Tor's ex-director: 'The criminal use of Tor has become overwhelming'

OWL Cybersecurity Vice President Andrew Lewman shared his thoughts on the current state and future of the darknet with Cyberscoop News. As the former Director of the Tor Project, Andrew is uniquely positioned to provide expert commentary on the elusive world of hidden services and the criminal activity that often takes place there.
