UK Firm Develops Search Engine For Dark Web




Digital Shadows claims its search engine is the most comprehensive to date - but why develop it in the first place?

The dark net and the deep web are sometimes called the parts of the internet that you cannot Google. But a British cyber security firm has developed its own search engine for both, as well as for IRC (basically, chatrooms).

Alistair Paterson, CEO of Digital Shadows, demos the tech in the corner room of his company’s 42nd-floor office in Canary Wharf. “Basically, it’s a Google for Tor,” he explains.

There are similar efforts. DARPA, the experimental labs of the US Department of Defence, is developing something called Memex and there is Flashpoint, which focuses on extremism on the dark web. There is also Grams, which indexes dark web marketplaces.

But Mr Paterson says his search engine is the most comprehensive to date. He types in 'money laundering' and it instantly returns 2,603 results, displayed just like a Google page except each page also gets a thumbnail screenshot alongside.

I hadn't even heard of the term until a convo with my daughter about an hour ago and then you post this link? She heard it from a guy having a lesson on the dark web at police training school? :shrug:

We have our very own part of the dark web on here as far as I know. As you have to register to view the 'Bollocks' section then it won't show up in search engines.
