  • Patent number: 10263987
    Abstract: Techniques for sharing virtual machine (VM) resources are provided. A relative location for a resource within a VM is created; the relative location dynamically resolves to a particular physical location when a principal requests access to the resource at runtime. The principal is located outside an environment associated with the VM. Authentication and access restrictions are dynamically enforced against the requests made by the principal before a connection is permitted between the principal and the resource (the resource located within the environment of the VM).

  • Publication number: 20190036915
    Abstract: A Time-based One-Time Password (TOTP) validator is interposed between a principal and a network service. The validator interacts with a mobile application (app) on the mobile device associated with the principal to dynamically supply a validator secret. The secret and, perhaps, other information are processed by the app to generate a TOTP when the principal attempts to access a protected resource of the network service. The validator independently generates the TOTP and compares the app generated TOTP, and on a successful match, a principal's access device is redirected for access to the protected resource.

  • Patent number: 10182074
    Abstract: Techniques for virtual Representational State Transfer (REST) interfaces are provided. A proxy is interposed between a client and a REST service over a network. The proxy performs independent authentication of the client and provides credentials to the client and for the client to authenticate to the REST service using a REST service authentication mechanism. The proxy inspects requests and responses and translates the requests and responses into formats expected by the client and the REST service. Moreover, the proxy enforces policy and audits the requests and responses occurring between the client and the REST service over the network.

  • Patent number: 10178183
    Abstract: Techniques for preventing information disclosure via dynamic secure cloud resources are provided. Data (information) remotely housed on a particular cloud resource of a particular cloud is periodically, randomly, and dynamically changed to a different cloud resource within the same cloud or to a different cloud resource within an entirely different cloud. A requesting principal for the data is dynamically authenticated and a current location for the data is dynamically resolved and the principal is securely and dynamically connected to the current cloud resource and current cloud hosting the data for access.

  • Patent number: 10148657
    Abstract: Techniques for spawning workloads are provided. A single repository is read once to obtain an image for a workload or files and resources for the image. The read operation spawns multiple, and in some cases, concurrent write operations, to instantiate the workload over a network as multiple occurrences or instances of the workload in multiple processing environments.

  • Patent number: 10097994
    Abstract: Techniques for resetting authentication for touch-enabled devices are presented. When a user authenticates to a mobile device a touch profile (TP) is recorded. Each subsequent time the user unlocks a locked mobile device via touch, a new TP is noted. The new TP is compared to the recorded TP and if the deviation is within an acceptable tolerance, the user is permitted access to the mobile device without re-authentication. When the new TP is not within the acceptable tolerance of the recorded TP, the user is forced to re-authenticate before access is granted to the mobile device.

  • Publication number: 20180270225
    Abstract: An app of a mobile device registers the mobile device for a remote credential server (RCS) and receives a device token. When a credential for a remote asset is supplied on the mobile device it is routed to the RCS and stored external to the mobile device but referenced on the mobile device via an asset token. When the credential is needed, the device token and the asset token permit the RCS to authenticate and return the credential to or on behalf of the mobile device so that the mobile device can authenticate to and access the remote asset.

  • Publication number: 20180255032
    Abstract: A secure server detects a login from a user originating from a first device. A second user-registered device is sent a message. The second device: translates the message into light-based communication that is captured by a camera of the first device, translates the message back into the original message, and sends the translated message to the secure server. The secure server authenticates the message and sends an indication to the first device that the second device is permitted to access the first device. In an embodiment, information passed between the first and second devices continue using light-based communications.

  • Publication number: 20180225584
    Abstract: The system and method for determining fuzzy cause and effect relationships in an intelligent workload management system described herein may combine potential causes and effects captured from various different sources associated with an information technology infrastructure with substantially instantaneous feedback mechanisms and other knowledge sources. As such, fuzzy correlation logic may then be applied to the combined information to determine potential cause and effect relationships and thereby diagnose problems and otherwise manage interactions that occur in the infrastructure. For example, information describing potential causes and potential effects associated with an operational state of the infrastructure may be captured and combined, and any patterns among the information that describes the multiple potential causes and effects may then be identified.
