An Isolated Network for Research



Bibliographic Information


An isolated network is critical to the successful analysis of vulnerabilities and attack tools. Maintaining such a network introduces issues of policy and implementation which conflict with the need to transport data from the Internet to the network. This paper describes the goals of one isolated network, the policy and implementation that satisfies those goals, and other considerations to protect the confidentiality of data and programs on the isolated network.
