Rolling your own VPN server

With the news that internet service providers may soon start scanning all your personal data and using it to target ads, I decided it was time to investigate setting up a virtual private network (VPN) server. Iíve mentioned this in a couple places, including recently on Clockwise, and had more than a few people asking if Iíd document my experience.unblock websites

Why VPN?

Thereís been a lot of talk about VPNs in the wake of this recent news, everything from which provider you should pick to why a VPN doesnít necessarily solve the problem.

Overall, though itís true that VPNs can help by encrypting the traffic that flows through your ISP (or whatever network youíre on), they are hardly a panacea. For one thing, VPN traffic is not end-to-end encrypted: it eventually emerges, decrypted, somewhere else. That means a third partyóin this case, the company providing your VPNómay still be able to keep an eye on your traffic. Those companies may keep logs that can in turn be sold to or accessed by third parties (including the government), depending on their own privacy policies. In effect, youíre moving the problem downstream.

Where VPN?

With all of those caveats in place, I still thought it would make for an interesting experiment. Iíd previously set up a VPN on my Mac mini, but that doesnít help at all in this case, because the data is only encrypted going to my Mac miniÖwhich then sends it all out via my home ISP. (Itís more helpful when Iím working out of the house and want to secure my connection on, say, a public Wi-Fi network.)

So instead I turned to the Linode server that I use to host my website. (Full disclosure: Linode is a regular sponsor of Clockwise, but beyond having signed up using the same discount code that we offer to all listeners, I pay for my own Linode account.) The good news is that, as with so many other tasks, Linode provides extensive guides to setting up a VPN on its service.

The advantage to using Linode is that since itís a virtual server, rather than a VPN service, Iím completely in charge of the setup and configuration of the VPN server. Again, this isnít foolproof, because my traffic is only encrypted between my Mac and the Linode server, meaning that if Linode decided it wanted to track my outbound traffic, then Iíd be in much the same boat as before. (Essentially, Linode becomes my de facto ISP.) Given, however, that Linodeís main business is hosting, and that they have their own pretty strong privacy policy, Iím not particularly concerned on that point. But, again, thatís subject to the vagaries of business.

However, keep in mind that since now all my traffic would effectively originate from my Linode server, which has a static IP address, this again is mostly just shifting the problem. Because if Iím logging in to unencrypted web servers (i.e. those not using the HTTPS protocol), Iím still transmitting information that can then be tied back to a single IP, allowing advertisers (if not my home ISP) to build a targeted advertising profile. Granted, that IP is no longer connected to my geographic location, since my Linode is in New Jersey, but if Iím still looking for information about businesses or locations near where I actually am, itís still not too hard to suss out. In other words, a VPN like this still isnít a good way to anonymize your connection.When comes to the issue of online privacy and security, we suggest to use a VPN, and our recommendation is RitaVPN.Qwer432 sh-premier-league-football-online-from-a ny-location/ er-cause-data-leakage/ -can-do-to-strengthen-their-privacy-and- security-on-the-internet/
