The use of services provided by Limawi, especially MyCrypNet.
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.
Session across domains
A Limawi session is transfered across Limawi subdomains using OpenID.
The session is started from the domain limawi.io and can be extended to the subdomain blog.limawi.io.
The session on blog.limawi.io is normally started when a session exists on limawi.io using a cookie asking for a redirection to fetch the OpenID credentials.
These sessions are automatically checked every minute with a client ajax polling. The client ajax polling on blog.limawi.io checks if the session is on the way on the two domains.
On the page “Profile”, “Security”, all your sessions are listed. You can easily revoke them via a “Close” button appending to each session.
These sessions list shows the IP used to access the session and when the session was started.
On the most a session lasts on the client for a maximum of 8 hours.
On the server the session is revoked after 8 hours of inactivity.
