From Project Loki:
Loki Network Project is an opportunity to protect your private data (IP address, e-mail/FTP/HTTP passwords, web-sites visited, uploaded/downloaded files and etc...) and bypass certain Internet access limitations you may have at your location. An example, Loki Network allows you:
- Protect your data from being intercepted by various network sniffers in your LAN segment
- Safely bypass traffic interception and analyses on corporate, ISP or even country level firewall
- Bypass any limitations in visiting web-sites or any other Internet services (if access to Loki Network servers is not blocked directly).
A Loki Network provides you with a private connection to your end destination. We provide you with a secure tunnel to the Loki Network Server. To do this a tunnel is created through an untrusted network (the internet). Everything in the tunnel is encrypted. It no longer matters that someone can sniff your packets. All they will see is an unreadable series of letters and numbers. Additionally, anyone snooping around on your connection will not be able to discern the final destination or the type (web, email, chat, video) of service you are connected to.
An example, if you're using Internet from your workplace to visit any entertaining sites you may feel safe because your network administrator wonÃ?Â¢Ã¢?Â¬Ã¢?Â¢t see more than encrypted HTTPS (by default Loki Network client tunnels through TCP port 443 which is typically opened in most of firewall configurations) connection to one of the Loki Network servers and he wonÃ?Â¢Ã¢?Â¬Ã¢?Â¢t be able to report you. You also get complete access to the entire Internet even if corporate firewall is configured to block access to some certain services or web-sites.
Loki Network allows you to surf the Internet anonymously and hides your real location (IP address). Everything you do through the Loki Network is done from the name of the Loki Network server and from its IP address. Connection between your computer and Loki Network is secured with SSL. However, to protect your anonymity you still have to be careful about any data you fill in web forms and network applications you use locally (any locally running application still have the complete access to your real IP address). Please note that if you are connected as Guest, you can't send mail through Loki Server to avoid spam from our servers.
