Shadow Surfing is a new term to describe the act of using proxy technologies to bypass web filters in schools. Although many school filters now successfully prevent students from using ordinary web-based anonymous proxies, secure proxies have a different problem altogether since they generate secure tunnels where the content is encrypted and cannot be easily monitored. Tom Newton, education security expert for SmoothWall, discusses the fastest growing form of Internet abuse in schools – Shadow Surfing – and ways to overcome it.
