''' the big picture '''
+
ChaosVPN is a system to connect Hackers.
  
What is this all about?
+
Design principals include that it should be without Single Point of Failure, make usage of full encryption, use RFC1918 ip ranges, scales well on >100 connected networks and is being able to run on a embedded hardware you will find in our todays router.
  
mc.fly will some day write some stuff about it. In case you have awesome ideas just add them.
+
It should be designed that noone sees other peoples traffic.
  
 +
It should be mainly autoconfig as in that besides the joining node no administrator of the network should be in the need to acutally do something when a node joins or leaves.
  
 +
If you want to find a solution for a Network without Single Point of failure, has - due to Voice over IP - low latency and that noone will see other peoples traffic you end up pretty quick with a full mesh based network.
  
= ChaosVPN 2.0 =
+
Therefore we came up with the tinc solution. tinc does a fully meshed peer to peer network and it defines endpoints and not tunnels.
  
== redesign ==
+
ChaosVPN connects hacker wherever they are. We connect roadwarriors with their notebook. Servers, even virtual ones in Datacenters, Hackerhouses and hackerspaces. To sum it up we connect networks - maybe down to a small /32.
The Rebuild of the ChaosVPN became nessesary at some point, as the vermittlung was blackholed. Furthermore we would like to put live back to the ChaosVPN and use it to interconnect the hackerspaces.
 
  
So we thought its a good time to redesign stuff. We will climb up to tinc 1.0.13.
+
So there we are. ChaosVPN is working and it seems the usage increases, more nodes join in and more sevices pop up.

Note:
ChaosVPN is a VPN to connect Hackers and Hackerspaces - it does NOT provide anonymous internet access!
For this look at tor or other similar services.

It will also not help you to reach domains like .rdos, .lll, .clos or any other strange things supposed to be available on the "dark web".

Alternative: If you prefer BGP, you can also connect via https://dn42.net/, we are interconnected.

Goals

ChaosVPN is a system to connect Hackers.

Design principals include that it should be without Single Point of Failure, make usage of full encryption, use RFC1918 ip ranges, scales well on >100 connected networks and is being able to run on a embedded hardware you will find in our todays router.

It should be designed that noone sees other peoples traffic.

It should be mainly autoconfig as in that besides the joining node no administrator of the network should be in the need to acutally do something when a node joins or leaves.

If you want to find a solution for a Network without Single Point of failure, has - due to Voice over IP - low latency and that noone will see other peoples traffic you end up pretty quick with a full mesh based network.

Therefore we came up with the tinc solution. tinc does a fully meshed peer to peer network and it defines endpoints and not tunnels.

ChaosVPN connects hacker wherever they are. We connect roadwarriors with their notebook. Servers, even virtual ones in Datacenters, Hackerhouses and hackerspaces. To sum it up we connect networks - maybe down to a small /32.

So there we are. ChaosVPN is working and it seems the usage increases, more nodes join in and more sevices pop up.

For now, an overview picture of the currently connected nodes:

and a simple display of node-uptimes:

Howto join ChaosVPN?

You want to join ChaosVPN and experience the awesomeness of it?

There is a short HowTo how to better mesh your own nodes using ChaosVPN.
