  • Patent number: 11502994
    Abstract: A method of separating identity IPs for identification of applications from the locator IPs for identifying the route is provided. A virtual service layer (VSL) protocol stack uses the IP addresses assigned by network administrators to the application endpoints to support the TCP/IP stack as the identity IP addresses that are not published to the underlay network for routing. On the other hand, the VSL stack uses the IP addresses assigned by the underlay network to the VSL enabled endpoints and VSL enabled routers as the locator IP addresses for routing packets. The VSL stack formats application flow packets with identity headers as identity packet and encapsulates identity packet with the locator header to route the packet. The separation of the identity and locator identifications are used to eliminate the network middleboxes and provide firewall, load balancing, connectivity, SD-WAN, and WAN-optimization, as a part of the communication protocol.

  • Patent number: 11449630
    Abstract: Aspects and examples are disclosed for improving security of authentication elements for validating a user of a user device. In one example, a processor of a user device establishes a first communication channel with a host computing system, and a user interface capable of transmitting information to the host computing system via the first channel. An API on the user device establishes a second communication channel with an identification-and-authentication system. The API receives sensitive information entered in the user interface and prevents transmission of the sensitive information to the host computing systems via the first channel. The API also transmits to the identification-and-authentication system, via the second channel, a signal including the sensitive information. The identification-and-authentication system may use the signal to send to the host computing system an additional signal verifying that the user of the user device is authenticated.

  • Patent number: 11424931
    Abstract: A trusted execution environment on a computing device within an enterprise, whether owned by the enterprise or the employee/user, allows invocation of trusted enterprise applications without hindering external or non-enterprise apps from running on the same computing device. Each of the trusted apps can interact with other trusted apps on the same enterprise computing device in a trusted manner such that other apps or untrusted network connections are prevented for access to the trusted apps. The computing device, however, also executes non enterprise applications which operate independently of the enterprise apps in the same address space using the same unmodified operating system as the enterprise apps on the computing device. The trusted execution environment therefore restricts interprocess communication to be only within the set of enterprise apps and also permits unimpeded operation of other apps under the same OTS (off the shelf) operating system.
