  • Publication number: 20180337915
    Abstract: Systems and methods for role-based access control to computing resources are presented. In an example embodiment, a request to perform a type of access of a computing resource is received via a communication network from a process executing on a client device. Using a data store storing process identifiers and associated access control information, access control information associated with the requesting process is identified based on a process identifier of the requesting process. Based on the access control information associated with the requesting process, a determination is made whether the requesting process is allowed to perform the requested type of access of the computing resource. The request is processed based on the requesting process being allowed to perform the requested type of access of the computing resource.

  • Publication number: 20180218003
    Abstract: Multiple blockchains have block data strictures with different event granularities. A first blockchain adds blocks according to a data structure with high event granularity. A second blockchain adds a block digest according to a data structure with low event granularity. The block digest is a digest of the blocks added to the first blockchain.

  • Patent number: 9923905
    Abstract: In some example embodiments, a method comprises receiving a web service request for accessing a resource of a web service, with the web service request corresponding to a user and comprising an access token, identifying a zone for the web service request, identifying a security token provider based on the access token, identifying one or more trusted token providers for the zone, comparing the security token provider to the trusted token provider(s) for the zone, generating a determination that the security token provider does not match any of the trusted token provider(s) for the zone, and denying the web service request based on the determination that the security token provider does not match any of the trusted token provider(s) for the zone.

  • Publication number: 20170373860
    Abstract: Provided are a system and method for routing messages in a multi-tenant cloud computing environment based on digital certificates. In one example, a server includes a network interface configured to receive a request and a digital certificate from a network object, where the digital certificate includes a plurality of attributes. The server also includes a processor configured to determine whether the digital certificate is valid, and in response to determining the digital certificate is valid, detect tenant information from an attribute among the plurality of attributes included in the digital certificate. For example, the detected tenant information may identify a tenant of the multi-tenant cloud computing environment. The network interface may be further configured to transmit the request to the multi-tenant cloud computing environment based on the detected tenant information.

  • Publication number: 20170222999
    Abstract: In an example embodiment, a method, system, and program storage device for binding an industrial application to a plurality of services in an Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is provided. For each of a plurality of tenants, a service template corresponding to a group in which the corresponding tenant belongs is retrieved and an instance of the industrial application is instantiated for the corresponding tenant. Then, at runtime of an instance of the industrial application, a number of actions are taken. A request by the instance of the industrial application for a service identified by a first service name is detected. Then a credential for the service name is retrieved, with the credential identifying a location where an instance of the service identified by the first service name resides. The service identified by the first service name is then dynamically called using the location.

  • Patent number: 8995435
    Abstract: One embodiment of the present invention provides a computer system. The computer system includes a display mechanism, a storage, and a migration management mechanism. The storage stores a data structure indicating one or more port profiles. The migration management mechanism identifies one or more port profiles associated with a target switch for a migrating virtual machine, wherein the target switch is coupled to a target host machine of the virtual machine and recommends whether the target switch is suitable for the virtual machine by examining an identifier to the virtual machine in the port profiles associated with the target switch using the display mechanism.

  • Patent number: 8995287
    Abstract: One embodiment of the present invention provides a port profile management mechanism. The port profile management mechanism detects an active profile associated with a physical port on a switch and displays configuration of the port based on the identified port profile using the display mechanism. In addition, a port group management mechanism obtains information of a port group associated with a virtual machine, wherein the port group defines network configurations for the virtual machine. The port profile management mechanism detects a port profile associated with the virtual machine coupled to a physical port on a switch and displays an alert using the display mechanism in response to the port group and the port profile being out of synchronization.

  • Publication number: 20140351704
    Abstract: Embodiments which utilize a topology view GUI with elements in each of storage and general network views which indicate the connection to the alternate network via an icon. Properly selecting the icon causes the topology view of the other network to appear. This method allows the connections between the networks to be readily viewed without cluttering either topology and allows quick context changes to occur at the same point.
