  • Publication number: 20210152283
    Abstract: A system and method for detecting a scrambling seed in communication between a drone and a controller are described. The system comprises a radio-frequency (RF) receiver configured to receive an RF signal transmitted between the drone and a controller. The RF signal includes scrambled data that contain repetitions of unscrambled data based on known scramblers with an unknown scrambling seed. The system further comprises a memory device in communication with a hardware processor and having stored computer-executable instructions to cause the hardware processor to identify the smallest number of bits required in each segment of scrambled data for data combining by finding an invertible predetermined matrix. The hardware processor is configured to determine the unknown scrambling seed based on a function combining the predetermined matrix, transition matrices of scramblers, and segments of received scrambled data.

  • Patent number: 8504846
    Abstract: A system for securely storing data is provided. The system includes a transformation component operable to scramble or encrypt the data, a dissection component operable to divide the data into a plurality of segments, and a storage component operable to store the plurality of segments in a plurality of memory locations. These components can operate various schemes identified by encoded identifiers and new schemes can be added to the system at any time. A user device can use a combination of a transformation scheme, a dissection scheme, and a storage scheme to protect stored private data at any point in time. The combination can be changed quickly by the user device autonomously or upon receiving an instruction to do so.

  • Patent number: 7979734
    Abstract: A method for preventing service disruption for a device in a network is provided. The method includes populating a filter list with an IP address declared to be valid for a server in the network and populating a rainy day list with an IP address discovered to be valid for the server. The method also includes requesting a DNS server to resolve a server domain name to a server IP address. When no response to the request is received, an IP address on the rainy day list is used to attempt to contact the server. When a response is received, the received IP address is compared to an IP address on the filter list or the rainy day list. When the received IP address matches an IP addresses on the filter list or the rainy day list, the received IP address is used to contact the server.

  • Patent number: 7877469
    Abstract: A system is provided that includes a manager device that executes a Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) manager. The system also includes an agent device coupled to the manager device. The agent device executes a SNMP agent that selectively provides access to managed data. The SNMP manager enables a user to issue a login command. The SNMP agent processes the login command and, if the user is authenticated, allows the user to access the managed data using a session identifier.

  • Publication number: 20070162478
    Abstract: A telecommunications network element is provided that includes a plurality of software components configured to communicate with one another in a service-oriented architecture. In another embodiment, a network element is provided that includes a service provider that is operable to provide a service and to send a register message to register the service. The register message includes a service provided by the service provider and an identifier used to communicate with the service provider to invoke the service. The network element also includes a service registry and service client. The service registry is operable to receive and store and register message from the service provider. The service client is operable to send a find message to locate the identifier of the service provider in the service registry and to send an invoke message to invoke the service of the service provider.
