OpenVPN WatchDog is an advanced Windows based application to securely monitor for OpenVPN encrypted traffic tampering while in transit (Man-in-the-middle attacks) and prevent exposure of real IP address thereby offering the benefits of encrypted connection to the internet with IP address anonymity. To ensure that IP traffic is actually routed across the VPN and hence encrypted, the program automatically checks that the VPN assigned IP Address appears as the first hop using the "tracert" command.
The program also detects DNS Leaks issues and DNS changer malware/DNS hijacking threats when using OpenVPN and will automatically disconnect your internet when DNS leaks and threats are detected. OpenVPN WatchDog is a program designed to monitor your OpenVPN connection and ensures that you do not blow up your anonymity when you lose your OpenVPN connection. When connected to an OpenVPN server and OpenVPN WatchDog is enabled, you can be sure that all traffic leaving your computer is fully encrypted. When your OpenVPN crashes or is compromised, OpenVPN WatchDog will automatically detect it, alert you of the danger and cut-off your internet access automatically. OpenVPN Watchdog is offered as a 'Software as a Service" (SaaS) which allows clients to detect and prevent IP and DNS leaks including DNS threats such as DNS Changer Malware and Hosts file breach while connected to OpenVPN server.
OpenVPN Watchdog is integrated with a powerful firewall which automatically secures your OpenVPN connection against IP leaks and DNS leaks and enables you to force all applications on your computer to only work once connected to your OpenVPN servers thereby ensuring Zero IP/DNS leaks. This ensures that all applications in your PC will only work behind the secure encrypted connection. This is useful in the event of an unexpected disconnection from your VPN servers, you can be sure that any application will not revert back to using your default unencrypted internet connection thereby exposing your real IP in the process.
OpenVPN Watchdog Functions:
-To prevent IP leaks thereby safeguarding the exposure of the real IP of the user while connected to the OpenVPN server
-Includes an inbuilt IP blocker firewall that blocks inbound/outbound connection to thousands of known malicious IPs with ability to use custom IP blocklists and whitelists
-To prevent DNS leaks including transparent DNS proxies thereby preventing the ability of your ISP or any third party entity to monitor or view the sites you visit while connected to the VPN server. You can test for DNS leaks using this 3rd party web tool
-To protect against all forms of DNS changer malwares aimed at changing your computer's legitimate TCP/IP DNS IPs to rogue DNS servers in order to hijack your DNS queries for nefarious purposes such as phishing.
-To protect against DNS hosts file phishing attacks by monitoring the integrity and authenticity of the hosts file using secure hash algorithm (SHA 512)
-OpenVPN Watchdog can protect you reliably from the new WebRTC privacy issue which can leak your real IP address even when connected to your OpenVPN server (Recently discovered security flaw: see this Github page for more details). Use this resource to test if your IP address can be leaked via WebRTC. Check this page for more info on the issue.
