That won't happen until they make a secure, stable, and audited release. See

They have made a secure and audited release.
We'd prefer to use pfSense but are using OpenWRT for wireguard support.

#4 Updated by Soren Stoutner 4 months ago

For those who might not be following it, WireGuard is going to be integrated into the Linux kernel 5.6 release, which means both that it is at a point where it is considered ready for general consumption and that use of WireGuard is likely to become much more common in the next couple of years.

#5 Updated by Jim Pingle 4 months ago

We are fully aware. It's good news for them, but that does not mean much of anything for its implementation or stability on FreeBSD (yet).

#6 Updated by Ter Ted 4 months ago

Thats sad, I really hope WireGuard could be implemented in pfSense as soon as possible. The performance and security advantage over OpenVPN/Strongswan is huge. Strongswan had a lot of vulnerabilities, the implementation is way to complex. Could the priority of this issue be raised?

#7 Updated by Aaron Shaffer 2 months ago

PLEASE add WireGuard support! Thank you.

#8 Updated by Guy Godfroy 2 months ago

Now that wireguard is officially linux upstream, which is a proof of trust to a certain level, you may want to reconsider your decision. I know Wireguard is still considered WIP, but it takes a lots of trust to be merged in the linux kernel.

See note 5 on this issue:

Linux is not FreeBSD.
