Patents by Inventor Khaldoon AL-ZOUBI

Khaldoon AL-ZOUBI 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: 10341188
    Abstract: A service description may be used in network virtualization in order to specify requirements of an application. In order to provide network virtualization for generic networking components, including legacy networking components, the service description is mapped to a logical network implementation and then subsequently mapped to a physical implementation.
    Type: Grant
    Filed: January 27, 2015
    Date of Patent: July 2, 2019
    Assignee: HUAWEI TECHNOLOGIES CO., LTD.

  • Patent number: 10015162
    Abstract: A method implemented by a network firewall, comprising obtaining a first authentication token for a network test, receiving a test request message for performing the network test on a network element (NE) connected to the network firewall, authenticating the test request message by determining whether the test request message includes a second authentication token that matches the first authentication token, and granting the network test on the NE when the second authentication token matches the first authentication token.

  • Patent number: 9584415
    Abstract: Routers using virtual routing and forwarding nodes to implement a service fabric of service chains. The router may configure M+1 virtual routing and forwarding instances, M being an integer representing a number of a plurality of service appliances in a data center network. Each virtual routing and forwarding instance may be associated with a routing table of routing rules to define various service chain routing paths. The routing rules are based on destination addresses in data packets.

  • Patent number: 9547570
    Abstract: The devices, systems, and methods test network connectivity, where the physical network is used to provide one or more service chains connecting service appliances, including firewalls, intrusion detection systems, load balancers, network address translators, web servers, and so on. A service chain may involve multiple routing paths. The devices, systems, and methods test network connectivity test network connectivity by injecting customized echo request packets on each routing path and collecting customized echo reply packets in response. The customized echo reply packets are processed and aggregated to isolate network connectivity problems.
