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

Accessing the Dark Web with Qubes

To launch Tor Browser, run the following:

  1. Qubes App Launcher (blue/grey "Q") | Domain: anon-whonix | Privacy Browser
  2. Now you can surf the Dark Web with Tor Browser, anonymously and privately, using Qubes OS (with a little help from Whonix), by entering the URLs of .onion sites into the browser address bar, as you would in a standard browser.


Always remember, do NOT provide your real details on the Dark Web: not your name, address, emails, and definitely not your credit card details.

Even though we're discussing how to access the Dark Web in a more secure and private manner, remember the cardinal rule: do not trust software! They all have inherent vulnerabilities and can be exploited by attackers. Using security, privacy, and anonymity-focused operating systems helps minimize the risk, but it's never enough.

Be careful.
