In this paper we first provide a brief review of the Dark Web project of the University of Arizona Artificial Intelligence Lab. We then report our research design and case study that aim to identify the geolocation of the countries, cities, and ISPs that host selected international Jihadist web sites. We provide an overview of key relevant Internet functionality and architecture and present techniques for exploiting networking technologies for locating servers and resources. Significant findings from our case study and suggestion for future research are also presented.
