The term "TEMPEST" is obsolete. It has been replaced, for those of you who care, by EMSEC, or "Emissions Security." If you'd like some additional factual information about TEMPEST/EMSEC, I heartily recommend James Atkinson's TEMPEST primer at http://www.tscm.com/TSCM101tempest.html He has compiled a wealth of useful info on TEMPEST and the standards associated with it. I just wish he'd lose the oscilloscope tracing background, because it gives me a headache trying to read over it. ;-) Cheers, RGF - ISN is currently hosted by Attrition.org To unsubscribe email majordomoat_private with 'unsubscribe isn' in the BODY of the mail.
