  • Publication number: 20210367835
    Abstract: In one example, a method and apparatus for optimizing a software defined network configuration are disclosed. In one example, the method determines a first network relative performance parameter for a current configuration of a network, based on respective weighting profiles associated with services for which the network carries data. The method then determines a second network relative performance parameter for a proposed configuration of the network, based on the respective weighting profiles associated with the services for which the network carries data. The proposed configuration is implemented in the network when the second network relative performance parameter is greater than the first network relative performance parameter.

  • Publication number: 20210359981
    Abstract: The disclosed exemplary embodiments include computer-implemented systems, apparatuses, and processes that, among other things, authenticate device identity and authorize exchanges of data in real-time based on dynamically generated cryptographic data. For example, an apparatus may receive a first signal that includes a first cryptogram associated with a client device, and may perform operations that authenticate an identity of the client device based on a comparison of the received first cryptogram and a second cryptogram generated by a computing system associated with an application program executed by the client device. In response to the authenticated identity, the apparatus may load profile data associated with the client device from a storage unit, and perform operations consistent with the profile data in accordance with the authenticated identity.

  • Publication number: 20210342835
    Abstract: A payment terminal includes a card interface and a transaction processor. The terminal receives a preliminary authorization amount, and receives application data from a payment card that is interfaced with the card interface. The application data includes an account number that is uniquely associated with the payment card. The processor generates an adjusted authorization amount from the account number and the preliminary authorization amount, determines whether the adjusted authorization amount can be authorized offline, and transmits a cryptogram request to the payment card. The adjusted authorization amount is different from the preliminary authorization amount. The cryptogram request includes the adjusted authorization amount.

  • Publication number: 20210303585
    Abstract: A processing system including at least one processor may obtain a first request for delivery of a first data set to a first destination, map the first request to a first information model, obtain a second request for delivery of a second data set to a second destination, map the second request to a second information model, and identify that a portion of data is part of both data sets. The processing system may next determine a plan for configuring data pipeline components for delivering the first data set to the first destination and the second data set to the second destination, the plan comprising: a combination of the first information model and the second information model, and at least one modification to the combination. The processing system may then configure the data pipeline components in accordance with the plan.

  • Publication number: 20210286818
    Abstract: Concepts and technologies disclosed herein are directed to automated control loop searching (“ACLS”). According to one aspect disclosed herein, an ACLS system can create a search model that provides high-level information regarding what the ACLS system should search for when a search pattern is detected within data that is output from execution of a control loop. The ACLS system can activate a control loop system that executes the control loop to yield the data as output. The ACLS system can detect the search pattern within data, and in response, the ACLS system can execute, based upon the search model, a search of the data. The ACLS system can collect search results of the search and select additional data from the search results.
