Gabriel Security Platform White Paper

The following three tables summarize the application integration approaches for Gabriel Connection Technology™ that have been previously discussed.  Table 1 shows the implementation level of Gabriel Instant Secure Connect Software available by operating system.  Gabriel Instant Secure Connect Software can be run at either the network or application layer on all operating systems except for locked down Android and iOS mobile devices. OEMs manufacturing devices with Android Operating System can deploy Gabriel Connection Technology™ at the network layer.  In addition to supporting Linux on Intel platforms, Gabriel Instant Secure Connect Software also supports embedded Linux on devices with ARM processor.

Table 1 – The Implementation Layer of Gabriel Connection Technology™ Available for Each Operating System

TUN (Network Level) VTUN (Application Level)
iOS X
Android X
Windows X X
Linux Intel X X
Mac OSX X X
Android Custom (rooted) X X
Linux ARM (embedded) X X

 

Table 2 illustrates the Gabriel Connection Technology™ implementation layer required to support each type of integration into your application.  All integration approaches work on all operating systems, except that the Gabriel Connect Secure DNS API approach does not work on locked down mobile devices.  In this instance, Gabriel Connection Technology™ must run at the VTUN (application) layer.

 

Table 2 – Implementation Layers Supported for Each Integration Method

TUN VTUN
GSGS X X
App API X X
Secure DNS API X

 

Table 3 illustrates the full interoperability of the Gabriel Instant Secure Connect software integration approaches.  The client and server side of your application can use a different integration approach with Gabriel Instant Secure Connect software and interoperate with each other.  An example is an application that securely accesses a surveillance camera could be secured via Gabriel Connect API, to avoid needing to load custom software on the camera, the responder (server) side, could be integrated using GSGS.  Another example would be a camera application on a laptop using the Gabriel Connect Secure DNS API to access a camera secured by GSGS.  Or if Gabriel Connection Technology™ is integrated directly onto the camera, the responder side could be secured via the Gabriel Connect Secure DNS API, and the client application could be secured via GSGS, Gabriel Connect API, or the Gabriel Secure Connect DNS API.   This inoperability provides you complete control to use the most appropriate method to integrate Gabriel Instant Secure Connect software for each device participating in the Gabriel Security Platform.
