  • Patent number: 11990943
    Abstract: Aspects of the subject disclosure may include, for example, monitoring a security status of a wireless communication session comprising a back-haul link supporting a classical communication channel between a wireless access point and a wireless mobility core network. The classical communication channel is adapted to transport underlying data of the wireless communication session and, responsive to determining a change in the security status, associating with the wireless communication session a quantum communication channel adapted to transport information via qubits. Information is exchanged between the wireless access point and the mobility core network via the qubits of the quantum communication channel, wherein the exchanging of the information via the qubits enhances a security level of the wireless communication session in view of a perceived threat. Other embodiments are disclosed.

  • Patent number: 11941133
    Abstract: One aspect provides an FPGA chip mounted on a printed circuit board (PCB). The FPGA chip can include a joint test action group (JTAG) interface comprising a number of input/output pins and an enablement pin, and a control logic block coupled to the enablement pin of the JTAG interface. The control logic block can receive a control signal from an off-chip control unit and control a logical value of the enablement pin based on the received control signal, thereby facilitating the off-chip control unit to lock or unlock the JTAG interface. The FPGA chip can further include a detection logic block to detect an unauthorized access to the FPGA chip. An input to the detection logic is coupled to the enablement pin, and a conductive trace coupling the input of the detection logic block and the enablement pin is situated on an inner layer of the PCB.

  • Patent number: 11934544
    Abstract: Target data may be associated with a location requirement established by a data owner. A data access module may be used to attempt access to the target data. Location requirement and provenance metadata associated with the target data are obtained. The provenance metadata must be validated, and evidence only approved data access locations identified in the location requirement. A current location of a computing device attempting access to the target data must also meet the location requirement. The computing device is allowed to access the target data only in response to the current location and each location identified in the provenance metadata meeting the location requirement. The provenance metadata is updated to include a new record including the current data access location.

  • Patent number: 11916963
    Abstract: In an example, systems and methods enable automatic implementation of intent-based security policies in a network system, such as a software-defined wide area network system, in which network segment prefixes for network segments at one or more sites are dynamically learned. A service orchestrator controller translates an intent-based security policy input by a user to a security policy for a first site. The security policy for the first site specifies a segment-specific queryable resource associated with a second site. To implement the security policy, a device associated with the first site queries the segment-specific queryable resource associated with the second site, and updates one or more forwarding tables of the device with the network segment prefixes associated with one or more network segments at the second site received in response to the query. The first site forwards network traffic to the second site based on the updated forwarding tables.

  • Patent number: 11888817
    Abstract: A security system obtains data logs from a set of security applications that each output data of different data types and in different formats. A filtering module obtains the data from the security applications as an input message stream and processes the into message stream into an output message stream with messages in a standardized format for processing by a security engine. The filtering module includes a set of filters each tailored to process data from a different data source. The filtering module detects the data source from analysis of the data and applies the corresponding filter to generate the output message stream. The security engine then detects patterns in the output data stream and provides alerts to an administrative interface when it detects a pattern indicative of malicious activity.

  • Patent number: 11849328
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method, in a communication framework in which each of a plurality of users has one or more devices associated therewith, and in which the users use at least some of their devices to communicate via a backend system. A first user has a first set of first one or more associated trusted devices, and a second user has a second set of second one or more trusted devices associated therewith. The first user forms a first trust relationship between a first device in the first set and a second device in the second set. Based on (i) the first trust relationship, and (ii) the second set associated with the second user, the first user forms a second trust relationship between each device in the first set and each device in the second set. A least one device in the first set communicates with one or more devices in the second set based on the second trust relationship.

  • Patent number: 11848933
    Abstract: Systems and methods that provide access to users of a network system via a unique identity key that controls access and permission rights of outside entities as controlled by the entity itself. The system assigns unique identity to a unique entity. The key is responsible for facilitating preferred access types and information accessed by outside entities, and acts as a signal for action, interaction and experience within the System as well as third party platforms. Each interaction within the system includes a requesting entity's proxy (‘REP’) sending an information access request (‘IAR’) to the deciding entity's proxy (‘DEP’) via a network. This IAR is routed to the correct DEP via the unique identifier. The DEP applies access preferences to allow or deny the IAR, in part or completely. If allowed or partially allowed, the DEP returns information to the REP.

  • Patent number: 11849319
    Abstract: A method may be provided at a wireless terminal to support communications with a network node of a wireless communication network. An IKE SA may be initiated to establish a NAS connection between the wireless terminal and the network node through a non-3GPP access network and a non-3GPP interworking function network node. After initiating the IKE SA, an IKE authorization request may be transmitted through the non-3GPP access network to the N3IWF network node, with the IKE authorization request including an identifier of the wireless terminal. An access network key may be derived for the NAS connection through the non-3GPP access network at the wireless terminal, with the access network key being derived based on a NAS count for the wireless terminal and an anchor key. An IKE authorization response corresponding to the IKE authorization request may be received.
