Montilla K32 - DEEP WEB

  1. 1.  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
  2. 2.  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
  3. 3.  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
  4. 4.  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
  5. 5.  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)
  6. 6.  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
  7. 7.  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
