Child pornography NO1 on the Tor Anonymous Tour Network


The six-month study sought to register hidden services for the so-called "dark network" and find out which are the most popular. The result was to uncover many illegal drug trafficking websites, but mostly child pornography websites. Unfortunately, research has shown that it is extremely difficult to locate the people behind these pages.tor project

The Tor (The Onion Router) this is an incognito network that allows people to access the web without revealing their traces, which encourages all kinds of illegal activity.

According to Dr Gareth Owen of the University of Portsmouth and colleagues, trafficking in Tor is an average of 1,5% of the most general daily traffic on the internet, while within it 80,000 was found to be a forbidden site.

"Most of the prohibited services have been visited only once because they are not long-lasting," Owen argued at the revelation of his research at the 31 Hanover Communication Conference in Hanover.

The survey also revealed that most of the hidden services concerned the sale of illicit substances, and black market pages, e-mail services, and those dealing with the virtual currency Bitcoin were also found.

As far as child violence is concerned, Owen argued that despite the fact that Tor does not have many specific photos, the users who visit them are driven to other identical content. It's no wonder that the percentage of traffic to such sites is 75%!

"We can not know what percentage of people and machines. We just can not know, "he said

Roger Dingdelaine, one of the creators of Tor, pointed out that the research methodology of this research is more suitable for networks that include websites with a long lifespan. So it turned out to be a difficult case to record in Tor the history of visitors' movements.

"Without knowing how many websites were searched and then disappeared, it is impossible to know the percentage of violence websites.

"There are important uses for hidden services, such as when human rights activists use it to gain access to Facebook or anonymous blogs. Uses for hidden services are new and have great potential, "he concluded.
