If you’re not familiar with what the Dark Web is, it’s a part of the web that provides anonymous access to the Internet, specializing on allowing anonymous hosting of websites.  A place where identities and locations of its users stay anonymous and cannot be tracked due to the layered encryption system.  Due to its complexity and high level of encryption, websites are not able to track location of their users as well as the users are not able to get this information about the host. Thus, allowing users to talk, blog, and share files confidentially which makes it an ideal place illegal activities such as fraud, hacking, terrorism forums, and media exchange. (source Wikipedia)
