Definition: A firewall mechanism that replaces the
Internet Protocol (IP) address of a host on the internal (protected) network with its own IP address for all traffic passing through it.

A software agent that acts on behalf of a user, typical proxies accept a connection from a user, make a decision as to whether or not the user or client IP address is permitted to use the proxy, perhaps does additional authentication, and then completes a connection on behalf of the user to a remote destination.
