I did a less-than-thorough search on the web, but was wondering if Fortinet has plans to integrate Wireguard VPN in their Fortigates? We've all had some sports with IPSEC tunnels that drop and never come back - might be time to embrace the future. :)
Agreed. The level of consensus among network professionals that Wireguard is becoming *the* VPN protocol of choice is nothing short of breathtaking. Support for Wireguard is already becoming part of our decision-making process when choosing equipment for a build.
Mikrotik and pfSense are already there, by the way.
Please integrate Wireguard into Fortinet products immediately.
Mikrotik, pfsense, openwrt, opnsense already support it
1. bigger RAM, as low end model such as 61F will got Conserve Mode when many feature on
2. USB-C for console port since USB-A cable more expensive than USB-C cable
PA CP, Cisco has USB-C console port. Why not Forti follow the same trend
This should be implemented. This can make it possible to actually get micro-segmentation with fortigate-firewalling on clients and servers. If it doesn't get implemented, NSX and Nebula and others are gonna take market shares here. IPSEC is de-facto only until WireGuard comes along, and we're getting there. The question is if you wanna be the dinosaur that haven't followed along or be on-top of it and use it as a sales point.
I'd say Wireguard is in "early majority" in the Bell tech-adoption curve right now..
If you open a case @ fortinet TAC support in the meantime it can help
Fortinet generally do not give support on design for projects in delivery, so to open a case like this one, it can be a good idea to ask support on the chat (like : How to configure a wireguard VPN on my FortiGate ?). The level 0 operator of the chat will not know and he will propose you to open a case at next TAC support level for a senior engenieer to answer.
This way, I get some support on design or on New Feature Request (NFR) which I cannot have the regular way.
I will also ask Fortinet to include Wireguard in FortiOS and I will also ask for 2 others features :
- How to use FortiGate behind a proxy server (socks / squid & VPN endpoint) for some particular networks connected on the FortiGate interface (feature does not exist in FortiOS 7.0.0 ...)
- How to fix IPv6 addresses uing dhcp6 on the Fortigate (reserve-address feature does not exist in FortiOS 7.0.0 ...)
The Fortinet Security Fabric brings together the concepts of convergence and consolidation to provide comprehensive cybersecurity protection for all users, devices, and applications and across all network edges.
