Some of our privacy related projects

As big supporters of online privacy and alternative networks, IncogNET sponsors, hosts or contributes network resources to a variety of projects. Lately we have been trying to push projects to alternative networks like I2P, Tor, and Yggdrasil that bridge clearnet resources to allow users on these networks to access big-tech content like YouTube and Reddit, but without the big-tech data collection. Check out some of what we do in our spare time, for fun, and to help promote privacy below.

Free YouTube Proxy

Available on the clearnet, Tor, I2P and Yggdrasil Networks!

We run IncogTUBE – A public and free YouTube proxy that allows you to watch/listen to your favorite YouTube content without Google ever knowing you paid them a visit. Available over a variety of networks, the site functions without JavaScript, has no trackers, logging or 3rd party elements. All traffic is proxied through our Netherlands location before reaching you. The site works great on mobile and allows you to access features like Picture in Picture and background media playing and it’s often used to listen to music on mobile with the screen turned off, something you can not do in the official YouTube app. The site is powered by Invidious, an open-source YouTube proxy software with some custom template modifications that can be seen here. Please consider donating to this great project.

Reddit Privacy Front-End

Browse reddit content from Tor, I2P and Yggdrasil

We noticed something was missing from some of our favorite networks, so we decided to bring some of the great content and information that is shared on reddit and make it accessible to those who are on the I2P, Tor and Yggdrasil networks. For this we had two viable options, both open source, either by using Libreddit or Teddit. We liked the lightweight look and the feeling of Teddit’s interface, as it reminded us of the old reddit design that is currently only accessible via old.reddit.com. With this installation of Teddit, you can browse your favorite content and subreddits, view pictures, watch videos, and more. All content is proxied through our Netherlands location before reaching you and requires no javascript, trackers or 3rd party "BS".

I2P Outproxy Sponsorship

We provide network resources to the default I2P+ Outproxy service

I2P is one of our favorite alternative networks, however the network itself was not originally built or intended to be used for browsing the clearnet anonymously. This feature came later, through the use of outproxy services, however the default I2P outproxy (false.i2p) that comes pre-configured with stock I2P is painfully slow. That is why we sponsor the fastest available I2P outproxy available, the official outproxy of I2P+, purokishi.i2p. We happily provide them a server in both our Finland and Netherlands location to help distribute outproxy traffic for the I2P network.

By using purokishi.i2p as your outproxy, you gain the ability to browse the clearnet by having your traffic tunneled through the I2P network with your requests reaching the clearnet only from the IP address of the outproxy service as opposed to your own (or your router's IP). The purokishi.i2p outproxy service is multi-homed with several exit points in rotation, it blocks known advertisements and allow you to resolve .onion domains as well. The purokishi.i2p outproxy will work on any I2P router software that allows outproxy access, so feel free to replace the slow, old and unmaintained outproxy with purokishi.i2p !

High Performance (I2P+) I2P Network Routers

We love Yggdrasil, and happily host peers to contribute resources to the network!

We use the I2P+ router console software to host several I2P+ high performance routers. I2P+ is compatible with all features of the I2P network and identify as regular I2P routers on the network, but offers access in a highly optimized and performance focused solution. These routers are used by us in production, by being the connecting-point to some HTTP tunnels that allow services and sites to be available natively over the I2P network. When not serving requests for our own sites and projects that we serve over the network, they’re acting as an anonymizing and encrypted hop for other network user’s requests and serving as randomized tunnels for internal network services like IRC and mail.

We deploy and maintain an I2P+ router in each location that we offer VPS services out of. By doing so we hope to provide some additional stable network resources to help power what is arguably our favorite of the alternative networks.

We host Yggdrasil Peer Nodes

We love Yggdrasil, and happily host peers to contribute resources to the network!

Yggdtrasil is an alpha-stage “implementation of a fully end-to-end encrypted IPv6 network. It is lightweight, self-arranging, supported on multiple platforms, and allows pretty much any IPv6-capable application to communicate securely with other Yggdrasil nodes. Yggdrasil does not require you to have IPv6 Internet connectivity - it also works over IPv4.”

We’re drawn to this network project and have made several other websites available natively through their network, including our own. We also utilize Yggdrasil in an interesting use-case where our I2P network HTTP tunnels (tunnels from the I2P network to our remote, clearnet servers) are served over Yggdrasil to secure the connection without any noticeable decrease in performance.

We are currently running Yggdrasil Peer Nodes in the Netherlands and in Finland as well as one in a location of interest to us, Dallas, Texas. We are committed to deploying a new node in every location that we offer VPS services from, so as our small business grows so will the availability of additional Yggdrasil network peers. Our hope is that this will help strengthen their network by us offering fast, reliable, and readily available network resources to help serve traffic.

You can view the Yggdrasil Network Map, which includes a search function where you can enter “IncogNET” to see all of the available services we run on the network.

We host Tor Exits

We run our own high speed Tor Exit in the Netherlands!

While Tor (likely the most commonly used anonymity network) already has a very strong and solid network foundation, that hasn’t stopped us from contributing a Tor Exit in the Netherlands to help keep users anonymous online. (We also use Tor with our VPN’s DNS cluster to secure DNS requests) Our official Tor exit has only been operating since 08-18-2021 but we have allocated 10TB of traffic each month to be used for the Tor network.

We also allow our customers to host their own Tor exits, but like us, should block common abuse ports like those associated with email.
