  • Is there any benefit to using IPsec over the default when setting up Algo on iOS? | 2021-04-09
    I am setting up an algo so I don't spew my DNS queries every time I grab a bagel, and noticed the instructions mention IPsec. Is that an old option, or is there a specific reason someone would want to opt into IPsec for their algo instance?

    I use almost the same approach.

    I also limit access to just one IP, which is a VPN server hosted on a different cloud provider.

    From what I've seen over the past few years, there are two really good options when it comes to your own VPN. The first one is Algo. It uses IPsec and works with common cloud providers. I used Algo with DigitalOcean for almost two years and I really enjoyed it. At most, I was paying only $5 a month and the performance was amazing. The second best option is using Google Cloud with OpenVPN. HERE is a great video with more information on that.

    Have you considered AlgoVPN [0], I've not used it personally but heard positive reviews from those who have. They claim to be "set of Ansible scripts that simplify the setup of a personal WireGuard".

  • PSA: self-hosting Bitwarden is NOT a security feature | 2021-03-08
    Agree with you. Rather than providing just enough info to self-host BitWarden, there should be an idiot-proof way to deploy it. See AlgoVPN for an example of this | 2021-03-08
    As an example of other projects taking this approach, look at Algo VPN. Their project takes pride in empowering your “lemmings” to easily deploy a solution (even the provisioning of the IaaS,instance, if using a cloud provider) for a problem that has historically been fraught with so many pitfalls that even most professionals didn’t get it right- meaning VPN services. A very high-stakes service- akin to a password vault in some ways- though more complex in almost every way. But “lemmings” can do it now

  • VPN setup? | 2021-02-17
    If you haven’t already looked into what to use on the other side to terminate the VPN in AWS (or wherever) I highly recommend AlgoVPN for both the ease of provisioning and deployment and the “pretty darn hard to deploy it insecurely” factor. It supports only IKEv2 and WireGuard very deliberately
