Have you ever wondered why it is so easy to find a website on the internet? Well the answer is search engines. Search engines such as Google, Bing & DuckDuckGo.com have indexed the entirety of the surface web. The websites you see in search engines are the ones present on the indexable part of the internet. What about the websites that cannot be indexed? These sites are located in the area known as the deep web. The deep web cannot be indexed by regular search engines, therefore the existence of a particular site is unknown unless we know its exact address.
For years tech enthusiasts and programmers have attempted to devise a method to index the deep web. But it has not successful yet. Recently Digital Shadows have identified a smart indexing service that has successfully managed to index a good portion of the deep web. The name of this smart indexing service is known as QUO. While there have been many more before QUO, this service has managed to build up a reputation.
Why is QUO different?
QUO is different from the other indexing services out there. Unlike the rest it uses smart indexing that allows it to filter out all the junk and illegal content on the deep web. It is a search engine that is completely useless for criminals.
How is the indexing of the deep web done?
QUO uses AI to scan pages that exist in the dark net. The Ai categorizes all the onion pages accordingly and filters out any that may have illegal content.
QUO currently has indexed over 200Gb of data. This roughly translates to about 8 million pages from 20,000 sites. With the amount of sponsoring it receives we believe it does a pretty good job at it. The AI is even capable of listing out mirror pages that are used to hold content.
All this translates to one thing – faster and easier access for users that require information from in the deep web.
