  • Patent number: 10255440
    Abstract: This disclosure relates to systems and methods for enabling the use of secret digital or electronic information without exposing the sensitive information to unsecured applications. In certain embodiments, the methods may include invoking, by a client application executing in an open processing domain, a secure abstraction layer configured to interface with secret data protected by a secure processing domain. Secure operations may be securely performed on the secret data by the secure abstraction layer in the secure processing domain based on an invocation from a client application running in the open processing domain.

  • Patent number: 10244340
    Abstract: Systems and method are disclosed for facilitating efficient calibration of filters for correcting room and/or speaker-based distortion and/or binaural imbalances in audio reproduction, and/or for producing three-dimensional sound in stereo system environments. According to some embodiments, using a portable device such as a smartphone or tablet, a user can calibrate speakers by initiating playback of a test signal, detecting playback of the test signal with the portable device's microphone, and repeating this process for a number of speakers and/or device positions (e.g., next to each of the user's ears). A comparison can be made between the test signal and the detected signal, and this can be used to more precisely calibrate rendering of future signals by the speakers.

  • Publication number: 20180337953
    Abstract: This disclosure relates to systems and methods for managing connected devices and associated network connections. In certain embodiments, trust, privacy, safety, and/or security of information communicated between connected devices may be established in part through use of security associations and/or shared group tokens. In some embodiments, these security associations may be used to form an explicit private network associated with the user. A user may add and/or manage devices included in the explicit private network through management of various security associations associated with the network's constituent devices.

  • Patent number: 10078873
    Abstract: Systems and methods are described for applying digital rights management techniques to tethered devices. In one embodiment, a host device is operable to translate a relatively sophisticated license into a simpler format for use on a relatively low-capability device. In another embodiment, a method of using extended SCSI commands to communicate over a USB connection is provided.

  • Publication number: 20180011938
    Abstract: This disclosure relates to systems and methods for managing data associated with a user using a personalized cloud storage platform operating as a centralized repository for user data generated from a variety of sources and/or user devices. By centralizing the storage and/or management of personal data that would conventionally be confined between multiple information silos, embodiments of the systems and methods disclosed herein may improve the ability of a user to control their personal data, facilitate utilization of their personal data in a variety of ways not offered by services associated with the silos, and/or allow a user to centrally manage their personal data. Further embodiments disclosed herein allow a user to define one or more policies or other rules associated with personal data stored in their personal cloud.

  • 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.
