Darknet (file sharing) Darknets are distinct from other distributed peer-to-peer networks as sharing is anonymous (that is, IP addresses are not publicly shared), and therefore users can communicate with little fear of governmental or corporate interference. For this reason, darknets are often associated with dissident political communications and illegal activities. More generally, the term "darknet" can be used to describe all non-commercial sites on the Internet, or to refer to all "underground" web communications and technologies, most commonly those associated with illegal activity or dissent. The Microsoft researchers argued that the presence of the darknet was the primary hindrance to the development of workable DRM technologies. The term has since been widely adopted and has seen usage in major media sources, including Rolling Stone and Wired. Almost all known darknets are decentralized and therefore considered peer to peer.
Internet Traffic Archive The Internet Traffic Archive is a moderated repository to support widespread access to traces of Internet network traffic, sponsored by ACM SIGCOMM. The traces can be used to study network dynamics, usage characteristics, and growth patterns, as well as providing the grist for trace-driven simulations. The archive is also open to programs for reducing raw trace data to more manageable forms, for generating synthetic traces, and for analyzing traces. Traces contributed to the archive have no restrictions as to what use may be made of them (except for traffic analysis as noted below). Traces may however have restrictions on redistribution.
