Version 1.5b Castle in the Sky
lecture: Internet Cube
Let's Build together a Free, Neutral and Decentralized Internet
Two years after the invitation to build your own iSP at 30C3, I'd like to invite everyone to take part in building a better Internet with the Internet Cube project.
At the crossroads of DIY Internet Access, Open Source Hardware and Self-Hosting Free Software, "Internet Cube" is the living proof everyone can regain control on their data.
Using a public and static VPN endpoint provided by a neutral and privacy-friendly ISP, the Cube enables the user to have her services accessible from everywhere simply by plugging it to the Internet.
Assorted with a wireless antenna, the Cube operates as an ambulant cleaning gateway to the Internet, getting rid of whatever stupid thing a commercial ISP would be doing on the network like port blocking or service prioritization.
There are many other use cases enabled by already existing Y U NO HOST applications like turning the Cube into a PirateBox or a Tor gateway.
When the first prototype came to life, someone said "Well, congratulations guys, you've just built an actual working FreedomBox" and I believe that what we built is more than that.
