Hi Florian,
Currently OVS doesn't support Wireguard, but I think it worth taking a look.
My understanding is that Wireguard has better integration in Linux
kernel than IPsec.
With Wireguard, OVS can create a wireguard linux netdev with configurations,
and send/receive packets to/from it. It is like how OVS uses the Linux
tunnel netdev
