Sorry, forgot to copy the list.

If I recall correctly. early in Wireguard’s development, Jason said he was open to licensing his code to match the kernels for which it’s destined (e.g., BSD license for a port to a BSD kernel). That was years ago, but it might be worth inquiring.

Please consult with your lawyers, they will know the answer to this
question.  If you do not have a lawyer, then just release the code to
all of your project to be safe, as obviously there is no assets involved
:)

Good luck!

Hi,

I want to integrate Wireguard to my confidential project. I see Wireguard
source code is under GPLv2, if I add any patch to Wiregaurd source code to
work with my confidentail project, do I need to publish complete source
code along with my project source code ?

Any other pointer how I can start work to integrate Wireguard in my project
will be highly appreciated.

Thanks & Regards,
Bhashkar
