Subject description: an important asset to cybercriminal toolkits
 

SSL/TLS certificates are a valuable item in the cybercrime system, and they are usually used by threat actors for different activities such as eavesdropping on traffic, spoofing websites, setting up fraudulent ecommerce sites and stealing data.

The study presents evidence that confirms the existence of several sources offering SSL/TLS certificates, especially the presence of sellers that promise to issue certificates for U.K. and U.S. companies for less than $2,000.

The research confirms the uncontrolled sale of SSL/TLS certificates on the dark web, which is used in by hackers and fraudsters in order to avoid detection and organize more sophisticated attacks.

There is even a case of a seller offering certificates from well-respected authorities for $2,000 in a bundle with fake documentation which allows the attackers to present themselves as trusted U.K. or U.S. companies.
