ZeroTier One is an Ethernet virtualization engine built upon a peer to peer protocol with built-in authentication and encryption. It’s a bit like VXLAN and other Ethernet virtualization protocols, but is designed to work over both local LANs and the open Internet. It supports automatic UDP NAT traversal for peer to peer connectivity.
Its long term goal is to blend the features of both VPN and SDN. OpenFlow support is planned for a future release. It’s already on the market as a peer to peer VPN solution targeting personal and small business use, and is also being used as a virtual networking solution in small heterogenous cloud deployments.
It’s open source. See https://www.zerotier.com/ and https://github.com/zerotier/ZeroTierOne for the code.
