Hunting for child porn, FBI stymied by Tor undernet

v3rgEz writes "Documents released by the FBI provide an unusual inside look at how the agency is struggling to penetrate "darknet" Onion sites routed through Tor, the online privacy tool funded in part by government grants to help global activists. In this case, agents were unable to persue specific leads about an easily available child pornography site, while files withheld indicate that the FBI has ongoing investigations tied to the Silk Road marketplace, a popular, anonymous Tor site for buying and selling drugs and other illegal materials.
