  • Publication number: 20220407888
    Abstract: A Secure/Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions (S/MIME) key material publication system that converts cryptographic material extracted from digitally signed and validated S/MIME messages it receives into key material formats suitable for populating email address books. Publication of the address book contents both internal and external to an organization is done using the standard address book lightweight database access protocol (LDAP). The wide availability and coordination of such automated address books distributing key material across the Internet allows the large installed base of S/MIME email clients to immediately send secure encrypted email across organizational boundaries. The system serves the role of public key server thus removing a barrier to ubiquitous secure encrypted email by simplifying global key management.

  • Patent number: 10057214
    Abstract: A system that converts standardized lightweight database access protocol (LDAP) requests into a series of domain name system (DNS) requests to look up requested information. DNS responses are validated using DNS security extensions (DNSSEC) to ensure their validity, then converted into standardized LDAP responses. The system is either operated as a service for public use on the Internet or private use in an enterprise; or as an application running on end user machines, e.g., laptops, mobile phones, to guarantee end-to-end security by validating responses on the end user machine. The standardized, widespread nature of the LDAP allows existing applications to immediately reap the benefits of global, ubiquitous, cross-organizational, trans-national data distribution via DNS secured by DNSSEC.

  • Publication number: 20180197425
    Abstract: Self-monitoring analysis and reporting techniques are described. Within an educational environment, a teacher computer and one or more student workstations are communicatively connected via a network. The student workstations are implemented to include one or more sensors and a neural network to analyze data from the sensors to determine a cognitive or affective state of the student. Based on the state of the student, a student user interface can be updated to maintain the student's attention and/or to prompt the student to seek out help or additional resources when confused. Furthermore, based on the state of the student, a teacher user interface can be updated to provide real-time visualization of the current state of each student in the educational environment.

  • Patent number: 9934263
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present invention include systems and methods for insuring better query consistency between at least two different databases, where one faster database has more up-to-date information than another slower database, and wherein updates are typically applied to the faster database first and then to the slower database. In embodiments, the systems and methods also insure that a query to the slower database is not performed until a set of one or more updates from the faster database have been applied to that slower database.

  • Patent number: 7925693
    Abstract: An architecture that can provide for improved network content filtering is described herein. In particular, access to remote resources can be controlled by a remote mechanism. In accordance therewith, a gateway can seamlessly and/or transparently redirect packets from a client that are meant for an intended destination to an access control component. The access control component can determine whether the client has access to the resources requested. In addition, the gateway can provide IPSec features on behalf to the client.

  • Publication number: 20070005765
    Abstract: An improved network content filtering system and method utilize the network address translation functionality of a shared network connection to redirect outgoing packets from a client intended for a destination web server to an access controlling web server instead. Before a session to the destination web server is established, the access controlling web server either approves or refuses the connection, providing a content filtering mechanism. If the connection is refused, the access controlling web server may substitute other content for a filtered URL. In order to identify the client, the shared connection may additionally embed an identifier token in the redirected traffic, so as to customize the filtering action or to facilitate billing functions.
