  • Publication number: 20200404007
    Abstract: Systems and methods for detecting injection exploits in a networked computing environment are disclosed. In one embodiment, a method for detection includes monitoring web applications that are executing and detecting when an execution function is received over a network and invoked, where an execution function is a function that accepts external free-form data values, detecting malicious code by generating a model of legitimate behavior subsequent to invocation of the execution function, comparing actual behavior to the model of legitimate behavior, and generating an alert when the actual behavior deviates from the model of legitimate behavior and validating whether the deviation of the actual behavior is due to one or more functions that accept external input.

  • Publication number: 20190044888
    Abstract: In some embodiments, a non-transitory processor-readable medium stores code representing instructions to be executed by a processor. The code causes the processor to receive, at an edge device, a first data unit having a characteristic. The code causes the processor to identify, at a first time, an identifier of a service module associated with the characteristic in response to each entry from a set of entries within a flow table not being associated with the characteristic. The code causes the processor to define an entry in the flow table associated with the characteristic and the identifier of the service module. The code causes the processor to send the first data unit to the service module. The code causes the processor to receive, at the edge device, a second data unit having the characteristic, and send the second data unit to the service module based on the entry.

  • Patent number: 10097481
    Abstract: In some embodiments, a non-transitory processor-readable medium stores code representing instructions to be executed by a processor. The code causes the processor to receive, from a source peripheral processing device, a portion of a data packet having a destination address associated with a destination peripheral processing device. The code causes the processor to identify, based on the destination address, a service to be performed on the portion of the data packet. The code causes the processor to select, based on the service, an identifier of a service module associated with the service. The code further causes the processor to send the portion of the data packet to the service module via a distributed switch fabric such that the service module performs the service on the portion of the data packet and sends the portion of the data packet to the destination peripheral processing device via the distributed switch fabric.
