Virginia Patent of the Month – April 2024

In today’s interconnected digital landscape, ensuring the security of communications among networked computing devices is paramount. With the rapid proliferation of connected devices and the escalating threat of cyber-attacks, organizations face increasing challenges in safeguarding their data and infrastructure. StealthPath Inc., a trailblazer in the realm of cybersecurity, has been granted a patent for a new product designed to fortify communications across networks: a kernel loadable module embodied in a non-transitory computer-readable storage medium.

This innovative solution operates at the core of computing devices, executing communication management operations to intercept and secure network connections effectively. The product’s sophisticated functionality includes verifying the authorization of user-applications to communicate with designated ports on remote computing devices, bolstered by the exchange of nonpublic identification codes. These codes, along with application identifiers and data type identification codes, are meticulously compared with pre-established values to ensure the integrity of communication pathways.

What sets StealthPath’s invention apart is its comprehensive approach to cybersecurity. By embedding the kernel loadable module within the operating system, the product operates seamlessly, whether dynamically linked, statically linked, or loaded via a kernel-to-kernel program interface. This versatility ensures compatibility across diverse computing environments while maintaining robust security measures.

Moreover, the product’s communication management operations extend beyond initial verification, encompassing packet assembly, decryption, and data translation processes. Each step is meticulously orchestrated to thwart potential threats and mitigate vulnerabilities, offering unparalleled protection against malware and cyber-attacks.

StealthPath’s system combines advanced technology with meticulous attention to security protocols and sets a new standard for protecting digital assets in an increasingly interconnected world. With StealthPath at the forefront of innovation, organizations can confidently navigate the evolving landscape of cyber threats, knowing their communications are fortified by state-of-the-art security measures.
