The Deep Web, the Dark Web, the Dark Net.
We've all heard about them, if it's from a movie, TV show, the news, or even a friend or a neighbor. Most people view them as the same thing, which is as a depraved and illegal area on the internet, where sex-traffickers, drug dealers, weapons dealers, and others lurk in wait for innocent users.
The truth is very far from this. In this book, we'll understand what the Deep Web, the Dark Web, and the Dark Net are, how to access them safely and securely, who uses them and, ultimately, how we can use them for beneficial and good uses, rather than what the media publishes about them.

- The origin of the internet
- The Deep Web
- The Dark Web
