Running on an OpenWrt router whilst connected to a Mullvad.net VPN server, it's much faster than OpenVPN -253Mb/s vs 167 Mb/s on speedtest.net - whilst using considerably less of the router's resources. WireGuard appears to be the future.

WireGuard is the next evolution of currently used VPN standards/protocols. It's a newer technology yet has already experienced fast adoption (which is rare for security-focused standards). It provides many features not [natively] supported by current VPN offerings such as OpenVPN, and although there may be a learning curve (as with any newer techs), the resultant seamless/secure WAN/LAN-based network connectivity (a la ZeroTier) is worth it. Cloudflare has even been using it in production as the backbone of their "WARP" (1.1.1.1) DNS/VPN service for some time now.

I love the idea of wireguard, but at the moment it seems out of reach, as it's still acknowledged by the developers as unstable code as of March 2019. A quote from them: > WireGuard is not yet complete. You should not rely on this code. It has not undergone proper degrees of security auditing and the protocol is still subject to change. We're working toward a stable 1.0 release, but that time has not yet come.

While this was true in March 2019, WireGuard 1.0 was released in March 2020 and added into the Linux 5.6 kernel in the same month. WireGuard passed a third-party audit before this.
