||PCT/GB2014/050701||VODAFONE IP LICENSING LIMITED||GOLAUP, Assen|
Authentication control for devices within a cellular network is provided. The authentication between a device and an authenticating entity within the cellular network allows the device to access a non-cellular network via one or more access points. Information is obtained about a load caused by the devices located within a cell or cell group performing authentication. If it is determined that the load requires to be controlled, the cellular network controls performance of the authentication by a set of the devices. An indication that performance of the authentication by a device must be controlled is received and performance of the authentication by the device is controlled based on the indication. An identity of a cell or group of cells providing coverage in an area where an access point is located is included within a field of a RADIUS or DIAMETER message, forwarded by the access point to an authenticating entity.

||WO||WO/2014/147359 - FIREWALL TESTING||25.09.2014||
||PCT/GB2014/000086||BRITISH TELECOMMUNICATIONS PUBLIC LIMITED COMPANY||KEARNEY, Paul, Joseph|
The invention provides a method of testing a firewall for a communications network, and an equivalent apparatus. More specifically, the method allows a high-level firewall policy model to be defined based on input provided by a firewall administrator without specialised knowledge in mathematically formal languages. The firewall policy model represents an idealisation of the firewall under test, the firewall policy, and the network environment in which the firewall is deployed. One or more sets of test cases is generated based on the policy mode. The generated test case set includes at least one test case comprising a specification of a packet to be processed by the firewall under test and the expected outcome of processing the packet by a firewall compliant with the policy. Preferably, the generated test case set allows potential failure of the firewall under test to implement the policy correctly to be detected. The test packets specified in the test cases are subsequently provided to the firewall under test for processing. The outcome of the processing is monitored, and the observed packets compared with the expected results to determine whether the firewall under test is functioning according to the firewall policy.

This invention relates to a novel, intuitive computing system which has a processing unit and screen, and incorporates its own operating system that manages spaces in a range of virtual layers that is able to operate independently, and also access and work with selected proprietary operating systems. The basis for the invention is in establishing a new innovative methodology for programing which establishes a menu in an object or even adds specific functions of this menu to another object. Current architectures, languages and methodologies allow the creation of this new methodology, but substantial improvements are found at different levels. The invention also involves the creation of a map in which all components of an application are represented, and where every component is divided into sub-components. This map also recognises all the processes for each component and sub-component in an individual or grouped format.
