Security across different networks and between different nations and groups usually requires classified solutions. But thanks to the SecureOne user-defined cross-domain guard from Rockwell Collins, data security can be maintained between networks with different security classifications, greatly easing the task of transferring sensitive data. The flexible cross-domain guard was launched at the recent Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation and Education Conference (I/ITSEC 2018) in Orlando. The solution also supports increasingly complex training between branches of the armed forces (due to tight cybersecurity requirements).
“Today’s training ranges need a solution that supports secure and simultaneous sharing of data across networks of different classification levels—Top Secret through Unclassified—to provide greater interoperability,” said Troy Brunk, vice president and general manager of Communication, Navigation & Electronic Warfare Solutions for Rockwell Collins. “The SecureOne User-defined Cross Domain Guard provides a modular design that lets customers use units individually or collectively to meet these requirements.”
The innovative cross-domain solution (CDS) builds on Rockwell Collins’ long experience working with multiple independent levels of security (MILS). When combined with the firm’s SecureOne MILS Encryptor, data flows remain secure even when conducted between unclassified networks. The SecureOne cross-domain guar is a commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) CDS is currently available in the U.S. and select other locations (such as Canada and the United Kingdom) with international availability in 2020.
