Your donation to Project MIST will provide critical seed funding for our Micro Internet Services Toolkit project. MIST will be a free and open source downloadable toolkit that any User at any technical level will be able to use to to create their own Internet Service Provider.
MIST will enable anyone to become their own Internet Service Provider, host their own domain, including a range of common online services (website, email, conference server, etc). MIST, based on Linux, will run on a User’s own inexpensive, net-connected hardware at their own location, or can be installed on colocated hardware or even onto a virtual machine at a cloud-based hosting provider.
MIST could make unnecessarily expensive hosting services obsolete and will increase User privacy and personal information security. MIST servers will also be able to connect to each other (and the TOR network) to help protect Users’ personal data from privacy-invading advertising companies and protect Users’ emails and online searches from location detection by krackers, foreign intelligence agencies and organized criminals.
CRF got started in late 2019, but please give generously to help Project MIST make major progress. It’s 100% tax-deductible and you’ll be among the first people to be able to try MIST out!
