ATEN CS1184 Overview

The CS1184 4-port USB DVI Secure KVM Switch offers secure and reliable access for any government/military desktop environment where security is imperative by providing safe switching between computers operating on different secure networks. NIAP-certified according to common criteria's EAL2+ certification, the CS1184 provides 4-port models for secure desktop workstation use.

Hardware security includes a tamper-evident tape, chassis intrusion detection, and tamper-proof hardware, while software security includes restricted USB connectivity. The non-HIDs (Human Interface Devices) are ignored when switching; an isolated channel per port that makes it impossible for data to be transferred between secure and unsecure computers, and automatically clears the keyboard buffer.

By combining physical security with controlled USB connectivity, the CS1184 gives you the means to consolidate multiple workstations of various security classification levels with one keyboard, monitor, and mouse (KVM) console.
