  • Patent number: 12009979
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for zero-touch provisioning of devices, such as sensors, on a network. When a device is unable/cannot access a network via Ethernet, cellular, or near field communications capabilities resident on the device, the device can alternatively be provisioned via an intermediate network device, such as an access point using, e.g., Device Provisioning Protocol or Wi-Fi EasyConnect. A cloud-based network management system may receive a device's bootstrapping information during or after manufacturing of the device. Ultimately, the device, via the intermediate network device, is able to communicate with a back-end, cloud-based network insight system from which configuration parameters for the device may be obtained.

  • Publication number: 20230379801
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for multiple basic service set identifier (MBSSID) beaconing (from an access point (AP) standpoint) and MBSSID/virtual AP (VAP) scanning (from a client device perspective). To facilitate easier discovery of mesh APs/VAPs, BSSIDs associated with mesh VAPs can be advertised more frequently, e.g., being broadcast as a transmitted or non-transmitted BSSID in each MBSSID beacon. Additionally, information regarding mesh VAPs, such as mesh capability information, can be provided via intermediate discovery beacons or frames such that out-of-band scanning mechanisms can discover mesh VAPs faster. Additionally still, the existence of mesh VAPs can be advertised in a dedicated field of an MBSSID beacon.

  • Publication number: 20230336983
    Abstract: Examples described herein relate to a method for establishing a backup connectivity between a sensor and a management system. The sensor may be deployed in an IT infrastructure and configured to execute a one or more predetermined evaluations for the IT network and generate corresponding evaluation result. Thereafter, the sensor may determine whether a connection between the sensor and the management system via a primary connectivity is unsuccessful. In response to determining that the connection between the sensor and the management system via the primary connectivity is unsuccessful, the sensor may establish a backup connectivity by successfully connecting to an available wireless network using a security credential received by the sensor upon successful verification of public key information of the sensor via an authentication server. The sensor then transmits the evaluation result to the management system via the backup connectivity.

  • Publication number: 20230291759
    Abstract: Examples described herein relate to a method and a management system for evaluating an information technology (IT) infrastructure's vulnerability to a network attack. The management system determines whether a vulnerability evaluation template corresponding to a network attack is uploaded in a template repository. In response to determining that the vulnerability evaluation template is uploaded in the template repository, the management system transmits the vulnerability evaluation template to a sensor deployed in the IT infrastructure. The vulnerability evaluation template, when executed by the sensor, causes the sensor to generate an assessment indicative of a vulnerability of the IT infrastructure to the network attack. The management system receives the assessment from the sensor and reports it via a dashboard.
