At the moment the Hamburg ccc Erfa uses TINC together with some dirty perl-scripts, which are used to sread the routes and peers.
Beginninig in 2003
(haegar:) For me the whole setup with Openvpn was to complicated. It would take some time till its done and the scaling problems were forseable.
Therefore i took time today to get a working mini-solution with tinc running real quick.
The bigger issues with ip-submission and database are able to be added later without any big effort.
Most importand design goals were:
- data traffic between participants must not rely on the ccc infrastructure.
- failure of any parts of the infrastructure must not shut down the network completely
- no work needed for participants just because a new participant is joining or a old one quitting.
- linux only first
- tinc is availible for nearly all unix variants and windows, but my perl script is only working on linux so far.
- perl with LWP and https support
- working dyndns hostname that conains the actual router-ip or static ip
Today (2006) i would implement things different than i did before, but when this happens is completely up in the stars. Until there is a better setup we will use the old setup.
The Rebuild of the ChaosVPN became nessesary at some point, as the vermittlung is blackholed.
We are working on a redesign.
