Abstract:

This report describes a secure computer network switch, wherein a network switch is enclosed in a material which not only reflects electromagentic waves but also absorbs them. this arrangement keeps all network signals confined to the switch enclosure and prevents electromagnetic radiation from the network cable connections. this allows a single computer to have access to multiple networks without vulnerability to theft or unauthorized disclosure of data between the networks.
