Kernel Socks Bouncer

KSB26 (Kernel Socks Bouncer) is Linux Kernel 2.6.x loadable module that redirects TCP connections (to user-defined target hosts) through SOCKS 4/5 chains in a completely transparent way. It uses a character device to pass SOCKS 4/5 and the target IP addresses to the Linux kernel. This is obviously quite useful if you want to transparently tunnel certain things through a given proxy to remain anonymous, or if you want to be able to sniff certain network traffic transparently.
