The Dark Web is a part of Deep Web. A dark net is a routed allocation of IP address space that is not noticeable by any usual means. Most of the activities in DARK WEB is illicit. Some of them are drug trafficking, controlled substance marketplaces, armories selling almost all kinds of weapons, child pornography unauthorized leaks of sensitive information, credit card fraud identity theft and many illegal and ruthless criminal activities. The purpose is to hide not only the communications themselves but also the information being exchanged. People join with the expectation of being able to share information with little risk of noticing. The complex routing system makes it difficult to trace communication paths.
The term Deep Web is used to refer to both a single private network and the collective portion of Internet address space that has been configured in that manner. It is concealed under a separate, but public layer of the usual internet. The page may exist on the public internet, but if you don’t know the exact URL, you will never find it. The DARK WEB relies on dark net or networks where connections are established between trusted parties. Popular Dark Web systems include TOR (Onion router), I2P, Freenet, or the Invisible Internet. Such networks are typically decentralized, routing traffic through a wide-spread system of servers, which are often provided by volunteers. Dark net can only be accessed with specific software, configurations, or authorization, often using non-standard communications protocols and ports. Two usual dark net types are friend-to-friend networks and privacy networks such as Tor. The currency of Deep Internet is Bit coin. What are they? How are the valued? Wait for my next post.
