The dark web is basically the World Wide Web information which exists on dark nets: anonymous overlay networks that utilize the Internet but come with specific configuration, software, or access authorization to do so. Because of the secrecy of these networks, it is difficult to determine exactly what the dark web contains. According to one popular internet myth, the dark net can only be accessed from a computer or server in another country; however, this is not true at all. The dark net does contain files and information, but these can only be viewed by individuals who possess the specialized technical skills to penetrate the many layers of encryption which are put in place to protect the files. Two notable pieces of dark web evidence have been uncovered in recent years. One of these involves an investigation which resulted in the arrest and conviction of two men for the murder of an FBI agent. In this case, the dark web sites were used as an indirect method of communication between the killers and their supposed victim, in this cases an undercover FBI agent posing as a potential buyer. During the course of this internet investigation, the agents found evidence that strongly suggested the men intended to kill the agent and planned to set up a home-based business which would give them access to the dark web. Additionally, records which had previously been deleted were recovered from the home computer of one of the suspects, which confirmed prior to their arrest that he was indeed selling weapons and other illegal items online. Other evidence discovered included an archive of the dark web's major forums which contained discussions about weapons, robbery, killing, and murder, as well as the personal information of several dark net users. While it is unclear whether or not the dark web ever played a role in the investigation that led to these men's arrests, the discovery of the archive of forums and evidence provided by the two men provided the FBI with valuable new information in the investigation. Moreover, the information which was recovered included a list of IP addresses which were connected to computers used by the killers. Although this does not mean that all computers on the dark web are connected to criminal activity, it does mean that there is strong evidence that points to a possible cyber crime. This means that the FBI and other international law enforcement partners have put more effort into combating cyber crime, as it is believed to be on the rise in the coming year.
