# ovpn-admin
Simple web UI to manage OpenVPN users, their certificates & routes in Linux. While backend is written in Go, frontend is based on Vue.js.
Originally created in [Flant](https://flant.com/) for internal needs & used for years, then updated to be more modern and [publicly released](https://blog.flant.com/introducing-ovpn-admin-web-interface-for-openvpn/) in March'21. Your contributions are welcome!
***DISCLAIMER!** This project was created for experienced users (system administrators) and private (e.g., protected by network policies) environments only. Thus, it is not implemented with security in mind (e.g., it doesn't strictly check all parameters passed by users, etc.). It also relies heavily on files and fails if required files aren't available.*
## Features
* Adding OpenVPN users (generating certificates for them);
* Revoking/restoring users certificates;
* Generating ready-to-user config files;
* Providing metrics for Prometheus, including certificates expiration date, number of (connected/total) users, information about connected users;
* (optionally) Specifying CCD (`client-config-dir`) for each user;
* (optionally) Operating in a master/slave mode (syncing certs & CCD with other server);
* (optionally) Specifying/changing password for additional authorization in OpenVPN;
* (optionally) Specifying the Kubernetes LoadBalancer if it's used in front of the OpenVPN server (to get an automatically defined `remote` in the `client.conf.tpl` template).

## Installation
### Disclaimer
This tool uses external calls for `bash`, `coreutils` and `easy-rsa`, thus **Linux systems only are supported** at the moment.
### 1. Docker
There is a ready-to-use [docker-compose.yaml](https://github.com/flant/ovpn-admin/blob/master/docker-compose.yaml), so you can just change/add values you need and start it with [start.sh](https://github.com/flant/ovpn-admin/blob/master/start.sh).
Requirements. You need [Docker](https://docs.docker.com/get-docker/) and [docker-compose](https://docs.docker.com/compose/install/) installed.
Commands to execute:
git clone https://github.com/flant/ovpn-admin.git
cd ovpn-admin
### 2. Building from source
Requirements. You need Linux with the following components installed:
- [golang](https://golang.org/doc/install)
- [packr2](https://github.com/gobuffalo/packr#installation)
- [nodejs/npm](https://nodejs.org/en/download/package-manager/)
Commands to execute:
git clone https://github.com/flant/ovpn-admin.git
cd ovpn-admin
(Please don't forget to configure all needed params in advance.)
### 3. Prebuilt binary (WIP)
You can also download and use prebuilt binaries from the [releases](https://github.com/flant/ovpn-admin/releases) page — just choose a relevant tar.gz file.
To use password authentication (the `--auth` flag) you have to install [openvpn-user](https://github.com/pashcovich/openvpn-user/releases). This tool should be available in your `$PATH` and its binary should be executable (`+x`).
