tomaswolf commented on issue #479:

   See the diagrams in our [technical documentation  on port 
 With dynamic port forwarding, the SOCKS proxy sits in the SSH client, and the 
remote SSH server is instructed to connect to the target host. The connection 
between SSH client and SSH server is encrypted. The connection between the 
SOCKS client and the SOCKS proxy is not, but that is normally not needed. 
(Unless you make the SOCKS port externally accessible, the SOCKS client will be 
on the same host as the SOCKS proxy.) When the connection is established end to 
end, it depends on the protocol between the SOCKS client and the target server 
whether they encrypt their data stream.
