WireGuard is a fast, modern, and secure VPN protocol that aims to be simpler to use and more efficient than older protocols like OpenVPN and IPSec. WireGuard is based on cutting-edge cryptography and is designed to be easy to deploy, configure, and maintain.

WireGuard is also more performant than other VPN protocols, which makes it ideal for use with FPGA-based VPNs like Optic VPN.
