    Default Deep Web Search Engines to Explore the Hidden Internet

    From https://thehackernews.com/2016/02/deep-web-search-engine.html

    Deep Web Search Engines to Explore the Hidden Internet



    Do you know: There is a vast section of the Internet which is hidden and not accessible through regular search engines and web browsers.

    This part of the Internet is known as the Deep Web, and it is about 500 times the size of the Web that we know.


    What is DEEP WEB?


    Deep Web
    is referred to the data which are not indexed by any standard search engine such as Google or Yahoo.

    The 'Deep Web' refers to all web pages that search engines cannot find, such as user databases, registration-required web forums, webmail pages, and pages behind paywalls.

    Then, there's the Dark Web or Dark Net – a specific part of that hidden Deep Web.

    Deep Web and Dark Web are the intriguing topics for the Netizens all around. But when you hear the term 'Deep Web' or 'Dark Web,' you usually categorize them into one.

    If yes, then you are wrong.


    What is DARK WEB?


    Dark Web is where you can operate without been tracked, maintaining total anonymity.

    The Dark Web is much smaller than the Deep Web and is made up of all different kinds of websites that sell drugs, weapons and even hire assassins.

    These are hidden networks avoiding their presence on the Surface Web, and its URLs are tailed up with .onion.

    These [websitename].onion domains are not indexed by regular search engines, so you can only access Dark Web with special software -- called 'The Onion Browser,' referred to as TOR.

    TOR is free, and anyone can download it.

    Many of us heard about the Dark Web when the largest online underground marketplace Silk Road was taken down following an investigation by United States federal authorities.

    But, what if, you can still be able to dig the Darknet contents with your regular browsers, without the need of TOR?

    Here's How to Surf & Search the Deep Web without TOR

    Solution: Deep Web Search Engines

    Search engines like Google are incredibly powerful, but they can't crawl and index the vast amount of data that is not hyperlinked or accessed via public DNS services.

    However, there are Deep Web Search Engines that crawl over the TOR network and bring the same result to your regular browser.

    Some of such Dark Web Search Engines are:
    Here are some Deep Web Search Engines:
    These Deep Web search engines talks to the onion service via Tor and relays, resolve the .onion links and then deliver the final output to your regular browser on the ordinary World Wide Web.

    However, there is one consequence of browsing Deep or Dark Web on a regular browser. Working this way will make these .onion search results visible to you, me, and also, for Google.

    Moreover, tracker-less search engines are also popular in the TOR culture – like Disconnect, DDG, IXQuick – which ensures your privacy searches.


    Importance of TOR


    It is worth noting that mere access via TOR is not considered as an illegal practice but can arouse suspicion with the law.

    TOR has long been used by Journalists, Researchers, or Thrill seekers in heavily censored countries in order to hide their web browsing habits and physical location, crawl the Deep Web and exchange information anonymously.

    However, one of the main reasons behind the rise of TOR is NSA's Surveillance Programs.

    After the Assange-Snowden revelations in the past years, public fears about their privacy getting compromised over the Internet.

    The reliability of the Internet had been lost that demanded the Ciphers come into action to thwart the Federal Agency's efforts. So comes the need of TOR.

    With the help of TOR, the web users could roam around the Internet beyond any fear, keeping themselves and their real identities hidden from federal and intelligent agencies.

    This is why TOR is being one of the favorite targets of federal agencies.

    Since Tor has long been a target of the government intelligence agencies, most online users do not feel safe to use Tor anymore.

    To known how easy it is for government agencies to unmask Tor users, you can read these articles:

    Who lurks in the 'Dark Web'?


    According to the recent survey conducted by researchers Daniel Moore and Thomas Rid (in their book Cryptopolitik and the Darknet), it is found that 57% of the Dark Web is occupied by unauthorized contents like Pornography, Illicit Finances, Drug Hub, Weapon Trafficking, counterfeit currency flow and many more.

    The netizens had given the shade of illegalities to Dark Web. This is why today Dark Web is being defined as something that is illegal instead of a 'Pool of Information.'

    However, there are countless reasons to use Dark Web. But, ultimately, it depends on the surfer what to surf?

    Sidelining Darkweb for criminal offenses often gray out the legitimate purposes inside Dark Web.

    In the end, I just want to say:

    Knowledge is Free! Happy Surfing!

    You can find Servers like this

    Quote On September 27th, 2017, UpGuard Director of Cyber Risk Research Chris Vickery discovered an Amazon Web Services S3 cloud storage bucket configured for public access. Set to allow anyone entering the URL to see the exposed bucket’s contents, the repository, located at the AWS subdomain “inscom,” contained 47 viewable files and folders in the main repository, three of which were also downloadable. The subdomain name provides some indication as to the provenance of the data: INSCOM, an intelligence command overseen by both the US Army and the NSA.
    The three downloadable files contained in the bucket confirm the highly sensitive nature of the contents, exposing national security data, some of it explicitly classified.
    The largest file is an Oracle Virtual Appliance (.ova) file titled “ssdev,” which, when loaded into VirtualBox, is revealed to contain a virtual hard drive and Linux-based operating system likely used for receiving Defense Department data from a remote location. While the virtual OS and HD can be browsed in their functional states, most of the data cannot be accessed without connecting to Pentagon systems - an intrusion that malicious actors could have attempted, had they found this bucket.
    However, the properties of files revealed in this hard drive contain areas and technical configurations clearly marked as “Top Secret,” as well as the additional intelligence classification of “NOFORN,” a stipulation which means the data is so sensitive, it cannot even be shared with foreign allies. The hard drive contains six such partitions, varying in size from 1 GB to 69 GB, and contains indications in its metadata that the box was worked on in some capacity by a now-defunct third-party defense contractor named Invertix, a known INSCOM partner. Finally, also exposed within are private keys used for accessing distributed intelligence systems, belonging to Invertix administrators, as well as hashed passwords which, if still valid and cracked, could be used to further access internal systems.
    While the specific purpose of the virtual drive’s partitions are unclear, the file appears to be of use for receiving, transmitting, and handling classified data. A folder within the hard drive reveals a human-configured installation of files for use with Red Disk, a troubled Defense Department cloud intelligence platform partially integrated into the Pentagon’s DCGS-A program.

    nothing surprises me anymore; I believe the more murkier, outlandish, absurd, preposterous, evil (endless list) a concept initially appears the more truth there most probably is behind it-

    I have heard of the Dark web and it is used in films and TV shows more and more...
    But I do not know how it works and am wary about what I click on the web we
    have. Though I will go it eventually no doubt.

    I doubt if many of you watch Marvels Arrow , Felicity Smoak a computer geek goes
    on it regularly to find hidden secrets about whatever and hacks into some agency or
    other most episodes. The point is its probably more known by younger people and
    the IT crowd and is often used by the mainstream and politicians as a fear tool
    against cyber crime...

    I cannot find a clip from Arrow but a old one from.....

    Classic IT crowd Moss & Roy try to set up Jen....

    who is in the web? What web are we in? The mere appearence of any web, in ones own thought, or imagination, is nothing but illusionarry belief that a web exist. The web is within you alone.

    The internet is only a creation of a false sense of all are one.

    Deep, Hidden.or what ever internet is nothing more than an distraction of what you are.

    Once you get it, or as many say awake, you know .

    There is no higher self. No trintity. Just you and the creator of this universe. You are not all one. Each of you are singly you. Which is masuline, and feminine.

    Wht is Knowledge? Is that what you are taught? or what you see to be true?

    I do not want any more search engines, or more proof, to know what i am already aware of.

    Shut it all off and go outside, and all else will come to you. Thank you.

    Awareness of all things, is but a small gimpse of reality.

    The story goes that the US Navy invented TOR. So the military and intelligence agencies know their way around the Deep and Dark web. But the odds of being found are tiny. Scientists hang out on the Deep web. That sounds like where CERN usage is based. Fascinating topic.

    I use TOR but but have found it won't open at the moment despite reinstalling several times. Perhaps somebody is tinkering with the wires and Tor especially as more censorship comes in.

    There's a great YouTube channel that explores the Deep Web and often offers tips on how to do it as well as detailed exlanations on how it works, called Someordinarygamers; the series is called Deep Web Browsing. It's also a pretty good example of what to expect while exploring the deep web, and most importantly some of the hazards one might run across. Over 100 half hour to hour long episodes so far and stll updating every week, so it's enough to keep busy for a while too.

    It's great for people like me who aren't good with computers or aren't quite ready to dive in just yet.

    Considering the Internet was originally what we now call a 'Black Project' - meaning it was not public, or revealed in the public domain for many years, it is not surprising that there are layers and dimensions to it which were not included in the emergence of its public release. We should remember that the roots of the internet are in Military/Academic research, ARPANET had a lot of development, with both the British & American military being involved, along with Stanford University.
    TCP/IP was the original protocol stack which enabled the wide distribution of network linkages, despite those networks not being compatible on a surface level.

    The private ownership of global networks, and the fact that Tim Berners-Lee invented the WWW are mainly responsible for the release of the internet to us, the great public of the world. This is why governments have not been able to impose regulation directly on the development of Internet business.
    So thank goodness for private enterprise in this situation.
    Yes, there are many private networks which are not included in the 'Google Level' of the internet, there is some amazing data out there!

    It is amazing to me that so many people do not understand that the internet was not an anticipated public service, that it was mainly accidental and kind of strange that is became available to the public - and that we can all build and publish widely on it. The gates of freedom were indeed opened with the internet, but most of us still do not know it!

    They* are seeking to regulate, and restrict it since the Geo-Political outcomes of the past 2 years have revealed just how potent it is as the alternative media platform. Mass media has just about been killed off, mainstream media is in retreat.

    I think they will seek to curtail the power of the internet very soon - global awakening is proceeding at too great a pace

    *Them = covert elite political and social entities which guide public policy, the power bloc of our world.
