The Adventures of

Online Security for Dummies


w w w. s u p e r p e i f . c o m
Meet the Kalinovskys, an ordinary
family living somewhere in Eastern
Europe. Like most of us, both the
older and younger Kalinovskys
spend lots of time on the Internet,
chatting in social networks, playing
online games, downloading music,
watching live sports events,
shopping online and meeting new
people on online dating sites.

The comic “The Adventures of


Super Peif” explains the basics
of how to be safe on the Internet.
It will help you to protect your
personal data and keep your
passwords, files, email boxes
and online finances safe.

It offers simple answers to the


security issues that normal people
face in their everyday online life.

All the traffic between these
relays is encrypted, and
each of the relays knows
only the IP address of two
other relays – the one
immediately previous
to it and the one
immediately after
it in the chain.

This makes it very difficult


for your Internet provider to
know what your target Web
site is or what information
you are sending.

Sometimes
Internet providers
can block Tor.
13

14
In this case you may want to use
the bridge feature of Tor.

"Bridges" are Tor relays that aren't


listed in the main public Tor directory.
This is a deliberate measure to stop
these relays from being blocked.
Even if your Internet service provider
is filtering connections to all the
publicly-known Tor relays, it may
not be able to block all of the bridges.
15

15
16 17
To use a bridge, you
need to locate one and
add its information in
your network settings.
Send an email from a
Gmail account to
bridges@torproject.org
with the line "get
bridges" – by itself –
in the body of the mail.

After you get addresses for some


bridge relays, you must configure Tor
with whatever bridge address
you intend to use.

If you doubt whether your Internet connection


is protected, use Hotspot Shield.

14

This impenetrable tunnel


protects your email, instant
messages, information about
online purchases and all other
data sent via the Internet from
unauthorized viewers. Hotspot Shield creates a virtual private network
(VPN) between your computer and the Internet –
a reliable, secure “tunnel” for safe access.

20
16

Moreover, Hotspot Shield encodes all data,


thus ensuring your anonymity in cyberspace.

the Internet?

Hmmm... I can't download

Perhaps, the university


administrators have blocked
access to all video sites,
since streaming eats up
lots of bandwidth.

Sometimes Internet providers There can be different
or web administrators block reasons for restricting
access to various websites access: for example,
by using firewalls. your boss might want you
to focus on your work
and not waste bandwidth
on audio or video
streaming.

The software that blocks


these sites is like the “wall”

a proxy utility called Ultra Surf. It will
