GABRIEL INSTANT SECURE CONNECT Intercepts the domain name look up before it is sent to legacy DNS to determine if it is a SECURE DOMAIN NAME.
GABRIEL SECURE DOMAIN NAME is designated by .scom and can only be accessed by Gabriel authenticated devices which have their own certificate.
As shown in Figure 1, Gabriel’s Instant Secure Connect™ technology intercepts the domain name lookup before it is sent to the legacy DNS and determines if the domain name is a Secure Domain Name. If the domain name is a Secure Domain Name, a Gabriel VPN is created between the requesting device and the destination (or target) device. The VPN uses a secure IP address, which is then returned to the user’s requesting application. This secure IP address is then used by the application to connect to the target device through the VPN. If the requested domain name is not a Secure Domain Name then the domain name lookup request is forwarded to the legacy DNS. As an example, Amazon could have a www.amazon.com legacy domain name and a www.amazon.scom Secure Domain Name.
Comparing Figure 2 with Figure 3, we see how the user utilizes each name in the same way, but in the case of the Secure Domain Name a VPN is automatically established and a secure IP address is returned.
