  • Patent number: 11451527
    Abstract: Embodiments described herein provide a system for improving a classifier by computing a statistic for the utility of sharing data with a second party. The system may encrypt a set of class labels based on a public key/private key pair to obtain a set of encrypted class labels. The system may send a public key and the set of encrypted class labels to a second computing device. The system may receive an encrypted value computed by the second computing device based on the public key. The system may decrypt the encrypted value based on a private key to obtain a decrypted value. The system may then send a pair of encrypted values computed based on the decrypted value to the second computing device. The system may subsequently receive an encrypted utility statistic from the second computing device, and decrypt the encrypted utility statistic to obtain a decrypted utility statistic.

  • Patent number: 11449800
    Abstract: Management of machine-learned data between machine-learning devices is facilitated by a processor(s) obtaining a machine-learned data set of a first device, with the machine-learned data set of the first device being categorized machine-learned information. The processor(s) determines one or more device hardware requirements to use the machine-learned data set, and based on receiving a request to provide the machine-learned data set to a second device, determines whether the second device meets the one or more device hardware requirements to use the machine-learned data set of the first device. Based on determining that the second device meets the one or more device hardware requirements, the processor(s) provides the machine-learned data set of the first device to the second device to provide the categorized machine-learned information of the first device to the second device for use by the second device.

  • Patent number: 11451555
    Abstract: Embodiments concern a dynamic authorization framework. Security Classification Process (SCP) is the process of classifying raw data, information extracted from raw data, content or code from security-value perspective. Security Achievability Determination Process (SADP) is a process based on a SV/SC that has been assigned, the RHE may determine the Security Requirements and how the security requirements may be achieved. During the Security Achievability Listing Process (SALP), the RHE uploads onto the Resource Listing Entity (RLE) the URI of the resource, the SAM associated with the resource and optionally a digital certificate associated with the resource. During the SAM Assessment Process (SAMAP) process, a Client evaluates the security mechanisms that must be carried out in order to meet the SAM that was provided as part of the Discovery Process (DP). Based on the SAM obtained from the RLE, the Client may initiate a Security Achievability Enabling Process (SAEP).

  • Patent number: 11444926
    Abstract: An efficient method of feature selection for regression models can be implemented in a privacy-preserving manner in a multi-party computation setting. In accordance with various embodiments, the method takes as input data a feature matrix, a dependent variable vector, and an external feature matrix from which a feature is to be selected for addition to a regression model. Some or all of the input data can include private data that can be secret shared during the method so as not to disclose the private data to other parties. Based on two heuristic assumptions, the method determines numerators and denominators for a t-statistics vector in multi-party computations and then calculates the t-statistics vector. In determining the numerators and denominators, the method can determine a baseline Hessian matrix and a vector of predictions. A feature represented in the external feature matrix is then selected based on the calculated t-statistics vector.

  • Patent number: 11405183
    Abstract: Methods and systems are described for using cache objects to store events for adding corresponding objects in a blockchain. In one implementation, a first cache object is identified. The cache object stores events published responsive to updates, insertions, or deletions of records in a database object. An identifier for the cache object is based on a time window with which the cache object is associated, and an identifier for the database object. Events are retrieved from a cache that includes the cache object, based on the identifier for the cache object. The events were stored in the cache object during the time window. A block is added to a blockchain. The block's payload includes objects corresponding to a subset of the events.

  • Patent number: 11336667
    Abstract: Users often have multiple resource (e.g., devices, accounts, authorizations, permissions, etc.) that utilize or leverage a credential that may become compromised. A stolen mobile device may allow unauthorized access to the device to make and receive calls and potentially expose other resources (e.g., emails, text messages, accounts, etc.). Maintaining all these accounts is cumbersome and error prone. Having a ledger indicating resources that are blocked is provided. Copies of the ledger are maintained by other entities and updates exchanged therebetween. As a result, parties can be quickly notified when a resource should be blocked, or unblocked, if blocking is no longer warranted.
