OpenZiti is an open source zero trust network applying zero trust principles directly into applications through SDKs or to existing networks using tunnelers


The main strength of OpenZiti lies in its zero-trust security model. This means that the software does not inherently trust any entities on the network. Instead, it requires every user or device to verify their identity before they can access the network's resources. This approach significantly enhances the network's overall security by eliminating potential vulnerabilities.

The full mesh overlay feature of OpenZiti allows every node in the network to connect directly to every other node. This type of connection architecture results in higher redundancy, as there are multiple paths available for data transmission between nodes. In addition, being self-hostable means you have complete control over your network infrastructure and data.

The user-friendly interface of OpenZiti simplifies the process of managing complex networking tasks. It complements its advanced features with an intuitive design, making it accessible to users regardless of their technical expertise.

With 1236 GitHub stars and the latest commit on 2023-07-31 the project looks healthy.
