'WireGuard is a new type of VPN that aims to be simpler to set up and
maintain than current VPNs and to offer a higher degree of security.
The software is free and open source—it's licensed GPLv2, the same
license as the Linux kernel—which is always a big plus in my book.
It's also designed to be easily portable between operating systems.
All of that might lead you to ask: in a world that already has IPSEC,
PPTP, L2TP, OpenVPN, and a bewildering array of proprietary SSL VPNs,
do we need yet another type of VPN?'
