The Owl Perimeter Defense Solution family of NERC-CIP compliant appliances comes standard with support for secure one-way file transfer(via a number of file-handling techniques), and the transfer of TCP packet & UDP datagram streams. Operators whose process control systems present these types of formats use the native capabilities of OPDS to transfer data out to business/engineering networks securely.
In the case of Scientech R*Time data transfer, the one-way transfer of UDP datagram streams is the preferred method. Real-time database entries are sent to the Send-only server “side” of the OPDS 1U integrated platform. The UDP information stream is transferred via OPDS embedded DualDiode data diodes across the Owl non-routable protocol break to the OPDS Receive-only server “side,” and on to a corporate network R*Time replicate, again via UDP, for analysis, review and use.
