What is the Darknet?
The darknet is a network, built on top of the internet, that is purposefully hidden, meaning it has been designed specifically for anonymity. Unlike the deep web, the darknet is only accessible with special tools and software – browsers and other protocol beyond direct links or credentials. You cannot access the darknet by simply typing a dark web address into your web browser.
The darknet contains a plethora of sensitive information about individuals and organizations, such as secure credentials, personal information, intellectual property, stolen credit cards or counterfeit documents. Cybercriminals typically turn to the darknet for many types of compromised information, and can include identity thieves, counterfeiters, drug and human traffickers, blackhat hackers, gamblers of terrorists. Examples of darknets include Tor, or The Onion Router, I2P, or the Invisible Internet Project, Freenet or DN42.
Hitachi Systems Security has teamed up with darknet intelligence expert DarkOwl to automatically, anonymously and continuously collect, index and rank actional data from the darknet 24/7/365. DarkOwl provides the world’s largest commercially available database of DARKINT™ (darknet, deep web and high-risk surface websites) content. Short for darknet intelligence, DARKINT encompasses actionable data from the darknet and other interconnected sources, including Tor, IRC channels, hacker forums, FTP servers, paste sites, high-risk surface internet and more.
DarkOwl Vision, a SaaS platform that is fully integrated into our proprietary ArkAngel platform, indexes more useful darknet data in one hour than an analyst in one month. All content in the DarkOwl Vision database is collected by DarkOwl Vision crawlers. Crawling activities are automated and continuous 24/7/365, ingesting and indexing millions of “targets” daily in 47 languages. Targets can include HTTP, FTP, IRC protocols over TOR, I2P, and the surface Internet. Additionally, we can set parameters to collect data from a particular target on a particular frequency (as often as every minute) or timeframe. Together, ArkAngel and DarkOwl Vision correlate external threats from the darknet with current activities in your environment to identify potential indicators of compromise and facilitate proactive threat hunting.
