Abstract:

This specification defines the technical requirements for an interface unit IU which connects a host central system to a secured front-end processor SFEP. The IU transfers information across a single multiplexed channel according to IU command information contained in data control words. By using certified software resident in the central system and SFEP, the IU provides a method of handling multiple levels of security information. The IU provides a data format adapter capable of binary or ASCII operation which converts between a 36-bit central system word and a 16-bit SFEP word. An extended interface option is described which allows IUcentral system interface lengths to be increased to 2000 feet.
