  • Publication number: 20190149547
    Abstract: In an example, an action is received in a user interface that necessitates access of data, corresponding to the user, stored by a second network entity distinct from, a first network entity. A combined consent screen is then displayed, the combined consent screen including a button which, when activated in the user interface, authorizes data corresponding to the user to be exchanged in both directions between the first network entity and the second network entity. In response to the receiving of the indication that the button has been activated, a first access grant is generated at the first network entity and sent to the second network entity. An exchange of authorization code is received from the second network entity. A first access token corresponding to the first access grant is generated and sent to the second network entity. A second access token corresponding to a second access grant is received.

    Abstract: The subject matter described herein includes methods, systems, and computer readable medium for scrambled communication of data to, from, or over a medium. According to one aspect, the subject matter described herein includes a method for communicating data in scrambled form to or over a medium. The method includes receiving analog or digital data to be transmitted to or over a medium. The method further includes modulating samples representing at least signal using the analog or digital data to produce data modulated signal samples. The method further includes scrambling the data modulated signal samples using a predetermined scrambling algorithm. The method further includes transmitting the scrambled data modulated signal samples to or over the medium. The method further includes descrambling samples received from the medium using the inverse of the predetermined scrambling algorithm to obtain the unscrambled modulated signal samples, which can then be demodulated to retrieve original data.

  • Patent number: 9392228
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for obtaining look-ahead segments for a streaming media item during playback such that the viewer can easily skip to the look-ahead segments without experiencing any substantial interruption or delay in playback. In general, a streaming media source begins streaming a media item to a streaming media client for playback. In one embodiment, the streaming media client selects one or more segments of the media item as one or more look-ahead segments to prefetch from the streaming media source. Then, while the media item is being streamed to the streaming media client for playback, the streaming media client prefetches the one or more look-ahead segments of the media item from the streaming media source. The look-ahead segments are thereafter utilized to enable the viewer to skip ahead in playback without experiencing a substantial interruption or delay in playback.
