  • Patent number: 11374902
    Abstract: A system for preventing inadvertent or untimely parameter changes to an active online field device from a secondary system different from a distributed control system application providing control instructions to the field device, where the parameter changes may cause detrimental effects to a plant process or activity. A request for a parameter change from the secondary system may be intercepted before the request is received by a field device or a controller for evaluation by an operator of the distributed control system. The validation process may provide a plant operator with override authority to approve or deny a set of critical parameter changes to an active field device or other active plant device.

  • Patent number: 11245629
    Abstract: In some embodiments, a method determines when a packet is fragmented into multiple fragmented packets in a flow between a first workload and a second workload. The method switches from generating an outer source port in the outer header using layer 4 information from the inner header to using layer 3 information from the inner header. A fragmented packet is encapsulated with the outer header that includes an outer source port value that is generated using the layer 3 information. The method initiates a process to determine when to switch back to using layer 4 information from the inner header to generate the outer source port. When it is determined to switch back to using layer 4 information, the method switches back to using layer 4 information from the inner header to generate the source port in the outer header of a packet from the first workload.

  • Patent number: 11171844
    Abstract: Techniques for deploying data services in a centrally managed network in a scalable, hierarchical manner are described. An example method generally includes generating a topological description of the centrally managed network, the topological description identifying network entities in the centrally managed network and connections between network entities in the network. A data management hierarchy for the centrally managed network may be generated from the topological description of the centrally managed network, and the data management hierarchy may identify network entities at which data services may be deployed in the centrally managed network. Data services and data rules may be deployed to the identified network entities based on the data management hierarchy, and data may be processed in the centrally managed network through the deployed data services.

  • Patent number: 11159652
    Abstract: A TCP intermediate device receives a SYN packet from a TCP client that is destined for a TCP origin server and indicates support for TCP fast open (TFO). A SYN-ACK packet is transmitted to the TCP client that includes a TFO cookie set by the TCP intermediate device. The TCP intermediate device receives a first ACK packet from the TCP client. A SYN packet is sent to the TCP origin server and a second SYN-ACK packet is received in response that does not indicate support for TFO. An ACK packet to the TCP origin server. Sometime after the TCP connection is completed, the TCP intermediate device receives a SYN packet from the TCP client that includes the TFO cookie and a payload of data. The TCP intermediate device establishes a TCP connection with the TCP origin server and transmits the payload of data to the TCP origin server.

  • Patent number: 11159480
    Abstract: A network management center includes a Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server. The network management center obtains from an identity server, client information indicating authentication of a client device in a wireless network that is connected to a network fabric. The network management center obtains from an edge node in the network fabric an Internet Protocol (IP) address request for the client device. The IP address request including a fabric domain identifier associated with the edge node. The network management center allocates an IP address for the client device based on the client information obtained from the identity server and the fabric domain identifier contained in the IP address request obtained from the edge node. The network management center provides to the edge node an Identifier Locator Addressing (ILA) address based on the IP address.

  • Patent number: 11153269
    Abstract: A DHCP server implementation includes transmission of a DHCP packet from a virtual machine executing on a server node to a node agent executing on the server node, generation, by the node agent, of a DHCP response packet based on the DHCP packet and on DHCP information previously stored in a local memory of the server node, and transmission of the DHCP response packet from the node agent to the virtual machine. Neither the DHCP packet transmitted by the virtual machine nor the DHCP response packet are transmitted out of the server node.

  • Patent number: 11140057
    Abstract: System and method for monitoring logical network traffic flows using a ternary content addressable memory (TCAM). An exemplary embodiment can provide a network port that is associated with a TCAM. The TCAM can be configured with a plurality of entries, wherein each TCAM entry contains a value. Further, each TCAM entry can be associated with at least one network counter. A predefined set of values can be retrieved from at least one header field of a data packet processed by the network port. Each value in the predefined set of values can be aggregated into a search value, and the search value can be compared to the value contained in each TCAM entry. When a match is found between the search value and the value contained in a TCAM entry, each network counter associated with the matching TCAM entry can be incremented.

  • Patent number: 11128466
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and apparatus are described providing social networking engines. Specifically, the present specification relates to a method for implementing software containers implementing social network engines that may be configured to act in a zero-knowledge environment. In such implementations, all information pertaining to the social network engine associated with a user that is stored in the container is solely that of a user unless explicitly shared by the user. In some implementations, the containers may be configured to participate in a publish-and-subscribe network in order to share information. In addition, the containers may be provisioned with controls so that global operators may comply with local privacy rules.

  • Patent number: 11108628
    Abstract: Disclosed are various examples for facilitating enrollment of a client device into more than one management framework. A client device can be enrolled with a management service as a fully managed device. The client device can also be enrolled with the management service as a personal or bring-your-own-device (BYOD), which causes a workspace to be created on the device that is segregated from the rest of the client device. Both enrollments can be managed by a remotely executed management service.
