CheatPunch is a computer program that is designed to detect software used for cheating in online games. It was made for the game Rust to stop cheaters. Currently, not much is known about the anti-cheat however it will periodically (anywhere between 5 to 120 minutes) send screenshots, game version, your SteamID and other information to the host gsin256345.elasticbeanstalk.com. The Rust server also seems to send data to the same host with a different GET parameter (/?r=s is the server, /?r=c is the client).
One of the bypass methods is to append your hosts file located at C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts with the following: 127.0.0.1 gsin256345.elasticbeanstalk.com According to a post made on the official Rust forum by a developer, you will not get banned if you for whatever reason cannot connect to the CheatPunch server.
