BlackRidge TAC Gateway

The BlackRidge TAC Gateway is a network appliance that can be deployed inline (Layer 2) or out of band (Layer 3) that brings identity awareness to network security.  Decisions are made not only based on where you are coming from (IP Address) but also on who you are (username, service account, etc).  Depending on these factors the BlackRidge TAC Gateway can either forward the request (allow it through), redirect it (e.g. to a honeypot), or simply discard it.  If discarded no response is sent to the originating request, which effectively prevents attackers from knowing that the system even exists.  This is what BlackRidge calls cloaking and has been proven to work with single systems, large data centers, and even military units in the field.
