We are thrilled to announce IKEv2 VPN and Always-On VPN for iPhone, iPad and Mac. IKEv2 is considered much more modern and secure than previous older VPN standards such as IPSec, L2TP, and PPTP.

Support for IOS and Mac is in addition to Windows, Android, Linux, Windows Phone, BlackBerry, etc. Installation guides will be up in a few days. Send us an email for early access.

What Acevpn IKEv2 VPN offers?

384 bit Elliptic Curve Digital Signature Algorithm (ECDSA), AES 256 bit data encryption and SHA512 Signature hash algorithm. To give an idea, 384 Bits ECDSA is equivalent to RSA 7680 bits. Higher the bits, more secure it gets.

We use a combination of certificate and username / password for enhanced security.

Visit Elliptic Curve IPSEC IKEv2 VPN for details.

What it means to you?

Faster speeds, highly secure and efficient use of resources. IKEv2 is part of Suite B cryptography and is used by many corporations and governments for secure remote access and data transmission.

What is Always On VPN?

Rather than relying on users to initiate VPN connection, the always-on VPN starts automatically as soon as computer or device detects Internet connection. This setting will ensure you are always on the VPN.

Which server locations support IPSEC IKEv2 VPN

All our servers support IKEv2. For list of locations, visit VPN locations.

VPN apps are blocked in China, etc. Does IKEv2 VPN still work?

IKEv2 is natively supported on iPhone, iPad, Mac, Windows, etc. No need to install any closed source or poorly written apps that drain battery, steals bandwidth or compromises your security and privacy instead of protecting.

We have a new Smart DNS server in London, UK.  Server ending with IP .47 will go offline end of this month. New UK IP is listed in your account area along with other active DNS servers.

For best speed and experience, use at least 2 DNS closer to you. Country indicates physical location of servers. Unlike VPN, DNS is not limited to a single location. For e.g., UK DNS will allow you to stream geo-restricted movies and shows from UK, US, Italy, France and other countries we support. Smart DNS vs VPN

Our Smart DNS proxy allows you to stream 115+ channels from 13+ countries and is free with your VPN account.

Contact us if you need assistance setting up our service or if Unblock TV does not include your favorite channel or site.

Happy streaming!

Last two weeks has been quite interesting. It is no secret that China, Russia and many other countries want to control the Internet and the flow of information on social media and news outlets. There has been a race among countries on who wants to ban VPN. China announced a ban on personal VPN two weeks ago and have asked ISP’s to identify and block unlicensed VPN on their network. Apple pulled VPN apps from the App store in China and now Russian censorship law bans VPN and proxy services.

Lately, VPN industry is in the media for wrong reasons – lifetime VPN, shady services that steal bandwidth, lying about traffic logging, false advertising, deceptive practices, rogue apps spreading virus and malware, free VPN provider hiring big data professionals, etc. The list does not seem to be ending. As the industry grows, so are the scams.

RestorePrivacy recently highlighted the scams that have plagued the industry. They list several companies that sold lifetime VPN accounts and later converted them to limited recurring accounts or closed doors without providing services. Now, they claim many VPN providers are lying about real server locations.

Review sites like BestVPN have immoral written all over them. These sites are filled with affiliate links sponsored by companies that pay upward of $1500 per month to get listed as top VPN. Essentially, it is a list of top 10 sponsors. Read our review on their site, it is subjective, appears to have written by someone with limited knowledge of VPN or wanted to down play us to promote their paying customers. Not everything you read on Internet is true and not everything on Internet is free.

We would like to take this opportunity to clarify our practices at Acevpn.

  • We are a no logs VPN service. We do not log period. No meta-data logging, no traffic logging, no bandwidth usage tracking. We do not have any hidden fair usage policy.
  • Our VPN servers do not store any personal identifying information (PII).
  • We respect your privacy. We do not sell any of your information to 3rd parties.
  • We offer bitcoin payment method for true anonymous payment. If you are paying with credit card, we need your billing address to process your payment and to protect ourselves from charge back.
  • We have servers in 25+ countries and 50+ locations. The locations we advertise are physical locations. We do not fake server locations. Traceroute can confirm this.
  • We offer VPN services with next gen security. Our Elliptic curve cryptography offers best security and is available on both OpenVPN and IPSEC IKEv2.
  • We offer OpenVPN and Tunnelblick software as signed and published by the developers. We do not customize nor brand the software. We also do not offer any closed source apps, black boxes, etc. that can potentially do sneaky things.
  • We publish Transparency report at https://www.acevpn.com/transparency/
  • We do not sponsor on review sites. As expected, we are not top 1 on these sites. However, we do offer affiliate commission for every sale.
  • We offer free VPN as a way to try our services. We do not sell any information nor log any traffic.

Job ad can reveal a lot about company’s intentions, policies, procedures, technology stack, data collection and retention. A client sent us an interesting job posting of a well known VPN provider that claims no logging. Few technologies listed in the ad are generally used for large scale data mining, log processing, machine learning, analytics, etc. Snippet below.

VPN Job Advertisement

Technologies in Job ad Demystified:

Hadoop: Apache Hadoop is a platform for distributed storage, processing and analyzing of big data sets (petabyte scale) using MapReduce programming model. It consists of computer clusters built from commodity hardware. Several companies like Amazon, Google, Facebook, Twitter, Yahoo, etc. use it for data mining, machine learning, data indexing, reporting, log processing and analytics.

Hive: Apache Hive is a data warehouse software built on top of Apache Hadoop for providing data summarization, query, and analysis. Hive gives an SQL-like interface to query data stored in various databases and file systems that integrate with Hadoop.

Impala: Impala brings scalable parallel database technology to Hadoop, enabling users to issue low-latency SQL queries to data stored in HDFS and Apache HBase without requiring data movement or transformation. Impala is promoted for analysts and data scientists to perform analytics on data stored in Hadoop via SQL or business intelligence tools. The result is that large-scale data processing (via MapReduce) and interactive queries can be done on the same system using the same data and metadata – removing the need to migrate data sets into specialized systems and/or proprietary formats simply to perform analysis.

Spark: Apache Spar is a general engine for large-scale data processing. It is designed to perform both batch processing (similar to Hadoop’s MapReduce) and new workloads like streaming, interactive queries, and machine learning.

Zeppelin: A framework that enables interactive data analytics. It brings data ingestion, data exploration, visualization, sharing and collaboration features to Hadoop and Spark.

Splunk: A platform for operational intelligence. It is used to search, monitor and analyze logs, traffic, etc.

A company offering free proxy or low cost vpn has to generate revenue or continuously raise money to pay for their expenses. They need to pay their employees, consultants, infrastructure, bandwidth, shareholders and other overheads. There is no free lunch as wise people say! Do you trust your VPN provider?

We’re excited to announce OpenVPN support for Elliptic Curve Crypto. ECC support is still is beta however results have been very promising. Second generation Suite B Elliptic Curve cryptography offers both better performance and higher security than the first generation widely used RSA. While we are at this, we also made numerous security enhancements to make our VPN even more secure.

What this means to you?

Faster speeds, Highly secure, Efficient use of resources. To give you an idea, 384 bits ECDSA is equivalent to RSA 7680 bits. Higher the bits, more secure it gets.

Our Implementation:

ECC is used during OpenVPN tunnel authentication and key exchange, which are the most important parts of VPN communication.

  • Certificate Public Key: ECC 384 bits / ECDSA_P384
  • Signature hash: SHA-256
  • OpenVPN Data-channel encryption: we use AES-256-GCM which is stronger than AES-256-CBC
  • Control Channel cipher: TLSv1.2, ECDHE-ECDSA-AES256-GCM-SHA384
  • HMAC authentication algorithm: SHA384

How to connect?

You need OpenVPN v2.4 or higher to take advantage of newer features. OpenVPN configs (port 1109) are available for download from account area.

OpenVPN Elliptic Curve Encryption 1109 Port

What else changed?

We now default to AES-256 bit data encryption and fallback to other ciphers if you are running an older OpenVPN software. Upgrading to OpenVPN v2.4 or higher is highly recommended for increased security.
