WireGuard is an extremely simple yet fast and modern VPN that utilizes state-of-the-art cryptography. It aims to be faster, simpler, 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 plans to be 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.

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.
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.
