  • The Deep Web is often referred to as “The Silk Road”, named after the ancient trade routes that ran all across Eurasia.References:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wMgqTWdk3tw
  • An analogy that is typically used to describe the surface web and the deep web is an iceberg – where the surface web is the tip of the iceberg or the portion that is clearly and easily visible, and the deep web is the LARGER portion of the iceberg underwater that is not visible to most internet users.References:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wMgqTWdk3tw
  • Not all of the information found in the Deep Web is illegal or illicit. The Deep Web also contains massive archives of old documents of large corporations that is of no use to them anymore and that the general public doesn’t care about.References:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wMgqTWdk3tw

  •  The Deep Web consists of Web content that is not part of the surface web  It contains pages that are not and cannot be indexed by standard search engines (Google, Yahoo!, Bing, etc.)  Network of anonymous users that make use of their anonymity to conduct business and store content that is either illegal or of no interest to majority of internet users  Special software (TOR, Freenet, etc.) is required in order for internet users to gain access to and make use of the deep web
  •  Public information on the Deep Web is currently 400 to 550 times larger than the commonly defined World Wide Web  The Deep Web contains 7,500 terabytes of information compared to 19 terabytes of information in the surface web  Contains nearly 550 billion individual documents compared to 1 billion documents in the surface web  Deep Web currently has more than 200,000 websites  The Deep Web is currently the largest growing category of new information on the Internet
  •  Total quality content of the Deep Web is 1,000 to 2,000 times greater than that of the surface web  Deep Web content is highly relevant to every information need and market  More than half of the Deep Web content resides in topic-specific databases  95% of the Deep Web is publicly accessible information that is not subject to any fees or subscriptions  Deep Web has a large community of hackers, scientists, drug dealers, assassins, perverts, terrorists, kidnappers, data miners, and others
  •  The Deep Web makes E-Commerce a possibility for individuals and businesses that engage in illegal activity, much in the same way the legit businesses are making use of E-Commerce  E-Commerce is practiced by the following individuals - murderers/hit men - drug dealers - rapists/child molesters - spies - ammunitions/weapons dealers - terrorists
  •  The Deep Web will effectively put E-Commerce in a negative light  Focus will be placed on the disadvantages of technology instead of the benefits  Will raise issues of legitimacy in E-Commerce  Could potentially force the government and other monitoring bodies to violate privacy rights of legitimate E-commerce users for the sake of security (passwords, private information, confidential financial data/records/transactions will be accessed)
  •  The Deep Web will continue to grow and expand in the next 2 years, and long after  Governments won’t be able to do anything significant to control it  The Deep Web will continue to gain more power and popularity amongst ECommerce practitioners
  •  Developments in advanced technology will improve tracking on the dark net, but anonymity will prove to be users’ greatest asset  Struggling businesses will consider moving to the deep web to carry out more unrestricted and unmonitored operations that will increase revenue  Occasional successful busts of illegal activity in the Deep Web
