I would love to run Wireguard on my Mikrotik and decided, with all the news spread across the forum, to combine some posts in a new thread.
is a encrypted tunnel technology, started in 2016 but not 1.0 yet. Wireguard will probably replace OpenVPN which is currencly only partially supported
by Mikrotik anyway.
It is already being adopted: easily available in Linux, VPN providers like AzireVPN support it and open source routers like Ubiquity and OpenWRT show good performance
Mikrotik, being Linux based but closed source
, will start supporting it in the future and it may end up in v7
. V7 may be an april fools joke from 2014, but it may also be in development for more then 3 years
making the feature list very unpredictable at this point.
I have not been able to find any post by a Mikrotik employee on the subject yet, but interesting posts by other users are:
