  • Patent number: 11671910
    Abstract: The described technology is generally directed towards communication network application programming interface (API) promulgation. Using the techniques herein, APIs can be hosted at different locations within a network in a transitory manner, shifting from one location to the next. Furthermore, API configurations can change over time, in order to provide enhanced API security and/or to meet different expected needs of client equipment. An API manager can select network equipment to host APIs, in order to move the APIs between different network locations. A floater application within the core network can support the movement of the APIs by creating secure tunnels between the selected network equipment and the core network.

  • Patent number: 11656619
    Abstract: Example methods and systems are disclosed to provide autonomous vehicle sensor security. An example method may include generating, by a first autonomous vehicle, a first map instance of a physical environment using first environmental information generated by a first sensor of a first autonomous vehicle. A second map instance from at least one of a second autonomous vehicle located in the physical environment is received. The first map instance may be correlated with the second map instance. In response to a discrepancy between the first map instance and the second map instance, a secure sensor may be activated to generate a third map instance. In response to the third map instance verifying that the discrepancy accurately describes the physical environment, the first environmental information including the discrepancy is used to navigate the first autonomous vehicle.

  • Patent number: 11647378
    Abstract: Electronic subscriber identity modules (eSIM) can be more susceptible to hackers and more vulnerable than physical subscriber identity modules. The current disclosure discusses systems and methods to facilitate eSIM security by utilizing a management software application (MSA) hosted on a mobile device. This MSA can cross-reference eSIM registration data with mobile device signature data to determine if the correct user identity is associated with mobile device prior to an eSIM being issued to the mobile device. Additionally, various degrees of data flagging can be utilized to allow an end user to properly address an indication of mobile device vulnerability.

  • Publication number: 20230134941
    Abstract: The described technology is generally directed towards an automated security hangar for private cellular networks. In response to detecting that a user equipment is departing a geographic area served by a private cellular network, the user equipment can encrypt its data and send it to a private cellular network server. The server can receive and securely store the encrypted data, and the server can provide a code to the user equipment. The user equipment can store the code, disconnect from the private cellular network, and depart the geographic area. When the user equipment returns to the geographic area and reconnects to the private cellular network, the user equipment can present the code to the server. The server can validate the code, the user equipment, and/or the operator of the user equipment, and the server can return the encrypted data to the user equipment.

  • Publication number: 20230140098
    Abstract: Concepts and technologies disclosed herein are directed to an installable mutable intelligent security package (“IMISP”) and security system in Internet of Things (“IoT”) networks. According to one aspect disclosed herein, an IoT device can receive an IMISP. The IMISP can scan a plurality of memory locations of the memory for an IMISP operating system process. In response to finding the IMISP operating system process in a memory location of the plurality of memory locations, the IMISP and the IMISP operating system process can conduct a mutual authentication process. In response to a successful result of the mutual authentication process, the IMISP can self-install in the memory location. The IMISP can then scan the memory of the IoT device for an anomaly. In response to finding the anomaly, the IMISP can generate a report that includes information associated with the anomaly.

  • Publication number: 20230130128
    Abstract: The technologies described herein are generally directed to modeling radio wave propagation in a fifth generation (5G) network or other next generation networks. For example, a method described herein can include, facilitating, by a first device, receiving a first communication directed to a second device from a third device associated with a first telephone number. The method can further include determining, by the first device, that the first communication comprises a reference to a second telephone number different from the first telephone number, resulting in a number discrepancy. Further, based on the number discrepancy and an analysis of the first communication, the method can further include preventing, by the first device, communication of the first communication to the third device.

  • Publication number: 20230107418
    Abstract: Security mechanisms for content delivery networks (“CDNs”) are disclosed herein. One security mechanism can be used to mitigate or prevent dynamic content attacks. A system can execute a CDN manager to perform operations. In particular, the CDN manager can receive a plurality of hypertext transfer protocol (“HTTP”) requests, and parse a plurality of headers from the plurality of HTTP requests to determine a plurality uniform resource locators (“URLs”). The CDN manager can generate a plurality of web page images associated with the plurality of URLs. The CDN manager can execute a machine learning algorithm, such as a convolution neural network, to perform an analysis of the plurality of web page images. Based upon the analysis of the plurality of web page images, the CDN manager can determine whether the plurality of HTTP requests are for the same web page, which can be indicative of a dynamic content attack.
