Let’s take a journey into what experts are calling “The Deep Web”. In this episode, I will show you what that term means, and how to get there, and I give a bit of a description of what you might find.
Catch us on the next segment of “The Hidden Internet”, where we will be exploring an obscure protocol, seldom used but by the most elite by the name of “Gopher”.
Hello everyone! Today we have your best interests in mind with your anonymity and decided to do a tutorial about a nifty little instant messenger client that we found called TORchat. TORchat does exactly what it sounds like it does, by sending all of your chat traffic through the TOR network for extra anonymity. Be sure to take the normal precautions when running TOR, and be sure to transmit your terrorist blueprints by carrier pigeon, as always.
In a previous article, we spoke briefly about TOR and I mentioned briefly that there were some risks. This got me thinking, and I thought I’d just talk a little bit about TOR. This is not a cover-all guide, or tutorial, but it should explain things in an easy to digest form to help you understand it without getting too technical.
It is my opinion that governing bodies and law enforcement have shown an interest in deep web activity, with statistics indicating an increase in law-enforcement-operated-exit-nodes. Exit snooping in this sense, is unfortunate, as it derides the reputation of the network, but it does have positive side effects, as indicated by the members of the hacker collective Anonymous who previously aided in the disruption of child pornography activities on the TOR network.
I have only broadly discussed this topic, but for the scope of this blog, I believe this is enough, and if you wish to know more, you probably already know where to find that info. Good luck on your search.
Many people don’t want to mess with the configuration of even the simplest forms of TOR such as TORbrowser, so there is Tor2Web, which allows you to just replace the .onion on the end with .tor2web.org and voila! secret web at your fingertips with no installs!
