What Is VPN Tunnels?

By now you have known the basic knowledge of X-VPN. Today let us talk about some deep thinking topic: What are VPN tunnels?

VPN tunnels are protocols that maintain network connections while encapsulating and encrypting the transferred data. It is an encrypted connection between your device and the server of your VPN service. Since your connection is encapsulated and encrypted, nobody can intercept, monitor, or alter your traffic. 

When you are surfing the Internet, a common scenario is you are sending traffic outside. Without encryption, your message, such as your personal information, data, and locations are totally exposed. And anyone who wants to intercept or censor your information, ranging from hackers, ISPS and governments, can get all your messages easily.

What do VPN tunnels do?

Once you got the VPN service. On your connection to the VPN service, packets constructed in a specific VPN protocol format are encapsulated within some other base or carrier protocol, then transmitted between VPN client and server. When the VPN server receives your message, it will decrypt the message and forward it to its final recipient, like your target websites etc. So that is the VPN tunnel. All your data is traveling in a VPN tunnel that nobody can look into. This protects your browsing, chatting, and all the other traffic from the prying eye.

Besides, a VPN tunnel not only protects your from data-stealing, it also hides your IP address, which can otherwise be used to identify you when browsing the web. Your connection to the VPN servers and your traffic is received by them followed by re-sending to your target websites.  Your IP address has been replaced with the address of the VPN service. The sites you visit will only see the location of the VPN server you are connecting to with no clue of where your activity originated. So although the data sent from the VPN server to the destination website is not encrypted, your private IP address has been replaced already.

This is how VPN tunnels can help you both circumvent censorship imposed on your local network and being imposed by the local network of the site you are visiting.

How to choose VPN tunnels?

Now there are different ways that the data is encrypted and the VPN tunnels have advanced over time—that’s why we see a variety of options, such as OpenVPN, L2TP/IPsec, SSTP, PPTP and so on. But it is widely accepted by the experts that OpenVPN and IPsec are the most secured ones.
