  • Publication number: 20180048640
    Abstract: Methods and systems are provided for managing access to a client account related (CAR) resource. When a privilege-constrained (PC) application requests access to an individual client account, a single use authorization (SUA) code is created that is associated with the individual client account. The SUA code is routed to, and returned from, the privilege-constrained (PC) application to authenticate the PC application. The PC application, once authenticated, receives a permitted action token that identifies a limited set of privileges that the PC application is authorized to perform in connection with the CAR resource. The PC application provides the permitted action token to an access service. The access service limits access, by the PC application, to the CAR resource based on the permitted action token.

  • Publication number: 20180032428
    Abstract: Application developers may develop applications or portions of application that do not have a corresponding user interface. Testing non-user interface elements of an application may require application developers to develop corresponding user interface elements for all or a portion of the executable code included in the application. Developers may test non-user interface elements of an application or library by wrapping the executable code in a sample application managed by a test harness. The test harness may transmit test operations configured to test the non-user interface elements of the application to the sample application over an inter-process communication channel. The sample application may execute the test and return the results of the test to the test harness using inter-process communication methods.
