  • Patent number: 8352535
    Abstract: A method and a system for information management and control is presented, based on modular and abstract description of the information. Identifiers are used to identify features of interest in the information and information use policies are assigned directly or indirectly on the basis of the identifiers, allowing for flexible and efficient policy management and enforcement, in that a policy can be defined with a direct relationship to the actual information content of digital data items. The information content can be of various kinds: e.g., textual documents, numerical spreadsheets, audio and video files, pictures and images, drawings etc. The system can provide protection against information policy breaches such as information misuse, unauthorized distribution and leakage, and for information tracking.

  • Patent number: 8315997
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method for document management includes extracting from an input document a set of terms, each term including a fixed number of words. Respective numbers of the terms that occur in each of a group of stored documents are counted, and a respective association rate is computed between the input document and each of at least some of the stored documents responsively to the respective numbers of the terms that were counted in the stored documents. One or more of the stored documents are identified as versions of the input document responsively to the association rate, and an identification of the stored documents that are versions of the input document is outputted.
