ITWorld: How to bridge and secure air gap networks

The state of the art on Air Gap networks is changing with both better protective  technologies and sneakier threats that take advantage of some very elegant and extreme hacks. One of the more interesting security best practices is about to get turned on its head, thanks to some cutting-edge research at a small Israeli think tank and elsewhere. The notion is called an “air gap network” and the idea is to isolate a PC from the big bad Internet and any other communications networks so as to have complete security with the information that resides therein.

I talk about some of the latest research coming out of Israel on how to defeat these networks in a piece for ITWorld today.
