When we hear the word Dark Web, we immediately associate it with something illegal. But what is a Dark web and how it works?
To understand it, we need to start from the surface.
Surface web is the visible web. It primarily consists of static web pages which can be indexed by common search engines like Google, Yahoo, and Bing etc. So how this works? Basically, the search engines crawl and index various links present in the web application while searching for contents. The retrieved information is mostly present in the form of HTML files. But this searching technique misses a lot of contents where a web page uses dynamic web pages and database for their data. To get this information, we need to dig a bit deeper.
