The Tools You Can Use to Monitor the Dark Web


There are many dark web monitoring solutions today. They include various scanners, crawlers, and scrapers, which crawl the darknets for sensitive data that could be linked to data breaches, financial fraud, future terrorist attacks, or criminal activity.

All these solutions need to overcome various obstacles in order to provide good coverage of the dark web.

The first one is that content on the dark web is often elusive and fleeting. The content that is found one day on one network might not be there the next day. Criminals discussing plans and strategies on one marketplace or platform are likely to take their post down after a short while or switch between different domains to avoid getting caught.

Another obstacle is that the dark web lacks a standard search engine, which makes it difficult to find the specific information you are looking for.

In addition, criminals often make up their own lingo as another step to avoid detection, so performing a search for a type of drug or particular personal identification information (PII) is not always simple and requires fluency in dark web jargon.
Safely Tap into Dark Web Data
Leading cyber data feeds have ways to overcome these barriers. They can scan and extract data from the many different sites, files, marketplaces, darknets, and even chat messaging platforms – while protecting your anonymity.

What’s more, they understand the lingo criminals use, like DUMP (full credit card magnetic info) or fullz (full package of individual information). Knowing the right search terms enables you to offer sources to your customers that have more accurate data. Our laser-focused granular filtering includes the ability to search the darknets according to site name, keywords, wallet IDs, email addresses, phone numbers, and social security numbers in addition to other PII.

In response to these challenges, Webz.io’s dark web data feeds also provide an anonymized network and infrastructure to protect the identity of your organization. You’ll gain access to data, including hidden content from the furthest ends of the darknets, such as encrypted and password-protected illicit content. At the same time, you’ll also ensure the complete and secure protection of your identity.
