PostPosted: Sun 22 Mar 2020, 14:12    Post subject: Firejail BitTorrent Sandboxing Guide  

https://firejaildns.wordpress.com/2020/03/21/firejail-bittorrent-sandboxing-guide/

VPN users are doing so to keep their digital life private (as long as they do not use social media).

Here is another tool to your privacy toolbox : Firejail BitTorrent Sandboxing.

Latest Firejail Security Sandbox : https://sourceforge.net/projects/firejail/files/firejail/

Firejail DoH Proxy (FDNS) : https://github.com/netblue30/fdns/releases

Once everything is installed, start the proxy:

$ sudo fdns --daemonize

The proxy chooses a random server from a large list. All servers are non-censoring and non-logging, the vast majority non-corporate. Speed doesn’t seem to be an issue, but we do a very simple geolocation based on your computer’s timezone setting. We don’t send any packets to geolocation services. To track the DNS traffic, as a regular user run:

$ fdns --monitor

Time to start the browser and the bittorrent client:

$ firejail --dns=127.1.1.1 firefox &
$ firejail --dns=127.1.1.1 transmission-qt &

Firejail allows each sandbox to have its own DNS configuration. In this case we use the loopback address 127.1.1.1 where FDNS listens by default. All the DNS traffic from the two independent sandboxes goes through the proxy. The proxy will encrypt it and hopefully will bypass the censorship going on ISP network.

Sandbox security has been described in various other places. I’ll talk instead about DNS security. In FDNS we put in place a DNS firewall. It “understands” the DNS protocol and it can detect whether harmful traffic is being sneaked into your system. We also apply an adblock filter. Not only it reduces the DNS traffic, but it also eliminates a lot of trackers, malware, and bitcoin miners.

PostPosted: Sun 22 Mar 2020, 14:39    Post subject: Debian Testing Is Enabling WireGuard  

https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=Debian-Enables-WireGuard

Debian is the latest Linux distribution flipping on WireGuard within their kernel builds.

WireGuard is one of many prominent additions to the Linux 5.6 kernel. After being in development for years and being available as an out-of-tree DKMS module, Linux 5.6 and moving forward now have the code mainlined. The likes of Ubuntu 20.04 LTS are also shipping with WireGuard back-ported to their kernel.

Adding to the momentum for this open-source secure VPN tunnel, WireGuard is now enabled within Debian testing's kernel build. Up to now the WireGuard module was not being built as part of their kernel configuration. But now it's flipped on within their Kconfig that landed in Debian's Linux kernel tree overnight.

Limited to 2 GB monthly, Speedify Free is available for Debian.

Here's how :

This will download and install the correct version of Speedify for your system. If your system has a desktop environment, then this includes the Speedify user interface. In either case, it will include the Speedify command line interface to allow you to interact with Speedify from the terminal.

If the automatic install script did not work for your Debian based distribution, try the manual install instructions.
