  • Patent number: 9853980
    Abstract: A method is provided for configuring access to a network, to authorize an access to the network for at least one invited terminal associated with an invited user. The method is implemented by a first network access management module associated with a host user. The method includes: receiving, from a terminal associated with the host user, an offer to share the access to the network intended for the invited user, the users being connected via a social network; obtaining, from a second network access management module associated with the invited user, information identifying the invited terminal; obtaining, from the network, configuration information allowing access to the network by the invited terminal, following a sending, to the network, of an access configuration request comprising the identification information; and sending, to the second management module, configuration information intended for the invited terminal allowing it access to the network.

  • Patent number: 9274846
    Abstract: A method and apparatus are provided for determining a chain of individual functions associated with a service. The functions are designed to be interconnected in order to supply the service to a client entity in a communications network. The method includes the following steps implemented by a determination device: receiving from an access node to the service a temporary chain of individual functions associated with the service requested by the client entity together with a context associated with the client entity; determining an action to be performed on the temporary chain of individual functions associated with the service as a function of the context associated with the client entity; implementing the determined action on the temporary chain in order to obtain a final chain of individual functions; and sending the final chain to the service access node. This method can be implemented for supplying the service to the client entity.

  • Patent number: 8627505
    Abstract: A technique of controlling access by a client entity to a service in a communications network. Processing modules are interconnected in the network in order to supply the service to the client entity. A processing module implements an individual function of a chain of individual functions associated with the service. The access method includes the following steps implemented by an access control device associated with an access node giving access to the service, the device being referred to as a main device: receiving a chain of processing modules from the access node; sending, to a secondary access control device associated with a processing module of the chain, a request to access the processing module under consideration, the request including an access token negotiated between the main device and the client entity; receiving a response to the access request from the secondary device; and notifying the access node of the response.
