What is proxy daisy chaining? Why do proxies have different entry and exit ips, What are proxy entry and exit ips? What are the differences between high-anonymous, anonymous, elite and transparent proxies?

Daisy Chaining Proxies

Let us first take the simplest proxy example shown below. A user connecting to a proxy to get fetch a site. Now we assume that the user wants to hack the Target Site. The user wants to run a denial of service attack.

  1. The user send the attack request to the proxy Proxy 1.
  2. The proxy sends the request to the targetd site. Now the targeted site sees the Proxy's IP as the attacking IP.
The targeted site complains to the hosting provider. The hosting provider shuts down the proxy. Because the proxy has violated the Acceptable Useage Policy of the Hosting Provider.


To avoid being shutdown many proxy providers use another proxy as the exit proxy. Let's examine the diagram below.

  1. The user send an attack request to Proxy 1 targeting the Target Site
  2. Proxy 1 sends the request to Proxy 2
  3. Proxy 2 sends the request to the Target Site
Now the Target Site sees Proxy 2 as the attacking site and complains to the hosting proivder The hosting provider then shuts down Proxy 2 for AUP violation. Proxy 1 is safe as it's identity was hidden by Proxy 2

Also on this occasion the entry IP of the proxy is Proxy 1 but the exit IP of the proxy is Proxy 2's exit IP. These IP's are probably very different from each other. And is one way to identify a daisy chaining.

Different Proxy Scenarios

  1. User 1 surfs the internet using Proxy 1. From a security and safety point of view this is the best scenario
  2. User 2 surfs via Proxy 1 but the request is cascaded via Proxy 2
  3. User 2 surfs via Proxy 3
  4. Proxy 3 cascades the request via Proxy 4 for some requests.
  5. For other requests Proxy 4 cascades the request via a proxy network serverProxy Network Server 1
  6. User 3 surfs via a proxy Network

The genaral rule of thumb is the less proxies you have in a chain the safer and securer it is. For example let us assume that a proxy has 1 in 2 chances of being hacked. So if you use the proxy you have a 50% chance of being safe and 50% chance of having your data stolen. Now if the proxy is going via another proxy then you have 3 in 4 chance or 75% chance of having your data stolen. If you increase the proxy chain to 3 then you have a 7 in 8 chance or 87.5% chance of having your data stolen.
