  • Patent number: 9367692
    Abstract: A method and system for validating components during a booting process of a computing device are described herein. The method can include the steps of detecting a power up signal and in response to detecting the power up signal, progressively determining whether software components of the computing device are valid. If the software components are determined to be valid, the computing device may be permitted to move to an operational state. If, however, at least some of the software components are determined to be not valid, the computing device may be prevented from moving to the operational state. In one arrangement, if the computing device is prevented from moving to the operational state, corrective action can be taken in an effort to permit the computing device to move to the operational state.

  • Patent number: 9350818
    Abstract: A method and system for data usage accounting are described herein. On a computing device that includes enterprise applications and personal applications, a datagram send request for an enterprise application can be received. The datagram send request may involve unreliable transport communication with a final destination and may be conducted in a native fashion with respect to the enterprise application. Based on the datagram send request, addressing information of a relay destination that is different from the final destination can be received. In addition, outbound datagrams of the unreliable transport communication can be corresponded with the received addressing information of the relay destination. The outbound datagrams of the unreliable transport communication may also be supplemented with the addressing information of the final destination.

  • Patent number: 9232013
    Abstract: A method and system for enabling data usage accounting are described herein. As an example, the method can be practiced on a computing device that has secure applications and unsecure applications installed thereon. Initially, a request for a data session can be received through a secure application. The request for the data session can be intercepted, and the request for the data session can be modified to cause the request to be re-directed back to the secure application. In addition, a connection can be initiated to enable retrieval of data in response to the request and to enable an accounting of the data session. In one arrangement, this process of modifying the request for a data session may be restricted to secure applications such that data usage of the secure applications is tabulated separately from data usage associated with the unsecure applications.

  • Patent number: 9232012
    Abstract: A method and system for data usage accounting are described herein. As an example, the method can be practiced in a setting that includes both secure applications and unsecure applications. Via one of the secure applications, a request to access data can be received in which the request is intended for a content provider via a system service. The request that is intended for the content provider via the system service can be intercepted and modified, which can cause the system service to direct the request back to the secure application instead of the content provider. In addition, a connection can be established with the content provider for the request through the secure application to enable data usage accounting of data that is returned by the content provider.

  • Patent number: 9165139
    Abstract: A method for generating a secure application is described herein. The method can include the steps of obtaining a target application and decomposing the target application into original files that contain predictable instructions. One or more predictable instructions in the original files may be identified. In addition, the target application may be modified to create the secure application by binding one or more intercepts to the target application. These intercepts can enable the modification of the predictable instructions in accordance with one or more policies such that the behavior of the secure application is different from the original behavior of the target application. Modification of the target application may be conducted without access to the source code of the target application.
