  • Publication number: 20200162432
    Abstract: This document describes, among other things, systems and methods for more efficiently resuming a client-to-origin TLS session through a proxy layer that fronts the origin in order to provide network security services. At the time of an initial TLS handshake with an unknown client, for example, the proxy can perform a set of security checks. If the client passes the checks, the proxy can transmit a ‘proxy token’ upstream to the origin. The origin can incorporate this token into session state data which is passed back to and stored on the client, e.g., using a TLS session ticket extension field, pre-shared key extension field, or other field. On TLS session resumption, when the client sends the session state data, the proxy can recover its proxy token from the session state data, and upon successful validation, bypass security checks that it would otherwise perform against the client, thereby more efficiently handling known clients.

  • Publication number: 20190327612
    Abstract: Systems and techniques are provided for detecting rogue base stations and preventing malicious actors from intercepting and stealing data traffic from mobile devices through rogue base stations. Upon connecting to a newly detected base station for a cellular network service, a mobile device attempts to validate the cellular base station with a validation server before any data is transmitted over the new connection. If the mobile device does not receive a confirmation of validity from the validation server, the mobile device would identify the cellular base station as a rogue base station, disconnect from the rogue base station, and search for a valid base station for connection to the cellular network.

  • Patent number: 10377510
    Abstract: Various enhanced rocket fairings and associated mechanisms are discussed herein for split fairings with two fairing halves. In some implementations, electrically-actuated base clamps are included to deploy the rocket fairing by applying a spring force between a corresponding fairing half and a payload adapter, which directs movement of the fairing halves upwards and away from the payload adapter until release of the fairing halves. In other implementations, electrically-actuated fairing mechanisms are included to hold together a first fairing half and a second fairing half, and separate the first fairing half from the second fairing half using a spring force. In further implementations, one fairing half includes a tab feature configured to overlap a second fairing half. The tab feature can deform inward under a pressure differential between an exterior and a payload envelope to reduce a gap between the two fairing halves.

  • Publication number: 20190243924
    Abstract: Among other things, this document describes systems, devices, and methods for improving the delivery of resources embedded on a web page. In one embodiment, a content delivery network analyzes markup language documents that clients have requested to embedded resources, such as linked references to images, scripts, fonts, cascading style sheets, or other types of content. This analysis may be conducted on the content server and/or asynchronously, in a dedicated analytical environment, to produce delivery instructions. Where embedded resources have hostnames for which the content delivery network is authoritative, and where certain conditions are met, servers can be instructed to push additional certificates for such hostnames over the primary connection. When embedded resources have hostnames for which the platform is not authoritative, and where certain conditions are met, servers can be instructed to pre-fetch and push such resources with a signature from the authoritative origin.

  • Publication number: 20190209358
    Abstract: In combination with a knee brace, the variable radius spring assembly of the present invention provides a full range knee orthotic with support to the leg muscles without compromising the range of motion and the patient's normal walk/gate. The assembly comprises upper and lower hinge pieces attached to upper and lower sections of the brace, a spring bracket, and an elongated spring element that extends downward from the upper hinge piece past a catch on the lower hinge piece. Two such assemblies are attached to a knee brace, one on the inner side and one on the outer side. As the lower leg, and the lower hinge piece, move rearward, the catch forces the spring element rearward and slides downward along the spring element. Consequently, the spring element has a non-linear response requiring approximately the same about of force to deflect the spring element throughout its range of rearward travel.
