  • Patent number: 9998420
    Abstract: Live events attendance smart transportation and planning. A social media profile and a social media friends list corresponding to the user is retrieved by the event service. The event service generates and transmits an event recommendation list to the user. The event service receives the ticket confirmation of the user obtaining a ticket to an event and receives a user transportation preference to attend the event. The event service retrieves a transportation preference for a friend from the social media friends list who obtained the admissions ticket to the event and generates a transportation recommendation to the event for the user and the friend from the social media friends list based on each of their transportation preferences for the event. The event service transmits the transportation recommendation to the user and the friend from the social media friends list.

  • Publication number: 20170337351
    Abstract: An encryption scheme is provided in which subset-difference lists are generated by blacklisting subsets corresponding to compromised devices and splitting subset difference lists corresponding to the blacklisted subsets into multiple subset difference lists. In some embodiments, a subset-difference tree is generated. The subset-difference tree includes a plurality of subsets. The subset-difference tree covers a plurality of nodes. Each of the plurality of subsets has an apex node among the plurality of nodes. At least one blacklisted node of the plurality of nodes is determined. A first subset among the plurality of subsets is identified that covers the at least one blacklisted node. A plurality of substitute subsets is determined. Each of the plurality of substitute subsets overlaps the first subset and does not cover the at least one blacklisted node. The plurality of substitute subsets are substituted for the first subset.

  • Patent number: 9817899
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present invention relate to searching for secret data through an untrusted searcher without exposing the secret data. In one embodiment, a method of and computer program product for searching for secret data through an untrusted searcher is provided. A secret value is read from a storage medium. The secret value is divided into a plurality of portions. Each of the plurality of portions is ranked. A subset of the secret value is determined from the ranking of the plurality of portions. A search string is constructed from the subset. The search string is transmitted to a searcher via a network. Search results are received from the searcher via the network.

  • Patent number: 9147178
    Abstract: A visual media de-identification system is described. The system includes an image merger and a de-identifying engine. The image merger is configured to merge a sequence of images from a set of visual media data into an averaged image. The de-identifying engine is configured to: bound portions of the averaged image that are determined to be relatively fixed, wherein each bounded portion is identified by a corresponding position in the averaged image; generate a template comprising the bounded portions and the corresponding position for each bounded portion in the averaged image; and de-identify the sequence of images by obfuscating content in the bounded portions.
