  • Patent number: 11954229
    Abstract: A method for identity resolution and data enrichment is performed by at least one hardware processor and includes detecting at an account of a data provider, a shared data object that is shared by an account of a data consumer with the account of the data provider. An application executing at the account of the data consumer is enabled for an identity resolution process based on the detecting of the shared data object. A request for source data received from the application is detected at the account of the data provider. The source data is managed by the account of the data provider. The source data is communicated to the application executing at the account of the data consumer, based on a verification that the application is enabled for the identity resolution process. The identity resolution process is performed at the account of the data consumer using the source data.

  • Patent number: 11956255
    Abstract: Embodiments of a cyberattack monitoring system are disclosed to identify successful attacks on a service based on benign activities of the attacker performed after the initial attack attempt. In embodiments, the system identifies the initial attack by matching client actions to known attack patterns. Clients observed with attempted attacks are remembered as suspected attackers. The system will then monitor subsequent actions of suspected attackers for signs that the initial attack attempt was successful. In embodiments, a successful attack is recognized when the system observes one or more subsequent benign actions by the suspected attacker. In embodiments, the presence of follow-on benign actions is used as a filter to filter out unsuccessful attacks and false positives detected by the system. The filtering enables the system to better focus system resources and human attention on a small set of client activities that are likely successful attacks.

  • Patent number: 11954192
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and apparatuses are described herein for improving computer authentication processes using vocal confidence processing. A request for access to an account may be received. An authentication question may be provided to a user. Voice data indicating one or more vocal utterances by the user in response to the authentication question may be received. The voice data may be processed, and a first confidence score that indicates a degree of confidence of the user when answering the authentication question may be determined. An overall confidence score may be modified based on the first confidence score. Based on determining that the overall confidence score satisfies a threshold, data preventing the authentication question from being used in future authentication processes may be stored. The data may be removed when a time period expires.

  • Patent number: 11943243
    Abstract: In an anomaly detection method that determines whether each frame in observation data constituted by a collection of frames sent and received over a communication network system is anomalous, a difference between a data distribution of a feature amount extracted from the frame in the observation data and a data distribution for a collection of frames sent and received over the communication network system, obtained at a different timing from the observation data, is calculated. A frame having a feature amount for which the difference is predetermined value or higher is determined to be an anomalous frame. An anomaly contribution level of feature amounts extracted from the frame determined to be an anomalous frame is calculated, and an anomalous payload part, which is at least one part of the payload corresponding to the feature amount for which the anomaly contribution level is at least the predetermined value, is output.

  • Patent number: 11941148
    Abstract: The present system relates a platform for addressing the optimal privacy-accuracy trade-off in the revelation of a user's valuable information to a third party. Specifically, the present system formalizes the privacy-accuracy trade-off in a precise mathematical framework, wherein mathematical formalization captures user's privacy preference with a single parameter. The system possesses a revelation method of user data that is optimal, in the sense of abiding by user's privacy preference while providing the most accurate description to third party subject to the aforementioned privacy preference constraint.

  • Patent number: 11943233
    Abstract: An electronic control unit is connected to a network in an in-vehicle network system. The electronic control unit includes a first control circuit and a second control circuit. The first control circuit is connected to the network via the second control circuit. The second control circuit performs a first determination process on a frame to determine conformity of the frame with a first rule. Upon determining that the frame conforms to the first rule, the second control circuit transmits the frame to the first control circuit. The first control circuit performs a second determination process on the frame to determine conformity of the frame with a second rule. The second rule is different from the first rule.
