Abstract:

The ISI Tunnel allows sites that are hidden behind firewalls , also known as gatekeepers or mail-bridges , to have IP-based internet access without being open to attacks over the internet. The Tunnel is a special router that provides smooth seamless internet access from a closed environment, the inside , to the outside while restricting the access from the outside to the inside. The advantage of the Tunnel, in comparison with traditional firewalls, is that it supports any IP-based communication not just terminal access, file transfer, and electronic mail.
