CIA launches its official anonymous onion site over the Tor network, where people can apply for jobs and for reporting information.
Onion websites can be reachable only via the Tor network, and search engines do not index these sites. They operate under the under layered proxy networks.
By installing the Tor Browser, you can access the dark web hosting websites. The Dark Web, on the other hand, is defined as “the portion of the Internet that is intentionally hidden from search engines, uses masked IP addresses, and is accessible only with a specific web browser.
Tor browser ensures your communication around a distributed system of transfers keeps running by volunteers all around the globe.
It prevents some person viewing your Internet connection from realizing what websites you visit, it prevents the websites you visit from learning your physical location, and it gives you a chance to get to websites which are blocked.
CIA believes it’s a move to Onion Site offers “Secure, anonymous, untraceable—traits ever-present in CIA’s intelligence collection mission,” reads CIA press release.

“Our global mission demands that individuals can access us securely from anywhere. Creating an onion site is just one of many ways we’re going where people are,” said Brittany Bramell, CIA’s Director of Public Affairs.
The dark website site is the mirror link of www.cia.gov, “The World Factbook to reporting information to apply for a job, is available on our onion site.”
