TechConnect Innovation Program

Authenticated Sensor Interface Device

Savannah River National Laboratory, SC, United States

TECHNOLOGY SUMMARY

Researchers at SRNL have developed a device to read data, encrypt the information and distribute it electronically to multiple locations, providing one-way data pathway which segregates each destination to prevent cross-party manipulation. ASID allows for secure collection of data using electrically isolated circuitry and accepted methods of authentication and encryption.

Primary Application Area: IT, Cyber-Security, Software

Technology Development Status: Prototype

Technology Readiness Level: TRL 5

FIGURES OF MERIT

Value Proposition: In previous “data diode” devices, data is sensitive to external attack and manipulation and no integrated data authentication is performed. The ASID has minimal intrusion points and robust data privacy. Additionally ASID permits authentication, transmission, and sharing of data collected from many industrial processors, sensors, monitors, or data collection devices.
