The Hidden Wiki is a website that uses hidden services available through the Tor network. The site has a collection of links to other .onion sites, and encyclopedia articles in a wiki format.
As a hidden service, The Hidden Wiki operates through the
.onion pseudo top-level domain and can be accessed only via the Tor network. The site provides a range of links in a wiki format to other hidden services and sites on the clearnet (sites that can be accessed in a standard browser). These include links to sites sharing child pornography and E-commerce sites selling contraband goods and services, including weapons, counterfeit money and identity documents, stolen credit card information, murder for hire, and drugs, such as the Silk Road which was seized by law enforcement in October 2013.
