Just beneath the very busy, public Web is a shadowy realm largely untouched by search engines. This is the dark net—a hidden place where individuals and groups seek anonymity. It provides sanctuary for people living under authoritarian regimes, consumers tired of being treated as digital marketing assets, and cyber criminals looking to infiltrate corporate networks undetected.
In this O’Reilly report, authors Greg Fell and Mike Barlow explore both the benign and malevolent activities of the dark net (and the dark Web). For people who want to control their digital identities, new email servers and browsers ensure privacy. But for criminals, the dark net is an ideal place to steal and store vital information with impunity.
Learn about the surprising origin of the dark net, and find out how you can patrol this not-so-secret domain to detect and thwart intruders.
