What is a proxy server? And can it provide you with a sufficient level of security?Imagine, that we are looking at the Internet under a microscope, then we will see the exchange of digital data between devices. In order to identify each other, these devices use IP addresses. In simple terms, an IP address is an identifier for a computer or other device on the World Wide Web. But, as in the real world, we don’t want everyone to know our address, especially various intruders. In the Internet, a proxy server is used for this purpose. A proxy server is an analogue of a gateway through which data passes in both directions: both to your device and from your device to the Internet. In this case, the proxy server replaces your IP-address. If we are talking about a local network (as a rule, a proxy server is used exactly in its configuration), then not only your device, but other computers connected to this local network can access the Internet via the same proxy server. This is called indirect connection.
