Implementation of WireGuard would be awesome.
Its a small but strong VPN Solution, based on newer Security Algorithms and is getting to build into Linux Kernel
Wireguard looks like it takes OpenVPN and IPSec out of Business ^^
Something about 4000 Lines of Code(instead of 400-600k) and open source
@Miggi I love the idea, however - One issue I see with this is the claim of being better than OpenVPN, but no certification by a reputable security firm like OpenVPN. I have tried Wireguard though - amazing how fast and easy it was to configure. But just not old enough to be considered stable - yet.

Wireguard 1.0.0 is now audited, released and included in the Linux 5.6. Time to get the app going!

@yusf Wouldn't it be great to combine it with Pi-hole, then you have an all-in-one "always safe home" connection? The apps (ie. iOS and MacOS) of Wireguard are btw absolutely great, always connection, fast, never failes and even after reboot immediately connects.
Is there a wireguard UI in progress? We can probably re-purpose what @mehdi wrote for the OpenVPN app for wireguard as well.

@girish there are a lot (too many) initiatives for a web GUI none really mature IMHO. Currently I use PIVPN (can also be installed on Ubuntu) with commandline, very easy, very simple and also with QR code (from the command line!)
Wireguard has been audited many times now. It is even upstreamed into the kernel.
Replying to old comments is hard apparently.
@yusf 100% this!! I actually already use it daily heheh
@will My original response to this post was almost a year ago - so of course stuff has changed since........
@murgero hahaah noted! I'll remove my reply!
@will No worries mate cheers!

For interest I find this WG service decent. I have 1Gb fibre and it's able to achieve about 90% of that speed, whereas Open VPN (with pfSense on Vultr) I get about 20% of my bandwidth:
And if any geeks are looking to relocate:

@Miggi I am a big fan, too and are upvoting.
Please also see this thread:
Together it makes even more sense.
+1 - Been using WireGuard over OpenVPN for the past couple of months and prefer it!
