Subject description: fast, modern, secure VPN tunnel
 

https://www.wireguard.io/

Still under heavy development :
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

You can install it, but only for testing purposes (for Dog-based OS and advanced users) :

Well, it's open source so that's a positive. I'll need to do more research though. I'll probably look for openVPN first if I decide to get a VPN but I'll keep this in mind as a second option. Another popular piece of VPN software is called bitmask. Bitmask is offered by riseup.net

Does anyone have an invite for [url=]riseup.net[/url]? One downside of bitmask though is that you can't use it if you want to tunnel through tor into your VPN.
