  • Patent number: 11126483
    Abstract: A messaging service may be distributed in a cluster of nodes such that each node includes an instance of the messaging service. To ensure that messages are not lost in the messaging service through a load balancer, addresses for each of the nodes may be accessed, and messages may be retrieved from individual instances of the messaging service by addressing the nodes directly and bypassing the load balancer. To retrieve messages, a client may cycle through the node addresses and retrieve messages until each corresponding message queue is empty. Once a message queue is empty, the client may stop sending requests to the corresponding node until the message queues on the other nodes have been emptied. Various request patterns may be used to cycle through node addresses, including Round Robin patterns and patterns that correspond to traffic patterns seen by the load balancer.

    Abstract: A system, method, and computer program product are provided for securing authorization tokens using client instance specific secrets. Tokens are valid for service requests only if time constraints and additional security constraints are met by additional information stored in the token in hashed form. A required comparison of a timestamp in a client service request header to the current server time limits the useful token life, e.g., to a few minutes. The service request header also includes data generated based on a secret previously assigned to a specific client instance. The secret may be generated by the server according to a public/private key scheme and sent to a particular client instance only once, e.g., during initial device registration. The secret may be omitted from service requests for public information. Service request headers may include device identifiers, so that service requests from known rogue clients may be ignored.
