Global Socket

Connect like there is no firewall. Securely.

Project maintained by hackerschoice Hosted on GitHub Pages — Theme by mattgraham

Global Socket allows two workstations on different private networks to communicate with each other. Through firewalls and through NAT - like there is no firewall.

An often used example is to start SSHD on a firewalled workstation:

root@ALICE:~# gsocket -s ExampleSecretChangeMe /usr/sbin/sshd -D

…and then access this hidden service from anywhere else in the world:

bob@BOB:~$ gsocket -s ExampleSecretChangeMe ssh bob@gsocket
gsocket: =Secret         :"ExampleSecretChangeMe"
gsocket: =Encryption     : SRP-AES-256-CBC-SHA-End2End (Prime: 4096 bits)
