  • The basic operating system has been updated to FreeBSD 12.2-STABLE

  • Implementing the WireGuard Kernel , as mentioned in a previous post on the WireGuard blog

    • WireGuard is a new VPN Layer 3 protocol designed for speed and simplicity
    • The pfSense documentation site includes information on how to configure WireGuard, as well as examples of configuration recipes
  • IPsec enhancements

    • The configuration for the strongSwan IPSec back-end has been changed from the deprecated ipsec.conf / stroke format to the new swanctl / VICI format
    • Various tunnel configuration improvements, including better lifetime and rekey options, to avoid duplicate security associations
  • OpenVPN has been updated to 2.5.0

    • OpenVPN 2.5.0 now requires negotiating data figures, but also tries to be friendly with older customers
    • ChaCha20-Poly1305 is now supported, which is the same cipher used by WireGuard and can provide speed improvements on some platforms.

    • GUI now accepts renewal of certificate manager entries (certification authorities and certificates)
    • Notifications are generated for expiring certificate entries
    • Certificate keys and PKCS # 12 archives can now be exported with password protection
