March 23, 2022

Sentinel View 1.0 Release

Highly anticipated release of Sentinel Viev have come to life. It wasn’t a breeze due to issues with time-expensive database queries. The upgrade was conducted in spirit of optimizing the ever-growing database. Although Martin Prudek, the author of major changes is not part of the team, his effort left everlasting mark on the project. Another former colleague, Vojta Myslivec, have been unforgettable helping hand in regard to the database end and it’s improvement.

What is the Sentinel View

It is our pleasure to provide the data that flow to our database as part of Sentinel project. That is what the Sentinel View is made for. It is able to provide Turris users with data collected specifically on their device or from devices that run Sentinel instance all over the world.

  • new responsive front-end

  • option to filter data on passed intervals

  • basic categories upgrade and more data

  • My Device page

New data, new appearance

The look of Sentinel View have been upgraded. Not only that it looks way better but also behaves responsive, improves small screen menu and provides better table view on mobile screen.

Heise Online: "Open-Source-Adventskalender: Turris-Router, sichere Schaltzentrale im Heimnetz."

Quelloffene Software ist gut; wenn sie auf offener Hardware läuft, ist das noch besser. Das dachte wohl auch das experimentierfreudige Entwicklerteam bei der tschechischen Registry cz.nic vor acht Jahren und begann damit, am Design eines eigenen Heimrouters zu arbeiten, gebaut in der Tschechischen Republik und bestückt mit OpenWrt, einer für CPE Router (oder andere embedded sytems) entwickelten Linux Distribution. So entstand das Erfolgsprojekt Turris.

Das ursprüngliche Motiv für das Projekt war mehr Sicherheit für Heimnetze durch eine verteilte Firewall. Nur war auf dem Markt kein Heimrouter zu finden, mit dem sich die cz.nic-Idee sicher realisieren ließ und der zugleich die längst bekannten sicheren Standards IPv6 und DNSSEC unterstützten. Daher bauten sie den ersten kleinen Turris, gewissermaßen eine Hardware-Probe, und gab ihn an cz-Nic-Nutzer aus, die interessiert waren. Der kleine blaue Turris wurde die Keimzelle des späteren Turris Omnia.

Day: 22.08.2021
Start time: 14:30
Duration: 01:00
Room: HS4

In his own words:

"Turris Sentinel is a network security oriented project maintaining a network of HoneyPot-like probes running on Turris routers. In the last few years we developed an OpenSource framework for DataProcessing and explored several message queuing and storage technologies which powers our data processing pipelines. In this lecture I would like to talk about our experiences with Redis, InfluxDB and PostgreSQL databases - their pros and cons and their position in the ecosystem."

Turris Academy no.6 - PaKon for parents

July 7, 2021

Turris Academy no.6 - PaKon for parents - 13.07.2021 at 5PM with Radovan Hosek
Join the stream: https://lnkd.in/epSm-7z

Our Sales Manager Radovan Hosek will introduce PaKon, a part of the security stack on Turris routers. In our previous Turris Academy sessions were covered several topic: unboxing, secure connection via OpenVPN, WireGuard and others.
Now it’s a time to show another feature this time focusing on security - PaKon.

In Radovan's own words:


"This session will show a device connectivity monitoring service - PaKon.
Admin of Turris router can see and check time, date and data transmission of any device connected to Turris router. This can be an application case from real life, let’s call it family device monitoring in my case.

I’m a father of 2 boys (8 &12 years old). During COVID-19 country lock down they had online education for many weeks. But – what did they do on internet during school hours? PaKon gave me an answer. For sure, there is a strong privacy for device/user as well."

Turris Academy #5 Schnapps

June 28, 2021

Turris Academy no.5 - Schnapps - 30.06.2021 @ 5PM with Michal Hrusecky.
 
Turris routers have a unique functionality thanks to using Btrfs
filesystem. They can take snapshots of the currently running system and you can return to those anytime later. You can have multiple snapshots, move between them freely, export them or even automatically back them up.
In this episode, we will show you not only what can be done easily
with press of the button (either on hardware itself or in WebUI), but
also how to get even more functionality from CLI.
