It seems Tor is also a haven for whistleblowers and hackers, because they believe Tor is a completely anonymous, private, and secure way to access the Internet without anyone being able to monitor their activities, but It’s not quite that simple. Tor isn’t the perfect anonymity and privacy solution. It has several important limitations and risks. when using Tor, user network traffic routed through Tor’s network and other several randomly selected relays before exiting the Tor network. The last Tor node, where the traffic leaves the Tor network and enters the open Internet, can be monitored.

It is unfortunate that Tor has a negative connotation surrounding it due to the fact that numerous elicit activities are conducted on it even though it is only a subset of Tor. And what is ironic about Tor is that this was developed by the US Navy and most people now associate it with buying drugs and guns online. Curious as to what the inventor of Tor thinks about what has become of it. It is surprising how these drug markets are able to operate continually and aren't shut down via other means such as flagging these transactions in the mail. The use of Bitcoins probably helps make it harder to shut down these types of operations and transactions.

I'm amazed about the fact the TOR network still up and running after agencies and hackers closely monitor the traffic looking for possible targets. This video gives you the two version about the deep web, not everything that is there is bad/evil. The Onion Router has been a great way for exercising freedom of speech/press/information especially for countries with Internet censorship .

Awesome video... - This video is quite intriguing. I knew of the DeepNet, however, I was not aware how easily it can be accessed. While the Deep Net can be interperted as a gateway to criminal activity, it can also be used as a tool for law enforcement, students, and the like. If one is not satisfied with the “surface” results that Google, or another search engine, is returning, the Deep Web is where one needs to go. Even for law enforcement officials, the Deep Web can help find suspect's messages and communication, occurring on outlets such as forums. Furthermore, from an educational perspective, the deep web can provide you with detailed, topic-specific research from sources such as conference reports, white papers, proprietary journals, databases, and non-patented literature.

It's not hard to believe the vast amount of illegal or questionable activity and transactions that occur on the Dark Web. Money goes where it is wanted. With the advent of digital currency and complete, at least in theory, anonymity provided by Tor, the goods, services and activities that are banned or legislated as illegal by nation state governments are now available to those that seek it out. The struggle between law enforcement activity and the desire of individuals to satisfy their wishes, coupled with the profits that can be made by criminals almost certainly guarantees that the Dark Web will continue satisfy those desires. The criminals are better funded and can operate nimbly, while the police and governments are subject to the bureaucracy of treaties and legal constraints. International governments have not developed the tools, processes and agreements to move at the speed and flexibility of the Internet. Furthermore with the availability of various "bullet proof" hosting providers protected by corrupt officials or governments, cybercrime will, for the foreseeable future be at least one step behind most of the criminal elements hiding within the anonymous Dark Web.
