WireGuard® is an extremely simple yet fast and modern VPN that utilizes state-of-the-art cryptography.

It aims to be fastersimpler, leaner, and more useful than IPSec, while avoiding the massive headache.
It intends to be considerably more performant than OpenVPN. WireGuard is designed as a general purpose VPN for running on embedded interfaces and super computers alike, fit for many different circumstances. Initially released for the Linux kernel, it is now cross-platform and widely deployable.
It is currently under heavy development, but already it might be regarded as the most secure, easiest to use, and simplest VPN solution in the industry.

It is already being adopted: easily available in Linux, VPN providers like AzireVPN support it and open source routers like Ubiquity, and OpenWRT show good performance.

    Despite not yet mainlined into the Linux Kernel, most distros already have it in their repositories or even pack it into the standard distro.
    I wished ZyXEL would include it into their ZyWalls. (USG....)

    That would be a great way to connect from my Linux Notebook to the company network.
    As well as connecting two ZyWalls (VPN connections) for conneting our external work shop to the main office.
    (NB: Many clients are available, and also a windows client is under development. https://github.com/WireGuard)
