Introduction to DN

Nebula open-source is a terrific option for individuals or organizations that don’t mind managing keys, certificates, and host configuration… But we’ve found that most organizations want help with that.

That’s where DN comes in: Think of it as a Defined-managed, customer-run version of Nebula that’s built for teams.

Core components of DN

  • Admin web app to manage hosts, groups, firewall, overlay IPs
  • Web service to automate enrollment and updates across every host
  • Host client software—powered by Nebula—that can automatically update certificates, keys, and configuration (including the groups-based firewall)
