Voodoo Volunteers

To stay ahead of new and evolving threats, cryptostorm has always looked out past standard network security tools. Here, we discuss and fine-tune our work in bringing newly-created capabilities and newly-discovered knowledge to bear as we keep cryptostorm in the forefront of tomorrow's network security landscape.

Voodoo Volunteers

Post by parityboy » Mon Nov 09, 2015 7:35 am

...and no, I'm not asking for victims volunteers for some dark, evil ritual...administrating Linux servers doesn't count, by the way.

Rather, having read the architecture and intentions (read: "dumbness") of voodoo nodes, I'm asking if there is scope for volunteers - as in us network members - to purchase, configure and make public our own voodoo nodes.

Since the nodes are designed to be essentially "thin edge servers" with no security dependencies/requirements, they could be treated almost the same as Tor bridges. Once the configuration has been nailed down, would this be something the team would open up to network members?

Not that I have an expectation of a reply {much as you received parityboy} but is there anything happening with this Voodoo thing, Mr/Ms VPN Service Provider?

Disappeared up the horses arse? Manic fantasy? Quietly being developed?.. or mebbe something in between? The occasional word would be nice. I get this service likes to differentiate itself from others in the no-bullshit sense (obvious exceptions aside), the focus on solid methods paramount, and that's cool. But where does that line end and the one indicating disinterest in your users/customers/annoying pricks begin? Impossible to say for sure from this side, I'd say, but ignoring your own 'forum helpers' does lend a little whiff leading to the latter.

I have to completely agree with "Veronica"
Apparently voodoo is not working:
