Publication number: US20220029949A1
Application number: 17/496,864

Abstract:
Devices in enterprise-scale networks are often tracked by asset catalogs that record the physical locations of respective devices. Such tracking often involves administratively heavy communication of device deployment, and communication or recording errors may lead to missing catalog entries or entries that incorrectly identify the physical locations of the devices. Instead, a MAC address encoding may be established that maps physical locations to particular MAC addresses, such as representing a building, floor, room, row, and rack of a device in the second through sixth MAC address octets. A locator device with a network adapter featuring a selected MAC address that encodes a particular physical address may be inserted into a network device at the physical location. The physical location of the network device may thereafter be queried for the MAC addresses of connected devices, and the selected MAC address may be translated into the physical location of the network device.

Publication number: US20220030433A1
Application number: 17/493,354

Abstract:
A computer device may include a memory configured to store instructions and a processor configured to execute the instructions to receive a request from a user equipment (UE) device to resolve a Domain Name System (DNS) query for a Uniform Resource Locator (URL) and determine that the URL corresponds to a malicious URL. The processor may be further configured to select to not resolve the DNS query in response to determining that the URL corresponds to a malicious URL and send an indication to the UE device that the URL corresponds to a malicious URL.
