Default wireguard encryption?

Post by naddel81 »

Hi at all,

what is the Default Security in wireguard (dietpi)?
AES 256bit encryption?

I am wondering because my Pi 2B is roughly managing 50 Mbits jnstead of its Ethernet Speed.

Best wishes

Hi,

Wireguard is installed from Debian apt packages as is. There is nothing special or changed. It's the standard software as provided by WireGuard developer.

cpu utilization is around 20% when benchmarking wireguard through ookla speedtest.
why isn't it used to the max? the Pi could do better, I guess.

should be 100mbit/s (sdsl). but I only get 38 mbit/s when outside. inside it is 55 mbit/s through wireguard and 100 mbit without. cpu is not nearly maxed out.
strange.

You need to also take in consideration the speed degradation when your traffic goes through vpn.
It would be safer to test Wireguard between two devices in the same lan with iperf.
