Cryptostorm on Kali Linux 2.0 {video tutorial}

Postby cryptostormuser » Mon Aug 31, 2015 2:59 am

{direct link: cryptostorm.org/kali}


Several people have requested my assistance in setting up cryptostorm on the recent Kali Linux 2.0 distro. Of course one can simply use the command line, however, without a total reconfiguration of your iptables, and turning off ipv6, there is a complete dox via DNS blowback. Additionally, there is no "onion browser magic jumpin off." It is also labor intensive to set up each and every node, for those that like to switch on the fly as I do. Below is a link to the youtube video I made on the issue. Also works for the Voodoo network.

Step 1: bring your local packages & applications up to current versions

Code: Select all

Update kali source.list http://docs.kali.org/general-use/kali-linux-sources-list-repositories
apt-get clean && apt-get update && apt-get upgrade -y && apt-get dist-upgrade -y
apt-get install network-manager-openvpn-gnome
apt-get install network-manager-vpnc-gnome
apt-get install network-manager-vpnc


Step 2: grab the most current cryptostorm configuration file

Select 1_4.config file from here, or from the github repository collection


Step 2(b): grab the most recent public certificate for cryptostorm's server verification

Select the ca2.crt file (which is already pre-included in the 1.4 configs, but is also available separately for verification, etc.).


Step 3: input your (hashed) token value to authenticate to cryptostorm's network

Username = SHA512-hashed token
Password = anything you want


Step 4 (optional, sorta): additional leak protection for your session

Remember to turn off ipv6 for leakback protection

It is also advised to personalize iptables if you're feeling brave.


Step 5: you're safely on cryptostorm :-)

Enjoy

I installed the above packages then ended up using openvpn via a root shell to get this guide to work.

My experience running via openvpn from a root shell is a dns leakback dox. It can be handled with an iptables tweek and use of alternative dns providers, however, I don't get that when running through the network manager in the video here. It relies on cryptostorm. I've ran tests on 5 different kali boxes. I'm curious what token/crt pickup command you're using from cli to avoid that.
