  • Patent number: 11907393
    Abstract: The technology disclosed includes a system to efficiently classify sensitivity of document generated by and downloaded from cloud-based provider services. The system monitors network traffic at a document-generation initiating endpoint and receives a web page identifying the document generated. The system parses the network traffic that selects the document for download, based on the user selecting a link, and intercepts a document handle in an API parameter string used to download the document. The system interprets the document handle to analyze sensitivity of the document to assign a sensitive classification to the document. The sensitivity classification is encoded into the document header metadata. The encoded sensitivity classification can be used to enhance security, for example, preventing data exfiltration.

  • Patent number: 11853424
    Abstract: A microprocessor for mitigating side channel attacks includes a memory subsystem that receives a load operation that specifies a load address. The memory subsystem includes a virtually-indexed, virtually-tagged data cache memory (VIVTDCM) comprising entries that hold translation information. The memory subsystem also includes a data translation lookaside buffer (DTLB) comprising entries that hold physical address translations and translation information. The processor performs speculative execution of instructions and executes instructions out of program order. The memory system allows non-inclusion with respect to translation information between the VIVTDCM and the DTLB such that, for instances in time, translation information associated with the load address is present in the VIVTDCM and absent in the DTLB.

  • Patent number: 11778460
    Abstract: A secure element of a mobile device receives a first authentication token, which may have an encrypted portion and a non-encrypted portion, from a network gateway device to which the mobile device is connected. The secure element determines whether the first authentication token is valid based on a sequence number included in the first authentication token. If the secure element determines that the first authentication token is valid, the secure element generates a second authentication token that indicates a result of an authentication operation performed by the secure element. The second authentication token is sent to the network gateway device. The secure element derives a pre-shared key using a key derivation function, where the pre-shared key is usable to establish a secure communication channel with the network gateway device.

  • Patent number: 11777933
    Abstract: Systems, methods, articles of manufacture for authentication of payment cards. A server may assign, in a database, an expected card identifier to a contactless card, the contactless card associated with an account. The server may receive, from a client device, a request comprising a uniform resource locator (URL), a parameter of the URL comprising a card identifier, wherein the URL is transmitted by the contactless card to the client device. The server may extract the card identifier from the URL and compare the extracted card identifier to the expected card identifier in the database. The server may determine, based on the comparison, that the extracted card identifier matches the expected card identifier. The server may authenticate the request based on the extracted card identifier matching the expected card identifier, and transmit, to the client device, an indication specifying that the request was authenticated.

  • Patent number: 11762980
    Abstract: Various methods and systems are provided for autonomous orchestration of secrets renewal and distribution. A secrets management service (“SMS”) can be utilized to store, renew and distribute secrets in a distributed computing environment. The secrets are initially deployed, after which, SMS can automatically renew the secrets according to a specified rollover policy, and polling agents can fetch updates from SMS. In various embodiments, SMS can autonomously rollover client certificates for authentication of users who access a security critical service, autonomously rollover storage account keys, track delivery of updated secrets to secrets recipients, deliver secrets using a secure blob, and/or facilitate autonomous rollover using secrets staging. In some embodiments, a service is pinned to the path where the service's secrets are stored. In this manner, secrets can be automatically renewed without any manual orchestration and/or the need to redeploy services.

  • Patent number: 11727137
    Abstract: Methods and systems are provided to efficiently update account profiles based on a predicted likelihood of use, including by ranking the account profiles according to the likelihood of use. The disclosed system can considerably improve the processing time to update account profiles with the most recent information available, including new access requests. An authentication platform receives a plurality of new access requests, including request data and account identifiers associated with account profiles. The request data is transmitted to a prediction engine that determines a ranking of the account identifiers based on a predicted likelihood of use during a next time interval. A profile batch scheduler retrieves a first set of access requests based on the ranking. The system updates a first set of account profiles based on the ranking, and stores the updated account profiles for use by the authentication platform.

  • Patent number: 11714887
    Abstract: A device includes two cameras, a front facing camera and a back facing camera. In response to a request to use one camera (e.g., the back facing camera) with particular functionality of an application, the application queries a system to verify whether the user is authenticated and authorized to use the camera with the particular functionality of the application. This authentication and authorization is performed based on an image of the user captured using another camera of the device (e.g., the front facing camera). Depending on whether the user is authenticated and authorized to use the camera with the particular functionality of the application, the particular functionality is performed using the camera, secondary (e.g., lesser) functionality is performed using the camera, or no functionality is performed using the camera.
