  • Patent number: 11650907
    Abstract: Abstract interpretation based static analysis tools use relational/non-relational abstract domains to verify program properties. Precision and scalability of analysis vary basis usage of abstract domains. K-limited path-sensitive interval domain is an abstract domain that was conventionally proposed for analysis on industry strength programs. The domain maintains variables' intervals along a configurable K subsets of paths at each program point, which implicitly provides co-relation among variables. When the number of paths at the join point exceeds K, set of paths are partitioned into K subsets, arbitrarily, which results in loss of precision required to verify program properties. To address the above problem, embodiments of the present disclosure provide selective merging of paths in such a way that the intervals computed help verifying more properties.

  • Patent number: 11645069
    Abstract: Concepts for synchronising and maintaining audited code and toolchain access in a modern software development pipeline are presented. In particular, by leveraging software bots (also known as software development bots) to monitor changes in a development team's preferred access control mechanism, such changes in the preferred state can be stored as preferred/target configuration in a source controlled repository. Further, the same (or other) software bots may be used to monitor for configuration drift between the source-controlled system and the preferred/target configuration stored in the repository and eliminate drifts automatically if possible or alert interested parties about those drifts.

  • Patent number: 11636399
    Abstract: A first sample acquisition unit acquires a parameter sample from a prior distribution. A function execution unit acquires data from a distribution by supplying the sample to a function. A degree-of-similarity calculation unit calculates the degree of similarity between the data and correct data using a kernel function. A kernel mean construction unit constructs a kernel mean of a posterior distribution from the degree of similarity, the sample, and the kernel function. A second sample acquisition unit acquires a new parameter sample from the kernel mean and the kernel function. A sample evaluation unit determines whether the difference between new data obtained by supplying one sample selected from the new samples to the function and the correct data is less than a prescribed threshold value. When it is determined that the difference is less than the prescribed threshold value, the sample evaluation unit estimates the selected sample as a parameter.

  • Patent number: 11574075
    Abstract: A system for distributed computing allows researchers performing analysis on data having legal or policy restrictions on movement of the data to perform the analysis on data at multiple sites without exporting the restricted data from each site. A primary system determines which sites contain the data to be executed by a compute job and sends the compute job to the associated site. Resulting calculated data can be exported to a primary collecting and recording system. The system allows the rapid development of analysis code for the compute jobs that can be executed on a local data set then passed to the primary system for distributed machine learning on the multiple sites without any changes to the code of the compute job.

  • Patent number: 11568047
    Abstract: Techniques for determining and displaying error messages including a cause of an error generated because two types are not members of the same nest are disclosed. The system detects, at runtime, an instruction in a first type that attempts to access a private member of a second type. The system evaluates one or more nestmate criteria to determine whether the first type and the second type are within a same nest. A nest host corresponding to the nest specifies each nest member of the nest, and each nest member specifies an association with the nest. Responsive to determining that a particular nestmate criterion is not met, the system determines that the first type and the second type are not within the same nest and records or displays data identifying the particular nestmate criterion that has not been met, and throws an access error.

  • Patent number: 11550923
    Abstract: Certain example embodiments test an application for security vulnerabilities. Binary and/or source code representations are subjected to static testing. Static testing identifies potential security weaknesses in the application. For each potential security weakness, a corresponding dynamic test set, containing one or more test cases, is generated based on (i) the corresponding potential security weakness, and (ii) lookups to weakness, application context, and attack pattern databases. The weakness database includes different weakness types and descriptions thereof. The attack pattern database includes information about how to generate attacks for the different weakness types. An instance of the application running in a test runtime environment is dynamically tested using the dynamic test cases. The dynamic test results verify whether each potential security weakness is a real vulnerability. The dynamic test results include fewer false-positives than the raw static test results.
