shadowsocks-libev-nocrypto

Build Status

This is a fork of the popular Shadowsocks-libev proxy application, which enable the user to disable the encryption. The motivation behind this: on router boards with limited CPU resources, the encryption is drop down the network throughput.

On my Raspberry Pi 2 device, I measured 15 Mbps on loopback with aes-128-gcm and 285 Mbps with none (no encryption). Obviously, turning off the encryption is optional (set encryption method to none for that), and only use if you can sure in the security considerations.

shadowsocks-libev

Intro

Shadowsocks-libev is a lightweight secured SOCKS5 proxy for embedded devices and low-end boxes.

It is a port of Shadowsocks created by @clowwindy, and maintained by @madeye and @linusyang.

Current version: 3.2.0 | Changelog

Features

Shadowsocks-libev is written in pure C and depends on libev. It's designed to be a lightweight implementation of shadowsocks protocol, in order to keep the resource usage as low as possible.

For a full list of feature comparison between different versions of shadowsocks, refer to the Wiki page.

Fedora & RHEL

Supported distributions:

  • Recent Fedora versions (until EOL)
  • RHEL 6, 7 and derivatives (including CentOS, Scientific Linux)

Build from source with centos

If you are using CentOS 7, you need to install these prequirement to build from source code:

yum install epel-release -y
yum install gcc gettext autoconf libtool automake make pcre-devel asciidoc xmlto c-ares-devel libev-devel libsodium-devel mbedtls-devel -y

Install from repository

Enable repo via dnf:

su -c 'dnf copr enable librehat/shadowsocks'

Or download yum repo on Fedora Copr and put it inside /etc/yum.repos.d/. The release Epel is for RHEL and its derivatives.

Then, install shadowsocks-libev via dnf:

su -c 'dnf update'
su -c 'dnf install shadowsocks-libev'

or yum:

su -c 'yum update'
su -c 'yum install shadowsocks-libev'

The repository is maintained by @librehat, any issues, please report here

Archlinux

sudo pacman -S shadowsocks-libev

Please refer to downstream PKGBUILD script for extra modifications and distribution-specific bugs.

NixOS

nix-env -iA nixos.shadowsocks-libev

Nix

nix-env -iA nixpkgs.shadowsocks-libev

Linux

In general, you need the following build dependencies:

  • autotools (autoconf, automake, libtool)
  • gettext
  • pkg-config
  • libmbedtls
  • libsodium
  • libpcre3 (old pcre library)
  • libev
  • libc-ares
  • asciidoc (for documentation only)
  • xmlto (for documentation only)

Notes: Fedora 26 libsodium version >= 1.0.12, so you can install via dnf install libsodium instead build from source.

If your system is too old to provide libmbedtls and libsodium (later than v1.0.8), you will need to either install those libraries manually or upgrade your system.

If your system provides with those libraries, you should not install them from source. You should jump this section and install them from distribution repository instead.

For some of the distributions, you might install build dependencies like this:

# Installation of basic build dependencies
## Debian / Ubuntu
sudo apt-get install --no-install-recommends gettext build-essential autoconf libtool libpcre3-dev asciidoc xmlto libev-dev libc-ares-dev automake libmbedtls-dev libsodium-dev
## CentOS / Fedora / RHEL
sudo yum install gettext gcc autoconf libtool automake make asciidoc xmlto c-ares-devel libev-devel
## Arch
sudo pacman -S gettext gcc autoconf libtool automake make asciidoc xmlto c-ares libev

# Installation of Libsodium
export LIBSODIUM_VER=1.0.13
wget https://download.libsodium.org/libsodium/releases/libsodium-$LIBSODIUM_VER.tar.gz
tar xvf libsodium-$LIBSODIUM_VER.tar.gz
pushd libsodium-$LIBSODIUM_VER
./configure --prefix=/usr && make
sudo make install
popd
sudo ldconfig

# Installation of MbedTLS
export MBEDTLS_VER=2.6.0
wget https://tls.mbed.org/download/mbedtls-$MBEDTLS_VER-gpl.tgz
tar xvf mbedtls-$MBEDTLS_VER-gpl.tgz
pushd mbedtls-$MBEDTLS_VER
make SHARED=1 CFLAGS=-fPIC
sudo make DESTDIR=/usr install
popd
sudo ldconfig

# Start building
./autogen.sh && ./configure && make
sudo make install

You may need to manually install missing softwares.

FreeBSD

su
cd /usr/ports/net/shadowsocks-libev
make install

Edit your config.json file. By default, it's located in /usr/local/etc/shadowsocks-libev.

To enable shadowsocks-libev, add the following rc variable to your /etc/rc.conf file:

shadowsocks_libev_enable="YES"

Start the Shadowsocks server:

service shadowsocks_libev start

OpenWRT

The OpenWRT project is maintained here: openwrt-shadowsocks.

OS X

For OS X, use Homebrew to install or build.

Install Homebrew:

ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)"

Install shadowsocks-libev:

brew install shadowsocks-libev

Windows (MinGW)

To build Windows native binaries, the recommended method is to use Docker:

  • On Windows: double-click make.bat in docker\mingw

  • On Unix-like system:

      cd shadowsocks-libev/docker/mingw
      make
    

A tarball with 32-bit and 64-bit binaries will be generated in the same directory.

You could also manually use MinGW-w64 compilers to build in Unix-like shell (MSYS2/Cygwin), or cross-compile on Unix-like systems (Linux/MacOS). Please refer to build scripts in docker/mingw.

Currently you need to use a patched libev library for MinGW:

Notice that TCP Fast Open (TFO) is only available on Windows 10, 1607 or later version (precisely, build >= 14393). If you are using 1709 (build 16299) or later version, you also need to run the following command in PowerShell/Command Prompt as Administrator and reboot to use TFO properly:

    netsh int tcp set global fastopenfallback=disabled

Docker

As you expect, simply pull the image and run.

docker pull shadowsocks/shadowsocks-libev
docker run -e PASSWORD=<password> -p<server-port>:8388 -p<server-port>:8388/udp -d shadowsocks/shadowsocks-libev

More information about the image can be found here.

Transparent proxy

The latest shadowsocks-libev has provided a redir mode. You can configure your Linux-based box or router to proxy all TCP traffic transparently, which is handy if you use a OpenWRT-powered router.

# Create new chain
iptables -t nat -N SHADOWSOCKS
iptables -t mangle -N SHADOWSOCKS

# Ignore your shadowsocks server's addresses
# It's very IMPORTANT, just be careful.
iptables -t nat -A SHADOWSOCKS -d 123.123.123.123 -j RETURN

# Ignore LANs and any other addresses you'd like to bypass the proxy
# See Wikipedia and RFC5735 for full list of reserved networks.
# See ashi009/bestroutetb for a highly optimized CHN route list.
iptables -t nat -A SHADOWSOCKS -d 0.0.0.0/8 -j RETURN
iptables -t nat -A SHADOWSOCKS -d 10.0.0.0/8 -j RETURN
iptables -t nat -A SHADOWSOCKS -d 127.0.0.0/8 -j RETURN
iptables -t nat -A SHADOWSOCKS -d 169.254.0.0/16 -j RETURN
iptables -t nat -A SHADOWSOCKS -d 172.16.0.0/12 -j RETURN
iptables -t nat -A SHADOWSOCKS -d 192.168.0.0/16 -j RETURN
iptables -t nat -A SHADOWSOCKS -d 224.0.0.0/4 -j RETURN
iptables -t nat -A SHADOWSOCKS -d 240.0.0.0/4 -j RETURN

# Anything else should be redirected to shadowsocks's local port
iptables -t nat -A SHADOWSOCKS -p tcp -j REDIRECT --to-ports 12345

# Add any UDP rules
ip route add local default dev lo table 100
ip rule add fwmark 1 lookup 100
iptables -t mangle -A SHADOWSOCKS -p udp --dport 53 -j TPROXY --on-port 12345 --tproxy-mark 0x01/0x01

# Apply the rules
iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -p tcp -j SHADOWSOCKS

# Start the shadowsocks-redir
ss-redir -u -c /etc/config/shadowsocks.json -f /var/run/shadowsocks.pid

Shadowsocks over KCP

It's quite easy to use shadowsocks and KCP together with kcptun.

The goal of shadowsocks over KCP is to provide a fully configurable, UDP based protocol to improve poor connections, e.g. a high packet loss 3G network.

Setup your server

server_linux_amd64 -l :21 -t 127.0.0.1:443 --crypt none --mtu 1200 --nocomp --mode normal --dscp 46 &
ss-server -s 0.0.0.0 -p 443 -k passwd -m chacha20 -u

Setup your client

client_linux_amd64 -l 127.0.0.1:1090 -r <server_ip>:21 --crypt none --mtu 1200 --nocomp --mode normal --dscp 46 &
ss-local -s 127.0.0.1 -p 1090 -k passwd -m chacha20 -l 1080 -b 0.0.0.0 &
ss-local -s <server_ip> -p 443 -k passwd -m chacha20 -l 1080 -U -b 0.0.0.0

Security Tips

Although shadowsocks-libev can handle thousands of concurrent connections nicely, we still recommend setting up your server's firewall rules to limit connections from each user:

# Up to 32 connections are enough for normal usage
iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --syn --dport ${SHADOWSOCKS_PORT} -m connlimit --connlimit-above 32 -j REJECT --reject-with tcp-reset
