▲ ▼ Secure sharing of home WiFi
We can rarely say NO to the house guest who asks for our WiFi access password. But sharing WiFi access means opening our network to a random device.
With many professionals working from home, Opening access to the network used by the work computers is a huge security risk /problems/107 even if they are connect to the office network via a VPN. Not to mention that even an average home user face wide range of threats on the Internet.
Although there ways to mitigate security risks when sharing WiFi to the house guest like using separate network running a VPN and using network level block lists; They are far beyond the technical capabilities of an average home user.
So, There's a need-gap for a solution which enables secure sharing of home WiFi to guests without technical overhead.
May I know if you are looking for a hardware-only solution (Like Routers themselves having this feature, but these kind of routers can get expensive) a software solution (this might involve running some server/software on the owner's computer and keeping it running, and making use of it; Though this can probably be simplified using code, but still it is a operational burden) or if you are looking for a low cost hardware package (Like pre-configured custom built Raspberry Pi, but still there is some initial cost associated with it)?
