  • Publication number: 20220150106
    Abstract: A device includes a processor and a memory. The processor effectuates operations including monitoring enterprise network traffic associated with one or more user device (UE). The processor further effectuates operations including comparing the enterprise network traffic to a UE profile associated with each of the one or more UE. The processor further effectuates operations including determining whether the comparison indicates that a predetermined threshold has been exceeded. The processor further effectuates operations including in response to the indication that the predetermined threshold has been exceeded, generating an alert, wherein exceeding the predetermined threshold is indicative of a denial of service attack on an enterprise network or an attempt to remove enterprise data via the one or more UE.

  • Publication number: 20210329454
    Abstract: Systems and methods detect a potential hacking attack by monitoring the number and timing of DELBA (Delete Block Acknowledgement) action frames. When the number and timing of the DELBA action frames correspond to an unauthorized access pattern, an unauthorized access is detected. The potential unauthorized access may be detected by an access point (AP) or by the AP and a backend system. When a potential unauthorized access is detected, the AP may remain in silent mode for a longer period of time and limit access to the network to only trusted devices. In addition, an alarm or other notification of the potential unauthorized access may be provided to a user or other designated contact.

  • Patent number: 10439860
    Abstract: Concepts and technologies are disclosed herein for an installation location noise floor evaluation device. The device can be configured to receive a radio frequency signal emitted by a radio frequency device that emits a radio frequency signal that can enter into an installation location and detect a radio frequency noise floor associated with the installation location based on the radio frequency signal. The installation location noise floor evaluation device can compare the radio frequency noise floor to a noise floor threshold associated with an operating frequency of a device, generating an indication that indicates an outcome of the comparing, and output the indicator.

  • Patent number: 10242559
    Abstract: Concepts and technologies are disclosed herein for limiting service availability when a sensor device is non-operational due to a noise floor change. According to one aspect of the concepts and technologies disclosed herein, a connected home system includes a controller device configured to monitor a plurality of sensor devices deployed within a premises, and a sensor device of the plurality of sensor devices. The sensor device can monitor radio frequency (“RF”) noise in a radio environment associated with the premises. The radio environment is associated with an RF noise floor. The sensor device can determine whether the radio frequency noise exceeds a noise threshold. In response to determining that the RF noise exceeds the noise threshold, the sensor device can cause the controller device to exclude the sensor device from being monitored by the controller device until the RF noise returns to below the noise threshold.

  • Patent number: 10140847
    Abstract: Concepts and technologies are disclosed herein for alarm initiation when a sensor is intentionally jammed. According to one aspect disclosed herein, a connected home system can include a controller device and a sensor device. The sensor device can include a processor and memory. The memory can store sensor instructions that, when executed by the processor, cause the sensor device to perform sensor operations. In particular, the sensor device can detect a jamming signal originating, for example, from a jamming device that is intentionally attempting to jam operations of the sensor device. The sensor device can determine whether the jamming signal is above a jamming alarm threshold. If the sensor device determines that the jamming signal is above the jamming alarm threshold, the sensor device can generate a jamming alarm event that is directed to the controller device. The sensor device can send the jamming alarm event to the controller device.
