-# WireGuard — fast, modern, secure kernel VPN tunnel
-#### by [Jason A. Donenfeld](mailto:Jason@zx2c4.com) of [Edge Security](https://www.edgesecurity.com/)
+# WireGuard for Linux 3.10 - 5.5
-WireGuard is a novel VPN that runs inside the Linux Kernel and 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. It runs over UDP.
+WireGuard was merged into the Linux kernel for 5.6. This repository contains a backport of WireGuard for kernels 3.10 to 5.5, as an out of tree module.
