KVM over IP Security

Security considerations and implementation in KVM over IP technology.

This white paper discusses the security concerns connected with KVM over IP remote control products, and presents the purpose built security architecture of the ADDERLink IP product.

Traditional KVM switches enable KVM (Keyboard, Video monitor, Mouse) consoles to be switched between a group of computers thus avoiding the need to attach a keyboard, monitor and mouse to each computer and saving space, cost and power. KVM switches don’t require any software to be loaded on the computers and consequently offer simple-to-use and robust computer management that continues to work even if the computers crash. The one major drawback of this type of technology is that the KVM consoles must have a direct cable connection to the KVM switch which limits their range to a few hundred metres.
