Building A Raspberry Pi VPN Part Two: Creating An Encrypted Client Side 

You built a functional VPN server! Now what?

Welcome to Part Two of1 ReadWrite’s Raspberry Pi VPN server tutorial!

By now, it’s pretty apparent that turning your Raspberry Pi into a Virtual Private Network is an all-evening activity. But as security flaws further compromise our Internet lives, it feels increasingly worth it to have a secure server on your side. That way, you’re free to write emails and transfer data without worrying about what or whom might be intercepting it as it travels from your computer to the Web…

Building A Raspberry Pi VPN Part One: How And Why To Build A Server

Trust no one and build a server that encrypts your Web data from prying eyes.

I read several different tutorials and cobbled together the results into this semi-coherent tutorial for setting up a VPN on Raspberry Pi, which even I can understand, complete with the why behind the how. Most prominently, I relied on Eric Jodoin’s VPN tutorial for experts, and dumbed it down for me.

So follow me down the cryptography rabbit hole and learn that no matter how paranoid you are, whoever came up with the methods to generate VPNs was even more so…

Raspberry Pi Web Server

Convert your 35$ Raspberry Pi into a Web Server and host your own Web site

Strongly recommend using a Raspberry Pi 2 for this project. A Pi based webserver will work with the older Pi models but might be slow.

A note on Security : Sharing a website / files on the Internet requires that you make your Pi Web server to be “Internet facing” – by forwarding port 80 from your router. But before doing so, you should research and be aware of the attendant security risks and some of the measures needed to address them. A foot note at the bottom of the guide will give you a few pointers.
