To provide secure traversal service, firewalls need more than static packet filtering and application-level proxies. SOCKS is an application-independent transport-level proxy that offers user-level authentication and data encryption. An extended SOCKS UDP binding model with appropriate socket calls is proposed to provide complete support for UDP-based, multimedia streaming applications.
