In de OUCH nieuwsbrief van SANS is dit keer veel aandacht voor ‘the Dark Web’. Je leest over wat het is, wie er komen er wat je er zelf mee/tegen kunt doen. De nieuwsbrief is zoals altijd in het Engels.
You may have heard the term “Dark Web” used by others or in the media and wondered “what is the Dark Web?” or “should I be doing anything about it?”. Today we explain what the Dark Web is and what it means to you.
What Is It?
The Dark Web consists of systems on the Internet designed for communicating or sharing information securely and anonymously. There is no single “Dark Web”; it is not something like Facebook where it’s run by a single organization. Instead, the Dark Web is collections of different systems and networks managed by different people used for a variety of purposes. These systems are still connected to and are part of the Internet; however, you will generally not find them using your normal search engines. You often also need special software on your computer to find or access them. One example is the Tor Project. To access this Dark Web, you download and install the Tor Browser. When you connect to web servers using the Tor Browser, your encrypted traffic travels through other computers also using Tor. As it hops through these computers, the source IP address is changing— meaning that when you get to the web site, your online activity is anonymized. Other examples of Dark Webs include Zeronet, Freenet, and I2P.Verder lezen bij de bron
