Safe import of structured data into a segregated network

By January 13, 2021March 11th, 2021No Comments

SAFE IMPORT OF STRUCTURED DATA INTO A SEGREGATED NETWORK

Typically, segregated networks don’t operate in isolation and as each file is handled manually before being released into the segregated network. When hackers try to attack protected networks, they often hide malware in structured data files, such as .xml files, .bmp images and other common file formats, which then get imported into a segregated network.

The Oakdoor™ Import Diode can make file import more efficient and less error prone by automating the check and verification of incoming structured data and confirming it doesn’t contain any unstructured or otherwise potentially malicious elements. The verification criteria are programmed into the Oakdoor™ hardware and can’t be altered. The diode also only allows data to flow one way – for example, data can only enter, not leave, a segregated network.

The Oakdoor™ Import Diode works by verifying that the syntax of the incoming data conforms to the simple data language – SISL. The diode’s hardware then inspects the data structure and releases files that comply with the SISL specification. If the data doesn’t comply with the data structure inspection rules, it’s safely wrapped for separate handling in a safe environment.
