    Clodo got a reaction from iggyvpn in Eddie Portable with Mono 4.4 - libMonoPosixHelper issue   ...
    In some Linux distro (ArchLinux for example), Eddie portable edition throw this error:
    Unhandled Exception: System.TypeInitializationException: An exception was thrown by the type initializer for Mono.Unix.Native.Syscall ---> System.DllNotFoundException: $mono_libdir/libMonoPosixHelper.so The issue occurs only with Portable edition and only if Mono 4.4 is installed.
    The quick solution is using the Portable (Mono required) version.

    Or edit the file /etc/mono/config and replace
    <dllmap dll="MonoPosixHelper" target="$mono_libdir/libMonoPosixHelper.so" os="!windows" />with
    <dllmap dll="MonoPosixHelper" target="libMonoPosixHelper.so" os="!windows" />TL; DR;

    /etc/mono/config have an hardcoded path in it, only for libMonoPosixHelper.so
    <configuration> <dllmap dll="i:cygwin1.dll" target="libc.so.6" os="!windows" /> <dllmap dll="libc" target="libc.so.6" os="!windows"/> <dllmap dll="intl" target="libc.so.6" os="!windows"/> <dllmap dll="intl" name="bind_textdomain_codeset" target="libc.so.6" os="solaris"/> <dllmap dll="libintl" name="bind_textdomain_codeset" target="libc.so.6" os="solaris"/> <dllmap dll="libintl" target="libc.so.6" os="!windows"/> <dllmap dll="i:libxslt.dll" target="libxslt.so" os="!windows"/> <dllmap dll="i:odbc32.dll" target="libodbc.so" os="!windows"/> <dllmap dll="i:odbc32.dll" target="libiodbc.dylib" os="osx"/> <dllmap dll="oci" target="libclntsh.so" os="!windows"/> <dllmap dll="db2cli" target="libdb2_36.so" os="!windows"/> <dllmap dll="MonoPosixHelper" target="$mono_libdir/libMonoPosixHelper.so" os="!windows" /> <dllmap dll="i:msvcrt" target="libc.so.6" os="!windows"/> <dllmap dll="i:msvcrt.dll" target="libc.so.6" os="!windows"/> <dllmap dll="sqlite" target="libsqlite.so.0" os="!windows"/> <dllmap dll="sqlite3" target="libsqlite3.so.0" os="!windows"/> <dllmap dll="libX11" target="libX11.so.6" os="!windows" /> <dllmap dll="libgdk-x11-2.0" target="libgdk-x11-2.0.so.0" os="!windows"/> <dllmap dll="libgtk-x11-2.0" target="libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0" os="!windows"/> <dllmap dll="libXinerama" target="libXinerama.so.1" os="!windows" /> <dllmap dll="libcairo-2.dll" target="libcairo.so.2" os="!windows"/> <dllmap dll="libcairo-2.dll" target="libcairo.2.dylib" os="osx"/> <dllmap dll="libcups" target="libcups.so.2" os="!windows"/> <dllmap dll="libcups" target="libcups.dylib" os="osx"/> <dllmap dll="i:kernel32.dll"> <dllentry dll="__Internal" name="CopyMemory" target="mono_win32_compat_CopyMemory"/> <dllentry dll="__Internal" name="FillMemory" target="mono_win32_compat_FillMemory"/> <dllentry dll="__Internal" name="MoveMemory" target="mono_win32_compat_MoveMemory"/> <dllentry dll="__Internal" name="ZeroMemory" target="mono_win32_compat_ZeroMemory"/> </dllmap> <dllmap dll="gdiplus" target="libgdiplus.so" os="!windows"/> <dllmap dll="gdiplus.dll" target="libgdiplus.so" os="!windows"/> <dllmap dll="gdi32" target="libgdiplus.so" os="!windows"/> <dllmap dll="gdi32.dll" target="libgdiplus.so" os="!windows"/> </configuration> It's a Mono bug. Fedora removed it:
    http://pkgs.fedoraproject.org/cgit/rpms/mono.git/commit/?id=cc7b8dcb9f02810b0322b24e8ac63581d9be8146
    I contacted the ArchLinux Mono maintainer about this issue.

    This issue can't be fixed in Eddie/AirVPN client, because the above config overwrites the config bundled in portable edition (mkbundle --config)

    There are a lot of improvements that can be done (viewer/editor of rules running on the system, persistent rules across boot, etc).
    I think it can be an interesting community project, a free and open source alternative to expensive firewall software.

    DNS lookups are currently not used in Eddie. Eddie downloads a manifest file with the list of servers, and contacts them directly with the entry-IP address in it.
    I don't understand why you need to download config files: Eddie already builds them internally, and the list is updated in realtime.
    What you mean with 'login requirement' ? Storing login & password with the remember option is (security) the same as having .ovpn files with the user keys inside.
    Thinking about that. Maybe it's useful, but it's difficult to create an UI for settings options like that. Eddie removes the current iptables rules and creates new rules when Network Lock is activated under Linux.
    Otherwise, by default, people connects to VPN and Eddie doesn't touch the original iptables.
    If this kind of options is inside the Network Lock feature, it can be implemented, otherwise it's difficult to understand priority (insert or append in current iptables rules).
    Can be advanced options. 
    But you use the work "Temporally"... for example, if I set disable_ipv6 to 1 and then I restore it to 0, there are a lot of issues, like route loss.
    For this reason, ONLY in Eddie under Linux, if IPv6 is enabled, Eddie doesn't turn it off automatically, but asks the user to do it.
    It's possibile to implement any kind of tweaking, but it MUST be reversible (applied only during the connection or life of the app, restored at end).

    As explained by zhang888, if a feature can be a benefit for all users, it can be implemented in Eddie.
    Otherwise, supporting an enormous list of features that only a little percent of users will use (or understand) is not a recommended approach: it requires UI, docs, testing the support in any OS & versions, and is the road to bloatware.
     
    But if someone have a necessity, it MUST be possibile to do it.
     
    So, I think that the best approach is allowing this kind of feature requests by adding specific events linked to external script, or maybe think about a plugin-system in Eddie to allow people to implement feature extensions.
    When a community-script or extension reaches stability and people like it, it can be moved inside the official Eddie.
    I think this is the best way. But it requires collaboration.

    Clodo got a reaction from rickjames in The Cold Hard Truth Behind VPNs? - Whonix Blog article   ...
    I think there is a lot of confusion in that article.
    Tor and VPN are different products.
    And it's not correct to list features where Tor can 'beat' VPN and overlook features where Tor loses the comparison:
    - Tor is TCP only
    - Port forwarding is not possible in Tor
    - Tor is not protocol agnostics: Torrent/P2P is not recommended.
    - VPN has good speed with P2P
    - VPN has good latency in games
    - Several Tor exit-nodes block so many ports and are so overcrowded that Tor usage is viable only for moderate web browsing and very few other protocols.
     
    It is assumed that VPN services are used for anonymity. There are also other reasons:
    - bypass throttling
    - bypass censorship
    - need of port forwarding or in general a public IP
    - wrap UDP in TCP (ISPs which block outgoing UDP are not so rare)
     
      True. But not AirVPN, that allows OpenVPN usage and has also an open-source client (Eddie).
     
      It's really Tor that avoid this kind of Data Collection Techniques? Or it's the firefox extensions in Tor Browser Bundle?
    This is by design, as a neutral VPN provider, AirVPN never alter customers traffic.
     
      Honestly I did not study the paper deeply.
    But, after a first quick reading, the targets are guesstimate websites requested (NOT viewing traffic data), and there are a lot of assumptions in the paper, like The attacker knows all the pages the victim is going to retrieve.
     
      Same as point 2.
     
      Same as point 2.
     
      I don't understand.
     
      A shot in the dark.
     
      This campaign shows how much NSA and intelligence agencies fears VPN services and how NSA is impotent against their ciphers. That's why NSA needed a campaign to steal directly keys.
     
      True, inevitable.
    The attacker needs the access to the VPN node, and can only sniff the running sessions traffic on that node.
    AirVPN servers are clean/plain, dedicated Linux Debian stable machine with OpenVPN daemon. There isn't any database of customers, any log (not even by the OS).
     
     
      True by design. Tor and VPN are different product.
    Remember, customers can run VPN and Tor -inside- the VPN, and gain advantage of both.
     
      True, multi-hopping in the same VPN provider can be useless, for this reason AirVPN doesn't support it (but you can do it easily for didactic purposes).

    Clodo got a reaction from giganerd in NFC Ring   ...
    In a smartphone, the normal security about unlocking is very low: PINs have only few chars. Gesture provides low security as well.
     
    The problem is that people can't use a typable password: if the phone is locked and a call is incoming, user needs to digit the password to answer the call.
     
    An interesting solution I tested successfully: NFC Ring. http://nfcring.com/
     
    Note that it requires a smartphone with NFC reader.
     
    The ring stores two NFC: in one of them I put a long password that I use to unlock my phone, just with a touch of the ring behind the phone. The other NFC tag can contain, for example, a bitcoin address.

    Hello!
    As you can see, we have deeply modified our system: new forum, new account processor, new support implementation and more.
    The forum enables you to use several functions that were previously unavailable, including the repeatedly required PMs between members, while the new account processor is much more flexible, eliminates some irritating defects of the previous one and offers additional features. The new support system allows us to follow and handle your requests and tickets more quickly and effectively.
    Don't hesitate to post your feedback if you wish so!
