WireGuard uses a set of simple but powerful protocols to make the VPN connections it establishes both extremely secure and quite robust.

WireGuard has also undergone (and passed) many different formal verifications, including “Symbolic Verification of Protocol using Tamarin”, “Computational Proof of Protocol in eCK Model” and “Computational Proof of Protocol in ACCE Model”. These include checks of properties such as:
