Riseup - from RiseupVPN to OpenVPN
Donate to Riseup
Even though it’s open source, people might not want to install additional applications when you can just use a 5KB OpenVPN profile for that. Basically you just need a way to “trick” the Riseup server to give you the correct data (CA certificate, client certificate and private key) so an OpenVPN profile can be generated, and for that we’ll be using this excellent tool by nitrohorse. You can also use Postman or wget/curl to retrieve the certificates and private key.
Caveat: The generated OpenVPN profile must be re-created every 60 days, the RiseupVPN client does that transparently, but you can use cron, or whatever automation tool you fancy, to re-create the profile when needed.
