Skynet - Advanced IP Blocking For ASUS Routers Using IPSet.

Project README

Skynet - Firewall & Security Enhancements Build Status

Lightweight firewall addition for ARM/HND based ASUS Routers using IPSet as seen on SmallNetBuilder

Skynet is the first comprehensive IP banning and security tool exclusively for Asus Devices.

The goal of this tool is to enhance the firmware's built in functionality such as the SPI Firewall, Brute Force Detection and AiProtect while adding easy to use tools for users to implement custom firewall rules they desire. Skynet has a range of feature from banning single IPs, domains, entire countries or pulling predefined malware lists from reputable providers. Skynet can also be used to secure IOT device and prevent them from phoning home. It is the one stop shop for router security and the first line of defense in your home network.

Skynet fully supports OpenVPN implementations from providers like Private Internet Access, along with various user scripts such as Diversion & Scribe. Extensive testing has also been done with home security products like the Annke DW81KE and NAS systems including the QNAP TVS-672XT.

This script will always be open source and free to use, but if you want to support future development you can do so by Donating With PayPal.


Skynet provides both a user interactive menu, and command line interface for those who prefer it.

To open the menu its as simple as;

Skynet gained self-awareness after it had spread into millions of computer servers all across the world; realizing the extent of its abilities, its creators tried to deactivate it. In the interest of self-preservation, Skynet concluded that all of humanity would attempt to destroy it and impede its capability in safeguarding the world. Its operations are almost exclusively performed by servers, mobile devices, drones, military satellites, war-machines, androids and cyborgs (usually a terminator), and other computer systems. As a programming directive, Skynet's manifestation is that of an overarching, global, artificial intelligence hierarchy (AI takeover), which seeks to exterminate the human race in order to fulfill the mandates of its original coding.
