Despite some skepticism that the DarkWeb server would actually work, the hidden service that was created in a virtual machine on a laptop was successfully accessed by a phone with a TOR browser.
The demonstration was followed by a guided tour of some of the hidden services currently on the DarkWeb, including the varied nefarious content found in them.
For complete info with details on how to build your own hidden service, go here.

In the spirit of Beirut Open Source Society’s mission, the following two events will be taking place this month:
The first event will be a discussion in collaboration with the Nerd Fun Lebanon meetup group regarding:
- Establishing an IT oriented NGO connecting us with others internationally.
- Installing and maintaining GNU/Linux installations in local public libraries and community centers.
- Supporting the underprivileged youth in Lebanon in their quest to learn how to code.
- Lots of other fun stuff…
Join us at Dawawine in Gemmeyze on Fri 10th November at 8:30pm for this great opportunity to network and gain experience.
The second is a one-hour practical workshop titled How To Build a Secure and Anonymous Server in the DarkWeb showing you live the steps to take to build it. This server:
- Is location-hidden
- Can work with either a dynamic or fixed IP
- Is secure
- Is anonymous
- Is also entirely free!
Meet us at T-Marbouta in Hamra Square, Hamra, at 7:30pm on Fri 17th of November for this unique session. We’ll be in the library / meeting room upstairs.
