CNNMoney – Want to view the “Deep Web”?
That’s is internet connected devices that aren’t normally indexed by search engines like Google – then use Shodan
It’s a kind of “dark” Google, looking for the servers, webcams, printers, routers and all the other stuff (ed. such as industrial control systems) that is connected to and makes up the Internet.
