Fix Recommendation

Obtain tamper evident seals and apply them to the KVM switch case joints such that if the case is opened the seal will be broken. Also place them across the junction between the IS cables and the KVM switch so that if a cable is moved or removed the seal will be broken. NSA IAD Protective Technologies has tamper evident products available for use, including seals for RJ45, D-sub, and USB ports. These can be obtained by contacting them either on NIPRNet at ptproducts@radium.ncsc.mil or on SIPRNet at ptproducts@nsa.smil.mil. When ordering, please specify that this is for use on a DoD Information System and the government use version is needed.
