  • Patent number: 10075402
    Abstract: One embodiment provides a transport-framework system that facilitates command messages to be communicated in a layer-agnostic manner. During operation, the system generates, by a component of a stack of communication modules, a first command message for a target entity. The first command message includes a name unique to the target entity, and the stack does not require a respective communication module to communicate only with a layer above or below thereof. The component sends the first command message to the target entity by inserting the first command message into a queue corresponding to the component. The component can also receive a second command message from a sending entity via a queue corresponding to the sending entity, and the second command message includes a name unique to the component. This facilitates command messages to be communicated in a layer-agnostic manner.

  • Patent number: 9992234
    Abstract: A device control system is associated with individual devices connected through a network control point to a gateway and thereby to the Internet. The gateway inserts an EDNS0 pseudo resource record into an additional data section in each DNS query initiated by an individual device, the EDNS0 pseudo resource record identifying the initiating device. A dynamic policy enforcement engine in front of the DNS engine intercepts the DNS query, identifies the initiating device, and selects a policy that applies to the device. The dynamic policy enforcement engine may provide parental control and security service to the individual device by blocking the DNS query or passing it to the DNS engine according to the policy. A component that intercepts DNS queries may provide several additional types of services to the individual devices, including advertising, messaging, mobile device tracking, individual device application control, and delivery of individualized content.
