A method and network device are disclosed for multicast forwarding. In one embodiment, the method includes receiving at a node configured to use a bit-indexed forwarding table a multicast message comprising an incoming message bit array. The method further includes comparing the incoming message bit array to a first neighbor bit array within a first forwarding table entry, and determining that for at least one relative bit position in the bit arrays a corresponding destination node is both a destination for the message and a reachable destination from a first neighboring node. The method further includes forwarding toward the first neighboring node a copy of the message, where a first node on the path of the forwarded message is not configured to use a respective bit-indexed forwarding table. An embodiment of the device includes a network interface, a memory and a processor configured to perform steps of the method.


A first customer edge network device receives an encapsulated packet that includes inner headers comprising source address information for a first service running on a first computing apparatus in a first home cloud and destination address information for a second service running on a second computing apparatus in a second home cloud. The customer edge network device inserts a predetermined portion of bits of a virtual domain identifier of the encapsulated packet into a label to form a virtual domain label for label-based routing. The virtual domain label is appended to the encapsulated packet. The encapsulated packet is sent to a first provider edge network device of a provider network. The first provider edge network device appends an virtual private network label to the encapsulated packet, and sends the encapsulated packet to a provider network device for label-based routing in the provider network.

In one embodiment, a method includes receiving client-server connection data for clients and servers, the data including IP addresses corresponding to the servers, for each one of a plurality of IP address pairs performing a statistical test to determine whether the IP addresses in the one IP address pair are related by common clients based on the number of the clients connecting to each of the IP addresses in the one IP address pair, generating a graph including a plurality of vertices and edges, each of the vertices corresponding to a different IP address, each edge corresponding to a different IP address pair determined to be related by common clients in the statistical test, and clustering the vertices yielding clusters, a subset of the IP addresses in one of the clusters providing an indication of the IP addresses of the servers serving a same application.


The subject disclosure relates to a method for scheduling logical resources in cloud platforms. A cloud platform system identifies resource candidates for hosting a logical resource of a cloud service. The system filters the resource candidates by running them through a filter chain, a collection of serially connected filters. The filter chain may contain one or more reference filters that reference other filter chains. When the resource candidates encounter one of the reference filters, the other filter chains can be triggered and processed. The system selects one or more resources for hosting the logical resource from the filtered resource candidates.


A data processing method comprises receiving, from a client computer, a first handshake message segment comprising a first client sequence value; sending to a server computer a second handshake message segment comprising a second client sequence value equal to the first client sequence value less an added data length value; receiving a third handshake message segment and sending a fourth handshake message segment and determining that connections to the client computer and the server computer have reached established states; receiving a first data segment comprising a first data length value; forming a second data segment that comprises: payload data from the first data segment; added data that is equal in size to the added data length value; and a second data length value equal to a sum of the first data length value and the added data length value; sending the second data segment to the server computer.

An electronic device includes a plurality of logic units, which have respective inputs and outputs and are arranged in a ring topology, such that an input of each of the logic units is coupled to an output of another of the logic units. Each of the logic units includes respective processing logic, which is identical to and operates in synchrony with the processing logic of the other logic units to process respective data values using at least one secret value stored in the device. The logic units are coupled, at an initial cycle of the device, to receive respective input values that are mutually uncorrelated. At subsequent cycles of the device, each of the logic units receives and operates on intermediate values that are output by another of the logic units.

Free space optics (FSO) is a wireless technology that utilizes optical frequencies. Previously available FSO transceivers are restricted to point-to-point links because of the high directivity of laser light used to transmit data. By contrast, various implementations disclosed herein include a multi-beam FSO apparatus that is less reliant on point-to-point links, and includes a lens assembly and a planar array of optical communication devices. The lens assembly includes at least one surface shaped to direct ingress light received substantially within a first angular range towards a focal plane, and to direct egress light away from the focal plane into the first angular range. The planar array includes a plurality of optical communication devices arranged in association with the focal plane of the lens assembly, wherein each of the plurality of optical communication devices characterizes at least one of a plurality of optical communication link endpoints.

In one embodiment, a plurality of data rates available for communication is identified at a first device in a network. Slots of a channel hopping schedule are also identified and the data rates are assigned to the slots of the channel hopping schedule to generate a data rate hopping schedule. The generated data rate hopping schedule is further provided to a second device in the network.


In one embodiment, network traffic data is received regarding traffic flowing through one or more routers in a network. A future traffic profile through the one or more routers is predicted by modeling the network traffic data. Network condition data for the network is received and future network performance is predicted by modeling the network condition data. A behavior of the network is adjusted based on the predicted future traffic profile and on the predicted network performance.


This document discloses a system and method for consolidating threat intelligence data for a computer and its related networks. Massive volumes of raw threat intelligence data are collected from a plurality of sources and are partitioned into a common format for cluster analysis whereby the clustering of the data is done using unsupervised machine learning algorithms. The resulting organized threat intelligence data subsequently undergoes a weighted asset based threat severity level correlation process. All the intermediary network vulnerabilities of a particular computer network are utilized as the critical consolidation parameters of this process. The final processed intelligence data gathered through this high speed automated process is then formatted into predefined formats prior to transmission to third parties.
