  • Publication number: 20230179575
    Abstract: A router node comprises a link discovery module, a security module, a secure access module and storage. The link discovery module discovers a link to an adjacent router node and receives its first loopback address. The link discovery module creates a first tunnel between the security module in the router node and the first loopback address. The security module receives a second loopback address for the second router node, and creates a second tunnel. The security module repeats the discovering, receiving and creating steps for each router node adjacent to the first router node. The storage separately stores a link discovery routing table which comprises information relating to the links between the router node and each adjacent router note; a security routing table which stores the unique first loopback address; and a secure access routing table which stores the unique second loopback address.

  • Patent number: 11650023
    Abstract: A selective fire firearm may be provided having a fully automatic open bolt and a semi-automatic closed bolt mode of operation. The firearm may include a trigger group having a trigger prop that ensures that, when the trigger is released in the fully automatic open bolt mode, the bolt carrier stops in an open bolt position held by an open bolt sear. The trigger prop may include a foot that, following a first trigger pull in the fully automatic open bolt mode, slides under and props a rear end of the trigger in a position that allows the open bolt sear to catch the bolt carrier when the trigger is released and propped but prevents the trigger sear from engaging the hammer.
