The Complexity of App Development

Creating and maintaining a VPN app involves a multitude of people and systems. Ensuring the safety of our users means not only vetting and training our team but also safeguarding against external interference. This is where our build verification procedure plays a crucial role.

Minimizing the Risk of Contamination

In recent times, we’ve witnessed instances where major tech companies unwittingly distributed software infected with malicious code. To mitigate this risk, we’ve implemented a verification system that significantly reduces the chances of compromised individuals or machines introducing malware into our software.

Here are some of the key policies and procedures we’ve put in place:

  • PGP Encryption Keys: All source code changes are authenticated using PGP encryption keys issued by ForestVPN.
  • Code Approval: Every code change must be approved by an authorized person different from the one who made the change.
  • Automated Audits: Changes are subject to automated audits, with alerts for unexpected alterations, followed up with personal verification.
  • Build Environments: We utilize only the automated build environments CircleCI and Azure DevOps for distributing binaries to our users.

Taking the Worry Out of Your Security

At ForestVPN, we’re committed to enhancing your privacy and security. Our recent security assessment by Cure53 and the audit of our privacy policy compliance and TrustedServer technology by PwC Switzerland are part of our efforts to provide independent reviews of our commitments to customers.

These audits, coupled with initiatives like the VPN Trust Initiative and open-source leak testing tools, reflect our dedication to transparency and pushing the industry forward.
