Alternatives to Darknet/Deepnet Tor Technologies
People often ask which one is safe, Tor or I2P, what other safe networks are out there, and whether there are any alternatives to Tor. When searching the web for alternatives to Tor, one will find many options. After a lot of research and testing, the following five alternatives to the Tor dark web work relatively well. Therefore, they are described in depth.
Invisible Internet Project (I2P) is a fully encrypted private network layer designed for privacy and security in order to provide protection for your activities, location and identity. The software comes with a router that connects you to networks and applications to share, communicate and build.
I2P is considered to be the best Tor alternative for accessing the dark web. It encrypts Internet traffic by using layers of public and private keys. By doing so, it ensures that no one can track or violate a user's online privacy.
I2P hides the server from the user and the user from the server. All I2P traffic is inside the I2P network. traffic inside I2P does not interact directly with the Internet. It is a layer that sits on top of the Internet, making it the center of network traffic and the best alternative to the Tor network.
ZeroNet is another popular alternative to the dark web, working through P2P networks. This means that there is no central server, but network data is still transferred from user to user. It also uses the BitTorrent network and Bitcoin encryption, and the sites are identified with public keys rather than IP addresses.
One of the best things about this network is that you can even use it without an Internet connection. Also, it starts out like a forum, but you can jump from site to site and find pages on any topic.
You can download ZeroNet on Windows, macOS and Linux from its official website.
Freenet is a fully distributed P2P anonymous distribution network that provides a secure way to store data, as well as some attempts to address flooding loads. While Freenet is designed for distributed data storage, people have also built applications on top of Freenet that make more general anonymous communication possible, such as static websites and message boards.
Freenet offers some substantial benefits over I2P - it is a distributed data storage network, which I2P is not, and Freenet allows users to retrieve published content even if the publisher of the content is offline. In addition, Freenet should be able to distribute popular data efficiently.
You can download it for free on Windows, macOS and Linux.
GNUnet is a framework for secure and anonymous peer-to-peer networks that do not use any centralized or otherwise trusted services.
GNUnet provides decentralized peer-to-peer communication over Bluetooth, WLAN, HTTPS, TCP and UDP ports. It protects sensitive information by minimizing the amount of PII you have.
5. Subgraph OS
Subgraph is an open source Tor-based anonymous browser, which differs from Tor or I2P in that SubgraphOS is an operating system and not a separate browser. subgraph OS introduces kernel enhancements, MetaProxy, a sandboxing system, packet security mechanisms, application network policies, code integrity and file system Subgraph OS introduces kernel enhancements, MetaProxy, sandboxing, packet security, application network policies, code integrity and file system encryption to build its strong security protection.
With the sandboxing system, it helps us create a completely isolated Internet environment and will disengage the current instance when malware is detected. In addition, Subgraph OS comes with an instant messaging feature called CoyIM and an email client called Icedove to eliminate security risks in client-side communication.
