    The aim of this thesis is to show the importance of security and anonymity on the internet by demonstrating the use of a SOCKS proxy. In theoretical part, properties of various security mechanisms are explored with focus on SOCKS protocol as one of the most widely used systems. Presented are the inner workings and different versions as well as advantages and drawbacks of the protocol. The paper tries to identify the simplest way of encrypting data traffic by using SOCKS protocol with SSH tunneling. It will be demonstrated that it is possible to set up a SOCKS5 proxy server with SSH tunneling by use of a single command, thus ensuring the integrity of data.
