Owl Computing Technology announced today that its newest high-speed DualDiode controlled interface, Owl 2500, received Common Criteria Certification Evaluation Assurance Level 4.
Common Criteria is an internationally standardized framework for matching end-user security requirements with vendor product specifications. For the United States, National Security Telecommunications and Information Systems Security Policy No. 11 mandates that agencies use Common Criteria-evaluated equipment and software for networks carrying sensitive information.
The Owl 2500 interface allows the exchange of data across domains with different security classifications and can be combined with application-specific Owl software to support the sharing of multiple types of high-speed data.
The interface has a link speed of 2.488 Gbps and a data throughput capability of more than 240 Mbps, Owl said. It is the controlled interface for many of the vendor's newest cross-domain transfer systems, including the High-Capacity File Transfer System and High-Capacity Network Transfer System.
