What Is Shadowsocks?

Shadowsocks is a secure proxy based on SOCKS5. As an example, using Shadowsocks, you can reroute your server to a server from an unblocked location to access blocked websites.

How Does Shadowsocks Work?

The Shadowsocks instance acts as a proxy service to clients (ss-local.) It uses a process of encrypting and forwarding data/packets from the client to the remote server (ss-remote), which will decrypt the data and forward to the target.

A reply from the target will also be encrypted and sent by ss-remote back to the client (ss-local.)

client <—> ss-local <–[encrypted]–> ss-remote <—> target
