  • Publication number: 20220200894
    Abstract: Systems and methods include receiving a request for a path in a network including a plurality of network elements interconnected to one another via links, wherein the request includes values for a plurality of criteria, wherein the plurality of criteria include one or more of trust, privacy, and secrecy; utilizing a multi-criteria path selection process to determine the path through the plurality of network elements over the links based on the plurality of criteria and the associated values; and providing a display of the determined path in a network map. The trust quantifies trustworthiness of each link in the network and the values of trust are any of a rating and a selection for inclusion or exclusion, the privacy quantifies a number of the links the network path is routed over for network obfuscation, and the secrecy quantifies a level of encryption utilized on the links.

  • Publication number: 20210173625
    Abstract: Systems for managing static assets of web applications. A method embodiment includes identifying a web application that comprises a code base and a set of static assets, then separating the code base of the web application from the set of static assets that are referenced by the web application. The code base is deployed as application services whereas the static assets are deployed as static asset containers. Specifically, the set of static assets referenced by the application services are deployed in containers that are instantiated separately from where the application services are instantiated. Requests to access the application services and requests to access the static assets are tracked by taking performance measurements of the systems that process the accesses. Dynamic scaling of static asset containers is done independently from dynamic scaling of the application services. The dynamic scaling is based on combinations of measured usage and/or any system performance characteristics.
