  • Publication number: 20210092116
    Abstract: A cloud-based communication framework. A first secure channel may be established for communication between an IT device and a cloud-computing platform. A request for a device user interface may then be received over the first secure channel. The request may be initiated by a user device via the cloud-computing platform. The device user interface may be retrieved and forwarded over a second secure channel to the cloud-computing platform for communication to the user device.

  • Publication number: 20200387617
    Abstract: A cloud-based communication framework. A client device may generate a file for an information technology (IT) device. The client device may request a password for the file. The password may be used to encrypt the file. A signature may be determined based on the encrypted file and the password. The signature and encrypted file may then be stored on a cloud-computing platform for downloading by the IT device, wherein the first signature is used by the IT device to validate authenticity of the encrypted file.
