    Phoronix: Android 12 Appears To Support Using WireGuard

    WireGuard has long been available as an app on the Google Play store for those wishing to use this cross-platform, open-source secure VPN tunnel solution on Google's mobile operating system. But for Android 12 it appears there will be a form of official support...

    Still won't mean squat until servers also support it. I don't see that happening in corporate environments anytime soon. (Yes, I know it's happening elsewhere.)

      When have corporate environments ever adopted something good in a reasonable amount of time though?

        Funny, just ten minutes ago i finished my wireguard installation which i will use with android.

        Btw does anyone know if its possible to compress that data for mobile?

          Encrypting compressed data is typically not good idea at all in security point of view.

            I mean, there are several VPN companies which offer WireGuard services already, and I know personally two medium size companies that have deployed WireGuard as both a remote VPN and an office-to-office bridge.

            If IBM isn't deploying it on all their networks yet, that's not a sign of failure really.

              Wire guard insists to solely using chacha and doesn't support aes encryption, which is power efficient hardware accelerated, in many android phones including low end ones

                Last I was aware, none of the major corporate VPN vendors have announced performant wireguard support, which might even require a hardware silicon rev, for enterprise scale VPN servers. Until those vendors have done so, corporations are likely not going to even consider wireguard. So look to your Cisco's, your Fortigate's, your Juniper's (etc.) vendors announcements.

                  It could be because of no aes support in wireguard. Those vendors rely on hardware accelerated aes encryption to get great price to performance ratio.

                    This is a completely theoretical threat for absolute majority of deployments and use-cases out there.
