  • Patent number: 11455349
    Abstract: Described herein are methods, systems, and software to handle verification information in a content node. In one example, a method of operating a content node includes receiving a secure content request from an end user device and determining the availability of verification information stored on the content node to service the secure content request. The method further provides, if the verification information is available, verifying the end user device based on the verification information. The method also includes, if the verification information is unavailable, querying an origin server to verify the end user device.

  • Patent number: 11451374
    Abstract: A first device nonce and a first Hash based Message Authentication Code (HMAC) of the first device nonce using an old password as a key is received. The received first HMAC is compared to a computed second HMAC of the received first device nonce using a stored old password as the key for a match. In response to the match, a third HMAC of a second device nonce using the stored old password as the key is computed. A change password acknowledgement message is sent to the first device that comprises the second device nonce and the third HMAC. A final secret is computed using a second device secret and the first device nonce. A new password using a key derivation function that uses the old password and the final secret is computed. Thus, a new password is generated without sending the password over a network.

  • Patent number: 11424926
    Abstract: The present disclosure is generally directed to systems and methods for providing privacy to a user of a user device that is used for interacting with a networked software platform. A server computer coupled to the user device receives a hashed device ID of the device and generates a unique user ID in the form of a unique number. The user ID can be used by the server and other entities to gather information related to the activities of the user with respect to the networked software platform, which can be, for example, a video game platform, a social media platform, or a health-related diagnostic tool. The identity of the user remains anonymous during the information gathering procedures because neither the device ID nor the identity of the user is transmitted over the network when the user is participating in activities of the networked software platform.

  • Patent number: 11418343
    Abstract: Techniques are described for enabling resources within a cloud computing system to interact with each other. In certain embodiments, a token renewal mechanism is provided for extending the duration in which a first resource can access another resource. The token renewal mechanism can involve the first resource periodically causing a new credential to be generated for itself and then communicating the new credential to an identity and access management (IAM) system. The new credential may be generated for compliance with a credential rotation policy specifying that credentials should be changed after a certain period of time. The IAM system may associate a digital access token with the new credential so that for subsequent requests, the IAM system will only recognize the resource principal based upon the new credential. The digital token can be invalidated if a new credential is not changed within the specified period of time.

  • Patent number: 11399282
    Abstract: Technologies directed to a secured peer-to-peer cloud-assisted authentication exchange protocol are described. A first wireless device receives a first request including information identifying a second wireless device. The first wireless device determines that the information matches second information. The first wireless device activates a virtual access point (VAP) with a modified service set identifier (SSID) having a group identifier appended to a first SSID. The first wireless device authenticates the second wireless device to the VAP. The first wireless device sends credentials and a second SSID to the second wireless device. The second SSID corresponds to a second access point (AP). The first wireless device receives a second request from the second wireless device to connect to the second AP. The first wireless device authenticates the second wireless device with the second AP. The first wireless device deactivates the VAP after expiration of an amount of time.

  • Patent number: 11395143
    Abstract: This application discloses a network access method and apparatus, and a network device. The network access method is performed by an access gateway, includes: receiving a PPPoE message or a IPoE message sent by a user terminal, obtaining access information included in the PPPoE message or the IPoE message; encapsulating the access information into an NAS message or an EAP message; then, sending the NAS message or the EAP message to a control plane function entity CP; receiving network interface information sent by the CP; and sending the network interface information to the user terminal, so that the user terminal accesses a network. As can be learned from this solution, the user terminal is not limited by a protocol stack when accessing the network. Therefore, full services can be provided by deploying only one core network. This not only saves a resource but also facilitates network maintenance.

  • Patent number: 11374967
    Abstract: A system and method for detecting replay attacks on secure data are disclosed. A system on a chip (SOC) includes a security processor. Blocks of data corresponding to sensitive information are stored in off-chip memory. The security processor uses an integrity data structure, such as an integrity tree, for the blocks. The intermediate nodes of the integrity tree use nonces which have been generated independent of any value within a corresponding block. By using only the nonces to generate tags in the root at the top layer stored in on-chip memory and the nodes of the intermediate layers stored in off-chip memory, an amount of storage used is reduced for supporting the integrity tree. When the security processor detects events which create access requests for one or more blocks, the security processor uses the integrity tree to verify a replay attack has not occurred and corrupted data.

  • Patent number: 11366893
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and non-transitory computer-readable media can receive a notification of a user request to securely process a first set of data. A time estimate is calculated, wherein the time estimate is indicative of an expected amount of time for a secure data processing application to process the first set of data. An actual utilization time required for a first instance of the secure data processing application to process the first set of data is measured. A determination is made as to whether the secure data processing application may be compromised based on a comparison of the time estimate and the actual utilization time. In various embodiments, a re-cryptor process is used to change the cryptographic keys accessed by the secure data processing application. In various embodiments, a re-credentialer is used to change the database access credentials the secure data processing application used to access the encrypted data.
