What are SOCKS?

Socket Secure (SOCKS) is an Internet protocol that routes network or data packets between a client and server through a proxy server. SOCKS ensure proper authentication of users and allows authorised users only to access a server. SOCKS uses sockets to represent and keep track of individual connections. The client side of SOCKS is built into certain Web browsers and the server side can be added to a proxy server.
