Like the ECDS-FT01 from which it is derived, the ECDS-PT01 is a two-server, enterprise solution, using a dedicated send-only server and a dedicated receive only server. The servers are connected with Owl’s proprietary data diode technology to create a deterministic one-way only data transfer path. Data diode hardware provides a complete non-routable protocol break, assurance of confidentiality, and network isolation.
To support the maximum throughput of a 10 Gbps network, the ECDS-PT01 operates two Dual Diode pairs running in parallel serving a single internal data transfer channel. All Ethernet frames are ingested from the source network and relayed to the destination network unchanged and without filtering. Due to the lack of data filters to configure or audit, use cases related to CDS data filter administration and data transfer auditing are also eliminated. Elimination of use cases for privileged users also eliminates the need for privileged user administration interfaces, further limiting potential access to the device.
