  • Patent number: 10650147
    Abstract: A control flow enforcement solution for ensuring that a program or portion thereof behaves as expected during execution upon a processor. A reference control flow is pre-determined for the program using, for example, a control flow graph (CFG). The CFG is then analysed to provide a set of rules which describe how the program should behave under normal execution. As the program executes it is monitored and the rules are evaluated to enable detection of any unexpected control flow. An embodiment of this disclosure is configured to respond upon detection that a rule has been violated. The response can take the form of any appropriate intervention such as a processor interrupt, memory fault, processor reset or generation of an alert. In this way, an embodiment of this disclosure may provide a particularly effective mechanism for detecting and defending against malicious activities such as return oriented programming attacks.

  • Patent number: 10637805
    Abstract: A method for messaging includes receiving, a group message sent from a terminal device that is used by a first user. The group message includes a first group identifier for identifying a member set of universal identifiers corresponding to a group of users on a messaging platform and a first user identifier for identifying the first user. The first user identifier is a universal identifier generated when the first user logs in the messaging platform using a first-type account of a first messaging service. Further, the method includes determining the member set to receive the group message based on the first group identifier and sending the group message to the group of users based on the universal identifiers in the member set. The member set includes a second user identifier generated when a second user logs in the messaging platform using a second-type account of a second messaging service.

  • Patent number: 10637945
    Abstract: A notification job is executed as a background job in a recurrent notification framework. The registered scenario along with the recurrent notification information is retrieved from a central notification scenario registration table. The user information along with an application context is retrieved from a notification scenario BADI. The user information along with a notification preference is retrieved from a user registration table. The mapping information of the user identifier and the device identifier is retrieved from the device registration table. Based on the retrieved information, the notification channel is identified from the recurrent notification information. A recurrent notification is sent through the notification channel to a device.

  • Patent number: 10636014
    Abstract: Systems, methods and computer-readable media for providing conversational calendar integration are disclosed. According to aspects, a meeting organizer is able to select multiple proposed meeting times for the meeting. The attendees are presented with multiple proposed meeting times in the context of the attendee's calendar. The user interface within the meeting request is optimized to provide the user with a visual demonstration of the proposed meeting times, thereby providing the attendee with the ability to quickly and visually identify whether any of the proposed meeting times conflict. Thus, conversational calendar integration reduces network traffic and improves network efficiency/performance.

  • Patent number: 10637960
    Abstract: Methods for bridging computers functioning as Publish/Subscribe brokers are provided to build a distributed cluster for scalability by enabling publishers to connect to one broker and subscribers to that publisher to connect to a different broker. In one aspect, a method includes listening to an internal bridge port on one broker for receiving bridge connections from other brokers in the cluster, and in parallel, connecting to the internal bridge ports of each of the other brokers in the cluster, waiting for all such incoming and outgoing bridge connections to be completed, and then opening up the external port for serving actual clients. The method also includes creating separate bridges for each direction of traffic to make the broker code completely symmetric and also supporting the creation of an arbitrary number of bridge connections between each pair of brokers for each direction to reduce latency.

  • Patent number: 10630779
    Abstract: Logical scalable units (LSU) can be used within a single network data center to provide stateful scalability. However, LSUs are not suitable for operating across multiple network data centers in order to provide geographical redundancy in active-active scenarios while providing high availability. This is because the latencies associated with replicating full session information are unacceptably slow. An additional component in the LSU (known as an LSU Frontend) can be used to replicate a small subset of session information between LSUs. This subset of session information may be enough to enable LSUs to process requests in an acceptable way rather than outright failing. This may be particularly advantageous in scenarios where the requests relate to Voice over LTE calls, because outright failure is very perceivable to subscribers, and it causes resource leakage within the telecommunications network.
