Proxy To Bypass Restrictions On College Network

Seeing the amount of time and bandwidth students waste on social networking sites and torrent downloads. Most of the colleges (at-least in India) have blocked access to such sites on their network. The effectiveness of this restrictive measures depend upon the system used by the college to place this restrictions. Now most of this systems can be easily bypassed by using some simple trick or procedure. But some colleges employ professional system to place the restrictions. Bypassing them can be a real headache. But here is a proxy service which you can use to even bypass this professional systems. Frankly i didn't try it, but one of my friend was facing the restrictions on his college Wi-Fi, especially for torrent downloads. Now he had the options to use other bypassing tricks but it would not work for him because he was compelled to use his student login details to connect to the internet and he feared that if the authorities came across his bypassing he would be permenately blocked from the network. But when he used the below proxy service according to him the proxy bypassed the whole login procedure and directly connected to the internet.

PD-Proxy is a proxy software which uses tunneling to provide more secure connection to the internet. According to my freind, it uses VPN to bypass the system and connect directly to internet. If you are using Wi-Fi this VPN service can be very useful as the information travelling from your computer to the VPN is encryted and thus you have an added layer of security.
To use the service, you have to visit their website and sign up. Then download and install the software. Connect through the software and enjoy. Their free account has 100mb limit. Before you buy premium account please check if it works for you, don't come blaming me later, because you can never be sure which service is good to bypass a particular restricting system.

Ethical Hacking Course Review

Ethical hacking means to use your hacking skills to try to find weaknesses and security holes in a system, the results of which can be later used to fix those problems and close the security holes which will ultimately lead to a more secure and robust system. Please understand that ethical hacking doesn’t mean your usual social networking hacking and some simple hacking tricks, it is a very broad field, involving many subjects and genres.
Learning ethical hacking can be sometimes time consuming and difficult, as the beginners may get confused and overwhelmed by the amount of information online. Many times the beginners without any proper guidance may try to directly learn advanced things without any prior knowledge of the basics and the fundamentals. I get daily queries about from where to start learning about hacking and which ebooks and sources to refer. I usually don’t answer the queries because ethical hacking is a vast subject and it is difficult to predict in which type of hacking the leaner has interest in. So I would recommend first to understand about the field of ethical hacking and decide whether you are really interested in it.
Now to learn and get basic ideas about ethical hacking, I would suggest you to take same basic ethical hacking course. One such institution providing such course is Innobuzz. If you are an engineering student, I think you may be familiar with the name, they regularly conduct seminars and training programs in colleges. I did not attend one, some of my friends and cousin attended it. Later when I asked about it they said they where happy with innobuzz and that it was a good experience for the beginners who have no or very little idea about what ethical hacking really is.

Innobuzz is a delhi-based institution which provides training courses in ethical hacking and information security. According to their site they have good industry tie-ups and have strong presence in the information security industry. They offer both physical and distance learning courses.
The distance learning course is a viable option for the beginners who may not be able to attend the physical classes. The distance learning course has no time limit but it is expected from the learner to finish it in roughly one month after which he can give the online certification exam. If you pass it you will be awarded their CISE Level 1 v2.0 (Certified Information Security Expert) certification. The certification is offered by Innobuzz and it can be a very useful certification in your Resume.
The distance learning course requires no prior knowledge of hacking and information security, you just need to have a basic knowledge of computer and networking. Here is some information about the course
