  • Patent number: 11075959
    Abstract: A system includes a security controller located within a central-zone in communication with a provisioned agent operating on an edge-zone device. The security controller may implement controller-blind security control on the edge-zone device by making security authorization determinations using a secure-operation confidence analysis performed by the provisioned agent. The provisioned agent, operating within the edge-zone, may have access to un-sanitized data, which may be unavailable to the security controller in the central-zone. The security controller may provide condition-descriptors via a secure-operation confidence assignment matrix. Using the condition-descriptors, the provisioned agent determine feedback, which may include a secure-operation confidence coefficient, based on the un-sanitized data to which the security controller is blind.

  • Patent number: 11070513
    Abstract: The DNS-based method of transmitting data provides a telecommunication method for transmitting user-selectable data through the Domain Name System (DNS). Selected data is encoded as an alphanumeric character string on a user device. A uniform resource locator (URL) having a domain part and a host part is generated, where the host part is constructed from the alphanumeric character string. The URL is transmitted from the user device to a local DNS server. The URL is forwarded from the local DNS server to an authoritative DNS server associated with a domain name of the domain part. A set of response bytes, which are responsive to the user-selectable data encoded as the alphanumeric character string of the host part, is generated at the domain and transmitted from the authoritative DNS server to the local DNS server. The set of response bytes are transmitted from the local DNS server to the user device.

  • Patent number: 10911561
    Abstract: A method of caching web content, performed by a network node such as a caching proxy, is disclosed. The method comprises receiving, from a client, a Domain Name System (DNS) resolution request comprising a hostname. The DNS resolution request is forwarded to a DNS server. A DNS resolution response comprising an Internet Protocol (IP) address corresponding to the hostname is received from the DNS server. The DNS resolution response is forwarded to the client. The method further comprises determining if the DNS resolution request relates to a web session, and if so, retrieving an index page from a web server associated with the received IP address, and caching the retrieved index page. Thereby, a subsequent initial Hyper Text Transfer Protocol (HTTP) request from the client for that index page can be accelerated.

  • Patent number: 10911399
    Abstract: A recursive DNS nameserver system and related domain name resolution techniques are disclosed. The DNS nameservers utilize a local cache having previously retrieved domain name resolution to avoid recursive resolution processes and the attendant DNS requests. If a matching record is found with a valid (not expired) TTL field, the nameserver returns the cached domain name information to the client. If the TTL for the record in the cache has expired and the nameserver is unable to resolve the domain name information using DNS requests to authoritative servers, the recursive DNS nameserver returns to the cache and accesses the resource record having an expired TTL. The nameserver generates a DNS response to the client device that includes the domain name information from the cached resource record. In various embodiments, subscriber information is utilized to resolve the requested domain name information in accordance with user-defined preferences.

  • Patent number: 10902196
    Abstract: Webpages are optimizing through the use of experiments that compare the responses of viewers that are either presented with the original webpage or a variant thereof. One or more variants are first defined through the use of a browser-based editor application that initially examines the webpage for a snippet of code. The snippet can be added to the webpage, if missing, and the webpage returned to the editor application. Changes made to the webpage to define a variant are saved in variation code. When the webpage is later requested by multiple viewers, in each instance the viewer receives the webpage with the snippet, the snippet instructs the browser to download a file, and the instructions of the file determine whether the viewer will see the variant or the original webpage. Tracking viewer responses to the webpage and the variant allow a statistical basis for comparison to be developed.

  • Patent number: 10891018
    Abstract: A set of elements, such as, for example, a path, a directory list, a playlist, and a listing of information associated with a file or a song, may be truncated so that a partial set may be generated and displayed. The truncation may be performed in an intelligent manner to produce a meaningful truncated portion. Such a partial set may be beneficial when the space allotted for display of the set is small to begin with or is reduced. In one implementation, a display size of a set is compared with a size of a display area. A data element is selected based on the comparison, and a display space size is determined for the selected data element. A truncated, yet meaningful, portion is determined for the selected data element, the portion fitting within the display space size.
