Hi,

it seems activities adding Wireguard to the Linux kernel have stopped because of lack of audits and cryptographic weakness tests.
I suggest to offer adding Zinc/Wireguard to the Linux kernel staging tree to make it easily available for testing and auditing.

Regards,

Renne

That is not why it has stopped.

It's easy to test and audit today, adding it to staging is not going to
help that out any, sorry.

thanks,

Indeed don't add it to staging.

Efforts to upstream certainly haven't stopped. There's some work that needs
to be done. We're doing that work.
