Abstract : A data diode is a computer security device that restricts the communication along a network connection between two computers so that data can only be transmitted in one direction. This enables more sensitive or highly classified computer networks to receive data directly from a less secure source while prohibiting the transmission of data in the opposite direction. This paper discusses several ways to implement a data diode and some implications of the alternatives.
