How I made my own WireGuard VPN server

Some of you may have heard about VPN protocols that let you establish a connection between your device and a server, such as OpenVPN and IPsec. But there’s a brand new shiny protocol that promises to be faster and more secure at the same time — WireGuard . But WTF is a VPN anyway? A VPN is a virtual private network between a device in front of you and a server in a data center. If you want to hide your internet traffic from other people on your local network, you can create a tunnel between your device and a server. All your network traffic will go through this connection, and traffic is usually encrypted from one end to the other. It means that your overzealous IT department or the Great Firewall of China can’t block any service. And yet, it also means that the person who operates the server can see all unencrypted traffic. That’s why I never recommend using a free VPN service or even paying for an account. Using a VPN doesn’t mean that you’ll be more secure on the internet. You’re just moving the risk down the VPN tunnel. Many VPN companies analyze your browsing habits, sell them to advertisers, inject their own ads on non-secure pages, steal your identity, log your internet traffic, share information with law enforcement and more. When it comes to VPN companies, trust no one. Looking at the protocols There are multiple ways to create a point-to-point VPN tunnel

Thousands of servers found leaking 750MB worth of passwords and keys

Enlarge (credit: Mike Pratt ) Thousands of servers operated by businesses and other organizations are openly sharing credentials that may allow anyone on the Internet to log in and read or modify potentially sensitive data stored online. In a blog post published late last week , researcher Giovanni Collazo said a quick query on the Shodan search engine returned almost 2,300 Internet-exposed servers running etcd , a type of database that computing clusters and other types of networks use to store and distribute passwords and configuration settings needed by various servers and applications. etcd comes with a programming interface that responds to simple queries that by default return administrative login credentials without first requiring authentication. The passwords, encryption keys, and other forms of credentials are used to access MySQL and PostgreSQL databases, content management systems, and other types of production servers. Collazo said he wrote a simple script that ran through the 2,284 etcd servers found in his Shodan search. Using the query GET http://:2379/v2/keys/?recursive=true , the script was designed to return all credentials stored on the servers in a format that would be easy for hackers to use. Collazo stopped the script after it collected about 750 megabytes of data from almost 1,500 of the servers. The haul included: Read 4 remaining paragraphs | Comments
