Application: Hostname based reverse split tunnel with wildcard support (Patent ID: US20230421538A1)

The patent filed by Cloud Software Group Inc. describes a system and method for implementing hostname-based split tunneling of client-side network traffic. The solution involves a driver on a client receiving packets from an application with a destination hostname, then receiving real and spoofed IP addresses from an agent to exclude certain traffic from a VPN tunnel. The driver also interacts with DNS responses to manipulate packet traffic, ensuring the application includes the spoofed IP address when necessary.

The method and device outlined in the patent allow for efficient management of network traffic by selectively routing packets through a VPN tunnel based on hostnames. By utilizing real and spoofed IP addresses, the system ensures that specific traffic is excluded from the VPN tunnel, enhancing network performance and security. The patent details the interactions between the driver, agent, application, and DNS responses to facilitate this split tunneling process, providing a comprehensive solution for optimizing client-side network traffic.
