(FR) RESEAU PRIVE VIRTUEL CHIFFRE SERVANT A ACCEDER A DES DETECTEURS A DISTANCE
Abstract
(EN)
One aspect of the present invention is directed to a system and method of providing secure access to remote sensor data via an encrypted virtual private network (316). The system (100) utilizes a scaleable architecture and includes a centralized sensor server (110) connected to a plurality of centers (130, 132, 134) having sensors (370, 371, 372) via an encrypted virtual private network. The centralized server also connects to a plurality of remote sensor monitors (140, 142, 144) via a virtual private network. The virtual private network may be implemented over a packet switched network (120) such as the Internet, while the remote sensor monitor utilizes a web browser (520, 522, 524). The system shares images (512) from a particular sensor to multiple users via the centralized server to conserve bandwidth and reduce system costs. The system utilizes various authentication and security features to protect the sensor data.

Un aspect de l'invention concerne un système et un procédé permettant d'accéder en toute sécurité à des détecteurs à distance par l'intermédiaire d'un réseau (316) privé virtuel chiffré. Ce système (100) met en application une architecture échelonnable et comprend un serveur centralisé (110) de détecteurs reliés à une pluralité de centres (130, 132, 134) possédant des détecteurs (370, 371, 372) par l'intermédiaire d'un réseau privé virtuel chiffré. Ce serveur centralisé est également relié à une pluralité de moniteurs (140, 142, 144) de détecteurs à distance par l'intermédiaire d'un réseau privé virtuel. Ce dernier peut être mis en application sur un réseau à commutation par paquets (120) tel qu'Internet, tandis que le moniteur de détecteur à distance utilise un chercheur Web (520, 522, 524). Ce système partage des images (512) provenant d'un détecteur spécifique entre des usagers multiples par l'intermédiaire du serveur centralisé afin de conserver la largeur de bande et de limiter les coûts du système. Celui-ci met en oeuvre différentes caractéristiques de sécurité et d'authentification, de manière à protéger les données des détecteurs.
