Definition Edit

An air gap is

the lack of an electronic connection between the system and the rest of the world. A true air gap also requires that the system not have RF links (or at least not ones powerful enough to be picked up beyond the protected perimeter), and that no media (say, thumb drives) cross the perimeter (such as by being removed from a computer).[1]

Overview Edit

An air-gap system is a system that is offline.
