Projects / eurephia


eurephia is an authentication plug-in for OpenVPN. It enhances the OpenVPN authentication process by using user name and password authentication in addition to SSL certificates. If too many failed attempts are registered, the user account and/or IP address will be blocked. For Linux servers, iptables support is also included, which can be used to restrict each user's network access through the VPN channel. OpenVPN 2.2 or later is required.

          Release Notes: Because the openvpn-2.1_rc21 release and the eurephia patch changed the certificate digest formatting (from upper case to lower case), this release makes eurephia compatible with both older and newer versions of OpenVPN. In addition, a few more bugfixes and enhancements were added.

          •  05 Oct 2009 20:16

            Release Notes: All main features are developed and stabilized. This is probably the last beta release. Completion of the documentation is the last missing part before a final release.
