Patents by Inventor David Maw

David Maw has filed for patents to protect the following inventions. This listing includes patent applications that are pending as well as patents that have already been granted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

  • Patent number: 10248442
    Abstract: Virtual machines in a network may be isolated by encrypting transmissions between the virtual machines with keys possessed only by an intended recipient. Within a network, the virtual machines may be logically organized into a number of community-of-interest (COI) groups. Each COI may use an encryption key to secure communications within the COI, such that only other virtual machines in the COI may decrypt the message. Virtual machines may be automatically provisioned with configuration information, such as the encryption keys, when the virtual machine is started. The provisioning information may be created based on a template stored on a configuration server.
    Type: Grant

  • Patent number: 9819658
    Abstract: Virtual machines in a network may be isolated by encrypting transmissions between the virtual machines with keys possessed only by an intended recipient. Within a network, the virtual machines may be logically organized into a number of community-of-interest (COI) groups. Each COI may use an encryption key to secure communications within the COI, such that only other virtual machines in the COI may decrypt the message. Virtual machines may further be isolated through a virtual gateway assigned to handle all communications between a virtual machine and a device outside of the virtual machine's COI. The virtual gateway may be a separate virtual machine for handling decrypting and encrypting messages for transmission between virtual machines and other devices.

  • Patent number: 9215227
    Abstract: Systems and methods enable a method including: providing a first system; generating data to be sent over a network link; determining a transport protocol that will be used to transmit data over the network communication link; negotiating connection services to be performed on data that will transmitted over the network communication link; sending a request to open a network communication link; sending a request to the connectivity services of the second system for credentials of the second system; receiving the credentials from the connectivity services module of the second system; verifying that the credentials match an authenticated computer system; opening a network connection between the first system and the second system when the second system's credentials have been verified by the connectivity services module of the first system; and transmitting the data to the second system according to the determining network protocol and negotiated connection services.

    Abstract: Virtual machines in a network may be isolated by encrypting transmissions between the virtual machines with keys possessed only by an intended recipient. Within a network, the virtual machines may be logically organized into a number of community-of-interest (COI) groups. Each COI may use an encryption key to secure communications within the COI, such that only other virtual machines in the COI may decrypt the message. Security may be further enhanced by establishing a session key for use during communications between a first and a second virtual machine. The session key may be encrypted with the COI key.
