Operational Security utility and automator. NetSet is designed to automate a number of operations that will help the user with securing their network traffic. It also provides an easy way to gather proxies and run utilities through Tor.

All the utilities installed and used by NetSet will be automatically configured as well. Of course the tool itself isn’t the be all of Operational Security. Rather it is a convenient way of getting yourself set up with the basics. Also you can learn to gather proxies and run utilities.

NetSet facilitates, among other things;

A terminal multiplexer on demand, that has it’s sessions routed through Tor. Secured DNS traffic through automatic installation and configuration of DNSCrypt-proxy. Tor Wall functionality that forces all traffic through the Tor Network. Easy access to online OPSEC resources, the web resources in question can be opened in-script.

After cloning the repo navigate to the NetSet directory and run the following:

chmod +x *.sh
./netset-main.sh –install #sudo

./netset-main.sh –install

This will install and configure everything you’ll need for NetSet to function properly.


Using sudo to start the script will execute every operation within the script as root, this means you won’t be prompted for your sudo password when an operation requires elevated privileges. However all items written by NetSet will consequently be owned by root as well, including backup directories. Last but not least; when considering security implications, it is not recommended to run everything with super user privileges.

Starting the main script with sudo will be optional from now on to reflect the above considerations.
