The dark web provides shelter for all kinds of cybercriminal activity. Accessible only through private browsers, like Tor, which enables secret trading and communication, the dark web allows hackers to operate in the shadows and preserve anonymity. While most cybersecurity experts are well-informed of the dangers that hide behind the dark web, many do not have the expertise or tools to identify, validate, and mitigate threats against them.
The Dark Web notably presents a challenging landscape for threat hunting due to its anonymous nature and basic difficulties in forcing regulations. An inevitable part of cyber defense is the ability to identify and neutralize threats at the most beginning of the cyber kill chain.
