About Silent Dune

Silent Dune is a suite of Open Source software to protect at the system and network levels. Silent Dune has two primary core directives, first; restrict system egress traffic by default and second; make managing network policies easy for administrators through automation and good command line and UI tools.

Silent Dune is currently for:

  • Sysadmins looking to set egress firewall rules on systems that is automated and easy to manage over time
  • IOT Device OEMs looking for simple bolt on security
  • Anyone that is interested in software that makes White Listing network traffic automated and simple

The stretch goal for Silent Dune is to have enough modules and support to fully secure egress traffic on a Linux desktop used by a non-sysadmin and still be perfectly usable. We have many ideas to make this stretch goal, if you are interested in helping please let us know.
