Application: Method and apparatus for controlling computing assets within a zero-trust architecture (Patent ID: US20240064180A1)

The patent filed by The Boeing Co. describes a method and apparatus for controlling access to a multi-layer network with a zero-trust architecture. The method involves receiving an access request message from a computing device, determining a hierarchical penetration level based on identifiers in the request, and granting access privileges accordingly. The apparatus compares identifiers to a list of known identifiers to assign the appropriate hierarchical penetration level, allowing the computing device access to the network up to a permitted level based on the assigned level.

The claims detail the steps involved in determining the hierarchical penetration level for the computing device, which is based on factors such as MAC address, communication protocol, and authentication criteria. The apparatus assigns different penetration levels, ranging from the lowest to the highest hierarchical levels, based on the analysis of identifiers. This method ensures that computing devices are granted access and control privileges within the multi-layer network based on their assigned hierarchical penetration level, enhancing security and control over network access.
