Title
(EN) METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR TRACKING AND CONTROLLING A REMOTE DEVICE
(FR) PROCEDE ET SYSTEME DE POURSUITE ET DE COMMANDE D'UN DISPOSITIF DISTANT
Abstract
(EN)
A method and apparatus for controlling remote computing devices such as portable computers (14) containing associated client components (10). The method includes a given client component (10) contacting a status server (22) containing client component status information; receiving client component status information from the status server (22) relayed in response to the client component (10) contacting the status server; evaluating the received status information to determine a status of the given client component (10), such as whether or not the component is stolen; in response to determining a particular status, contacting a command server (24) configured to send executable commands to the client component (10) in response to being contacted; receiving a command from the command server (24) instructing the client component (10) to perform a desired task, and in response to receiving said command, performing the desired task, such as transmitting location information or encrypting or deleting data.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un procédé et un système permettant de commander des dispositifs de calcul tels que des ordinateurs portables (14) contenant des composants client associés (10). Selon ce procédé, un composant client (10) contacte un serveur d'état (22) contenant des informations sur l'état du composant client et reçoit en réponse des informations du client du serveur d'état (22); on évalue les informations d'état reçues afin de déterminer un état du composant client déterminé (10), par exemple, afin de déterminer si le composant est volé ou non; en réponse à la détermination d'un état particulier, le composant client (10) contacte un serveur d'ordres (24) conçu pour envoyer des ordres exécutables au composant client (10) lorsqu'il est contacté, puis il reçoit un ordre du serveur d'ordres (24) lui demandant d'effectuer une tâche voulue, et en réponse à cet ordre, il accomplit la tâche voulue, par exemple, la transmission d'informations d'emplacement ou le chiffrement ou l'effacement de données.
