This was very interesting to watch...this new documentary goes into allot of avenues...from journalists and activists being spied on and intimidated thru the internet...Also talks about bit coin...

But most interesting is the existence of the "dark web" a hidden network where anything goes, and apparently a new black market is growing, trafficking in drugs, animals, and even humans.

What most people don't think about is that the internet as we know it exists as physical wires, cables, and connection points...its these points that are monitored, and this is how a whole nations internet traffic could be exposed...This is what Snowden talked about!

The privacy risks of this day and age are staggering...



Thoughts?

I go "deep" occasionally, but to be honest there is nothing to really do there, unless one is looking to break the law, which I'm not. I just like to delve into the depravity of mankind, you know, sort of like a bonding experience with my fellow man. You also have to know what you're doing to a larger extent than the regular web, and you have to know where you're going. There is probably a lot of stuff there that I don't know about, because I don't know where to go. I've heard that the dark web is larger than the regular web, but I don't know if that is true. I haven't seen as much anyway. So the average person has nothing to gain from utilizing this portion of the web, and it is much more of a pain to gain access to, considering you have to download and use the onion router, and I go even farther than that, using a virtual private network, and it always seems to go slower than I am accustomed to. The last time I was poking around there was a few months ago. I am all for the ability of people to be able to circumvent government monitoring, even if those people are breaking the law. Not everything that utilizes privacy is against the law however, and just because one uses the dark web does not mean they are doing something illegal. I'm sure the government would shut it down if it was possible and legal.

There's nothing on the dark web you can't get on a street corner in the Us if you know the right people.

Good program, thanks for posting, OP!

It never ceases to amaze me that the US government wants to stop drug trafficking on line, when they are the ones both making sure that drug prices stay ridiculously high, and are making the most money off drugs themselves.

And, they're the real terrorists on this planet. Everyone else are rank amateurs comparatively.

It's true signal and the worst part is everyone who supports this policy refuses to look at the data. Their egos won't allow it. They don't even want to know the truth they just want to keep the machine going.

The really strange thing is the dark web is 90% companies running there operations.

All wind turbines in the US are controlled over the Dark web.
ATM data goes over the dark webs.

The DOD runs many dark web links between military bases.

The dark web is those sites that have no search engine addresses.

It should be noted that if you get curious about the darkweb /deepnet only go there if you are extremely well versed in computer security and self-protection ( from hackers and from prying governmental eyes ). It is no place to wander into unless you are well prepared to be there.

The good stuff is so hard to find ( I am not talking about porn or mail order drugs or hitmen - I am talking about leaked documents and things like that ) that one almost has to accidentally happen upon it and then dig for hours or days to score something worthwhile.

The entire time at risk for any number of attacks, exploits, traps, deceptions etc. One wrong click and you could find yourself and your IP on an FBI list.

As intriguing as it is, be careful should curiousity get the best of you. And know the first big secret - the front door is a trap.

The Deep (dark) Web is already heavily monitored - despite TOR users' impression that it is not.
A late friend of mine took me on a tour once. Nothing special: snuff films, cheese pizza, hitmen for hire, terrorist organisations, loadsa drugs.
You have no business there unless you are a degenerate. There really is nothing mysterious about it.

That is true of what one might call the "top layer" but there are layers beneath that. A lot of edu sites have servers that are dark ( blocked from traditional search engines - which is technically what makes sites "dark" ) - there are also open doors to gov sites there. But without an ability to search for the doors, one has to either hunt and peck until they find one, or know somebody who already has the right URL to visit.

For what? All it is, is a bunch of URL's that aren't listed in search engines. Could be any number of things. I think you are getting thrown off by the name. It's not an actual "dark net" per say, it's more of parts of the "net" that are "dark," ie not meant to be found by normal traffic.

I mean if you are really dumb enough to buy sex slaves and drugs off the internet I have no sympathy for you. If you want to try and hack into government sites go for it lol

I take that back. Apparently there are p2p services that are called darknets. I wonder if that's what all the fuss is about?

O yes, enough thoughts...

I understand that some people need to be protected from themselves but the majority of adult humanbeings deserve their privacy. We do not need a government or some institution lurking over our shoulder all the time.

If someone wants to order drugs let him have it, I think there is no need to spend billions of community money fighting drugs criminals. Such actions will increase criminality and will cost the taks payer to much plenty.

Sure there is other crime which can be prevented by having government control over everyones e-mails and other internet activity but if peiople want to feel and be free that road needs to be closed. Governments must find other ways to investigate crimes than having unconditional and complete access to our internet activity.

And.. now I' am curious what there is to see and find on that daark neet.

That search should put you on someone's list.

Lol are you alright? Nowhere do I say the dark web is new, I do however present a NEW documentary released last month. Perhaps reading the op would help before posting.
