Welcome to the OpenZiti Project!
The OpenZiti project is a free, open source project focused on bringing Zero Trust to any application. The project provides all the pieces required to implement or integrate Zero Trust into your solutions:
- The overlay network
- Tunneling Applications for all operating systems
- Numerous SDKs making it easy to add Zero Trust concepts directly into your application
Ziti makes it easy to embed Zero Trust, programmable networking directly into your app. With Ziti you can have Zero Trust, high performance networking on any Internet connection, without VPNs!
Get Started - Build a Network!
Ziti make Zero Trust easy but you'll need an overlay network in order to start on your Zero Trust journey. We recommend you start with a simple network. Once you understand the basic concepts it can make more sense to move on to more complex network topologies. Choose what sort of network you want to build.
I Have a Network! What's Next?
Fantastic! Now that you have a Ziti Network all setup and ready to go, the next step is learning about all of the pieces which go into it. There's a lot to learn and our docs are there to help you understand any extra details you need help ironing out. If the docs don't, we love issues for how to improve our docs or if you're feeling up for it we'd love to see any PRs to make the docs better! You'll find a more extensive list of the quickstarts we have.
Get Started With an SDK
The OpenZiti project offers numerous SDKs to start with. Pick your favorite language and follow along with a simple tutorial! If your favorite language is not shown, perhaps you can use the C SDK and integrate via FFI.
Not Ready to Go Fully App-Embedded?
That's ok - Zero Trust adoption is a journey! Get started with a couple of very simple examples which will get you familiar with the technology overall. These samples will leverage one of the tunneling apps.
Now that you've seen how cool OpenZiti is - maybe consider starring us on GitHub? It helps others find the project! Show your support of OpenZiti today!
