Embed ZeroTier directly into your app
A library version of the popular ZeroTier One, libzt makes it easy to securely connect devices, servers, cloud VMs, containers, and apps everywhere and manage them at scale. Now you can bake this ability directly into your app or service using your preferred language or framework. We provide a BSD socket-like API supporting
SOCK_RAW to make the integration simple. There's also no longer any need for system-wide virtual interfaces. This connection is exclusive to your app and fully encrypted via the Salsa20 cipher.
Pre-Built Binaries Here: zerotier.com/download.shtml.

Bindings for various languages
Building (linux, macos, bsd, win, ios)
git submodule init git submodule update make static_lib make tests
All targets will output to
build/. Complete instructions here
Testing and Debugging
- See TESTING.md
Please make pull requests against the
dev branch. The
master branch is release, and
edge is for unstable and work in progress changes and is not likely to work.
- Commercial, with BSD license, build using
lwIPnetwork stack with
STACK_LWIP=1, then contact us directly via
email@example.com discuss commercial licensing.
- Personal, with GPL license, build using
picoTCPnetwork stack with
STACK_PICO=1, everything is free. Have fun.
Regardless of which network stack you build with, the socket API will remain the same.
