If you need a really secure anonymous cover, you should look beyond VPN and consider using RDP access to a consumer box. RDP stands for Remote Desktop Protocol and basically allows you to remotely control another person's computer without him knowing. Therefore, such an RDP access is sometimes also called "vicsocks".
If you're looking for such options UAS RDP is certainly a site you should look at. UAS stands for “Ultimate Anonymity Services” and they offer thousands of different RDP credentials for sale. They are the largest known market for this specialized access and additionaly they also offer SSN datasets in case you need a forged identity for your activities.
To get started on UAS RDP you will need to state a jabber account as part of the registration. For security purposes we recommend using a dedicated jabber account you use only for this site (always compartmentalize). You can use sites like Calyxinstitute you register jabber accounts for free.
Before you can fully use the site you will also need to deposit at least $10 to your account on UAS RDP. You can fund your account using Bitcoin or Litecoin. Once your deposit has been accepted you can search the available RDP systems by country, state, city, zip code, ISP and operating system. Additionally, there are switches to filter out direct IPs, default ports, admin rights, and several other criteria.
The results are listed in a clear table view which you can sort by any column. Once you have found an RDP system you like you have two options: Buying straight forward access costs you between $3 and $15 for 24 hours, depending on the system. But you also have the option to “buy out” which means you will buy the RDP access exclusively for you, ruling out having any “neighbors” on the system.
There are a few rules to obey if you are using UAS RDP Service: Spamming is prohibited as this would lead to blacklisted IPs by Spamhaus which would impact all other users as well. For the same reason, it is not allowed to share the RDP access with third parties or run multi-threaded processes that would eat all resources. Lastly, for obvious reasons you are not allowed to hack or compromise the RDP access you purchased.
Another nice feature is that you can resell your RDP access on the site if you don't need it anymore. When the RDP access is resold, you will receive 30% of the original price back. If you are new to RDP access, this is also no problem: UAS RDP provides detailed setup guides and instructions on how to use this service. For further suggestions, read the sections “Why RDP?" and “Security Recommendations” below.
There are several good reasons to use RDP access instead (or rather on top of) VPN connections. The main reason is that you will have a residential, real IP-address making you indistinguishable from a random John Doe on the Internet. This means you have access to sites and services that often block IP ranges of VPN providers and other anonymity services (TOR, etc). This makes it much easier to access streaming services that are regionally limited (Netflix et al) but also you will be able to post on sites like eBay, craigslist or Wikipedia while looking like a normal user.
Before logging into any RDP system you should make sure that you are already anonymized by using a VPN or some other means to mask your real IP. This is for security reasons as you don't really know much about the system you are logging into. Plus, you never want to leave a trace of your real IP anywhere but your first login point which purpose should always be to anonymize you.
Other than that, the usual security recommendations apply. First and foremost, stay anonymous. Use the TOR browser only and don't use the TOR browser for any regular (non-darknet) browsing. Ideally, you have a dedicated system or at least a dedicated VM for all your darknet activities. Keep your darknet PGP keys and other credentials limited to that system only, do not mix it with any activities that would expose your identity.
Treat your dedicated system like a work-system: Only install the software necessary for your operations do not install anything for entertainment or other purposes. Subsequently, resist the urge to browse Twitter, Reddit or any other social media sites while you have downtime. For this always use your regular system.
If you are looking for systems to access via RDP, UAS RDP should be one of the first sites to check. Not only are their prices reasonable but they also have a detailed help section including setup guides, an extensive refund police and support staff that is always available to you. That plus the fact that it is the biggest market site for RDP systems makes it one opf the sites you should bookmark if you plan to frequently use RDP systems.
