    This new, long-awaited technology will change how virtual private networks work first in Linux and then the rest of the VPN world. 

    After years of developmentWireGuard, a revolutionary approach to Virtual Private Networks (VPN) was finallyfast-tracked to the Linux kernel. Now, at long last,WireGuard is in Linus Torvald's code tree. That means WireGuard should appear in the Linux kernel 5.6 release. This may be as early as April 2020.

    This has the potential to change everything about VPNs -- not just in Linux, but in the entire VPN world. That's because essentially all VPN services run off Linux servers. Some VPN services, such asStrongVPNandMullvad VPN, have already seen the writing on the wall and aremoving their software stacks to WireGuard.
