Abstract

As of 2014, an estimated 8.7 million United States citizens live overseas (USDS). Many of these individuals would like to enjoy an internet browsing experience similar to the one they had in the United States. To address this concern, Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) are used; however, they are inconvenient if one wishes to access something in the country they are in, such as their local bank or a local video player. This results in a great deal of inefficiency and needlessly slows down a residential network. The technology to seamlessly integrate a solution to this issue is currently under development at Sabai Technologies, where this project was conducted. The implementation of destination-based routing seeks to create a method where individuals can utilize a VPN and only tunnel websites that they know they wish to access via a United States through the private network, and everything else would be tunneled through the local network. This would increase the marketability of any software where it is implemented as it would significantly decrease the amount of steps consumers would have to take to enjoy any content on the internet. A service that many consumers enjoy is the British Broadcasting Company’s online iPlayer. This service is not ordinarily available to people who are not in the United Kingdom. Using various routing methods and a VPN, one is able to route all traffic going to the iPlayer through the tunnel, and allow all other traffic to go through the local network.
