Source: twitter.comEveryone knows what Wikipedia is but how many of you know what the dark web is? In some countries because of their government efforts to throttle access to certain sites, people are not able to access Wikipedia. Alec Muffett, a former facebook security engineer, has ventured on a solution. He has put together an experimental Wikipedia service on the dark web.

This site is a trial and will only be running for a short time. It will be accessible using the Tor browser and it uses its own onion service to encrypt the traffic. The Tor browser routes the packets through a maze of routers to hide the IP of the user. In 2014, Muffett launched an onion service for facebook and released the open source enterprise onion toolkit. This site is not affiliated with the Wikimedia foundation and because it is in the experimental stage, the bugs have not been addressed.
