TRANSCRIPT: 

The term darknet was coined in the ‘70s and it was meant as a way to describe networks isolated from ARPANET [The Advanced Research Projects Agency Network]. ARPANET eventually became the commercial Internet run by the private telecoms we all use today.

ARPA was created by the US Department of Defense and it was created to share data of other projects and research laboratories with the universities. And for those of you familiar with networking, it was the first packet switching network, which is the foundation to modern networking.

Now we’re not talking about the World Wide Web here. That didn’t show up until 1990 when Tim Berners-Lee set up the first web server at CERN. The Internet is a massive piece of hardware. It enables communication instantly on a global scale.
