Include A VPN Service With Immunet

Recommended Posts

First of all for those that do not know what a VPN is here is a brief explanation of what it does.  

A VPN, or Virtual Private Network, allows you to create a secure connection using encryption protocols to another network over the Internet. VPNs can be used to access region-restricted websites, shield your browsing activity from hackers on public Wi-Fi, and much more.

These days VPNs are "really" popular, but not for the reasons they were originally created. They originally were just a way to connect business networks together using encryption protocols over the internet or allow you to securely access a business network from home.

VPNs essentially forward all your network traffic to an encrypted network, which is where the benefits, like accessing local network resources remotely and bypassing Internet censorship, come from.

Why would I need a VPN service?

Thanks to the Trump administration Congress passed legislation in Dec. of 2017 that allows your Internet Service Provider (ISP) to share or sell your browser history to third-party entities.

Also, a VPN makes on-line shopping, banking or any site where sensitive data is required to be submitted much more secure since all internet activity is encrypted within the VPN service. 

I know that including a VPN service would be a costly endeavor since new code would have to be written and infrastructure changes would have to be enacted.

For this reason I propose that a new Plus (paid) version be created to include an encrypted, entirely secure VPN service.

Just an idea.

Cheers, Ritchie...

Thanks for the positive feedback cyrille, appreciate that!

Since more and more people do on-line shopping, bill payments & banking I see a great future with the progression & improvement of VPN technology. Why not Immunet jumping on the band wagon too, so to speak, and perhaps stay in the forefront of this technology.

It could even prove be a money maker for Cisco if a viably secure "Immunet Plus VPN" version could be developed & deployed and enough people bought 1,2 ,3 or 5 year licenses!

Thank you Richie a VPN in Immunet is a great suggestion, and thanks Cyrille for the  +1 and being willing to pay for it.   I've escalated the suggestion and can only wait and see what comes of it.

Hi Rob! Thanks for sending this idea up the chain, that's cool!

I think that if this idea does come to fruition that in order for it to be ultimately monetarily successful would also have to include some sort of advertising campaign, to get the word out about the inclusion of a VPN service.

It's a hell wonderful idea! I promise I will share this great news when new Immunet will be in use with all my friends and tell them what to do to be secure and safe. You are really cool, guys! Are you going to create several VPN servers or only one?

I haven't heard back if this idea is actually in any sort of development phase so far. So, at the moment, your guess is as good as mine as to what sort of infrastructure change would take place if this new version ends up being rolled-out ParaiDarkHero.
