  • Patent number: 11972026
    Abstract: Program products, methods, and systems for simulating and/or preventing the dissemination of sensitive information over the internet are disclosed. Preventing dissemination of user-specific sensitive information over the internet may include analyzing content included in media posts, calculating a danger score for the media post, and determining if the calculated danger score exceeds a danger score threshold. Where the calculated danger score does not exceed the threshold, the media post has no or a low risk of disseminating sensitive information over the internet. However, if the calculated danger score does exceed the threshold, the user is alerted that the media post may undesirably disseminate sensitive information. The danger score may represent a sensitive information exposure risk for the media post is based on a variety of factors and/or characteristics of the media post and/or the user creating and attempting to disseminate the media post.

  • Patent number: 11962575
    Abstract: A data transmission method includes a step in which a first device generates a first encrypted packet by encrypting a packet addressed to a second device with an associated first encryption key. A device to be a transmission destination of the first encrypted packet is determined. A second encrypted packet is generated by encrypting the first encrypted packet with an associated second encryption key, and the second encrypted packet is transmitted to the determined device. The method includes determining another device and executing the transmission step if the decrypted first encrypted packet is not addressed to the device itself in the determination regarding whether or not the decrypted first encrypted packet is addressed to the device itself and of further decrypting the first encrypted packet if the decrypted first encrypted packet is addressed to the device itself.

  • Patent number: 11956351
    Abstract: A first node of a network includes a quantum receiver, a classical transceiver, and an initial-key generator that cooperate with a second node of the network to receive an initial key via the quantum receiver. The first node includes a key-series generator that (i) decrypts, with the initial key, a first encrypted key of a series of encrypted keys to generate a first unencrypted key of a respective series of unencrypted keys and (ii) decrypts each subsequent encrypted key of the series of encrypted keys with a preceding unencrypted key of the series of unencrypted keys to generate a subsequent unencrypted key of the series of unencrypted keys. The first node includes one or both of a decryptor and an encryptor. The decryptor decrypts encrypted data using a last unencrypted key of the series of unencrypted keys. The encryptor encrypts unencrypted data using the last unencrypted key.

  • Patent number: 11949710
    Abstract: In general, one or more embodiments of the invention relates to systems and methods for detecting ransomware attacks earlier and closer to the time of attack. The ransomware attack can be detect by determining a change rate of data blocks between snapshots. The ransomware attack can also be detected by determining the pattern of changes in the blocks deviates from a normal pattern. By making these determinations, a quick identification of possible ransomware attacks can be made and other methods of mitigating the attack can be deployed when they are may still be useful to mitigate potential damage to a user's data.

  • Patent number: 11943366
    Abstract: An authentication system facilitates a transfer of enrollment in authentication services between client devices. The authentication system enrolls a client device in authentication services to enable the client device to be used for authenticating requests to access one or more services. As part of enrolling the client device, the authentication system receives authentication enrollment information for the client device that is associated with one or more authentication credentials securely stored on the client device (e.g., a multi-factor authentication (MFA) certificate). The authentication system facilitates one or more processes for transferring the enrollment from an enrolled client device to a non-enrolled client device that limit the number and complexity of actions performed by the user.

  • Patent number: 11930356
    Abstract: This document describes a three-party cryptographic handshake protocol in a wireless network in which a sighter receives, from a beacon, a packet including an exponentiation of a random value and a proxy value and generates an end-to-end encrypted ephemeral identifier (E2EE-EID) from the exponentiation of the random value and the proxy value. The sighter generates a message for an owner, selects a private key, and computes an exchanged key using the private key and the E2EE-EID. The sighter extracts a common symmetric key from the exchanged key, encrypts the message using the common symmetric key, and transmits the encrypted message to the owner.
