Sentinel, an interoperable network layer for distributed resources, has announced a partnership with Spider VPN, a UK based organization building a pro-privacy and open-sourced router.
SpiderVPN will be integrating the Sentinel dVPN on its firmware to enable its users to connect directly to a SpiderVPN ‘Enterprise-Grade’ Private Net running on the Sentinel Network.
The centralized SpiderVPN network is already achieving over 100TB of data usage per month with thousands of active users. These users will be migrated to SpiderVPN’s own provable private net on the Sentinel Network.
Why SpiderVPN is partnering with the Sentinel
Provability – The Sentinel dVPN network is a fully open-sourced blockchain-based dVPN network that provides users with the absolute assurance that there is no manipulation of encryption settings/routing protocols in the back-end. If anyone tries to manipulate the encryption settings during the node docker setup, the docker image will not even connect to the dAPP network
Increased Anonymity – The Sentinel dVPN network is one of the first VPN networks that plan to establish a relay system which would ensure that even the exit node would not know the user’s actual IP. In the future, users of SpiderVPN router can opt to tunnel their traffic through the provable relay network.
Monetization – Once the Sentinel network reaches mainnet, users can configure their router to be apart of the relay network (or an exit node if the user can avoid DCMA requests) and monetize on their unused bandwidth that will be consumed by active users on the Sentinel dVPN network (will happen after the switch to Tendermint).
