This category lists articles about MyCrypNet (tutorials, explanations…).
A MyCrypNet network is made of MyCrypNet accesses installed on different devices.
The MyCrypNet accesses identify the devices on the MyCrypNet network.
A devices can have several accesses. It can be used by several users with, each, his(her) own MyCrypNet access for him(her) alone. But also, a common access can be installed on the device, available for all the users of the device.
Accesses in a MyCrypNet network can be delegated.
How to install MyCrypNet
Here are the tutorials allowing to install a MyCrypNet access on the main operating systems:
If you want to adapt the accesses configuration to particular networks constraints (firewalls, routers…) You can edit the configurations with the help of the following tutorials:
If you want to delegate parts of your MyCrypNet network, here is the tutorial showing you how to do:
And here is the tutorial with the provided options to the delegated:
If you want to detach completely an access from the network, isolate it from its network to use it as a simple anonymous tunnel, here is the tutorial:
If one of your devices is compromised, lost or stolen, it is strongly recommended to revoke the access installed on it to avoid a potential intrusion on the network.
Here is the revocation tutorial:
If you want to reinforce, even more, the access security, you can add a two-factor authentication to it:
Also, if you want to reinforce the accesses management interface (available on Limawi) and your payment informations handled by Limawi as well, you can add a two-factor authentication too:
If you want the installation in a Linux environnent with command lines, take a look here.
You must have a MyCrypNet access first. You can buy one here or ask a delegation to someone who bought one.
Step 1: Download and install the software
From a package repository. For “Debian-like”:
sudo apt-get install openvpn resolvconf network-manager-openvpn-gnome
Step 2: Download the settings file
Download the MyCrypNet.conf file and put it into a dedicated folder. MyCrypNet.conf
Make sure to keep this folder in a safe place on your disk.
Step 3: Download the key and certificate
Download the two settings files (vpn.cert and vpn.key) from the “Your apps” page or the “Delegated apps” page and put them together into the same folder as the MyCrypNet.conf file.
Step 4: Open the configuration interface
Go to the Gnome menu and select “VPN Off”.
Click on “VPN Settings”.
Step 5: Load the configuration
Add a VPN configuration by clicking on the “+” on the “VPN” section.
Select “Import from file…” and look for the MyCrypNet.conf file.
Sometimes GNOME® bugs and force you to save the configuration (by clicking on the “save” button) in order to make it work.
