“Hacker”? ….How will you define the term ? ….Bad Guy ?…..Or Good Guy ?.…Well, ‘Hacker’ a single term do not give full details. …. It depends on ‘legal’ & ‘illegal’ actions…..If hacker performs ‘illegal’ actions against account or sites or system then s/he is BAD A**hole. . . . And if hacker finds a bug in system and reports to concerned sector, then hacker is damn coolest guy. . . . I’m not going to write a long dirty & lengthy words describing hackers. Hackers are categorized into BLACK, GREY, & WHITE HAT. –BIJAY ACHARYA
You’ve probably seen those deep-web images floating around on the Internet. Usually, it goes something like this: There is a towering iceberg and the deeper the underwater portion extends, the more “hidden” and “exotic” the content is described to be. Sometimes these images are accurate to a point, but most are just making things up.
So what exactly is ‘deep web’ then? Are there really hidden secrets and treasure buried under some cloak and dagger type conspiracy? Well, in short, the answer depends on your idea of treasure and conspiracy.

Hello World ! Well, welcome in my post. This will be in series, and this is first part. Throughout the series, I will share my research and findings with you. And that will be on topic, Encryption Is Not Enough. We will see, how Encryption is broken & what countermeasures should be implemented to secure it.
The term next-generation firewall is not well defined, so it’s worth clarifying a little before we proceed.
Put simply, a next-generation firewall offers more protection than a traditional firewall as it can look inside content, rather than just blocking based on sources and destination.
A useful analogy is the postal service. A traditional firewall just looks at the address on the envelope and uses simple rules to decide what’s permitted.
A next-gen firewall can look inside the envelope to check it also doesn’t contain dangerous content. Likewise, it can have smarter rules so you can say “block all known dodgy addresses” rather than having to explicitly state “don’t allow mail from Joe the scammer at number 23 Spam Lane.” SRC
The great thing about these smart rules is that you can transfer the responsibility for keeping an updated list of dodgy addresses to your firewall vendor rather than maintaining them manually yourself.
