Claim of US Patent No. 10,693,884

20. A method for managing secure network communications by an end-point, the method comprising:communicating, to a controller, a unique hardware identifier that is associated with a first end-point and a device profile from the first end-point, wherein the device profile indicates the first device that is in direct communication with the first end-point;
receiving, at the controller, the unique hardware identifier and the device profile from the first end-point that is in communication with a network;
determining, at the controller, that the unique hardware identifier is present within a mission profile, wherein the mission profile comprises an indication of a second end-point to which the first-endpoint is allowed to communicate;
communicating to the first end-point a first encryption key that is uniquely matched to a decryption key privately held by the second end-point and a first translation profile that comprises instructions for communicating over a particular hardware adaptor with the first device;
receiving from the controller the first encryption key and the translation profile;
receiving device data from a first device in direct communication with the first end-point;
generating translated device data from the device data using the translation profile, wherein the translated device data is translated into a software language that is understandable by the controller; and
communicating the translated device data to the second end-point, wherein the device data is encrypted using the first encryption key.
