Comment The bad guys (Score 4, Interesting) 167

Worthless, the bad guys will use custom apps and custom encryption scheme to stay ahead. You will end up spying on joe six pack and stupid criminals. Really dangerous guys will find a way to stay ahead. The only way to win is to keep up and being able to decrypt their communications by any means we can. No bill can help that.

Click Ctrl riight-shift alt D on your keyboard.

A popup will appear asking you to confirm that you want to enter the dark-net.

Click OK. You are now on the darknet. It is like a second kind of Internet. This functionality is not publicized to much and more or less kept secret to protect the children.

P.S. You need recent browser and OS versions in order to access it since the TCP stack had to be adapted for the darknet. It uses a special bit in the TCP header.

That's why they never write such letters duh. It would be like incriminating themselves. Everything is done verbally and sometimes the person who receives the message doesn't even know the identity of the person who delivers it.

Now, try to prove you received the message; "Some guy told me that...". Worse case, when you know the identity of the person, it is his words against yours, there again, not much chances.

Those who claim the dead never return to life haven't ever been around here at quitting time.
