+----------------------------------------------------------------------------------+ | VPN, privacy & Firefox (+ other Gecko browsers)* rev. 0.3.11 | +----------------------------------------------------------------------------------+ ========== VPN section ========== + You can try free OpenVPN configs or Softether: + OpenVPN: - OpenVPN - you can edit configs (.ovpn) with notepad to change encryption (line 88 - standard is not so good: AES-128-CBC - try AES-256-CBC instead) - OpenVPN - you can edit configs (.ovpn) with notepad to add option "block-outside-dns" (for example in line 104) to avoid DNS leaks - OpenVPN - if you add option "block-outside-dns" you don't need (Simple) DNSCrypt (my testing suggest that when you using OpenVPN without "block-outside-dns" option together with Simple DNSCrypt you are affected by DNS leaks) (Simple DNSCrypt not working for me, anyway this needs further testing...) - OpenVPN - you can edit configs (.ovpn) with notepad to add option "--remote-cert-tls server" (for example in line 21) to avoid "Man-in-the-Middle" attack https://openvpn.net/index.php/open-source/documentation/howto.html#secnotes [OpenVPN 2.1 and above] - https://www.vpnbook.com/ (few free OpenVPN configs) - http://www.vpngate.net/en/ (a lot of free OpenVPN configs) + OpenVPN manuals: - https://community.openvpn.net/openvpn/wiki/Openvpn24ManPage - https://community.openvpn.net/openvpn/wiki/Openvpn23ManPage - https://openvpn.net/index.php/open-source/documentation/howto.html - https://openvpn.net/index.php/open-source/documentation/security-overview.html + Softether: - http://www.vpngate.net/en/ - you need good server with strong encryption (standard is really bad: RC4 MD5) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RC4#Security https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MD5#Security - I recommend to use DNSCrypt to avoid DNS leaks (check your DNS leaks - links are below) - http://www.softether.org/1-features/3._Security_and_Reliability + Softether disadvantages: - logging policy: 2 weeks [default] - when you will be disconnected then your IP will be exposed (there is no 'kill switch' feature) - DNS leaks... ========== Browser section ========== + Secure your privacy in Firefox: - by using addons like in IceCat [https://directory.fsf.org/wiki/IceCat] I mean: Adblock Plus (ABP), Disable WebRTC, Fat-Free Fox, No Resource URI Leak, NoScript, Privacy Badger, uBlock Origin (uBO), uMatrix etc. Additionally you can add: CanvasBlocker, Disconnect, FoxyProxy, Https Everywhere, Privacy Settings, Random Agent Spoofer.
