Mesh

Setting Up CJDNS on pfSense

CJDNS is an IPv6 encrypted mesh networking technology, used in Hyperborea and other mesh networks around the world. I particularly like the way it’s conceived, with end-to-end encryption, distributed IP address allocation, DHT-based source routing and MPLS-like label switching. It has several interesting use cases, but I wanted to set it up in my pfSense gateway VM so I can use it as a distributed VPN of sorts. This could be useful to be able to access my systems from anywhere while traveling, or where my team can share access to each other’s Cloud Foundry labs, particularly when we travel.
