  • Patent number: 11687636
    Abstract: A user's emotion can be determined based on pupil dilation response to a challenge prompt. In response to an authentication request, a registered challenge prompt and an expected pupil dilation response can be retrieved. The challenge prompt can include one or more images or a video designed to cause a pupil dilation response in a user. The challenge prompt is displayed to the user and the user's pupil dilation response is captured. At least one user action of the user is monitored and an emotion is determined based on the at least one user action. The emotion is associated with the pupil dilation response.

  • Patent number: 11664975
    Abstract: A system includes a campaign management service to detect a campaign initiation request indicating a number of computerized devices to be updated for a campaign and store data corresponding to the computerized devices to be updated. The campaign management service can generate a bloom filter data structure comprising hash values based on the data for each of the computerized devices to be updated and transmit the bloom filter data structure to a network edge. The system can include the network edge that can use the bloom filter data structure from the campaign management service to determine whether a computerized device is to obtain a device update from the campaign management service. The network edge can retrieve the device update and modify the computerized device by transmitting the device update to the computerized device, which then installs it.

  • Patent number: 11657174
    Abstract: An authentication model dynamically adjusts authentication factors required for access to a remote resource based on changes to a risk score for a user, a device, or some combination of these. For example, the authentication model may conditionally specify the number and type of authentication factors required by a user/device pair, and may dynamically alter authentication requirements based on changes to a current risk assessment for the user/device while the remote resource is in use.

  • Patent number: 11658802
    Abstract: Techniques for rapid video on demand (VOD) media content breach response are described. In some embodiments, during content preparation, a server generates an encrypted media content item by generating a first encrypted portion using a first key derived from a first seed that is of a first type and generating a second encrypted portion using a second key derived from a second seed that is of a second type. In some embodiments, the server classifies the first portion in a first category (e.g., a prioritized category) and the second portion in a second category (e.g., a non-prioritized category). During a breach response, the server repairs the encrypted media content item by re-encrypting portions in the first category, e.g., re-encrypting the first encrypted portion using a replacement key derived from a replacement seed that is of the first type, and updating encryption metadata.

  • Patent number: 11657352
    Abstract: A multiplier is utilized to quantify a cybersecurity risk level of a portfolio of entities (e.g., companies) and enable actions to mitigate that quantified risk. In doing so, features or attributes of one or more companies in a portfolio are compared to features or attributes of one or more companies that experienced an adverse cybersecurity event (e.g. a data breach). Further, a degree of dependency, such as a matrix of a number of shared vendors and the proximity of those vendors to the companies, can be measured between (1) portfolio companies and one or more companies that experienced a cybersecurity event, and/or (2) the portfolio companies themselves to better quantify the risk. That is, to more meaningfully analyze a cybersecurity event that occurred at one or more companies and better predict the likelihood of an occurrence at portfolio companies, embodiments can determine an n-degree interdependency between companies.

  • Patent number: 11630903
    Abstract: In an embodiment, a system is provided in which the private key is managed in hardware and is not visible to software. The system may provide hardware support for public key generation, digital signature generation, encryption/decryption, and large random prime number generation without revealing the private key to software. The private key may thus be more secure than software-based versions. In an embodiment, the private key and the hardware that has access to the private key may be integrated onto the same semiconductor substrate as an integrated circuit (e.g. a system on a chip (SOC)). The private key may not be available outside of the integrated circuit, and thus a nefarious third party faces high hurdles in attempting to obtain the private key.

  • Patent number: 11627117
    Abstract: An encrypted search query may be received from a requesting client system at a secure enclave of a processing device. The encrypted search query may be decrypted to form a decrypted search query. One or more index entries of a metadata index that correspond to the decrypted search query may be identified, such that each identified index entry is associated with a content reference that identifies a content item located outside the secure enclave. The index entries that correspond to the decrypted search query may include one or more index entries having one or more associated index metadata items that correspond to the decrypted search query. One or more secure search results may be generated, such that each secure search result corresponds to one of the index entries and comprises the content reference associated with the corresponding index entry. The secure search results may be sent to the requesting client system.

  • Patent number: 11627141
    Abstract: A system includes a communication module that receives a request to post content to an event gallery associated with an event. The request in turn includes geo-location data for a device sending the content, and identification data identifying the device or a user of the device. The system further has an event gallery module to perform a first authorization operation that includes determining that the geo-location data corresponds to a geo-location fence associated with an event. The event gallery module also performs a second authorization operation that includes using the identification data to verify an attribute of the user. Finally, based on the first and second authorization operations, the event gallery module may selectively authorize the device to post the content to the event gallery.
