Mindful of Netgate's exposed position, Donenfeld reached out to core FreeBSD developers Kyle Evans and Matt Dunwoodie, and the three dug in for a mad, week-long sprint to bring the problematic code up to par.
Private Internet Access believes in sponsorship as a way of giving back to the community and is proud to sponsor WireGuard.Because it is a free and open source software (FOSS) project, WireGuard development is supported by developers that donate their time, as well as companies that donate funds.
In March, Private Internet Access rolled out WireGuard® support to our beta testers on PIA desktop clients and mobile apps.WireGuard is officially a go on our Windows, Mac, Linux desktop clients as well as our Android & iOS mobile apps.
Private Internet Access has long had established server-client connection best practices for all of our VPN connection types such as OpenVPN and IPSec. We have added these best practices to our WireGuard implementation to ensure the same no logging VPN service that our users expect and will always get.
WireGuard is a relatively new VPN protocol when compared with the decades old OpenVPN and approaches software development with a different philosophy – do one thing simple and do it well (efficiently).
WireGuard builds on these principles of simplicity and straightforward code that is well documented, and it brings it to VPNs. The goal of the project is be a simple VPN service that can be readily integrated directly into operating systems, with the aim of being faster and safer than current solutions.
