Jumping Air Gaps

If you think an air gap prevents communication out of and into your industrial control system, you are wrong.

We’ll be exploring various ways to send data across an air-gap in Industrial Control Systems and other environments, including a live demo.

Is it really possible to send data across an air-gap where no network has been connected? (No we’re not talking about wifi, bluetooth, wirelessHART etc.)

Can it be done without physical modification to your existing plant?

Can we get that paragon of virtue- a data diode -to pass information in both directions without physically touching it?

Find out.
