Proxmox, Containers, and Proxies

Hi, my name is tiff. I am a former frontend developer pivoting to cybersecurity.

What is Proxmox?

Proxmox is a bit hard to setup and get right, but once it is up and done, it’s a nice way to create a cluster of nodes, all sandboxed with their own networks, ready to go.

Proxmox is a Hypervisor which is beyond the scope of this little post. Basically all you need to know is it is like a container that can hold multiple VMs in different clusters, each node on its own separate networks, with their own IPs.

Why Proxmox?

Say you want to run multiple machines you want to destroy with malware, run amok attacking it’s network with Kali tools. How to best do that? Why, VMs of course!

Or you could use something like Linode, of course…

Bonus: Soon I’ll be getting more into Proxy servers and why they’re important. Here’s a list of SOCKS5 proxies which is a highly recommended protocol. SOCKS free proxy servers list, open Socks5 and Socks4 proxies
