  • Patent number: 11075762
    Abstract: The present document relates to transcoding of metadata, and in particular to a method and system for transcoding metadata with reduced computational complexity. A transcoder configured to transcode an inbound bitstream comprising an inbound content frame and an associated inbound metadata frame into an outbound bitstream comprising an outbound content frame and an associated outbound metadata frame is described. The inbound content frame is indicative of a signal encoded according to a first codec system and the outbound content frame is indicative of the signal encoded according to a second codec system. The transcoder is configured to identify an inbound block of metadata from the inbound metadata frame, the inbound block of metadata associated with an inbound descriptor indicative of one or more properties of metadata comprised within the inbound block of metadata, and to generate the outbound metadata frame from the inbound metadata frame based on the inbound descriptor.

  • Patent number: 11032249
    Abstract: A server in a captive portal accepts a connection from a user device to the IP address of the server and receives a HTTP or HTTPS request over the connection. The connection may be a result of the user device being previously determined to be not logged in, and consequently provided the IP address of the server as a DNS resolved IP address, the user device thereafter caching the IP address of the server. The server responds with requested content if the target host of the request is a local host. If the target host is a remote destination, the server queries a login database to determine whether the user device is logged in. The server acts as a transparent proxy between the user device and the remote destination if the user device is logged in, else the server sends alternate content to the user device over the connection.

  • Patent number: 11025665
    Abstract: Malicious activity data is obtained, that is indicative of attempted attacks on a computing system. Clusters of targets are identified and it is determined whether the malicious activity preferentially targets one cluster of targets over other. Also, low prevalence attacks are identified and it is determined whether a low prevalence attack has a high concentration in one or more of the target clusters. If the malicious activity either preferentially targets a cluster, or a low prevalence attack has a high concentration in a cluster, then the attack is identified as a targeted attack, so that remediation steps can be taken.

  • Patent number: 10986135
    Abstract: A security management system may be remotely deployed (e.g., using a cloud-based architecture) to add security to an enterprise network. For example, the security management system may scan assets within the enterprise network for vulnerabilities and may receive data from these scans. The security management system may also receive data from other sources, and, as a result, the system may handle data having many different formats and attributes. When the security management system tries to associate data to assets, there may not be a globally unique identifier that is applicable for all received data. Provided in the present disclosure are exemplary techniques for tracking assets across a network using an asset correlation engine that can flexibly correlate data with assets based on attribute information.

  • Patent number: 10972266
    Abstract: Techniques manage an encryption key in a storage system. The techniques involve: transmitting an encryption key request from a storage management component to a key management service component; obtaining, via the key management service component, an encryption key encrypted by the key management service component based on the encryption key request; providing the obtained encrypted encryption key to the storage management component; maintaining, in the storage management component, correspondence between the encrypted encryption key and a storage device; and registering, according to the correspondence, the encrypted encryption key corresponding to the storage device to an encryption hardware unit, such that the encryption hardware unit can decrypt the encrypted encryption key to obtain the encryption key corresponding to the storage device. Effective management of the encryption key is thus realized.

  • Patent number: 10951649
    Abstract: A method of detecting patterns in network traffic is provided. The method includes receiving a plurality of packets of network traffic, each packet having a payload populated with payload data and selecting payload lengths that occurred most frequently. For each of the selected payload lengths, a pattern template is generated using characters per position of the payload that satisfy a frequency criterion. A bit encoding scheme is assigned for each of the selected payload lengths and its associated pattern template. Each packet of the plurality of packets that has a payload length equal to any of the selected payload lengths and payload content that matches a pattern template generated for the payload is encoded into a single value. The single value uses the bit encoding scheme for the payload length and the pattern template matched.

  • Patent number: 10949554
    Abstract: A security method that includes determining a sensitivity value for content to be projected onto a holographic surface, and determining identity for people that are within visual range of the holographic surface. The method further includes determining which of the people is authorized to view the content being projected onto the holographic surface according to the sensitivity level. The holographic surface is shaped to provide a reshaped holographic surface that obstructs people that are not authorized to view the sensitivity level of the content. The content is then projected onto the reshaped holographic surface within vision of people authorized to view the sensitivity level of the content.
