  • Publication number: 20220114156
    Abstract: The disclosure relates to, among other things, systems and methods for mitigating the risks of errors, benign or otherwise, occurring within trusted ledgers and/or for validating the integrity of information provided by operators of trusted ledgers. Consistent with embodiments disclosed herein, trusted agents, which may comprise proxy agents and/or test agents, may be employed to examine ledgers and/or derivatives, which may be meshed with other ledgers, to ensure the integrity of information provided by ledger operators. Ledger meshing techniques are described to link ledgers in a manner that improves the ability to verify ledger entries and/or recover from data faults. Further embodiments provide for tagging processes may be performed to give semantic meaning to hashes included in trusted ledgers.

  • Publication number: 20210019851
    Abstract: Systems and methods are described, and an example system includes, in association with an intermediate, a server and a validation module on the server. The server receives a communication from a mobile device, carrying a customs information. The validation module performs a validation on the customs information and in association with an affirmative validation outcome stores the customs information as a validated information. Upon an occurrence, optionally an event and optionally a time, the validation module sends the validated information to an authorization authority server for vetting. The intermediate server receives an electronic receipt from the authorization authority server, the receipt including an indication of a result of the vetting, and communicates, via the network, the receipt to the mobile device.

  • Patent number: 10832366
    Abstract: Mobile collection and vetting of user supplied information is described. The systems, techniques, devices, methods, and approaches described herein can be used to obtain, validate, and vet information, such as customs information, in a mobile environment. In embodiments, methods comprise receiving information input via a mobile device. The information is encapsulated by an intermediate to escort the information through a firewall to the database. In response to vetting the information to determine if it meets one or more criteria, the method involves creating a record associated with a unique identifier, information that bio-identifies a user, or an indication of a determination that results from the vetting. In this embodiment, the method includes generating an electronic receipt for communication to the mobile device, the electronic receipt including the unique identifier.

  • Patent number: 10061847
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates generally to systems and methods for the secure management of electronic information relating to a user. In certain embodiments, systems and methods disclosed herein may allow for personal information related to a user to be used in connection with information targeting systems and methods configured to match and/or target information for delivery to a user based on the user's interests. In some embodiments, personal information relating to a user may be stored and/or managed in a personal ontology graph or other data structure including, among other things, various inferred interests of the user derived from available personal information.

  • Publication number: 20170163645
    Abstract: Systems and methods are described for performing policy-managed, peer-to-peer service orchestration in a manner that supports the formation of self-organizing service networks that enable rich media experiences. In one embodiment, services are distributed across peer-to-peer communicating nodes, and each node provides message routing and orchestration using a message pump and workflow collator. Distributed policy management of service interfaces helps to provide trust and security, supporting commercial exchange of value. Peer-to-peer messaging and workflow collation allow services to be dynamically created from a heterogeneous set of primitive services. The shared resources are services of many different types, using different service interface bindings beyond those typically supported in a web service deployments built on UDDI, SOAP, and WSDL.
