I got a 750S from GL-Inet. I know not much about linux or firewalls but I want to get started and learn. I have a project in mind and hope it can serve as a medium for me to increase my knowledge.
My project objective is this. I want to create a super secure travel router with no bloat or added services that are not absolutely necessary. The router is perform 3 functions:
- Use wireless radio or ethernet connect to internet source
- Encrypt traffic with fail-safe via Wireguard. Ensure proper entropy can be provided for encryption (i.e. USB TRNG).
- Rebroadcast encrypted secure AP on wireless radio.
That's it. No file sharing, captive portal detection, server features just absolute bare bones minimal attack surface using only essential technology to perform this function. Everything locked down and secure as possible.
If any dev's can give good pointers or tips or information to get me started on my journey. If things from your own experience you learn you can share that might save me a lot of time and hair loss I appreciate. Also any considerations i need to give before undertaking project. It's difficult I know what I want but not much about the technology so it feels very daunting right now I am intimidated but optimistic is can be good learning experience
