XD Verge

XD Verge is a low SWaP, low-latency, hardware-enforced one-way transfer data diode built on Owl’s revolutionary FPGA-based XDE Radium protocol filtering diode (PFD) module.

ITAR Restrictions
It is the policy of the United States to deny licenses and other approvals for exports and imports of defense articles and defense services, destined for or originating in certain countries. Owl Government Products are restricted by 22 U.S.C. 2778 of the Arms Export Control Act (AECA) and Executive Order 13637. The International Traffic in Arms Regulations ("ITAR," 22 CFR 120-130) implements the AECA. Export Licenses for ITAR controlled items are processed through a form DSP-5 for permanent or temporary export. This includes screening clients that are in associated with Sanctioned or Embargoed countries. Additionally, there are certain "End-Use Controls" which prohibit exports to certain countries.

The Future of Data Diode Technology is Here

XD Verge features a revolutionary FPGA-based architecture utilizing Owl’s XDE Radium embedded data diode module for high throughput, high assurance, and ultra-low latency in a low-SWaP-c solution. Much more than a simple data diode, XD Verge provides hardware-enforced network segmentation and one-way data transfer with protocol filtering and packet header deconstruction.

Packet Filtering and One-Way Data Transfer

  • Guaranteed one-way transfer enforced by FPGA and hardware isolators
  • Protocol break – no routable information is passed between source and destination networks and packet contents are rebuilt in the receive FPGA
  • Packet-by-packet whitelist content filtering
  • Packets with non-compliant content are dropped by the source-side FPGA before being passed across the hardware isolator

Key Hardware-Based Component for RTB Compliance

The latest Raise-the-Bar (RTB) guidelines will require nearly all cross domain connections to classified networks to include a hardware-enforced domain separation by 2023. XD Verge provides hardware-enforced network segmentation with an optical or digital isolator and up to 1 Gbps one-way data flow. And because it does not feature internal CPUs, it is also invulnerable to CPU-based attacks.
