+# WireGuard — fast, modern, secure kernel VPN tunnel
+#### by [Jason A. Donenfeld](mailto:Jason@zx2c4.com) of [Edge Security](http://www.edgesecurity.com/)
+WireGuard is a novel VPN that runs inside the Linux Kernel and utilizes **state-of-the-art [cryptography](doc/protocol.md)**. 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.
