Using TOR and Browsing The Deep Web #1
Using TOR and Browsing The Deep Web
What Is TOR?

TOR stands for The Onion Router. It is a network of computers set up to route the connection through each other in order to anonymize the connection. Everything is encrypted and decrypted between each computer. Those computers are referred to as nodes.
There are also hidden websites accessible only through TOR. The links end in .onion and are usually a randomized string of numbers and letters.


1. Download the browser bundle from

2. Extract it to a folder. I have it in a folder on my desktop.

3. Open up the folder and open the file "Start TOR Browser.exe"
This will open up a small window which will connect you to the TOR network.
Once you are connected it will open the TOR Browser which is basically a modified version of Firefox..

What Now?

Now for the fun stuff. Here I shall give you a list of links. Browse as you wish and explore the Dark Web. There are many interesting things to be found involving privacy, bitcoin, hacking, history, rebellion, drugs, weapons, ebooks and various other things.

ion's Hidden Wiki (Traditional wiki after Matt's went down) - The original Hidden Wiki is back up! It's a little outdated but it still contains all of it's misc. pages: http://kpvz7ki2v5agwt35.onion/wiki/index.php/Main_Page

RE: Using TOR and Browsing The Deep Web #2
Nice guide, I will add it to may basic tutorial about anonymity.


RE: Using TOR and Browsing The Deep Web #3
There's another tutorial on this already:

But thanks for posting this with eBooks, you're experienced with the deepweb I see. we've spoken before about deepweb and I know you have loads of knowledge about this.

Great tutorial.

RE: Using TOR and Browsing The Deep Web #4
Yeah. Want anything from it or about Im your guy Smile
Going to check out i2p next once I'm finished going through the last I have of TOR although I might get a closed shell server to access the deeper web.

EDIT: NVM Closed Shell network is a hoax.


RE: Using TOR and Browsing The Deep Web #5
Where's the CP links!

I want the link for pedochan.

You have a long way to go if you think that

a) A closed shell network exists. The infamous iceberg image is full of shit.

b) Anyone is going to give you access to their private servers of information, since that's all there is "deeper" than hidden webs.


RE: Using TOR and Browsing The Deep Web #7
Nice tut mate - good job.


RE: Using TOR and Browsing The Deep Web #8
Nice tutorial bro, keep it up!

Nah man I looked into it and found it was fake... I'm still looking through site mirrors of many dead sites and getting new links to some blogs and .pdfs and other stuff. After that though I'll be pretty much done on TOR.


RE: Using TOR and Browsing The Deep Web #10
Awesome list on the bottom thanks for sharing Biggrin
