If you’re into computer security at all you may have heard of terms like “Deep Web” and “Dark Web”. The terms can be confusing so here are the basics:
- The Internet is where everyone has access to and where it’s easy to find things because they’re indexed by search engines.
- The Deep Web is the part of the Internet that isn’t necessarily malicious, but is just too obscure to be indexed due to the sheer size of the web.
- The Dark Web is the part of the non-indexed part of the Internet (the Deep Web) that is used by those who don’t want to be found for whatever reason. This could be for seedy, illegal purposes or it could be a matter of privacy.
