NETIMON

NETIMON is a Mediation Device assuring the connection between the network components of ICT service providers and the LEMF (Law Enforcement Monitoring Facility) of the LEA (Law Enforcement Agency). It is capable of the audio and data surveillance of PSTN and PLMN networks (CS – Circuit Switched and PS – Packet Switched network).

The principal features of NETIMON Mediation Device:

  • Conceals the service provider’s network from the LEA.
  • Provides a single channel access to the service provider’s subsystem.
  • It is capable of simultaneously handling several LEAs. Supports rights management between LEAs. Super LEA function. (An appointed LEA can be granted access to the data of the others.)
  • Multi level rights management.
  • Advanced logging system.
  • Continuous adaptive network component and intelligent load supervision in the background.
  • The users can assign unique identifiers to the monitored data.
  • Support of both FILE (FTP, SCP, SFTP), and STREAM (TCP, UDP) based communication.
  • Standard HI interface.
  • Easily replaceable X interface.

The operation of the system:

NETIMON Mediation Device is connected to the service provider’s network components through an X interface and through an HI interface to the monitoring centre. These connections are established through encrypted channels. Both the X and the HI interface can be divided into three levels:

1. Administration and management communicatin
2. Interception Related Information (IRI)
3. Content of Communication (CC)

After having accepted the provisioning commands through the LEA interface, the system performs the provisioning in the service provider’s network through the X interface, then the intercepted traffic is converted into HI format and conveyed to the relevant LEA. Data conversion between the interfaces is implemented by the system without losses.

The HI↔X conversion is provided by the NETIMON system. Mapping is unambiguous only in the case of conversions between X2→HI2 and X3→HI3, it is up to the NETIMON subsystem to decide whether X1→HI1 and/or a HI1→X1 mapping is necessary or not.

Besides HI1 interface providing automatic management, NETIMON also has a command line interface (CLI) for manual management of the system. In order to assure confidential data handling NETIMON stores the handled data only in the memory, and does not save it to HDD. Unique competitive advantages:

  • Single identifiers can be assigned to the captured data by the LEA.
  • Asynchronous operation. (The HI and the X interface operate independently.)
  • Inter-LEA authorization management, Super LEA function.
  • Advanced adaptive network component supervision, intelligent load supervision.

System support:

Full service and maintenance support is provided for the product, including support over phone, on-the-site error recovery and version update.

NETIPHONE

According to our observations there is an emerging demand both from the sides of governmental institutes and companies operating in the commercial sector for the encrypted communication, using public networks. The main goal is the secure transmission of classified information, no matter if it is verbally spoken, multimedia, or data communication. Furthermore the headquarter needs to have the ability to monitor and intercept the secure communication. Above the communication features the secure access to corporate applications and mailing is also a basic requirement. During these types of transmissions, the information must not get outside the trusted environment or be saved on the client terminals. There are existing products on the market that are partly able to handle some of the above-mentioned needs but NETIPHONE™ is directly designed to deliver all these required functions. On top of that NETIPHONE™ is a user friendly, easy-to-use application with plenty of useful tools that makes communicating through secure channels as simple as the everyday mobile telephony.

The central VoIP server provides the secure verbal communication between the connected terminals. Secure mailing and usage of central services – e.g. file transfer – are also available by the NETIPHONE™ system. Intercepting the secure communication and monitoring the usage of the system according to system logs is also a basic feature of NETIPHONE™.

Services of the system

The design and creation of NETIPHONE™ was according to real and actual business needs so besides the secure vocal communication and data transmission the system has several related services, which are as follows: Functionality:

  • Reaching central applications through remote desktop
  • Encrypted verbal communication
  • Automatic text message notification to the called but currently not connected user
  • Centrally stored Phonebook
  • Centrally stored Log of missed, received and dialled calls
  • System notifications about missed calls and newly received e-mails

Security:

  • Centrally stored sensitive information. Password protected identifiers on the client.
  • AES256 encryption
  • Separated inner and outer audio communication – blocked secure network audio communication functions during the usage of public network
  • Password protected key and set-up information on the mobile client
  • Cloud applications, central data storage

Management and monitoring:

  • Event logs
  • Incident logs
  • Data retention
  • Central configuration and manageability

Advantages of the system

Bearer independent encrypted channel – voice, media, data

NETIPHONE™ is able to provide encrypted voice, media and data communication as well as access to central applications at the same time. Furthermore the system is able to operate on any data communication channel that fits the minimal system requirements (e.g. channel quality). Central functions

Since the system communicates through a central server it is possible to manage and monitor the communication centrally and also to apply server based applications. Due to centralized functions, the sensitive data that is crucial for the operation of the system is stored on secure storage

User-friendly interface

The remote desktop application of NETIPHONE™ has a simple user interface that provides basic functions. It is optimised for the display of mobile phones. Separated public and closed telephone functions, common resources

NETIPHONE™ can be installed on normal commercial mobile phones it does not require any special appliance. The encrypted voice communication will immediately be suspended in case of an incoming open network call. After the dismissal or termination of the open network call the system returns to the encrypted communication automatically.

ONEWAYER

Secure one-way street

Onewayer is an IT protection tool, which offers a strictly single-way data communication from a lower to a higher security level IT environment. The Onewayer maintains the physical separation of the higher security level environment and, at the same time, can satisfy the information demand of the higher security level IT environment in real time, in a controlled way without the need to apply any resources. Its usage is strongly advised in cases where the members of an organization are to send information frequently into a high security internal IT environment from an external source of low or unknown security level. The use of the system ensures the information transmission into the internal environment so that it physically prevents any data theft or leakage on the established connection.. Onewayer is the secure, one-way street of IT data transmission.

OneWayer has been evaluated and certified at high security level according to MIBÉTS methodology (complying with CC EAL4)" Certificate

The system consists of the following units:

  • Onewayer one-way data transmission tool
  • Low Security Level Server (LSLS)
  • High Security Level Server (HSLS)

The system copies the selected directories from LSLS side to HSLS side.

Functionality

The information stored on LSLS module of Onewayer is streamed to Onewayer which receives and „one-ways” it for the HSLS module. The transmitted file system or directory will be restored from the stream by HSLS module. Usability

Standard interfaces support the communication of the system. GUI helps the user at LSLS side to select files to be transmitted and to compose the stream. The opto-electronic coupler installed in Onewayer transmits the received dataflow. GUI helps the user at HSLS side as well to manage the received files and arrange them into directories. Reliability

The opto-electronic coupler provides the galvanic separation of the LSLS and HSLS side by its nature . The system excludes the illegal electromagnetic data leakage by its design. Hardware based network noise filter is installed at network connection. The HW units of the system are tamper-protected. In case of opening a unit it will become temporarily disabled and can be activated by the system administrator only. Error correcting code is used during the file transmission. The transmitted information remain stored on both the sender and receiver servers until pre-determined time only. After the expiration of the storage time the files are deleted automatically. In case of irreparable errors the receiver side may send notification to the sender one on external channels (e.g. e-mail). In order to guarantee the hardware, software, physical security of the system a Wathcdog service is operated. Performance

The system handles gigabit level traffic. The size and amount of the files practically have no effect on the performance. Supportability

The system supports setting up several user levels (administrator, user and auditor) by an authorization management function. The servers can be managed by local console and/or remote access (SSH). The application can be configured via web based management GUI. The system logs its activity and stores it in a local database or a syslog server.
