The Dark Web: What Is It and How to Access It

Post by bdahm on Fri Oct 28, 2016 12:28 pm

You may have heard about this mysterious place on the Internet called the ‘Deep Web’. Interest in the deep web and dark web has been on the rise following a few high profile data leaks, a growing interest in online privacy, references in mainstream media, or the widely publicized FBI investigation into online marketplace Silk Road that exposed the extent of online drug trafficking.

But what is exactly the deep web? Well it’s not actually a 'place' but rather anywhere other than the visible web that is crawled, indexed and accessed through links fetched by search engines like Google. The deep web is actually several times bigger than the indexed web, and it encompasses a lot more than the illegal or otherwise questionable activities that it is often associated with -- though there's certainly a lot of that going on, too. Let's start by clearing up some of the confusion among the different terms that tend to be thrown around while discussing the Internet's underground.
