High Sec Labs’ Audio Diode mitigates the risks of eavesdropping when using peripheral audio devices
High Sec Labs (HSL) announces its new Audio Diodes product line. The Audio Diode effectively blocks the risk of eavesdropping on surrounding classified conversations, when using peripheral audio devices connected to non-classified computers.
The threat of using audio peripherals, stems from the fact that attackers can take control of an audio device to:
• Listen in to classified or sensitive conversations in secure rooms
• Transfer data from secure to unsecured networks
The new HSL Audio Diode connects between a source (a PC usually) and an audio device (speaker/headphone or microphone). The product is designed to assure unidirectional audio flow and filtering of ultrasonic frequencies, preventing attackers from exploiting audio-data leakage.
High Sec Labs (HSL) develops high-quality, cyber-defense solutions in the field of network and peripheral isolation.
The company, headquartered in Caesarea Industry and Business Park, Israel, was founded in 2008 and has a second manufacturing site in the United States.
High Sec Lab’s roots are deeply embedded in the defense industry developing cyber protection solutions for submarines and aircraft. Among its customers are some of the world’s leading governments and defense organizations as well as commercial companies such as banks, healthcare providers, and national infrastructure companies.
Highest Security Compliance
The company’s products are designed to provide the maximum computer and peripheral isolation as demanded by government agencies, military, financial institutions, and similar security-sensitive customers. HSL’s products are built to comply with the highest security standards, including EAL4+ security requirements and the latest National Information Assurance Partnership (NIAP) Protection Profile PSS Ver 3.0 PSS or PSD Ver 4.0 requirements for peripheral sharing switch devices.
Secure Segregation Solutions
HSL’s patented secure segregation solutions include a variety of peripheral sharing switch devices such as KMs, KVMs, and Matrix devices. These enable users to share peripherals between computers that belong to different security classification levels while protecting against data leakage and malicious attacks through shared USB, keyboard, mouse, video, and audio peripherals.
