VPN solution built with WireGuard®

Next Generation Open Source VPN

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.

This TurnKey Linux VPN software appliance leverages the open source WireGuard® software (installed from Debian repositories). It also includes custom TurnKey configuration tools to support ease of setup. It can link 2 otherwise unconnected LANs and/or secure traffic across public and/or insecure wifi connections and/or provide a secure solution for remote work scenarios.

This appliance includes all the standard features in TurnKey Core, and on top of that:

  • WireGuard® configurations:
    • Initialization hooks to configure common WireGuard® deployments, server key and confgiuration.
    • Deployments include convenience scripts to add clients/profiles, generating all required config.
    • Expiring obfuscated HTTPS urls can be created for clients to download their profiles (especially useful with mobile devices using a QR code scanner).

See the Set up documentation for further details on how to set it up.
