Secure One-Way Information Transfer
Owl DualDiode® Technology Information Exchange Gateway Data Diodes
Secure, reliable, information sharing with complete protection against data leakage
Sharing information between networks of different security levels & policies has never been more challenging, nor more important. Data volumes increase, more data types (from sensor telemetry to streaming video to high-resolution image files) become necessary to share. At the same time, threats to information security become more frequent and more malicious.
Military and intelligence organisations, government agencies, the power-generation & distribution industries – all must address these issues. With over 1000 deployments of our hardware-enforced transfer systems, Owl Computing offers the most extensive and reliable solutions to meet customers’ secure-transfer needs.
To meet our customers´ cybersecurity needs, Owl products:
• Transfer information one-way with absolute data confidentiality
• Transfer information from multiple data sources and in multiple data types, across a single Owl DualDiode system
• Employ the Owl non-routable protocol break as an electronic "air gap" between network domains
• Assure the integrity of data transfer with Common Criteria EAL-4 certified Owl hardware
• Provide confidence with TUV – certified operational safety
Specially designed hardware and software make up a basic Owl system
Owl Communication Cards (Send-only
), with Owl–designed drivers, installed in individual server platforms, form a dual in–line diode; each card is manufactured to permit one way data transfer. An Owl installation ensures that no information of any kind, including handshake protocols (TCP/IP, SCSI, serial/parallel port, etc.), passes from the destination Receive–only network back to the source Send–only network.
Owl application specific software completes an Owl system. Owl software is mounted on both Send-only and Receive-only platforms. Send–only software converts user data to Owl format for transfer; Receive–only software restores user data to original type and format. Owl applications support a broad range of data types – files and directory structures, TCP/IP packet streams, UDP/IP datagram traffic, and UNIX syslog messages and SNMP TRAPs. Multiple data streams and multiple data types may be transferred over the same set of Owl hardware and software.
Owl Communication Cards are certified to Common Criteria EAL-4
