The invention discloses a method transferring packets between a mobile host device (100) and a source node via a number of independent data networks while maintaining a secure connection. The independent networks may include, for example, the Internet (120), localized Access Zones (110, 140), a Corporate Intranets, a Home Network (130) etc. Problems may occur, for example, when the mobile node is using a co-located care-of address, in which case both IP-in-IP and IPsec tunneling transformations are performed, and the current IPsec and IP-in-IP implementations cannot perform the required tunneling operations on the mobile host. This is because the IP-in-IP and IPsec tunneling when the IP-in-IP tunnel is not the outermost transformation. In an embodiment of the invention, the security policy operated by the mobile host includes a primary security policy and a dynamic secondary security policy that selectively apply specified transformations to certain packets in the data transfer.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
