  • Patent number: 10389631
    Abstract: An IP address of a received data packet is determined. An IP address map that stores set membership values indicative of whether an IP address is a member of a set of IP addresses, for every possible IP address within an IP address space of the IP address, is accessed to determine set membership for the IP address of the data packet. A further action to be performed on the packet is determined based on the set membership that is determined for the IP address of the data packet. Embodiments could be applied to source IP address filtering, destination IP address filtering, or both. Blacklist and whitelist embodiments, and associated further actions that could be applied to packets in such embodiments, are contemplated.

  • Patent number: 10298505
    Abstract: A data congestion control can operate in a hierarchical sensor network. A first data rate of data received from a set of devices is determined to compare unfavorably to a congestion threshold. A most favorable negotiation score of a set of negotiation scores corresponding to the set of devices is determined. A proposed reduced transmission rate that is less than a current transmission rate of the device and that compares favorably a boundary conditions of the device is determined. A transmission rate reduction request is generated for transmission to the one of the set of devices that indicates the proposed reduced transmission rate. An updated data rate of the data received from the set of devices is determined, and a difference between the updated data rate and the first aggregated data rate corresponds to a reduction of rate of transmission by the device.
