Hardened OS turns Raspberry Pi into VPN gateway and firewall

August 17, 2016 // By Julien Happich
Infotecs has developed a cost-effective cyber security solution based on Raspberry Pi, turning the credit card-sized mini-PC into a fully-functional VPN gateway and firewall based on ViPNet technology.

The solution for the Raspberry 3 model B consists of a hardened Linux-based operating system and ViPNet Coordinator. In combination with Raspberry Pi, the image forms a hardware appliance. The solution provides highly secure protection against both external and internal threats – at a reasonable price. It may also be implemented to encrypt networked computer cash register systems in retail, or protect VoIP, printers, building infrastructures, and IP video cameras. Another example of an area which can benefit from the solution is telecommunications, where Infotecs enabled secure Raspberry Pi can provide secure and cost-efficient systems access.

ViPNet's unique symmetric key and peer-to-peer capabilities enable it to establish direct, secure, end-to-end connections without key exchanges or handshakes, thus reliably preventing Man-in-the-Middle (MITM) attacks and protecting from insider threats.
