WireGuard in 2022: The Secure, Simple VPN Baked into your Linux Kernel

If you’re looking for a fast, simple, and secure VPN solution, look no further than WireGuard. This new protocol has been gaining a lot of traction lately, and for good reason: it’s incredibly easy to set up and use. In this blog post, we’ll show you how to get started with WireGuard on your Linux system.

What is WireGuard?

WireGuard is a VPN protocol that uses the latest wire-based cryptographic techniques to secure your connection. It’s extremely fast and lightweight, making it ideal for use on mobile devices or systems with limited resources. WireGuard is also incredibly simple to set up and use, which makes it perfect for those who are new to VPNs.

To get started with WireGuard, you’ll need to install the wireguard-tools package on your Linux system.

Once you’ve done that, you can use the wg command-line tool to generate a public/private key pair for your device.

Once you have your keys, you’ll need to add them to the WireGuard configuration file.

The configuration file is very simple and straightforward, and we’ll show you an example of what it looks like below.

After you’ve generated your keys and added them to the configuration file, all you need to do is start the WireGuard service and add your VPN connection.

That’s it! You’re now ready to start using WireGuard on your Linux system. We hope this blog post has been helpful and that you’ll give WireGuard a try. Thanks for reading!
