  • Fast: Uses WireGuard® to be 3-4 times faster than OpenVPN.
  • SSO Integration: Authenticate using any identity provider with an OpenID Connect (OIDC) connector.
  • No dependencies: All dependencies are bundled thanks to Chef Omnibus.
  • Simple: Takes minutes to set up. Manage via a simple CLI.
  • Secure: Runs unprivileged. HTTPS enforced. Encrypted cookies.
  • Firewall included: Uses Linux nftables to block unwanted egress traffic.


Firezone is not:

  • An inbound firewall
  • A tool for creating mesh networks
