  • Publication number: 20220201009
    Abstract: Systems and methods for creating and handling workspace indicators of compromise (IOC) based upon configuration drift are described. In some embodiments, a memory storage device may have program instructions stored thereon that, upon execution by one or more processors of an Information Handling System (IHS) of a workspace orchestration service, cause the IHS to: receive configuration information from a client IHS at a workspace orchestration service, where the configuration information represents a change in a configuration of a workspace executed by the client IHS, and where the workspace is instantiated based upon a workspace definition provided by the workspace orchestration service; determine, by the workspace orchestration service, that the configuration information matches an IOC; and transmit, from the workspace orchestration service to the client IHS, an instruction to perform an action responsive to the IOC.

  • Publication number: 20220191152
    Abstract: Systems and methods for performing self-contained posture assessment from within a protected portable-code workspace are described. In some embodiments, an Information Handling System (IHS) may include a processor and a memory having program instructions that, upon execution, cause the IHS to: transmit, from an orchestration service to a local agent, a workspace definition that references an application, where the application comprises a first portion of code provided by a developer and a second portion of code provided by the orchestration service; and receive, from a local agent at the orchestration service, a message in response to the execution of the second portion of code within a workspace instantiated based upon the workspace definition. The second portion of code may inspect the contents of the runtime memory of the workspace upon execution, for example, by performing a stack canary check, a hash analysis, a boundary check, and/or a memory scan.

  • Patent number: 11334675
    Abstract: Systems and methods support secure transfer of data between workspaces operating on an IHS (Information Handling System). Upon a request for access to a first managed resource, such as protected data, a first workspace is deployed according to a first workspace definition. Upon a request for access to a second managed resource, a second workspace is deployed according to a second workspace definition. In response to an indication of a portion of the protected data from the first workspace being copied to a buffer supported by the IHS and of a request to paste the copied portion of the protected data to the second workspace, the protections provided by the second workspace are evaluated. If the protections of the second workspace are inadequate, an updated second workspace definition is selected that specifies additional protections. The second workspace is updated according to the updated second workspace definition and the transfer is permitted.

  • Patent number: 11336655
    Abstract: Systems and methods provide multilevel authorization of workspaces using certificates, where all of the authorization levels may be authorized separately or may instead be authorized at once. A measurement of an IHS (Information Handling System) is calculated based on the identity of the IHS and based on firmware of the IHS. A measurement of the configuration of the IHS is calculated based on information for configuring the IHS for supporting workspaces and also based on the IHS measurement. A measurement of a workspace session is calculated based on properties of a session used to remotely support operation of the workspace by the IHS and also based on the configuration measurement. Workspace session data may by authorized at all three levels by evaluating the session measurement against a reference session measurement.

  • Patent number: 11316902
    Abstract: Methods and system are provided for dynamically securing a workspace based on changes in the security context in which the workspace operates. Upon receiving a request from an IHS for access to a managed resource and receiving attributes of a risk context for the request, a risk score for the request is determined. A workspace definition that provides access to the managed resource is selected based on the risk score. A workspace definition includes security requirements for operation of the workspace by the IHS, where the security requirements are commensurate with the risk score. The workspace definition is transmitted to the IHS for operation of the workspace according to the security requirements. A risk context may include, IHS software, a physical environment in which the IHS is located, a physical location of the IHS, a classification of the requested resource, IHS hardware, and a user of the IHS.

  • Patent number: 11284031
    Abstract: A low-power image sensor includes a plurality of light-sensitive pixel cells, a plurality of analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) and image processing circuitry. The image sensor can be disposed in multiple semiconductor layers such that the pixel cells are disposed in a first layer and various other components are disposed in the second layer or between the first layer and the second layer. The image sensor is configured such that the analog output of a pixel cell is sampled by a first ADC and a second ADC within respective first and second dynamic ranges, the second dynamic range being greater than the first dynamic range. The first ADC and the second ADC sample the analog output with different sampling resolutions. The digital outputs of the first ADC and the second ADC are subsequently used by an image processor to generate a pixel value for an image frame.
