The dark web is an important part of the Internet system, allowing websites to be published and information published without the need to disclose the publisher’s identity or location. The dark web can be accessed through certain services, such as Tor. Many use Tor and similar services, such as a way to provide freedom of expression, association, access to information, and the right to privacy.

Many Internet users use encryption, e.g. virtual private networks (VPNs); In order to maintain the privacy of Internet activities. Virtual Private Internet (VPN) links typically adhere to traditional standards of behavior for Internet routing, for two reasons:

  1.  To determine the path of a user's computer end link to a server that hosts the content the user wants to access. 

  2. Bidirectional transmission of requests, and response traffic along this path. It is subject to data traffic analysis, a control technique that can reveal data sources, destination and transmission times for a third party.

Tor Torres networks: are commonly used solutions; To preserve anonymity and privacy and prevent the analysis of transmitted data.

 Who are Tor users? 

Primarily journalists, or users of the web in general who do not want their behavior or interests tracked by third parties. Tor serves many good purposes, but also attracts Dark Web users who want to keep their activities or markets secret and untraceable.

Unfortunately, illegal acts are common on these networks, as there is no control or tracking during their use.

Unlike VPNs, Tor networks use virtual tunnels, so they don't connect customers directly to servers, where Tor customers create circuits through the tor network's migration points.

 Can I visit the dark web? 

You may want to use Tor to take advantage of some dark web services, and although you may benefit from the anonymity feature on the dark web, this won't be a reason to engage in illegal activities.
