Young People on the Dark Web: Awareness, Attitudes and Usage

Abstract

Mračan web je sloj interneta s raznolikim teško dostupnim sadržajem koji se može podijeliti na legalan i ilegalan. Ovaj rad predstavlja sintezu postojeće literature o stranicama koje su trenutno mogu pronaći na mračnom webu, kao i one koje su uklonjene i koje su inicirale interes akademskih krugova iz nekoliko različitih znanstvenih područja. U radu se također analizira opća upućenost mladih ljudi o ovom sloju interneta te se anketom istražuje koriste li ga mladi u Hrvatskoj te znaju li uopće kakav se sadržaj tamo može pronaći. Također je objašnjeno kako se pristupa mračnome webu te s kojim se poteškoćama susrećemo prilikom istraživanja mračnog weba. Svrha ovog rada je potaknuti daljnja istraživanja o nekoliko segmenata mračnog weba: (1) o njegovim korisnicima, (2) o pozitivnom sadržaju koji se tamo nalazi te (3) potaknuti domaće akademske krugove na istraživanje dubokog i/ili mračnog weba.The Dark Web is a layer of the Internet with a variety of difficult-to-access content that can be split into legal and illegal. This paper represents the synthesis of existing literature on sites currently found on the dark web as well as those that have been removed and which have initiated the interest of academic circles from several different scientific fields. The paper also analyzes the general outreach of young people about this layer of the Internet and surveys whether they use it in Croatia and whether they can find any content there. It is also explained how to access the dark web and encounter difficulties when researching the dark web. The purpose of this paper is to stimulate further research on a few dark web segments: (1) its users, (2) the positive content contained therein, and (3) to encourage domestic academic circles to explore either a deep or dark web
