  • Patent number: 10943026
    Abstract: Access to sensitive information in a database can be restricted to improve security and enable efficient auditing. A security engine receives a request from a requesting entity to access data in the database and determines that the requested data includes sensitive information. In response to the requesting entity being authorized to access the data, the security engine retrieves the requested data from the database and modifies the retrieved data by modifying metadata of the retrieved data to include a tag indicating that the retrieved data includes sensitive information. The security engine provides the modified data to the requesting entity and modifies a data access log to identify each attempted access to the modified data. When sensitive data is requested, an interface can include an obscuring element, requiring a user to manually select the element to view the data, enabling the logging of the explicit access request by the user.

  • Patent number: 10819757
    Abstract: A system and method for communicating with a client application that can include establishing a client signaling communication channel with a first client application; receiving a communication request from the first client application through the client signaling communication channel, wherein the communication request contains at least an authentication token and a specified communication destination; verifying the authentication token; if the authentication token is verified, at the system bridge, establishing a signaling communication channel with the communication destination and a second media communication channel with the specified communication destination; at the system bridge, establishing a first media communication channel with the client application; and merging the first media communication channel with the second media communication channel.

  • Publication number: 20200244568
    Abstract: A system and method for regional routing of internet protocol based real-time communication that includes registering a set of client application endpoint routes, comprising registering at least a first client gateway route of a first endpoint in a first region; receiving a communication invitation of the first endpoint; processing a set of communication instructions associated with the communication invitation and identifying a set of communication resources and at least a second endpoint; querying the client application endpoint routes and identifying a client gateway route of the second endpoint; and dynamically directing signaling path and media path of the communication according to the regional availability of the communication resources, the client gateway route of the first endpoint, and client gateway instance route of the second endpoint.

  • Patent number: 9522594
    Abstract: A mis-fuel inhibitor (MFI) assembly is configured to prevent an improper fuel nozzle from dispensing fuel into a fuel tank. The assembly may include a main body having an MFI nozzle passage formed therethrough. The main body is configured to allow a proper fuel nozzle to pass through the MFI nozzle passage, and prevent the improper fuel nozzle from passing therethrough. The assembly may also include at least one securing member configured to connect to the main body within a fuel fill line. The securing member(s) is configured to securely retain the main body within the fuel fill line.

  • Patent number: 9380418
    Abstract: A mobile client device or the like stores a library of potential points of interest that are pre-transferred to the mobile device by the system. The system identifies a normal commerce range and transfers information relating to potential points of interest based on the normal commerce range of the user. By accessing the library of points of interest stored on the mobile client device, network roundtrips between the device and server can be minimized, thereby enhancing performance characteristics of the mobile client device.
