Fonzy Posted April 3, 2009 Share Posted April 3, 2009 So I didn't want to set up an SSH server that's running 24/7 running my electric bill up even higher... So I started searching for alternative ways to get a secure tunnel, I thought hmm... wouldn't it be nice if there was a service on the internet that allowed me to tunnel through using a secured server, well I found one ... and the cool thing is that it's only a few bucks a month, it would cost me more than that on my electric bill, to set up an SSH server. The service is called GoTrusted and it establishes a VPN connection with GoTrusted's domain and tunnels all my traffic with SSL 128 bit encryption. It also hides my real ip address and assigns me a 'public' ip address. There's zero config too, just install their software and connect to your secure tunnel and start your browser. Now my question is what are the pros/cons of this compared to setting up my own SSH server at home, in the way of security, because like I said for me it's obviously more convenient for me to do this. I mean is this just as secure or any cons to this over your own tunnel ? (I don't need free wifi, I have a WWAN card so I can go anywhere) Would this type of service be more exploitable? Would Darren's Pineapple be able to steal my cookies? I actually, in my opinion wished they were using RSA 128 bit, but SSL is cool too.... And is SSL any less secure than Secure Shell ... I may be a bit behind in the times on this, is SSL being cracked at all ? Would love a reply back from Darren or Matt, but anyone else with some thoughts on this is cool too. I myself can't find any security holes with using this, but then again I don't build pineapples to steal people's traffic ...lol ;) ;) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
