tinc is a Virtual Private Network (VPN) daemon that uses tunneling and encryption to create a secure private network between multiple hosts on the Internet. This tunneling allows VPN sites to share information with each other over the Internet without exposing any information.

Recent releases

  •  11 May 2014 22:32

    Release Notes: This release enables various compiler hardening flags by default. It has updated support for Solaris, allowing switch mode on Solaris11. Configuration will now also be read from a conf.d directory. It will try to reload /etc/resolv.conf after receiving SIGALRM. This release fiixes a potential routing loop when IndirectData or TCPOnly is used and broadcast packets are being sent, improves security with constant time memcmp and stricter use of OpenSSL's RNG functions, and has fixed all issues found by Coverity.

    •  19 Oct 2013 19:16

      Release Notes: This release starts authentication immediately on outgoing connections (useful for sslh), fixes a segfault when using Name = $HOST but when $HOST is not set, updates the build system and the documentation, and cleans up child processes left over from Proxy = exec.

      •  19 Aug 2013 10:06

        Release Notes: This release fixes the combination of Mode = router and DeviceType = tap, sets the $NAME variable in subnet-up/down scripts, gives an error when unknown options are given on the commandline, and correctly handles a space between a short commandline option and an optional argument.

        •  22 Apr 2013 20:17

          Release Notes: This release lets tinc drop packets that are forwarded via TCP if they are too big (CVE-2013-1428).

          •  03 Mar 2013 20:38

            Release Notes: This release improves the default device selection on FreeBSD and NetBSD when using switch mode. PMTU discovery is now also applied to VLAN-tagged traffic. The LocalDiscovery option now makes use of all addresses tinc is bound to. The PriorityInheritance option now also works with switch mode. A crash when using a SOCKS5 proxy has been fixed. There are minor improvements and clarifications in the documentation, support for tunemu on iOS devices is fixed, and tinc can now be cross-compiled with Android's NDK.
