What is WireGuard?

WireGuard is an open-source VPN that uses state-of-the-art cryptography while at the same time being easy to configure, fast, and secure.  It is a new VPN protocol that started as an experiment. It gradually evolved as an OpenVPN and IPSec alternative. If you want to dig in more on the tech specs of this protocol you can always find more about what is wireguard from our experts..

WireGuard was officially released publicly on March 30th, 2020, is included in version 5.6 of the Linux kernel.

Although WireGuard was originally developed for Linux, it can now provide VPN on macOS, VPN on Windows, VPN on AndroidVPN on iOS, or BSD.

It’s an already stable protocol that has been proven to be more than capable to handle today’s VPN consumer base.
