  • Publication number: 20190258520
    Abstract: Techniques for secure and efficient interfacing with a cloud computing service are described. In an embodiment, a cloud computing management service is programmed or configured to communicate with a cloud computing service. The cloud computing management service can be accessed by software engineers that are looking to deploy a software instance to a computing device of the cloud computing service. Thus, the cloud computing management service acts as an intermediary layer in front of the cloud computing service. In an embodiment, the cloud computing management service may store one or more frequently-used system parameters for deployment of software instances. The parameters conform to company's security protocols, compliance protocols, and/or other standards.

  • Publication number: 20190215385
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are systems and methods for sending packet replication over sets of bonded diverse packet paths with packet merge and deduplication at the bonded packet paths' egress thereby providing reduced packet loss, latency, and jitter while simultaneously providing high availability. Collectively these sets of bonded packet paths conveying replicated packets compose a virtual overlay network spanning diverse paths, and potentially diverse providers, and diverse network technologies. A control system continuously monitors the reachability and quality of synthetic or both synthetic traffic and bonded packet path traffic across all possible paths as input to the control system that dynamically while taking into account path cost manages the sets of bonded packet paths.

  • Publication number: 20190215188
    Abstract: Techniques for sending encrypted data includes establishing a plurality of different links between a first node and a different second node. The different links are different physical layer links or different virtual private network (VPN) links or some combination. The method also includes encrypting plaintext using a first value for an encryption parameter to produce ciphertext. Further, the method includes sending a first plurality of messages that indicate the ciphertext using at least one link of the plurality of different links. Still further, the method includes sending a different second plurality of messages that indicate the first value for the encryption parameter using at least one different link of the plurality of different links without introducing a random bit error.
