For proper SeaCat-equipped products functionality, additional services are needed:

Discover Service

Discover Service is a DNS-based authority that pairs Applications with SeaCat Gateways.

Discover Service provides:

  • Application Backend resource protection by traffic redirection in a cyber-attack (e.g. DDoS);
  • Traffic load distribution across multiple SeaCat Gateways;
  • Traffic load optimization due to priority and weight settings;
  • Traffic load redirection to other SeaCat Gateways in the case of an overload or a traffic peak;
  • Whole infrastructure evolving without any need for re-deployment of the Application due to no hardcoded URLs.

SeaCat Gateway configuration use records:


_seacat._tcp.exampleand    IN     SRV     10       0     443     gateway_001
_seacat._tcp.exampleand    IN     SRV     10     100     443     gateway_002
gateway_001                IN     A
gateway_002                IN     AAAA    2001:0db8:85a3:0000:0000:8a2e:0370:7334

Discover Service uses proprietary library to avoid attack against GLibC.

Software and Firmware Update Service

Software and Firmware Update Service is responsible for keeping all connected Applications and devices up-to-date. It propagates fresh versions of the software and firmware to all connected components. This is especially useful for IoT Applications.
