Introduction to NetBird


NetBird is an Open-Source Zero Trust Networking platform that allows you to create secure private networks for your organization or home. We designed NetBird to be simple and fast, requiring near-zero configuration effort and leaving behind the hassle of opening ports, complex firewall rules, VPN gateways, etc.

There is no centralized VPN server with NetBird - your computers, devices, machines, and servers connect to each other directly over a fast encrypted tunnel. It creates a high-performance point-to-point WireGuard® overlay network that connects machines running anywhere in just a few clicks.

It literally takes less than 5 minutes to deploy a secure point-to-point VPN with NetBird.
