  • lightway-laser

    Lightway Laser is a reference point-to-point Linux client/server implementation for Lightway Core.

  • We have released a reference implementation that uses Lightway Core to create both a client and a server. It can be found here:

    https://github.com/expressvpn/lightway-laser

    Lightway Core is designed specifically to be embeddable and to work well on any platform without making assumptions about how that platform works (i.e. OpenVPN assumes a tun-like device).

    The comparison to WolfSSL is a good one because it was inspired by their library's design. As WolfSSL is to SSL, Lightway Core is to VPN tunnels. Just like WolfSSL, how you use Lightway Core is really up to you.

    For example, if you wanted to create a VPN that connects over Google Sheets or uses DNS messages, you’d be able to do that easily with Lightway Core.
