8-Port Secure KM Switch with KB/Mouse USB emulation
SKMN-8S: Ultra-Secure KM Switching
The SKMN-8S is an 8-port Secure USB KM switch, allowing users to control keyboard-mouse functions of connected systems using a single USB keyboard-mouse combo.The SKMN-8S allows users to control KM (Keyboard and Mouse) operation on up to four computers. It features mechanical, electrical and optical signal isolation to prevent hacking and data leakage in environments where security is paramount.
With the SKMN-8S, all data relays are controlled by inverted signals, shielding connections from outside intrusion by forcing them each to work one at a time. Each port uses its own isolated data channel and each unit features non-reprogrammable ROM to better protect the switch's functions. Better yet, the SKMN-8S offers the highest security when accessing classified and public networks over the internet through these isolated connections. By isolating connections between networks, the SKMN-8S ensures no data is leaked between secure ports and the outside world.
The SKMN-8S has clearly marked front-panel buttons for controlling the device, so securely switching between sources is always simple. For high-grade secure switching made easy, look no further than the SKMN-8S.

Answer: Thank you for your inquiry,
NIAP-Certified "Secure" KM Switches (like the SmartAVI SKMN-8S) do not buffer any key presses as a security feature. This is great for preventing any eavesdropping or key logging attempts, but also means that they are by nature unable to support Hot-Key Switching. For more information on secure switching devices, please refer to this guide.
For a standard 8-Port Keyboard-Mouse switch with Hot-Key Switching functionality, you may be interested in the Adder CCS-PRO8-US or the SmartAVI SKM-08S KM switches.
