The White House Market has been in the spotlight for quite some time now. It has come to light after a couple of really scary exit scams, especially in the English lingual darknet zone. The White House Market, also known by the abbreviation WHM, is known for its top-notch practice of security including the cryptocurrencies used, constant ongoing bug bounty, and the dedication towards improving its security with each passing day.
The White House Market Dark Web Links
Being a darknet market based on the Tor Network, the users need to have the market address to be able to enter the market. Here is the primary link to the market as well as the mirror links (this can be used when the primary address is unreachable).
Mirror Links (TOR):
In this article, we will take you through the various sides of the dark web market aiming at helping you to understand the market in the best possible ways. However,l this article is meant for the educational and knowledge purpose only and usage of the stated darknet market is the sole responsibility of the user. So, without much waiting, let us get into the details of the deep web market.
The user interface is the one that makes the website stand out. Almost similar to the other deepweb markets, the White House Market has a unique top bar that displays the categories of the products and a left side section where all the products listings are displayed. The only thing that you will find different in this darknet market from the other similar dark web markets is that the product listings on the left side bear a small thumbnail of the product alongside the vendor name, the category the product belongs to, the name, shipping source, price, and the destination. In order to get a good insight, you will have to hover over the thumbnails and the other elements. For ease of access, there is also a built-in search bar in the dashboard.
Products Listings & Categories
The product listings and categories of the White House Marketplace (WHM) are pretty impressive. That said, it is a fact that the products and categories included in a darknet market can actually make or break its reputation at the very first glance. In this particular sub-topic, we will be disclosing all details about the product listings and the categories that are made available on the darknet market.
The current total listings (at the time of writing) is 44856. After thoroughly monitoring the marketplace for over 48 hours, it could be said that the market attempts to include approximately a hundred product listings in the specified time frame. This states that the market is much active unlike most of the other darkweb markets running simultaneously.
The most product listings containing category is the “Drugs” that bears as many as 34401 listings. But, a shocking thing has been spotted on the marketplace. The harmful drug “fentanyl” is readily available on the market which is mostly banned by other similar deepweb marketplaces. The second most heavily stocked category is the “Online Businesses” and related goods comprising 4573 listings. It basically consists of finance-based digital items such as login details, bank details, card details, dumps, drops and related.
The next is the “Software” category boasting 1752 listings consisting of malware, botnet, exploits, exploit kits and other software. The services category mentioned in the marketplace with 2526 listings enables the users to acquire hacking services alongside custom-tailored fake documents of both physical and digital variety. A different “Forgeries/Counterfeit” section has been made available with 1564 listings from where the counterfeit products can be obtained such as luxury jewellery without a price tag, a Rolex watch, and similar items. The users receive the exact products that they pay for.
A new category “Defense/Counter Intel” has been introduced that currently has just 40 listings, body armours, camera detectors, metal detectors to name a few.
The following trades are strictly banned from the market:
- Child Porn
- Terrorism related items.
- Hitmen/Killer services.
- Weapons (both lethal and non-lethal).
- And tutorials.
Impressive Features of the White House Market
The White House Market has pretty interesting features like its product listings, categories, and user interface. These features are often praised by its users which is the reason why the marketplace has managed to stand out to date. The most prominent feature of the WHM is the availability of failsafe for almost all of the most common darknet threats.
- The Public PGP key is available along with other data associated with it on its homepage. This is meant to avoid the duplicity of its website.
- A PGP-signed message is provided that gets updated every 72 hours. The message comprises the legitimate White House Market Links. It also groups a couple of the most recent global news headlines that ensures that the PGP message is updated recently and that it must not be interpreted as an old message.
- Mandatory PGP requirement has been levied by the market admins which the users can take control of after they have enabled the feature for their respective profiles. Thus, without a PGP key, none of the orders can be placed, products are browsed, communications with the vendors and the other members of the market cannot be carried out.
- Auto-enable of the 2-FA or Two-factor Authentication for a user profile with the enabling of PGP. This means that as a user enables and sets up a PGP key for his profile, the 2-FA automatically gets enabled. However, the platform does not allow unencrypted or plaintext communication on the platform.
- Anti-DDoS protection is available with the personal domains as the attacks are server and domain-specific. The White House Market offers personal marketplace domains to its high-volume sellers and buyers. An amazing fact is that offering personal domains is the only thing that you would not find in any other dark web market. This ensures that even if the market’s primary domain is under attack, the personal domains remain accessible thus granting access to the marketplace.
- The Bug Bounty Program introduced by the darknet market platform is awesome. The White House Market admins claim that the code of the platform had been written down from scratch. This might draw some potential security flaws and loopholes that might be present on the site. Thus, the platform probably offers financial compensation to all the security researchers and the pen-testers who successfully locates and reports such bugs.
- Escrow is available on the platform along with the user profile statistics. The escrow protects the users from one another from getting defrauded. In simple words, both parties (the buyer and the seller) can get away without fulfilling the end of the bargain. As the trade is initiated, the buyer’s funds are stored in the marketplace escrow. This fund is then sent to the seller as soon as they deliver their products.
- The marketplace offers detailed statistics on every user profile the platform has. This helps the vendors to judge a buyer in a better way and vice versa. In the primary view, the percentage of the buyers and vendor reviews is what helps others to get an insight of credibility, the seriousness of the user and the authenticity of both parties.
- The White House Market strictly abides by the no-logs policy, which means that the platform does not permanently store any logs. After individual trades, the individually identifiable information details are permanently deleted.
- The platform accepts only Monero (XMR) cryptocurrency as of now and rules out Bitcoin (BTC) due to its privacy issues.
- The market is not wallet less. Every user is provided with their individual accounts where the users deposit their funds. Each wallet address is solely valid for one transaction.
What did the WHM miss out on as a part of security? Well, there are still a couple of security features that are yet to be incorporated.
