1. In this section summarize the findings of the literature sources presented in the Literature Review section.

Assignment:
The Onion Router (Tor). Anonymizing browser used by criminals and the government.
To accomplish the assignment for this project you will need to research academic papers and scholarly based resources that delve into the Tor network. Through this research you should be able to find a specific topic to write on. It is assumed in the academic community here at Utica that the reader understands Tor, but does not understand how Tor can be used by the criminal element to conduct crimes nor how the government investigates this network. You will need to research the Utica library and find academic research that surrounds Tor. From this research you will focus on something unique. Examples might include how Tor can be used by government agencies in conducting investigations? or can activities conducted using Tor can be tracked by government agencies? or is there growth in the use of Tor by the criminal elements? A topic will surface as you conduct your research. Remember the broad overarching theme is how Tor is used by criminals and law enforcement. You will need to find something unique within that theme.
Do not write a book report on Tor. Develop and argue a focused point. We are not discussing, showing, or presenting anything. Your project is arguing a point that you have develop from your research.
Research question Pointers
* There is a significant amount of information on this case in the Utica Library.
* Choose a topic within the cases research.

* Do not write a book report on the case. This is an academic research project.
* Read through the articles in the Utica Library or on Google Scholar. Identify a topic. Then develop a concise research question.
* Areas of interest might be:
* Google provides numerous reference options, but many of them are not scholarly or academic reviewed resources.
* What are the jurisdictional issues related to the United States government tracking people on TOR?
* What are the uses of TOR for criminals and investigators?
* What technology challenges exist when using TOR to collect evidence?
* What are the laws that govern the crime committed on TOR?
* An example Research Question would be:
“The purpose of the project was to examine if the United States government does not have jurisdictional authority to track hackers utilizing the Tor network or browser” (Example only)
Once you have determined the question argue your point. At a minimum, there should be a minimum of ten (10) citations to support the paper’s argument.
