  • Patent number: 11343355
    Abstract: An application mapping procedure obtains and aggregates application mapping information from a plurality of machines in a distributed system. A first layer of application mapping information is generated, identifying application entry points, each comprising a machine and a process executed by the identified machine. An application map is initialized with the first layer of application mapping information. A plurality of iterations of a predefined map gathering operation are performed, each iteration adding a layer of application mapping information to the application map, thereby producing an application map of the distributed processing of one or more respective applications. Each iteration sends queries, via one or more linear communication orbits, to machines in the distributed system, and obtains from the machines information identifying entities that have participated in predefined communications with entities identified in a most recently generated or added layer of application mapping information.

  • Patent number: 11277489
    Abstract: A method of updating software, performed by respective machines in a linear communication orbit includes, at a local server executed by a respective machine, receiving, via the linear communication orbit, update metadata. At an update module executed by the respective machine, an update module evaluates software version information using the update metadata to determine a set of one or more updates to be applied to one or more software programs. A patch module sends, via the linear communication orbit, requests for one or more software update files corresponding to the set of one or more updates, and receives the one or more software update files corresponding to the set of one or more updates. The update module then updates the one or more of the software programs by applying the received one or more software update files to the one or more of the software programs.

  • Patent number: 10841365
    Abstract: This application is directed to a mapping method performed at a computational machine in a linear communication orbit. The computational machine receives an application definition the linear communication orbit. The application definition specifies criteria for establishing whether the computational machine executes a specified application, a component of the specified application, or communicate with another node executing the specified application or a component of the specified application. While a plurality of events are occurring locally at the computational machine, the computational machine identifies one or more operations meeting the application definition in real-time. The identified one or more operations meeting the application definition, and associated metadata are stored in a local mapping database of the computational machine and returned to the server system through the linear communication orbit in response to a map request received through the linear communication orbit.

  • Patent number: 5303303
    Abstract: Data is encrypted for transmission over non-secure communication by providing data with a header and a trailer portion containing the full information as to the sender and recipient of the data so as to form a data packet, incrypting the data packet, and providing a further header and trailer portion to form a further data packet. The further header and trailer only contain information identifying the entry and exit nodes at which the further data packet enters and leaves the non-secure network. On arrival at the exit node the further data packet can be decrypted to reconstruct the original packet which is then conveyed to its destination via a local secure network. Padding non-secure network with dummy messages makes it impossible to identify the presence of genuine traffic between particular nodes of the non-secure network. Thus secure data may be sent via commercial non-secure packet switching networks without indicating its presence.
