I enjoy designing and breaking security. In a moment of madness, i wrote "designing security is playing chess alone, sure to outperform the opponent". The moment is no more but i still like the sentence.
Secure tunnel:
Yavipin stands for Yet Another VPN. I wrote a new secure tunnel even if numerous are already available because they don't satisfy my needs in usability, network efficiency or security. I release holes i know in the alternatives to bring awareness.
Protocol security:
