  • Publication number: 20180276374
    Abstract: An apparatus includes a first processing resource to execute a program code, and a second processing resource separate from the first processing resource. The program code includes an embedded execution unit. The execution unit, during execution of the program code, calculates a first security value for a part of the program code. The second processing resource runs a validation program. The validation program receives the first security value, checks the first security value against a second security value calculated from a corresponding part of a reference copy of the program code to obtain a check result, returns the check result to the execution unit. The execution unit performs a security-related action in response to a check result indicating a mismatch between the first security value and the second security value.

  • Publication number: 20170046629
    Abstract: According to an example, statistics-based data trace classification may include generating sets of training data traces from training data information by assigning a subset of the training data information that has a predetermined property with a first label and assigning another subset of the training data information that does not have the predetermined property with a second label. A trained trace classifier may be generated to detect whether or not a set of input data traces satisfies the predetermined property. The trace classifier may be trained to learn the predetermined property from a statistical data object determined from the sets of the training data traces, and the first and second labels related to the sets of the training data traces.

  • Patent number: 7796515
    Abstract: A method of operating a first host within a network of a plurality of hosts. Over the course of a first time interval, requests received at the first host from a second host to send data to destination hosts are monitored. Identities of destination hosts monitored during the first time interval are compared with destination host identities in a record. Then, either data relating to requests which identify a destination host not in the record are stored in a storage buffer. Or the passage of data from the second host to the destination host within the network is limited over the course of the first time interval, so that during the first time interval the second host is unable to send data to more than a predetermined number of hosts not in the record.

  • Publication number: 20080104233
    Abstract: A networked computing platform implements an opportunistic data communication method. The computing platform creates, at the instigation of at least one application executing on the platform, data packets for transmission over a network. The packets are created using a hierarchy of programs (‘stack’) implementing a corresponding hierarchical suite of network protocols each associated with a corresponding protocol data unit (PDU) that comprises protocol-control information for that protocol. The opportunistic communication method involves the platform waiting for creation of a packet to be instigated and thereupon setting a parameter in protocol-control information of the packet to a value indicative of a characteristic of the computing platform, this characteristic being one unconnected with functioning of the network protocols. A network monitoring method and a network administration method are also disclosed.

  • Patent number: 7353539
    Abstract: A method of identifying a software vulnerability in computer systems in a computer network includes a multiple level scanning process controlled from a management system connected to the network. The management system runs a root scanner which applies an interrogation program to remote systems having network addresses in a predefined address range. When a software vulnerability is detected, the interrogation program causes the respective remote system to scan topologically local systems, the remote system itself applying a second interrogation program to the local systems to detect and mitigate the vulnerability using an associated mitigation payload. Whilst that local scanning process is in progress, the root scanner can be applied to remote systems in other predefined address ranges.
