  • Patent number: 10749884
    Abstract: Techniques for ascertaining legitimacy of communications received during a digital interaction with a client device. The techniques include: receiving a communication; identifying from the communication a first secured token; processing the first secured token by: obtaining, from the first secured token, information indicating a state of the digital interaction; and using the information indicating the state to determine whether the communication is from the client device; and when it is determined that the communication is from the client device, causing at least one action responsive to the communication to be performed; updating the information indicating the state of the digital interaction to obtain updated information indicating the state of the digital interaction; and providing a second secured token to the client device for use in a subsequent communication during the digital interaction, the second secured token comprising the updated information indicating the state of the digital interaction.

  • Patent number: 10735966
    Abstract: Systems and methods for initiating enrollment of a local device in a cloud environment using a separate device are presented. In an example embodiment, a device identifier for the local device is received from the local device by a separate device that is trusted by a cloud computing system. The separate device causes the displaying of an indicator for the local device. In response to receiving an activation of the indicator for the local device, the separate device issues a request to the cloud computing system to receive credential information enabling the local device to enroll with the cloud computing system. The separate device receives the credential information from the cloud computing system and transmits the credential information to the local device.

  • Patent number: 10735448
    Abstract: A security system detects anomalous activity in a network. The system logs user activity, which can include ports used, compares users to find similar users, sorts similar users into cohorts, and compares new user activity to logged behavior of the cohort. The comparison can include a divergence calculation. Origins of user activity can also be used to determine anomalous network activity. The hostname, username, IP address, and timestamp can be used to calculate aggregate scores and convoluted scores.

  • Patent number: 10721065
    Abstract: Systems and methods for active state synchronization between distributed ledger technology (DLT) platforms are provided. A system may store an origin blockchain compliant with an origin DLT. The system may further store a target blockchain compliant with a target DLT. The target DLT may be different from the origin DLT. The system may include a DLT object synchronizer with access to the origin blockchain and the target blockchain. The DLT object synchronizer may receive, from an exchange node, a request to synchronize an origin instance of a DLT object between the origin blockchain and the target blockchain. The DLT object synchronizer may select a target instance of the DLT object on the target blockchain. The DLT object synchronizer may format origin data from the origin instance for compliance with the target DLT.

  • Patent number: 10659219
    Abstract: Systems and methods as described herein may include creating and monitoring workflows in a blockchain network. A workflow may be implemented by using a smart contract or the steps in the workflow may be recorded in a distributed ledger in a blockchain network. Completion of a workflow step may be verified by identifying a blockchain transaction executed by the workflow step performer assigned to the workflow step. The blockchain transaction is associated with encryption keys of the workflow step performer assigned to the workflow step. The completion of the execution of a workflow may be verified by determining whether the status of the last workflow step is complete, and identifying a blockchain transaction associated with encryption keys of the workflow step performer assigned to the last workflow step.
