I stopped penetration testing and studying network security, for the most part, when the "NSA Playset" was released years ago. Thus, I have an IT question to impose upon you.
I will be traveling overseas and I will need to access a website and a server securely. If I connect to, say a hotel wifi in Thailand, can the SSH be sniffed and compromised? I have never read anything about stripping security from SSH so this is my main concern.
SSLstrip can compromise web traffic, thus I will certainly need a VPN. Should I also be using a private Sock proxy? Is there a precaution I can take before connecting to hotel wifi?
I feel I only need a VPN, but using wifi at a hotel in another country is really off-putting to me. Someone could potentially be snipping all traffic on known ports all ready and using some mechanism unknown to me to filter my traffic.
Any and all help is greatly appreciated. Thank you for taking the time thus far!
