German BSI grants GEHEIM/SECRET approval for SDoT® Security Gateway 6.0

To protect secret information of official authorities only it security products that are certified by the „German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI)“.
The product SDoT® Security Gateway of INFODAS GmbH is already working bidirectional between two networks with different classifications and is guaranteeing a secure gateway between these networks. The SDoT® Security Gateway makes sure that only information, that is allowed per the confidentiality law (Geheimschutz) can be transferred between those networks.

In the past, the BSI already granted project specific, individual certificates and acknowledged the security value of the product. After several years of joint evaluation, the BSI issued the “general” approval for SECRET (GEHEIM) on 26 April 2017. The SDoT® Security Gateway 6.0 is now based on a fully-adapted, fully-evaluated Microkernel operating system, making it the first and only security gateway on the market for which a full license has been issued for SECRET.

The product is now available to all consumers in the German Armed Forces (Bundeswehr) and public administration. A project-specific application is no longer required.
For the achievement of this extraordinary milestone, INFODAS GmbH would like to thank all the contributors.
