The Honeynet Project is excited to announce the release of our newest
paper in our Know Your Enemy series, KYE-Lite: Proxy Threats - Socks
v666.

This new "KYE-Lite" format is to focus on very specific topics and be
more frequent in release in order to address emerging trends, threats
and development work with Honeynet Technology and research.

In this paper we discuss: the basic operational concept of how reverse
tunnel proxies work, a new customized control protocol in use, the
advantages to the criminal community, a detailed example and it's
similarities to legacy SOCKS protocols, and how this activity can be
further identified including mitigation strategies.
