The World Beyond Tor: Discovering Uncharted Corners of the Darknet

All talk of the dark web or dark web tends to revolve around the Tor network or most commonly known as the Tor browser, data with major data leaks, password dumps and exposure to dark web markets along with hacked email and databases. While the dark web isn't just limited to all of this and a lot more to explore beyond the Thor browser. The dark web is actually made up of several networks dedicated to specific underground activities. Reports from Europol and high-profile showdowns from the Tor browser network pointed to the dark side of the dark web, although in reality this is not always the case, given the totality of the dark web.

The dark web is a complex, multi-layered environment that triggers equally complex interactions involving capitalism, free speech, and potential illegal or criminal activity. It is also home to what might be considered a hobby of using anonymous chess on the I2P network of puzzle and art installments, the underground market offerings for sandbags or PET bricks, and John Wayne's fan sites. The so-called dark web dark networks are composed of active users from all over the world, and in addition to finding hackers for hire; you can also find legitimate courses from technologists that help analyze cyber threats. Each of the darknet mechanisms was created with different intentions and ideas by groping the mind, with developers who have different goals for using the web. While one is popular with hacktivists, another is preferred by cybercriminals looking for profit, and another is for marginalized groups and cryptocurrency enthusiasts. New dark web frameworks are emerging and will continue to emerge into the distant future, making the dark web a wider space to explore.

In this article, we will look at some of the mechanisms that exist at the time of writing and what the activities within each framework say about the different motivations of their users, offering a more complete and realistic understanding of the ecology of the dark web.

Tor Browser - the stated goals of the Tor browser are to protect user privacy and protect users from the network of surveillance and traffic analysis, while another last goal has been added to the previous one, which should bring wider access for anonymous web browsing by improving the user experience … This is not what you see as the main target for the darknet other than the Tor browser and OpenBazaar. Thor gets a lot of media attention for terrorism, but that's not necessarily any meaningful perception.

Frinet - Frinet is a peer-to-peer (P2P) platform for censorship-resistant communications and publishing, and focuses mainly on promoting free speech for censorship, copyright, and parterre. Freenet is driven by ideology, not financial motives, and has a number of social platforms and chat systems. Its users tend to lean towards small and unobtrusive governments, and it is most popular with crypto activists. On this darknet, we didn't find anything for sale, according to research, most likely because its users are giving away useful information. It is home to hacked documents, including leaked confidential negotiation TTIP documents; Diebold internal emails about how their voting machines are flawed; pre-recorded ghost exploit code as well; and information or document of landfills that are public. To date, he has resisted any outside takedown attempts.

The I2P project is a popular darknet environment for several self-proclaimed groups Anonymous and others described by hacktivists. Indeed, its stated mission is that it is designed to protect communications from dark net surveillance and control by third parties such as internet service providers and is commonly used by many people who care about their privacy: activists, oppressed peoples, journalists and whistleblowers, along with the average person. Content is primarily in Russian, Chinese and English, as well as an archive of past classes for hacktivists that cover hacking and various other methods. Some of the talks still have speaker names on them, which includes a course on an advanced web hacking application given by a given researcher from a top technology firm. This darknet framework also includes a chat portal, access to a DDoS attack tool and a web vulnerability scanner application.

OpenBazaar - OpenBazaar is one of the latest dark frameworks to offer a feeless, peer-to-peer (P2P) platform that uses cryptocurrencies to transact. There are some illegal offerings that include drugs, hacker utilities, books and services, stolen streaming media accounts, and Navalny on social networks.
