wikipedia:WireGuard is a free and open-source software application and communication protocol that implements virtual private network techniques to create secure point-to-point connections in routed or bridged configurations. It use Noise protocol framework, Curve25519, ChaCha20, Poly1305, BLAKE2, SipHash24 and HKDF.

Technical features:

  • WireGuard is invisible to illegitimate peers and network scanners [1]
  • WireGuard uses only UDP protocol (port 41414).
  • Connection-less protocol

  • Curve25519 used for identified peers, using their public key, a 32-byte Curve25519 point

Included in March 2020 into the Linux Kernel 5.6 , available in Ubuntu since Ubuntu 20.10

WireGuard's encryption speed claims to be faster that IPsec group protocols.

  • MacOS: brew install wireguard-tools
  • iOS: allows auto activation on WiFI based on SSID.
