Infinity Cyber Security Feature
The Infinity cyber security feature extends the existing powerful networking and firewalling features of the Infinity platform, which offer advanced traffic control and fine-grained network segregation.
The Infinity cyber security feature consists of a lightweight but comprehensive traffic analyzer which monitors any traffic that traverses the vessel-based Infinity server and, upon detecting a potential threat, instructs the Infinity firewall to activate appropriate counter-measures, (such as blocking all traffic from any IP address that performs a scan/attack for a specified amount of time).
Besides acting on identified or suspected threats, it also records its findings and provides detailed information. This Intrusion Detection/Intrusion Prevention Systems (IDS/IPS) will help to protect vessels from external threats, and it is all managed from the centralized management console incorporated in the Infinity HUB interface.
The management console is part of the Infinity platform administrative backend and is the central location where administrators enable/disable/configure the service and browse collected information. A carefully selected number of configuration options are available and there are options for whitelisting IPs/networks, enabling/disabling detection rule categories and even individual detection rules. Blocking/unblocking actions are recorded along with useful information (time, description of threat etc).
