  • Patent number: 11829509
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method includes creating an account including an account value on an online service. The account value is modified periodically to activate a plurality of account values respectively associated with a plurality of times at which the plurality of account values were respectively activated on the account. A network-accessible data repository is scanned to detect a first value of the plurality of account values, the first value associated with a first time of the plurality of times at which the first value was activated. Responsive to detecting the first value a notification is provided indicating a data leak from the online service including an indication of when the data leak occurred based on the first time at which the first value was activated on the account and a second time at which a second value was activated on the account to replace the first value.

  • Patent number: 11816243
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and non-transitory computer-readable media can generate a natural language model that provides user-entity differential privacy. For example, in one or more embodiments, a system samples sensitive data points from a natural language dataset. Using the sampled sensitive data points, the system determines gradient values corresponding to the natural language model. Further, the system generates noise for the natural language model. The system generates parameters for the natural language model using the gradient values and the noise, facilitating simultaneous protection of the users and sensitive entities associated with the natural language dataset. In some implementations, the system generates the natural language model through an iterative process (e.g., by iteratively modifying the parameters).

  • Patent number: 11816242
    Abstract: In some implementations, a device may train the model to generate embeddings for log files associated with an application, and to enable the model to generate embeddings for sensitive information included in a set of training log files. The device may receive a log file associated with the application. The device may generate a compressed log file including a set of embedding vectors associated with records included in the log file, where a record that includes sensitive information is associated with one or more embedding vectors for the sensitive information and one or more embedding vectors for other information included in the record. The device may store the compressed log file including the set of embedding vectors where a size of the compressed file is less than a size of the log file, and the embedding vectors obfuscate the records included in the log file.

  • Patent number: 11799638
    Abstract: There are provided systems and methods for shared cryptogram generation during multi-party digital token processing. A service provider, such as an electronic transaction processor for digital transactions, may require tokenized data in order to protect sensitive or secure data, such as payment card data during electronic transaction processing. In this regard, the service provider may tokenize the data, which may require a cryptogram for validation of a corresponding digital token. The cryptogram may be generated based on input from multiple participants to the transaction, where a length of the cryptogram may be determined based on a risk score for the transaction. Each transaction participant may be assigned one or more slots or values in the cryptogram to provide based on the risk score and other rules for cryptogram generation. Each participant may provide corresponding portions, where the service provider may generate and backwards update the participants of the cryptogram.

  • Patent number: 11650174
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method and system for estimating layers on electrodes in an annular, circular symmetric, multiphase pipe flow the pipe including a set of electrodes being evenly distributed along the inner pipe circumference. The method comprises the steps of measuring the impedance between each electrode and the other electrodes and obtaining a set of impedance values, the impedance values being categorized depending on the distance between the measuring electrodes, the impedance categories thus representing layers ranging from close to the pipe wall to the pipe center. The method also includes a precomputed model of a range of expected impedance values in the annular, circular symmetric fluid flow based on known fluid properties.

  • Patent number: 11496498
    Abstract: Examples of the present disclosure describe systems and methods for identifying anomalous network behavior. In aspects, a network event may be observed network sensors. One or more characteristics may be extracted from the network event and used to construct an evidence vector. The evidence vector may be compared to a mapping of previously-identified events and/or event characteristics. The mapping may be represented as one or more clusters of expected behaviors and anomalous behaviors. The mapping may be modeled using analytic models for direction detection and magnitude detection. One or more centroids may be identified for each of the clusters. A “best fit” may be determined and scored for each of the analytic models. The scores may be fused into single binocular score and used to determine whether the evidence vector is likely to represent an anomaly.

  • Patent number: 11483708
    Abstract: A controller device within a home network (or any suitable network) can be configured to manage network access tokens for various accessory devices within the home network. These network access tokens can be used by the accessory devices to access the home network without needing the network owner's network password. The network access tokens can be revocable and/or for a limited time. The controller device can generate the network access tokens, and can provide them to the accessory devices (or other user devices) as well as to an access device on the home network. Once the access device is provisioned with the accessory device's network access token, the router can control whether the accessory device is to be granted access to the home network and for how long.

  • Patent number: 11470081
    Abstract: A system for wearable authentication and management is disclosed. In particular, the system may include identifying and authenticating a user through biometric data or movement signatures specific to the wearer of a wearable device. Once the user and wearable device are authenticated, the system may activate and provision connectivity services for the wearable device, associate the device with a device ecosystem of the user, and push predefined settings to the wearable device. Additionally, the system may deliver communications that are transmitted to other devices in the device ecosystem to the wearable device while the wearable device is worn by the user. If the user no longer wears the wearable device or the wearable device is not utilized for a period of time, the system may deactivate the connectivity services for the wearable device and remove any settings pushed to the wearable device.
