Futures Inc has been performing research in the DarkWeb (TOR) area of the Internet since 2004. We have proven to be SMEs (Subject Matter Experts) in this area for the Federal Government, Think Tanks, and Fortune 1000 companies. We have extensive experience collecting, processing, and extracting information from the DarkWeb. Our experts have spent a lot of time hands on with accessing the DarkWeb's resources as well as utilizing the anonymization capabilities to access standard Internet resources.
Many companies and researchers utilize standard data collection open source tools to access and collect information on the DarkWeb. Our team developed a framework to access these resources and utilize them in manners that are considered advanced in the industry.
In 2019 our Advanced Capabilities Team (ACT) created a new service which ran 24/7 for 6 months. This capability's mission was to identify as many TOR exit nodes as it possible. A lot of companies provide paid for services to provide this information, but our research has identified some of them to be lacking. Since we started this project, this service has uncovered over 3,700 exit nodes. At the same time we have run tests for companies paying for other services and have found we can access their internet resources from hundreds of "unknown" TOR exit nodes in a single night. Please feel free to contact us if you are interested. We continue to run this service from time to time in order to identify new information.
