"Air-gapped" computers or networks date to at least 2000 in Usenet, with a
possible 1998 on a webpage and a possible 1996 book. "Air gap" is at least
1999 in Usenet.
Phil Stopford, "Re: Whacked out LW experiments", 2000-Jan-12,
I'll wait and stick with trusted NT 4 for a while yet.....since we are
air-gapped, then security from outside attack is less of an issue and
placing extra demands on the systems from the bloated Win2K distribution
would seem to be unjustified.
Phil Stopford, "Re: Whacked out LW experiments", 2000-Jan-13,
Besides, the point stands that Win 2K had a poor record of application
compatability earlier in its life, provides no real benefits for us here
since security is not a major problem on an air-gapped network with no
external access at all (just to emphasise the point) and could really do
with testing by the general public at large.
A possible 1998:
Access Control and System Audit Based on "Patient-Doctor Relation and
Clinical Situation" Model, Dr. Yasuyuki Hirose, uploaded 1998.7.24:
The HIS has some subsystem but the network of the HIS is air-gapped from
the campus network or from Internet.
A possible 1996:
Cyberwar: Security, Strategy, and Conflict in the Information Age, ALAN D
AUTOR CAMPEN, DOUGLAS H AUTOR DEARTH, R. THOMAS AUTOR GOODDEN, Afcea
International Press, 1996:
To start with the obvious, a computer system that receives no input
whatsoever from the outside world ("air-gapped") cannot be broken into (and
no, one cannot spray a virus into the air in the hopes that it acquires it).
Nigel Charlton, "Re: How do I transfer data to UNIX or NT", 1999-Dec-09,
Unfortunately due to security reasons I am unable to network the
machines - an air gap has to remain!
