  • Patent number: 10146749
    Abstract: An embodiment for tracking JavaScript actions in a rich Internet application, receives a document object model (DOM) representative of a particular page of an application at a particular time and analyzes the DOM received to identify each JavaScript action on the particular page for which each JavaScript action identified, a JavaScript action characteristics ID is calculated and stored. Responsive to a determination multiple instances of a same ID exist, collecting a list of JavaScript actions corresponding to each ID corresponding to a multiple JavaScript action and removing from memory JavaScript action entries for the multiple instances of the same ID. A neighbor influence is computed for a member of the list of JavaScript actions remaining and the JavaScript action ID calculated for the member of the list of JavaScript actions remaining is stored. Responsive to a determination there are no more multiple JavaScript actions, return all JavaScript action IDs stored.

  • Patent number: 10114804
    Abstract: Embodiments are directed to computing, by an apparatus comprising a processing device, an identifier (ID) for an element in a page using an algorithm responsive to encountering the element a first time, causing, by the apparatus, the ID to be stored in a storage device, encountering, by the apparatus, the element a second time, determining, by the apparatus, that the element is encountered the second time, and responsive to determining that the element is encountered the second time, representing, by the apparatus, the element by the ID at the time of the second encounter by retrieving the ID from the storage device.

  • Publication number: 20170371969
    Abstract: A computer-implemented process for identifying equivalent links on a page responsive to a determination that the crawler has not visited all required universal resource locators, locates a next URL to be crawled to form a current URL and processes the current URL to identify equivalent URLs. Responsive to a determination that the crawler has not visited the current URL, determine whether necessary to crawl all identified equivalent URLs and responsive to a determination that it is necessary to crawl all identified equivalent URLs, adding all equivalent URLs to a list of URLs to be crawled.

  • Publication number: 20170116336
    Abstract: Synchronizing requests with a respective context includes, responsive to a determination that there are more pages to explore, performing regular crawling operations for a current page, recording a current page in a list of explored pages and extracting links from the current page. Responsive to a determination that there are more links to extract, a next link to analyze is selected to form a selected link and responsive to a determination that there is a new request associated with the selected link, a new request identifier is created and saved as an entry in a hashmap. Responsive to a determination that there is not a new request associated with selected link, a request associated with the selected link is updated with a new link value when the link value differs.

  • Publication number: 20160188884
    Abstract: An illustrative embodiment of automated application decomposition generates a set of information specific to an application by one or more external tools. Predefined heuristics and corresponding predefined conclusions, categorized corresponding to one or more external tool domains, are applied to the set of information to produce an intermediate result. The intermediate result is converted into a set of conclusions about factors, representative of the application, used in application decomposition. The set of conclusions is exported and used to generate a model of the application. The model is a starting point for identification of threats and weaknesses specific to the application.

  • Patent number: 8768928
    Abstract: DOM based unique ID generation, including receiving a hypertext markup language (HTML) page at a computer, and identifying HTML page elements in response to the receiving, the HTML page elements comprising parent nodes, the parent nodes comprising child nodes. The method further comprising processing each of the HTML page elements, the processing comprising: grouping the child nodes by parent node into a group of child nodes, detecting patterns in the group of child nodes in response to the grouping, reducing the group of child nodes to text strings in response to the detecting, storing the text strings as text values in the parent nodes, and generating a unique identifier (ID) of the HTML page in response to the processing.
