Many have heard of the “Dark Web”. But what it really is
Browsing it is illegal
They are overlapping networks that use the Internet but require specific software, configurations or permissions to access them. Through the dark web, private computer networks can communicate and conduct business anonymously without disclosing identifying information. But let’s find out more. Definition of the dark web
The dark web is a part of the internet that is not indexed by search engines. Researchers Daniel Moore and Thomas Rid of King’s College London in 2015 classified the content of 2,723 sites and found that 57% harbor illicit material. You can buy credit card numbers, all sorts of drugs, guns, fake money, stolen subscription credentials, hacked Netflix accounts, and software that helps you break into other people’s computers. You can hire hackers to attack computers for you. You can buy usernames and passwords. But not everything is illegal, the dark web also has a legitimate side. For example, you can join a chess club or BlackBook, a social network described as “the Facebook of Tor”. Deep web vs. dark web: what’s the difference
The terms “deep web” and “dark web” are sometimes used interchangeably, but they are not the same. The deep web refers to anything on the internet that is not indexed and, therefore, accessible through a search engine like Google. The deep web content includes everything that requires login credentials.
Estimates place the size of the deep web between 96% and 99% of the internet. Only a small part of the internet is accessible through a standard web browser, generally known as a “clear web”. The dark web is a subset of the deep web that is intentionally hidden, requiring a specific browser – Tor – to access. Nobody really knows the size of the dark web, but most estimates place it at around 5% of the total internet. Again, not all of the dark web is used for illicit purposes despite its ominous name. How to surf the dark web
Access to the dark web requires the use of an anonymous browser called Tor. The Tor browser routes your web page requests through a series of proxy servers operated by thousands of volunteers around the world, making your IP address unidentifiable and untraceable. Tor works like magic, but the result is an experience that is like the dark web itself: unpredictable, unreliable and insanely slow. Obscure websites look pretty much like any other site, but there are important differences. One is the structure of names. Instead of ending up in .com or .it, obscure websites end up in .onion. This is “a special-use top-level domain suffix designating a hidden anonymous service reachable via the Tor network,” according to Wikipedia. The Dark Web isn’t all illegal
We don’t want to leave you with the impression that everything on the dark web is nefarious or illegal. The Tor network started out as an anonymous communication channel, and it still serves a valuable purpose in helping people communicate in environments that are hostile to free speech. A lot of people use it in countries where there is wiretapping or where internet access is criminalized. There is also material such as links to full-text editions of hard-to-find books, collections of political news from mainstream websites, and secret guides to famous places. Of course, anonymity has a dark side, as criminals and malicious hackers also prefer to operate in the shadows. Ultimately, simply browsing these spaces is not illegal, but it can be a problem. News stories that frighten
In Rome, in these hours, a 40-year-old was arrested who was looking for a hitman on the dark web to scare his ex-girlfriend. Investigators from the Postal and Communications Police Service, the Flying Squad and the Rome Postal Police were able to promptly identify and stop the instigator of this serious crime of gender-based violence. Something that seems to belong to a thriller book but belongs to reality. An anonymous account asked an ‘intermediary’ to hire a ‘hit man’, so that a woman in Italy was scarred with acid and confined to a wheelchair , and for this service she had already performed the first some payments in Bitcoin . Fortunately, today, everything was blocked.
