Hands-On Dark Web Analysis

By: Sion Retzkin

Overview of this book

The overall world wide web is divided into three main areas - the Surface Web, the Deep Web, and the Dark Web. The Deep Web and Dark Web are the two areas which are not accessible through standard search engines or browsers. It becomes extremely important for security professionals to have control over these areas to analyze the security of your organization. This book will initially introduce you to the concept of the Deep Web and the Dark Web and their significance in the security sector. Then we will deep dive into installing operating systems and Tor Browser for privacy, security and anonymity while accessing them. During the course of the book, we will also share some best practices which will be useful in using the tools for best effect. By the end of this book, you will have hands-on experience working with the Deep Web and the Dark Web for security analysis

About Packt


In this book, we discussed how to access the Dark Web, the who, and the why.

You've seen that it's used for the best of reasons, and the worst...

As with all technology, it's neither good nor evil; it's how the technology is used that makes the difference.

The Dark Web is very similar to the Surface Web. The main difference is the anonymity and privacy, which are more pronounced on the Dark Web.

In this chapter, I tried to show you that the Dark Web can be very beneficial, and that law enforcement is working diligently to protect us, both off and on the Dark Web.

I hope that you see, as I do, the advantages of the Dark Web, rather than its dangers or disadvantages.

Use it, but on your own terms. Use it safely, use it wisely, and ultimately, it should benefit you.

Maybe renaming it to something less ominous might change the perception most people have of it, but as Shakespeare wrote, What's in a name?
