Professionals test the Sphinx 2.0 security concept

Security experts in Vienna test the goalkeeper security concept implemented with the video surveillance software Sphinx 2.0. The professional testers tried to con the cameras but couldn’t walk into the monitored security area without raising alerts and leaving marks on the computer system.

The goalkeeper security system uses two cameras, one to observe the security area and another one to monitor the computer system itself. When an intruder tries to approach the computer, all keys in memory for signing alerts will be deleted.

The complete description of the goalkeeper security system will be included in the documentation of the next Sphinx release.
