An experimental snapshot, v0.0.20210317, of WireGuard for the FreeBSD
kernel has been tagged in the git repository:


This is the most recent module as it existed before we thankfully pulled
it from the 13.0 release in order to work on it more slowly here.  At
some point, we'll provide a package in ports for this, but not quite
yet. For now, you can build tags or build master, via:

    # git clone https://git.zx2c4.com/wireguard-freebsd
    # cd wireguard-freebsd/src
    # make load
    # make install

After that, it should be possible to use wg(8) and wg-quick(8) like
usual, but with the faster kernel implementation.

At this time this code is new, unvetted, possibly buggy, and should be
considered "experimental". It might contain security issues. We gladly
welcome your testing and bug reports, but do keep in mind that this code
is new, so some caution should be exercised at the moment for using it
in mission critical environments. In my small testing so far, however,
it seems to "basically work". And at the very least, those relying on
the code that was prior in the FreeBSD tree now have some immediate

Over the next days and weeks, it can be expected that this repository
will improve and grow.
