I treat my home network as part of the Internet

Date: 2016-02-25 07:26 am (UTC)
I mean, it's not like I trust my ISP's router to be secure. So if I need to run an unsecured service then I use my VPN. Devices like this, or visiting friends' computers, are outside the trust boundary, and as a bonus accessing my home server while travelling is exactly the same as doing so from home.

Not that making it easy for attackers to control my lights would be a good thing, but at least with this setup they wouldn't help attack my more important machines.
