WireGuard

https://www.wireguard.com
Fast and modern virtual private network that utilizes state-of-the-art cryptography.

WireGuard is a virtual private network software. It is built in to the Linux (and linux-libre) kernel by default. It intends to be faster and simpler than IPSec and OpenVPN. While initially released for the Linux kernel, it is now a cross-platform project. Some users consider WireGuard to already be the most secure and easiest to use among all of the VPN solutions.
