Quick VPN endpoint all to yourself using your Azure (or AWS) subscription based on the Trail of Bits Algo project:

If you’re on Windows, fire up WSL to make your life easier then do:

  1. Make sure you’ve configured the Azure CLI. That will ensure that an azureProfile.json exists.
  2. git clone https://github.com/trailofbits/algo.git
  3. cd algo
  4. python3 -m virtualenv --python="$(command -v python3)" .env && source .env/bin/activate && python3 -m pip install -U pip virtualenv && python3 -m pip install -r requirements.txt algodeps
  5. Edit config.cfg to suit. At the very least you’ll want to configure users right at the top of the file.
  6. run ./algo and answer the questions.
  7. Done.

            "\"#        and ensure that all your traffic passes through the VPN.      #\"",
            "\"#                     Local DNS resolver                   #\"",

        "    ",
        "    \"#      Shell access: ssh -F configs/ duff        #\"\n"
  1. Then, download the wireguard client for your OS.
  2. Navigate to configs/ (replacing the IP address with your cloud IP).
  3. There should be a config file for each of the clients you defined in step 5. Copy the config file to the machine that you are going to use the VPN client on.
  4. Then just open the Wireguard client, open the configuration file and click “Activate”.
