Which VPN protocol should I choose?

Last Updated: October 6, 2021

OysterVPN supports a variety of popular VPN protocols. Lightshell is our in-house VPN protocol built to give the best balance between security and performance.

The complete list of VPN protocols supported by OysterVPN is as follows:

  1. Lightshell
  2. Wireguard
  3. OpenVPN
  4. IKEv2
  5. LT2P/IPsec
  6. PPTP

For the best performance, we recommend using Lightshell or Wireguard. PPTP and L2TP are very old protocols that should not be used if security is a major concern.
