Tempest is a National Security Agency specification and NATO certification referring to spying on information systems through leaking emanations, including unintentional radio or electrical signals, sounds, and vibrations. The Tempest tested & certified IHSE KVM extender series 487 meets the criteria of NATO SDIP-27 Level B / Zone 1 in accordance with the Zone short measurement. Zone 1 environments assume that an attacker cannot get closer than about 20 m from the device. Leaking electromagnetic emanations are reduced to a minimum, preventing sensitive information from interception and reconstruction by hackers. The IHSE Tempest KVM extenders can thus be safely operated in Zone 1 environments including such highly secured areas like national intelligence services and military intelligence.
