Hosting Hidden Services in I2P: eepSites and SSH (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Hosting Hidden Services in I2P: eepSites and SSH

Here is another foray into Cipherspace. In this video I'll show how to get your eepSite up and running, along with pointing an HTTP tunnel to another web server besides the build in Jetty, and also how to host SSH inside of the I2P network. Before you watch this video, you may want to check out my videos on

Installing I2P under Windows
Installing I2P under Linux

and you will want to read the article on application level de-anonymizing techniques that can be used against I2P hosted services for some background information.

I apologize for it being somewhat meandering, I was doing the video largely off the cuff. Also be aware that "Hidden Services" is more of Tor's terminology for much the same concept, in I2P you set up "I2P Server Tunnels".
