A method of routing data across a network receives a session request from a client node to access at least one node in a local network having a plurality of nodes. The method also receives a client certificate (e.g., a digital certificate at least partially specified by known standards, such as the “X509 Standard”) from the client node. The client certificate has client information specifying at least one node to receive packets from the client node. Next, the method uses the client certificate to execute an authentication process. If the authentication process authenticates the client node, then the method routes data packets from the client node to at least one node in the local network as specified by the client information in the client certificate.
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.
