  • Patent number: 11451533
    Abstract: The disclosed systems and techniques enable data cycling operations for an aliasing system to refresh first and second copies of aliases maintained by an aliasing server and a server that interacts with end-user devices (e.g., an enterprise server). More generally, the disclosed systems and techniques enable an enterprise system to use alias addresses (e.g., email addresses, phone numbers) for users while avoiding storing and managing the users' personal addresses. For example, the enterprise system may forward personal addresses (e.g., received from a user) to a relay or aliasing server configured to generate alias addresses (e.g., alias email addresses or alias phone numbers) based on the personal addresses. The aliasing server may operate as a “middle man” that receives emails, phone calls, or text messages directed to the alias addresses and that forwards the messages to the personal addresses (when appropriate).

  • Patent number: 11449526
    Abstract: Systems and methods described herein provide selective synchronization of DNS records. A synchronization data store is synchronized by: obtaining a complete set of domain name system (DNS) records for a first data center; and copying the complete set of DNS records to the synchronization data store. After the synchronization data store is initialized, at a particular time interval, a snapshot of the complete set of DNS records is repeatedly collected. Differences between the copied complete set of DNS records of the synchronization data store and the snapshot of the complete set of DNS records are identified. The synchronization data store is updated with the differences and a determination is made as to whether the differences should be implemented at a second data center. When the differences should be implemented at the second data center, the differences are propagated to the second data center, otherwise they are not.

  • Patent number: 11442626
    Abstract: Network scaling techniques for HCI and/or heterogeneous storage clusters. The techniques are based on the use of cluster-wide logical networks and IP port abstractions. Each logical network represents a pool of IP addresses having a common set of properties. Each logical network has an associated type and a corresponding set of protocols that define its purpose. Each IP port abstraction is associated with physical and/or virtual network objects inherently visible to a storage administrator. Each IP port abstraction functions as a target for assignment of an IP address from a pool of IP addresses represented by a logical network. The IP port abstractions are backed by underlying heterogeneous network objects but have unified sets of capabilities. Network scaling can be implemented by applying one or more IP addresses represented by one or more logical networks to selected sets of IP port abstractions backed by underlying heterogeneous network objects.

  • Patent number: 11438763
    Abstract: A process for improving network performance in systems that utilize secure domain name system (DNS) schemes. Encrypted DNS requests from devices in a local area network (LAN), such as a home or office, are submitted to a local proxy which stores cached DNS records. The proxy decrypts or examines at least a portion of the DNS request in order search for a matching record in its storage. Matching records are retrieved, encrypted, and supplied to the requesting device to satisfy the DNS request. If the proxy does not contain a matching record, the DNS query is encrypted and submitted to an external DNS server for resolution. The matching record can optionally be saved by the proxy prior to being supplied to the requesting device.

  • Patent number: 11438433
    Abstract: The embodiments herein describe a CDN that uses revalidation to force edge servers to refresh their cached objects (i.e., download new copies of the objects from the origin data center). Revalidation can be used by edge servers to determine whether an object currently cached at the edge servers has been updated or changed in the origin data center. The embodiments herein leverage revalidation to perform a forced refresh to force the edge servers to refresh their cached object, regardless whether those cached objects match the objects stored in the origin data center. A forced refresh can be used when there is a network connection that may have caused the cached objects to become corrupted. Moreover, the forced refresh can be performed in batches so as not to overwhelm the network and computing resources in the CDN.

  • Patent number: 11330008
    Abstract: Systems and methods are described to enable a DNS service to encode information into a network address to be advertised by the DNS service. Information encoded by a DNS service may include, for example, an identifier of a content set to which the network address corresponds (e.g., a domain name) and validity information, such as a digital signature, that verifies the validity of the network address. On receiving a request to communicate with the network address, a destination device associated with the network address may decode the encoded information within the network address to assist in processing the request. In some instances, the encoded information may be used to identify malicious network transmissions, such as transmissions forming part of a network attack, potentially without reliance on other data, such as separate mappings or contents of the data transmission.

  • Patent number: 11316825
    Abstract: An edge server of a distributed edge compute and routing service receives a tunnel connection request from a tunnel client residing on an origin server, that requests a tunnel be established between the edge server and the tunnel client. The request identifies the hostname that is to be tunneled. An IP address is assigned for the tunnel. DNS record(s) are added or changed that associate the hostname with the assigned IP address. Routing rules are installed in the edge servers of the distributed edge compute and routing service to reach the edge server for the tunneled hostname. The edge server receives a request for a resource of the tunneled hostname from another edge server that received the request from a client, where the other edge server is not connected to the origin server. The request is transmitted from the edge server to the origin server over the tunnel.
