Application: Computing device with bridge to native app for security and resiliency (Patent ID: US20240103990A1)

The patent filed by Citrix Systems Inc. describes a client computing device that includes a display and a processor. The processor operates a browser to access a store providing resources, with available resources displayed on a web page. When a resource is selected, a launch message is generated, and an extension appends a store ID to the message. An adapter then assigns a native messaging host process to the store, enabling communication with a native app on the device to launch the selected resource. The system allows for efficient routing of messages between the extension, adapter, and native app, ensuring seamless communication and resource launching.

The claims associated with the patent detail the specific functionalities of the client computing device, including mapping store IDs to native messaging host processes, multiplexing messages between components, and managing the life cycle of native messaging host processes. The method outlined in the patent involves operating the browser, generating launch messages, appending store IDs, and assigning native messaging host processes. Additionally, the patent covers the use of browser and app extensions to facilitate communication between components, ensuring the successful launch of selected resources. Overall, the patent aims to streamline the process of accessing and launching resources from a store on a client computing device.
