You’ve probably heard of the terms dark web and Tor mentioned in the media, but accessing them isn’t as risky as it may sound. In fact, it’s easy to get it up and running.
The dark web is a collection of pages that aren’t indexed by search engine like Google. It’s the part of the internet where data and content that would otherwise be private is stored. Email inboxes and Google Drive folders are stored on the deep web. They’re not visible to the public when using a standard browser.
There are also many websites on the dark web that are used for legitimate functions. SecureDrop, for example, is a dark-web site that allows anonymously submitting sensitive information by whistleblowers. There are other websites that assist people in buying and sell stolen credentials, like credit card numbers, passwords and social security numbers. These sites are often referred to “marketplaces” and some of the most well-known examples are Silk Road and AlphaBay, but there are lots of others that have come and gone.
The key to accessing the dark web is a system called Tor that routes your connection through a set of volunteer servers that are located all over the world. This makes it hard for anyone to track you. Tor is named so because the data it encrypts goes through a number of layers similar to the onion layering on a pizza, which helps protect your anonymity.
