  • SNGW

    SNGW A SmokeNet Gateway (SNGW) is a SmokeNet device that provides a connection between a local network and a SmokeNet network.

  • Gateway

    Gateway A gateway is a network device that provides the ability to transmit and receive traffic between networks.

  • PAWS

    PAWS Partitioned Access WorkStation (PAWS) is a technology that allows a single computer to present a unified user interface to separate, partitioned operating systems while preventing data from moving between the two. This allows for secure connections and non-secure connections to be shown on the same screen seamlessly without issues.

  • Frequency Hopping

    Frequency Hopping Frequency Hopping is a type of Moving Target Defense that was invented during World War II to keep enemies from tracking or jamming radio controlled torpedoes by repeatedly changing the radio frequencies used.


    ARPANET ARPANET was the original experimental network, funded by the US Department of Defense, that ultimately evolved into what we know as the Internet.

  • Quantum Threat

    Quantum Threat The quantum threat is the looming threat that quantum computers will be able to break encryption at speeds not seen before, rendering standardized encryption useless.

  • Quantum Computer

    Quantum Computer A quantum computer is a computer that leverages quantum mechanics to perform complex calculations. Quantum computers use qubits, which are “bits” with multiple possible positions, while classical computers are only capable of using real bits, which are limited to two positions. Quantum computers can solve certain problems faster because of the additional positions […]
