SITE Publications
A Highly Technical and Detailed Guide for Creating Internet Proxies by the Global Islamic Media Front
By SITE Institute
March 31, 2006

Following the arrest of several members of the jihadist Internet community, including Irhabi 007 , guides instructing in how a user may secure their identity and use the Internet with a high-degree of anonymity were distributed to several jihadist forums. Proxy servers are the cardinal tool used by those members seeking to avoid detection, and a recently issued manual by the Global Islamic Media Front provides a highly technical and detailed method of doing so. The eleven-page guide utilizes a combination of images and laymen analogies to instruct the end-user in using proxy servers, and even creating their own private proxy to ensure anonymity and trust.

The guide describes a variety of Internet protocols, web applications and language scripts as steps to creating a private proxy. Making evident in a clear way the importance of such a tool, the author provides a chart of various proxy types so that the user may see the advantages and disadvantages of each.

A translation of the guide is provided to our Intel Service members.
