Tensions Between China & Taiwan Realized on the Darknet

October 05, 2022

DarkOwl analysts took note of an increased amount of darknet activity surrounding the current geopolitical tensions between China and Taiwan.

Using darknet, deep web, and high-risk surface web data, this report endeavors to shed light on the digital underground’s reaction to the countries’ political tensions stemming from China’s “One-China Principle” and its refusal to recognize Taiwan’s independence.

This report will also demonstrate how recent cyberattacks in August augment political criticism of Taiwan. Of particular note is the on-going barrage of leaks surfacing as a result of attacks against key organizations in both countries, and discusses the general darknet sentiment regarding China’s global reputation and their potential invasion of Taiwan.
