Definition - What does TEMPEST Shielding mean?
Techopedia explains TEMPEST Shielding
TEMPEST shielding is therefore both the act and the material itself used to stop these electromagnetic emanations from reaching devices that may be used to decipher them. The process follows the "red/black" separation principle in which the "red" equipment, such as computer terminals which carry confidential data, must be isolated from the "black" equipment, such as radios and modems, which may capture signals through various filters and shields: the TEMPEST shielding. It is also often placed in whole rooms or even buildings to ensure that no EMR leaks out, possibly compromising security by inadvertently leaking data.
