Current dark web monitoring tools have several limitations, including:

  • Inaccessibility to Certain Sites: Some dark web sites are highly encrypted and difficult to access, even for advanced monitoring tools.
  • Difficulty in Distinguishing Activities: Separating legitimate activities from malicious ones can be challenging due to the anonymity of the dark web.
  • False Positives: Monitoring tools may generate false positives, leading to unnecessary alerts and actions.
  • Coverage Gaps: No tool can guarantee 100% coverage of the dark web due to its constantly evolving nature. To overcome these limitations, it’s essential to use a combination of automated tools and manual monitoring by cybersecurity experts.
