  • Patent number: 7827614
    Abstract: The present invention provides a system and method for automatically hiding sensitive information, obtainable from a process table, from other processes that should not access the sensitive information. The system and method include a sensitive command attribute table that is used by a system administrator to designate the commands and command attributes that will typically be associated with sensitive information. The sensitive command attribute table is used when a command is entered that requests information from the process table to be displayed or output. In response, a search of the process table entries is made to determine if a command and/or its attribute in the process table matches an entry in the sensitive command attribute table. If so, the command, its attributes, and/or its attribute values are blanked from the output of the process table information.

  • Patent number: 7752443
    Abstract: A user device initiates a network access authentication operation via a network access device with a network access authentication server, e.g., a Remote Authentication Dial-In User Service (RADIUS) server, which also generates an X.509 proxy certificate and includes the proxy certificate with the information, such as a set of network access parameters, that is returned to the user device in response to a successful completion of the network access authentication operation. The user device extracts and stores the proxy certificate. The network access parameters are used by the user device to communicate via the network access device on a network, which supports a grid. When the user device accesses a resource in the grid, the proxy certificate is already available, thereby obviating the need to generate a new proxy certificate and allowing a user of the user device to experience an integrated single-sign-on for network access and grid access.

  • Patent number: 7577623
    Abstract: A computer implemented method, data processing system, and computer program product for monitoring system events and providing real-time response to security threats. System data is collected by monitors in the computing system. The expert system of the present invention compares the data against information in a knowledge base to identify a security threat to a system resource in a form of a system event and an action for mitigating effects of the system event. A determination is made as to whether a threat risk value of the system event is greater than an action risk value of the action for mitigating the system event. If the threat risk value is greater, a determination is made as to whether a trust value set by a user is greater than the action risk value. If the trust value is greater, the expert system executes the action against the security threat.

  • Publication number: 20090063801
    Abstract: Exemplary methods, systems, and products are described that operate generally by moving subroutine return address protection to the processor itself, in effect proving atomic locks for subroutine return addresses stored in a stack, subject to application control. More particularly, exemplary methods, systems, and products are described that write protect subroutine return addresses by calling a subroutine, including storing in a stack memory address a subroutine return address and locking, by a computer processor, the stack memory address against write access. Calling a subroutine may include receiving in the computer processor an instruction to lock the stack memory address. Locking the stack memory address may be carried out by storing the stack memory address in a protected memory lockword. A protected memory lockword may be implemented as a portion of a protected content addressable memory.

  • Patent number: 7159242
    Abstract: A method and system for enabling secure IPsec tunnels within NAT without compromising security. A local network is configured with a gateway machine connected to the Internet and having an IPsec ID for interfacing with the Internet and a local IP/interface address for interfacing with the local network. Client machines are connected to the gateway machine and communicate with the Internet via the gateway and network address translation (NAT) techniques. Each client machine is configured with a local IP/interface address. The client machines are also provided with an alias of the IPsec ID for the gateway machine. When an IPsec request is received by the gateway machine to establish a tunnel (secure communication) with one of the clients, the gateway machine forwards the packet to the particular client using NAT. The client machine receives the request and since it has an alias of the gateway's IPsec ID, the client machine will confirm that it has one of the IPsec IDs in the packet.

  • Patent number: 7003662
    Abstract: A system and method for dynamically determining a CRL location and protocol. CRL location names and protocols are retrieved from a digital certificate data structure which includes a network servers that contain the CRL file. A determination is made as to whether any of the servers reside in the current domain, in which case the server is used because the data is more secure. If no locations are within the current domain, Internet servers outside the current domain are analyzed. Security parameters may be established that restrict which Internet servers can be used to retrieve the data. The security parameters may also include which access methods may be used to retrieve data since some access methods provide greater security than other access methods. A security parameter may also be based upon both the access method and the name, or address, of the Internet server.
