Abstract:
    A more secure and more reliable free VPN, made by analyzing different other VPNs' security parameters. Allowing it to have immunity against all the privacy endangering threats.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    To help different consumers and organizations who want their internet data to be safe from online snooping and not vulnerable to be attacked As among 283 different VPN apps: 18% do not encrypt traffic 84% leak user data 38% reveal malware (A study by Data61/CSIRO, UC Berkeley, UNSW Sydney, and UCSI)
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   Public Wi-Fi users who don't want their private data to be leaked, People who want access to geo-restricted content, People who use online banking who are always vulnerable to get their username and password sniffed. All of them need their online traffic to be anonymous, encrypted and secure.
How will the solution works
    The solution will customize existing open source VPNs and create a new and secure open source VPN, which will be then installed in a raspberry pi device, and will act as a server that will create secure point-to-point or site-to-site connections in routed or bridged configurations and remote access facilities. Which will also be capable of traversing through NATs and firewalls.The solution will run using UDP or TCP transports and will create SSL tunnels for secure online browsing.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    In comparison with all the other VPN service providers, our solution will be different, as it will be based on the results of the security analyses of top 10 free VPNs' security parameters. Making our solution more secure and more reliable.
