ZeroTier – Simple Software Defined Networking

ZeroTier One is our open source endpoint service for Windows, Macintosh, Linux, BSD, Android, and (very soon) iOS. It lets you join ZeroTier virtual networks like VPNs but with the ease of IRC or Slack channels. The download page also contains basic instructions to get you started.

Step 2: Join a Virtual Network

After installing and starting the service, join network 8056c2e21c000001. This is an open public network that we use for demonstration and testing. Once you get an IP address, visit http://earth.zerotier.net/ and you should see a welcome page.

Step 3: Connect Another Device

Go to another computer, phone, tablet, or cloud server and join the same network. Note the IP addresses of both devices. Now try pinging, ssh’ing, or otherwise connecting between them.

Step 4: Leave the Network

If you don’t want to stick around on Earth, just leave. That’s it! The network’s virtual port will disappear and your computer is no longer connected. Read on to learn more, including how to create networks of your own.

EFF Announces Certbot Client For Let’s Encrypt

Peter Eckersley, the staff technologist for the Electronic Frontier Foundation, writes: EFF has just launched Certbot, which is the next iteration of the Let’s Encrypt client. It’s a powerful tool for obtaining TLS/SSL certificates from Let’s Encrypt, and (if you wish) automatically installing them to enable and tune HTTPS on your website. It’s extensible, and supports a rapidly-growing range of server software. As of last week more than three million certificates had been issued, according to EFF.org, and despite a new name and host, Certbot “will still get certificates from Let’s Encrypt and automatically configure HTTPS on your webserver…. We expect OS packages to begin using the Certbot name in the next few weeks as well.”

Original ‘Doom’ Level Remade in the New ‘Doom’

An anonymous reader writes:
After the new Doom was released yesterday, Vice discovered its SnapMap feature had already been used to recreate one of the levels from the original Doom. “The original Doom thrived on a strong modding community, and id is supporting that tradition here in a great way.” Sharing videos for both the old and new versions of the E1 M2 nuclear plant map, Vice also applauded the interface for the new SnapMap tool, which lets users design their own levels, even on consoles. SnapMap includes tools for arranging objects, placing enemies, and even triggering events when a player reaches certain points in a level. “It’s incredibly easy to use considering how much you can do, and so far I’ve had little trouble uploading, downloading, and browsing for user-made levels.”
Newegg is also offering a $15 discount code for PC, Xbox One, or PS4 versions.

A BeagleBone on a Chip

The current crop of ARM single board computers have a lot in common. Everything from the Odroid to the Raspberry Pi are built around Systems on a Chip, a piece of silicon that has just about everything you need to build a bare minimum board. You won’t find many hardware hackers playing around with these chips, though. That would require putting some RAM on the board, and some other high-speed connectors. Until now, the only people building these ARM boards were Real Engineers™, with a salary commensurate of their skills.

This is now about to change. Octavo Systems has launched a new product that’s more or less a BeagleBone on a chip. If you can handle putting a PCB with a BGA package in a toaster oven, you too can build your own ARM single board computer running Linux.

Octavo’s new System in Package is the OSD335x family, featuring a Texas Instruments AM335x ARM Cortex A8 CPU, up to 1GB of DDR3, and peripherals that include 114 GPIOs, 6 UARTs, 2 SPIs, 2 I2Cs, 2x Gigabit Ethernet, and USB.

The chips used in commercially available single board computers like the Pi and BeagleBone have hundreds of passive components sprinkled around the board. This makes designing one of these single board computers challenging, to say nothing about actually assembling the thing. Octavo is baking a bunch of these resistors, capacitors, and inductors right into this chip, allowing for extremely minimal boards running Linux. [Jason Kridner] – the BeagleBone guy – is working on a PocketBone, a full-fledged Linux computer that will fit inside an Altoids tin.

Of course, with this degree of integration, a BeagleBone on a chip won’t be cheap. The first part number of this family to be released, with the AM3358 CPU and 1GB of RAM, sells for $50 in quantity one.

Still, this is something we haven’t seen before. It’s a Linux computer on a chip that anyone can use. There is an Eagle symbol for this module. This is a chip designed for hardware hackers, and we can’t wait to see what people using this chip will come up with.

Google Devs Planning Flash’s Demise With New ‘HTML5 By Default’ Chrome Setting

An anonymous reader quotes a report from Softpedia: In a Google Groups thread named “Intent to implement: HTML5 by Default,” the Google developers announced initial plans to implement a new feature in the Chromium core that will disable the playback of Flash content by default, and use HTML5 instead, if available. The feature is scheduled to ship with Chromium builds in Q4 2016, according to the current timeline. To avoid “overprompting,” a whitelist will allow ten major websites to continue to show Flash content by default without pestering users with “Allow domain.com to run Flash Player” prompts. The whitelist will be in effect one year only. The list includes the domains of YouTube, Facebook, Yahoo, VK, Live, Yandex, OK.ru, Twitch, Amazon, and Mail.ru, the biggest sites running Flash content today. Previews of the settings and prompts UI are also available.

ZFS For Linux Finally Lands In Debian GNU/Linux Repos

prisoninmate quotes a report from Softpedia: It took the Debian developers many years to finally be able to ship a working version of ZFS for Linux on Debian GNU/Linux. For those not in the known, ZFS on Linux is the official OpenZFS implementation for Linux, which promises to offer native ZFS filesystem support for any Linux kernel-based operating system, currently supporting Arch Linux, Ubuntu, Fedora, Gentoo, Red Hat Enterprise Linux, CentOS, openSUSE, and now Debian. And it looks like their ZFS for Linux implementation borrows a lot of patches from Ubuntu, at least according to the changelog for zfs-linux 0.6.5.6-2, the version that is now available in the unstable channel for Debian users to install and test.
