-- you actually (hopefully) know and trust each of your peers,
unlike opennet strangers.
May be I have watched too many 007 movies, but what if one of your
trusted peers is actually a double agent?
That's a good question. Maybe someone more knowlegeable can help flesh
out the details, but I recall reading a while back that it's possible
for peers to know what is in each other's datastores/caches? (Via a
timing attack... faster retrievals imply something exists?) Although
one still has plausible deniability so long as you have at least one
non-compromised peer, so I'm not sure how meaningful this would be.
Also it's *significantly* more expensive to infiltrate a social network with a
double agent so that everybody has one than to run one node which slowly moves
towards a target in OpenNet.
To move in DarkNet you actually have to go and talk to a person... something
like "Hi, do you mind introducing me to some of your friends?" which may work
