OPDS-Talon was engineered to be a comprehensive suite of software that supports the entire OPDS product line, running on DIN rail units, 1U small form factor units, and enterprise servers. OPDS-Talon runs on the following hardware products: OPDS-100D, 100, and 1000, and EPDS. The core proxies it supports are: Remote File Transfer, FTP, UDP, TCP, Syslog, SMTP, SNMP Traps, UDP unicast, UDP multicast, and UDP broadcast. OPDS-Talon also provides an extensible foundation for flexible support of a broad range of protocols and interfaces, such as OPC, Modbus, OSIsoft® PI System, and AVEVA Wonderware®, to satisfy various OT requirements.
One-way data transfer is enforced in the Owl data diode hardware to protect the integrity of the source network. OPDS-Talon uses a simple menu-based administration system to define interfaces and data flows operating with source and destination networks. It features a hardened Linux operating system that follows Center for Internet Security (CIS) benchmarks. These functionalities enable secure, deterministic one-way data flows.
