  • Patent number: 10362032
    Abstract: Devices, such as hardware security modules, are provided as a service. A customer of a computing resource provider is able to request the addition of a device to a network of the customer hosted by the computing resource provider. The computing resource provider reconfigures a set of computing resources so that the devices of the customer are able to communicate with the device as if the device was in the customer's own network.

  • Patent number: 10223538
    Abstract: Organizations maintain and generate large amounts of sensitive information using computer hardware resources and services of a service provider. Furthermore, there is a need to be able to delete large amounts of data securely and quickly by encrypting the data with a key and destroying the key. To ensure that information stored remotely is secure and capable of secure deletion, cryptographic keys used by the organization should be prevented from being persistently stored during serialization operations. A variety of methods may be used to protect access to keying material and prevent the keying material from being stored persistently.

  • Publication number: 20180375837
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus for interfaces to manage direct network peerings. A system may include a data center, endpoint routers and a connectivity coordinator. The coordinator implements a programmatic interface defining connectivity operations. The coordinator receives a request for dedicated connectivity to data center resources, formatted according to the interface. The coordinator selects a target endpoint router at which to establish a physical link to implement the dedicated connectivity, and transmits a response identifying the target endpoint router and including configuration instructions for setting up a physical link for the dedicated connectivity.

  • Publication number: 20180351813
    Abstract: Techniques are described for providing virtual networking functionality for managed computer networks. In some situations, a user may configure or otherwise specify a logical network topology for a managed computer network with multiple computing nodes that includes one or more virtual networking devices each associated with a specified group of the multiple computing nodes. Corresponding networking functionality may be provided for communications between the multiple computing nodes by emulating functionality that would be provided by the networking devices if they were physically present and configured to support the specified network topology. In some situations, the managed computer network is a virtual computer network overlaid on a substrate network, and the networking device functionality emulating includes receiving routing communications directed to the networking devices and using included routing information to update the specified network topology for the managed computer network.

  • Publication number: 20180324085
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus for interfaces to manage inter-regional connectivity for direct network peerings. A system may include a connectivity coordinator, a first resource collection in a first geographical zone and a second resource collection in a second geographical zone. The coordinator implements a programmatic interface defining connectivity operations. The coordinator receives a request via the interface to establish a logically isolated network path to the second resource collection on behalf of a client that has a dedicated physical link set up to connect to the first resource collection. In response to the request, the coordinator performs one or more configuration operations to enable traffic to flow from the client's network to the second resource collection over a logically isolated network path using the dedicated physical link.

  • Patent number: 9965768
    Abstract: An advertisement service enables advertisers to bid on or select a particular geographic region for public display of an advertisement by a mobile ad platform when the mobile ad platform enters the particular geographic region. For instance, the mobile ad platform provides location information to the advertisement service. Based on the location, the advertisement service provides ad information to the mobile ad platform for display of an advertisement corresponding to the advertiser that has purchased rights to display advertisements on the mobile ad platform in the current geographic region. The publicly displayed advertisement content may change dynamically as the location of the mobile ad platform changes. In some implementations, the advertisement may offer an incentive, such as a coupon, to consumers that see the advertisement. The incentive may be redeemable at the advertiser's business such as by using a mobile device to capture, obtain or redeem the incentive.

  • Publication number: 20170295060
    Abstract: Techniques are described for managing communications between multiple computing nodes, such as for computing nodes that are part of managed virtual computer networks provided on behalf of users or other entities. In some situations, one or more of the computing nodes of a managed virtual computer network is configured to perform actions to extend capabilities of the managed virtual computer network to other computing nodes that are not part of the managed virtual computer network, such as by forwarding communications between computing nodes of the managed virtual computer network and the other external computing nodes so as to enable the other external computing nodes to participate in the managed virtual computer network. In some situations, the computing nodes may include virtual machine nodes hosted on one or more physical computing machines or systems, such as by or on behalf of one or more users.
