  • Publication number: 20220303148
    Abstract: Concepts and technologies disclosed herein are directed to secure virtual meetings. According to one aspect, a user system can execute a secure virtual meeting module to identify a user that is to participate in a virtual meeting. The secure virtual meeting module can identify an authorized meeting environment in which the user is authorized to participate in the virtual meeting. The secure virtual meeting module can determine if the user is present in the authorized meeting environment, if an unauthorized person is present in the authorized meeting environment, and if a device is operating in a listening mode. In response to determining that the user is present in the authorized meeting environment, the unauthorized person is not present in the authorized meeting environment, and the device is not operating in the listening mode, the secure virtual meeting module can instruct a virtual meeting application to begin the virtual meeting.

  • Publication number: 20220300661
    Abstract: Aspects of the subject disclosure may include, for example, identifying, during a CPU's execution of a first program, a branching instruction of the first program that redirects execution to a second program. Responsive to the identifying of the branching instruction, a return address of a next instruction of the first program is encrypted. The encrypted return address is transferred to the second program without the CPU retaining a record of the return address. The encrypted return address is received from the second program responsive to its completion of execution. The received encrypted return address is decrypted to obtain the return address enabling a resumption of execution of the first program from the next instruction. Other embodiments are disclosed.
