Using AirVPN with SSL Tunnel
SSL Tunnel are done with stunnel, a multiplatform SSL Tunneling Proxy, open-source released under
GNU GPL 2 license.
Under Windows we provide a portable .zip version.

Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), are cryptographic protocols that provide communication security over the Internet. OpenVPN is already a VPN solution based on SSL/TLS. However, Deep Packet Inspection lets your ISP recognize the you are using an OpenVPN connection. Adding an additional SSL to connect OpenVPN over SSL is useful in all cases in which you wish to have all the security and features of OpenVPN, while at the same time you don't want to let your ISP know that you're using OpenVPN, at the price of a performance hit.
