Specific encryption that is based on topical issues in a message queue with a publish/subscribe option. Topic-based encryption driven by encryption policies to store and receiving messages uses the process of logging and activity tracking to guarantee the security of certain areas associated with encrypted messages. The authentication of both the publisher and consumer ensure encryption keys and decryption keys are utilized with confidence.

The present invention relates generally to systems for storing messages and more specifically to the processing of messages within the message queuing system in a secure way.

Information technology is known for its core competency in managing messages and information exchanges between businesses, between corporations, and between consumers to companies. For a long time, messaging systems have been utilized to store, forward, and distribute messages. In recent times, messaging systems such as Kafka are being considered as a form of database. These systems for messaging are increasingly being implemented in cloud computing systems in tandem with this development. (Note That the phrase “KAFKA” can be subject to trademark rights throughout the world however, is used only for the purposes of referring to products and services that are properly registered with the marks in the specific circumstances in which such rights are in place.

It is known for a secure key management system and a data transmission system which includes the transition system, a data consumption network device as well as a user network device as well as a data transmission network. The transmission management system is configured to collect user-specific data from the device that is a user through the data transmission network and receive a request for a specific service in relation to processing the data of the user using a proprietary method offered by the data consumption network device.

Additionally, it is known for a system that propagates policies for network configuration to utilize the publish/subscribe messaging system.

How to Search for Patents

  • Add keywords to your search. Keyword searches may turn up documents that are not well-categorized or have missed classifications during Step 2. For example, US patent examiners often supplement their classification searches with keyword searches. Think about the use of technical engineering terminology rather than everyday words.
  • Search for foreign patents using the CPC classification. Then, re-run the search using international patent office search engines such as Espacenet, the European Patent Office’s worldwide patent publication database of over 130 million patent publications. Other national databases include:
  • Search non-patent literature. Inventions can be made public in many non-patent publications. It is recommended that you search journals, books, websites, technical catalogs, conference proceedings, and other print and electronic publications.

To review your search, you can hire a registered patent attorney to assist. A preliminary search will help one better prepare to talk about their invention and other related inventions with a professional patent attorney. In addition, the attorney will not spend too much time or money on patenting basics.
