Air gapping is a network security measure commonly used in military/governmental, financial and industrial control systems networks that is applied to one or more computers in order to ensure that a given network is physically isolated – usually in order to prevent exposure of the subject network to the Internet or the local area network.
In March 2020 researchers discovered a cyber-espionage toolkit known as Ramsay, specifically designed to steal documents and operate within air-gapped networks.
In a presentation at VB2020 localhost, ESET researcher Ignacio Sanmillan spoke about Ramsay's main capabilities, the overlaps found with DarkHotel's Retro and some OPSEC failures the researchers spotted during their research.
