Source Code Repositories and Official Projects

WireGuard is divided into several sub-projects and repositories. The following is a list of official and supported WireGuard projects, along with their status and maintainer. Most repositories are hosted on using free software, though some are hosted on GitHub, at the preference of the maintainer.

Repositories have an associated status:

The project accepts contributions through a variety of means, depending on the preference of the maintainer:

Similar to the policies of, patches submitted should have a Signed-off-by: line, which can be automatically added via git commit -s, and we also generally prefer patches that use your full name.

Repository Description Maintainer Status Contrib
wireguard-linux WireGuard for the Linux kernel. Commits in the devel branch are staged for the upstream net-next tree, and commits in the stable branch are staged for the upstream net tree. Commits in the backport-5.4.y are rebased against Greg KH's stable 5.4.y branch, and provide a backport of WireGuard for that older stable kernel. Jason A. Donenfeld Complete ,
wireguard-tools Cross-platform userspace tools to configure WireGuard implementations, such as the wg(8) and wg-quick(8) programs, alongside useful other programs in contrib/. Jason A. Donenfeld Complete ,
wireguard-linux-compat Backports of the WireGuard kernel module for Linux to 3.10 ≤ kernel ≤ 5.5.y, as an out-of-tree module. Jason A. Donenfeld Complete ,
