The iceberg metaphor may be overused but it's the best we've got. The internet we normally access is just the tip, and huge quantities of data are kept below the surface. The Deep web is 500 times larger than the plain old website of Google and Facebook. It's where all secure and authenticated information like banking information, usernames and passwords, transactional data, goes.
The Dark Web is a deep-web sub-set. The most terrifying part of the internet is communication between the thieves, assassins, drug dealers and all other forms of villains and criminals. They are relying on Deep Web anonymity.
So, what if you wanted to see what happens in the dark corridors of the Internet, just out of curiosity? What's the top-end scuba gear and oxygen mask you need for a deep dive? It's simple – you 're just going to install TOR (The Onion Router) and you're going to be able to travel the hidden traffic under the surface in no time. We've created an infographic that explains everything you need to know about how TOR works, how it can be built and used. Whatever it takes to get you.
