  • Patent number: 12009968
    Abstract: The present disclosure generally relates to a failover management service that can continuously monitor attributes of regional network resources to characterize resource availability per region. The failover management service associates the regional resource availability information with a set of hash values in which each individual hash value is representative a concatenation of a resource identifier and a client identifier associated with one or more individual clients. For individual hash values, the failover management service associates failover information, which is propagated to a DNS service. If a network-resource becomes unavailable, clients can transmit DNS queries including a hash value that discovers the appropriate failover information for the specific network-based resource and client device.

  • Patent number: 12010112
    Abstract: A method for creation of a secured connection for an inoperable virtual machine includes receiving a token at an on-host service running on an inoperable virtual machine (“VM”) on a server. The token is generated by a remote service person. The method includes receiving a user generated password from a user having direct access to the on-host service. The method includes creating a secured connection, using the token and password, between the on-host service and a remote server of the service person. The method includes transmitting a VM identifier of the inoperable VM to the user and receiving communications from the remote server. The communications include commands for the inoperable VM. The service person accesses the on-host service and inoperable VM using the VM identifier and the password. The password and VM identifier are transmitted to the service person by the user via a channel separate from the secured connection.

  • Patent number: 11979372
    Abstract: A new approach is proposed that supports IP address lookup. An IP address updater creates a bitmap of an IP address space, wherein each bit in the bitmap corresponds to an IP address in the IP address space. The compressed bitmap is then populated and stored permanently on a shared memory storage that is accessible by multiple client applications at the same time. The client applications may each establish and maintain a connection to the shared memory storage through an IP address lookup agent. When a lookup request for an IP address is received, the IP address lookup agent checks the bitmap and associated information of the IP address space on the shared memory storage to determine if the IP address is malicious or not and to inform the client application making the request accordingly, while the bitmap on the shared memory storage is updated with new IP address update.

  • Patent number: 11943257
    Abstract: Selectively rewriting URLs is disclosed. An indication is received that a message has arrived at a user message box. A determination is made that the message includes a first link to a first resource. The first link is analyzed to determine whether the first link is classified as a non-rewrite link. In response to determining that the first link is not classified as a non-rewrite link, a first replacement link is generated for the first link.

  • Patent number: 11941491
    Abstract: In some embodiments, a non-transitory processor-readable medium stores code representing instructions to be executed by a processor. The code includes code to cause the processor to receive a structured file for which a machine learning model has made a malicious content classification. The code further includes code to remove a portion of the structured file to define a modified structured file that follows a format associated with a type of the structured file. The code further includes code to extract a set of features from the modified structured file. The code further includes code to provide the set of features as an input to the machine learning model to produce an output. The code further includes code to identify an impact of the portion of the structured file on the malicious content classification of the structured file based on the output.

  • Patent number: 11941456
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method includes storing usage of a resource of said computer system as time-stamped resource usage values, comparing said time-stamped resource usage values with predetermined time-stamped performance goal values, assigning a time-stamped priority value to an application that is running based on at least one of said performance goal values, identifying a future workload demand value by applying a time-series analysis algorithm to at least some of said time-stamped resource usage values and a corresponding at least some of said time-stamped performance goal values for said application resulting in workload demand time frames and related amplitudes of said workload demand time frames, and adjusting a dispatch priority value for said application by setting a minimum dispatch priority for said application based on said future workload demand value.

  • Patent number: 11935113
    Abstract: Improved techniques and systems for delivery and acquisition of digital assets are disclosed. The techniques and systems are especially suitable and useful for delivering digital assets (e.g., media assets) that are available for acquisition and electronic delivery from online stores to electronic devices. In accordance with one aspect, when a digital asset is acquired from an online store via an electronic device associated with a user, the digital asset can be arranged for delivery to a number of other of electronic devices also associated with the user. It will be appreciated that the digital asset can be delivered and acquired without requiring explicit user input or instruction in accordance with another aspect. Other aspects of the techniques and systems include customization of configuration and user interfaces that are provided to facilitate acquisition of digital assets in a more efficient manner.

  • Patent number: 11936621
    Abstract: The present application relates to embodiments for detecting firewall drift. In some embodiments, a first set of firewall rules of a first firewall for a first instance of a distributed application, a second set of firewall rules of a second firewall for a second instance of the distributed application, and a mapping of IP addresses to identifiers of services from amongst a first set of services of the first instance and a second set of services of the second instance may be obtained. First connectivity data and second connectivity data may be generated indicating, for each of IP address associated with the first and second set of firewall rules, a respective port number over which communications between a respective IP address are transmitted, and generating comparison data indicating whether firewall drift is detected based on a comparison of the first connectivity data and the second connectivity data.

  • Patent number: 11924160
    Abstract: Techniques for management of traffic in a network. The techniques provide application awareness in a Network Address Translation (NAT) system. In some examples, a first traffic is received at a first switch in a network from a first application hosted behind the first switch. The first switch identifies a first resource tag associated with the application from the first traffic. Further, the first switch identifies a first rule from the first resource tag indicating that the first traffic is to be routed through an intermediate device that performs network address translation. Moreover, the first switch transmits the traffic to an intermediate device, which perform NAT to translate the source IP address of the first traffic to a second IP address. Finally, the intermediate device sends the traffic to a destination device indicated by the first traffic.
