Enhance Linux security with OpenSnitch, the powerful application-level firewall that effectively controls your outbound connections.
Sloth is a native Mac app that shows all open files and sockets in use by all running processes on your system. This makes it easy to inspect which apps are using which files and sockets.
If you use MacOS and you would like the functionality of Little Snitch but don’t want to pay for it, this might be an alternative to consider. I haven’t tested it, nor have I done a feature comparison between LuLu and Little Snitch, so this is just to note that it exists and nothing more.
In today’s connected world, it is rare to find an application or piece of malware that doesn’t communicate with a remote server.
LuLu is the free, open-source firewall that aims to block unknown outgoing connections, protecting your privacy and your Mac!

OpenVPN is a service to host your own VPN server, without using third-party servers.
A VPN is a secured connection between two networks, for example between your phone and your home.
In this tutorial, I’ll give you a step-by-step method to install it quickly on Raspberry Pi.
Bypass URLs that make you wait, do something or track you with this browser extension.
With a little time and energy, anyone can build a little computer that kills advertisements and makes browsing more manageable.
This post includes SCP examples. SCP or secure copy allows secure transferring of files between a local host and a remote host or between two remote hosts. It uses the same authentication and security as the Secure Shell (SSH) protocol from which it is based. SCP is loved for it’s simplicity, security and pre-installed availability.

We’ve used Etcher several times, mostly to make a bootable SD card for a Raspberry Pi or to put a bootable image of a Linux distribution onto a USB thumb drive. But we’re rethinking that now because we’ve read some concerns about privacy when using Etcher, or balenaEtcher as it is now called. … All we wanted to point out is that if you do have any concerns about using Etcher or balenaEtcher, there are alternatives, depending on which operating system you are using:
Introduction The scp command is used to copy files and directories between one computer to another. What is valuable about this utility is the fact that it used ssh to tunnel the copying. This means that the data is encrypted because it rides on ssh’s secure features.
A VPN (Virtual Private Network) protects your privacy by routing all your Internet traffic through an encrypted server that your ISP (or hackers) can’t see. Setting up and using a log-free VPN service from your PC desktop is straightforward enough, but other devices in your home such as your game console and set-top box don’t let you install VPN software.
One solution is to buy a router that can connect directly to a VPN service, protecting all the traffic on your home network a single stroke. But it could be cheaper (and simpler) just to route all your traffic through a Raspberry Pi that remains connected to the VPN at all times.
