  • Patent number: 10042664
    Abstract: A device remote access method includes receiving, by a bus filter driver on a thin client (TC) side, a request for remote access by a virtual machine (VM) side to a physical device on the TC side, converting, by the bus filter driver, the request for remote access into a remote operation instruction that may be read by a physical device driver, and sending, by the bus filter driver, the remote operation instruction to the physical device driver, where the remote operation instruction is used to instruct the physical device driver to drive the physical device to execute a read/write operation and return remote response data that carries an execution result of the read/write operation which implements remote access by the VM side to the physical device on the TC side, and because a device driver is not modified, the TC side may continue to normally access the physical device.

  • Patent number: 10039059
    Abstract: A method of authorizing a message received at a node in a wireless network is disclosed. The message from a sender device is formed by a plurality of symbols and includes a first message integrity indicator located at a predetermined distance from the start of the message such that further symbols of the message are included after the first message integrity indicator. The position of the first message integrity indicator in the message is determined, and a cryptographic operation is performed on at least some of the symbols of the message before the first message integrity indicator so as to generate a second message integrity indicator before the first message integrity indicator is received. The first and second message integrity indicators are compared, and an indication that the message is not authorized is provided if the second message integrity indicator does not match the first message integrity indicator.

    Abstract: A receiving node in a computer system that includes a plurality of types of execution units receives an active message from a sending node. The receiving node compiles an intermediate language message handler corresponding to the active message into a machine instruction set architecture (ISA) message handler and the receiver executes the ISA message handler on a selected one of the execution units. If the active message handler is not available at the receiver, the sender sends an intermediate language version of the message handler to the receiving node. The execution unit selected to execute the message handler is chosen based on a field in the active message or on runtime criteria in the receiving system.

A terminal node receives a message originating from a client terminal, wherein the terminal node serves as an entry point to, and services communications connections over, a wide area network for the client terminal. The terminal node determines that the message comprises an initiation request for establishing a communications connection over the wide area network between the client terminal and a remote server, and that an intercept state is in effect. The terminal node establishes the communications connection as a local connection between the client terminal and the terminal node, and services the communications connection via a local server function, wherein the servicing of the communications connection via the local server function comprises a provision of status-based messaging to the client terminal.

  • Patent number: 9942145
    Abstract: Present disclosure relates to methods for preparing BGP update messages for transmission and processing received update messages. The methods are based on grouping path attributes common to a plurality of IP address prefixes into respective sets identified with respective set identifiers and, instead of duplicating path attributes in each BGP update message, including a respective identifier referring to a certain set of path attributes provided in an earlier BGP update message when sending subsequent update messages. Grouping of path attributes into individual sets associated with respective identifiers provides significant advantages by enabling re-use of the results of previous processing on both the sending and receiving sides associated with transmission of BGP update messages. In addition, such an approach limits the amount of information transmitted in the control plane because duplicate sets of path attributes may only be transmitted once and merely be referred to in subsequent update messages.

  • Patent number: 9886411
    Abstract: A data transfer device performing data transfer at a high speed if a descriptor chain cannot be entirely transferred by a single activation. In a DMA control device, when a transfer activation signal is asserted, a descriptor information control part sequentially reads descriptor information from a descriptor information storage part. When the count of pieces of descriptor information that have been read becomes equal to a transferable frame count, a backward skip control part outputs a backward skip instruction. When the backward skip instruction is outputted, a descriptor information control part skips reading remaining descriptor information.

  • Patent number: 9866463
    Abstract: The present invention is directed towards systems and methods for managing a rate of request for an object transmitted between a server and one or more clients via a multi-core intermediary device. A first core of the intermediary device can receive a request for an object and assume ownership of the object. The first core can store the object in shared memory along with a rate-related counter for the object and generate a hash to the object and counter. Other cores can obtain the hash from the first core and access the object and counter in shared memory. Policy engines and throttlers in operation on each core can control the rate of access to the stored object.

  • Patent number: 9860192
    Abstract: A system includes a plurality of servers and a border server. The border server receives a request for a transaction that can be accomplished by performing tasks, identifies a first task of the tasks, identifies an initial server of the servers to perform the first task by consulting, based on a type of the first task, routing data stored in memory of the border server, and requests that the initial server perform the first task. Each of the servers will, in response to receiving a task from the border server, perform the received task using related data stored exclusively on the server, determine whether the received task requires an additional task, identify a next server to perform the additional task by consulting routing data stored in memory of the server, and request that the next server perform the additional task.

  • Patent number: 9848320
    Abstract: The encrypted communication method and an encrypted communication system include a mobile terminal and an application server to execute two-way authentication and establish encrypted mobile communication between them, and then execute key derivation. A client host is started up, and reads and run client system software and client network application software stored in its Read-Only Memory (ROM). The client host and the application server retrieve the IP address of the counter-party respectively, and set IP address filtering rules respectively. The application server generates random numbers and keys, and sends the random numbers and the keys to the client host via the mobile terminal. The client host and the application server execute IP address filtering, two-way authentication, and key negotiation, and thereby establish encrypted network communication. The system and method ensure end-to-end security of network applications.
