  • Publication number: 20120296914
    Abstract: Techniques are provided for capturing events and activities that occur during a conference, generating metadata related to the events, and correlating the metadata with specific points in time, within the conference, at which the corresponding events occurred. The resulting temporally-correlated event metadata may be stored as part of the conference recording, or separate from the conference recording. Once the temporally-correlated event metadata has been stored for a conference, the conference may be indexed based on the metadata. The index may then be used to not only to locate a conference that satisfies specified search criteria, but to identify the points or snippets, within the conference, that correspond to the search criteria.

  • Patent number: 8245271
    Abstract: Apparatus, methods, and computer program products are disclosed that maintain an association graph made up of association tuples. Each of the association tuples belongs to an access-control-policy scope that imposes an access control policy. On receipt of a client reference and a supplier reference a scope-defining entity is identified from the client reference. The scope-defining entity has an explicit access control policy. An effective supplier reference is retrieved from a set of the association tuples matching the scope-defining entity and is presented.

  • Publication number: 20120023129
    Abstract: Embodiments of the invention provide systems and methods for a collaboration environment in which a number of different workspaces can use the same, reusable content. According to one embodiment, a method of providing collaboration using reusable content can comprise identifying a content item to be included in a first workspace of a plurality of workspaces of a collaboration environment. A first proxy representing the identified content item can be created. The first proxy can have a unique identifier within the first workspace. A mapping table record can be created for the first proxy that links the first proxy to the content item. Additionally, a cross-reference table record can be created for the first proxy. The cross-reference record can identify a relationship of the first proxy to another content item in the first workspace.

  • Patent number: 7934249
    Abstract: Apparatus, methods, and computer program products are disclosed that determine Rights to an entity. The disclosed technology maintains data structures representing a set of entities. These entities include protected-entities and sensitivity-entities. Each of the sensitivity-entities is associated with a respective sensitivity access-control-list. The sensitivity-entities include a first sensitivity-entity that is associated with a first sensitivity-access-control-list. A first protected-entity being one of one or more of the protected-entities associated with the first sensitivity-entity. The technology evaluates Rights to the first protected-entity with respect to the first sensitivity-access-control-list and enables access to the first protected-entity responsive to the Rights evaluation and presents the first protected-entity when access is enabled.

  • Patent number: 7797289
    Abstract: One embodiment of the present invention provides an enterprise system that automatically executes a rule associated with an event. During operation, the system receives an event object at the enterprise system. Next, the system creates an intermediate event object based on the event object, wherein the intermediate object is an invocation context for the rule. The system also filters a set of rules with the intermediate event object to obtain a subset of rules. The system then selects a rule that is associated with the event from the subset of rules. Finally, the system executes the rule.

  • Publication number: 20090158425
    Abstract: Apparatus, methods, and computer program products are disclosed that determine an actor context of an actor as well as an access environment for an attempted operation responsive to the actor context and a necessary condition. The method also evaluates whether the access environment satisfies the necessary condition and activates a principal responsive to the evaluation and authenticates the actor against the principal.
