you’ll know some of the things you can find there. We’ve talked before about illegal activities
happening there, but there is much more to this place. You might find whistleblowers in the dark
web, perhaps fearful of their identity being uncovered. Human rights journalists might also publish
here, with an understanding that their work can’t be traced back to them. Critics of oppressive governments might air
their concerns there, while others just want absolute privacy when talking to people about
their health. Welcome to this episode of the Infographics
Show, How to access the dark web. First let’s give you a 101 on the dark web. Sources differ on how much of the internet
can be seen using a standard browser. In a story, NPR told us that 96 percent of
the Internet is not available through normal browsers. Call it the iceberg theory, which means the
internet we see is just the tip. Other resources tell us it’s more like 90
percent, which is still huge. So, what exactly are we not seeing? First of all, we should understand the difference
between the “Deep Web” and “Darknet” sites. The deep web might not be quite as degenerate
as the dark web. The deep web is simply part of the web that
can’t be accessed through conventional browsers. One expert tell us, “Despite many representations
of a nefarious underground operating out-of-sight, the deep web is mostly benign private databases
and web resources not meant to be accessed by the general public.” Lots of data online isn’t available to our
prying eyes. Companies or banks have private databases,
or some websites might not want to be indexed; they want to remain unsearchable. It’s not really that surprising that most
of the information flowing around the internet is protected. But then we have the dark web, and that’s
a totally different thing. This is a place where one wants absolute anonymity
– not to say people don’t get found, they do. As we said, you might find political dissidents
working there. In some countries you can still lose your
freedom, or life, for criticizing a leader or ruler. How does it work? How do people get this anonymity they require? Well, the dark net both incorporates encryption
and also uses special privacy browsers. The best known is Tor, which is sometimes
called, “The Onion Router.” It is free software that directs traffic through
a massive network
