Designed with an eye on security and privacy, SPR aims to give you complete control — by putting every device on its own private network.

Computer security developer Alex Radocea is looking to bring control of network routers back to the individual, launching a project to create what he calls a "Secure Programmable Router" using a Raspberry Pi 4 single-board computer (SBC). 

"I started working on this project because I think that Linux provides a tremendous amount of agility and power for secure home networking but I felt like there was no router project out there that pulled it all together," Radocea explains of the SPR Project. "SPR simply enables users to do better than today's status quo. It lets users run a hardened, secure network without restrictive drawbacks. It lets users connect their consumer electronics to the internet with the peace of mind that doing so does not weaken their home network security."
