  • Patent number: 10038703
    Abstract: Embodiments are disclosed for profiling network-level malicious activity. Profiling embodiments include observing malicious activity, representing such activity in accordance with a set of representative features, capturing temporal evolution of this malicious behavior and its dynamics, and using this temporal evolution to reveal key risk related properties of these networks. Embodiments are further disclosed addressing the connectedness of various networks and similarity in network-level maliciousness. Embodiments directed to similarity analyses include focusing on the notion of similarity—a quantitative measure of the extent to which the dynamic evolutions of malicious activities from two networks are alike, and mapping this behavioral similarity to their similarity in certain spatial features, which includes their relative proximity to each other and may be used to help predict the future maliciousness of a particular network.

  • Patent number: 9729558
    Abstract: Network security and robustness is analyzed by developing correlations among network maliciousness observations to determine attack susceptibility. Network traffic is analyzed at the autonomous system (AS) level, among connected Internet Protocol (IP) routing prefixes, to identify these observations. The traffic is monitored for any of a number of specified mismanagement metrics. Correlations among these metrics are determined and a unified network mismanagement metric is developed, indicating network susceptibility to potentially malicious attack.

  • Patent number: 8992536
    Abstract: A bone anchor assembly is provided, which may be used in cervical, thoracic, lumbar or sacral areas of the spine or other orthopedic locations. The anchor assembly includes a bone anchor, a receiver mounted to the bone anchor, a saddle within the receiver, a spacer within the receiver, and an engaging member. The receiver extends along a central longitudinal axis proximally away from the bone anchor. A rod or other elongated connecting element is received in a passage of the receiver in contact with the saddle, and the engaging member engages the connecting element against the saddle, which engages the saddle against the spacer, which in turn engages the proximal head of the bone anchor in the receiver. The orientation of the saddle in the receiver is adjustable to correspond to the orientation of the connecting element relative to the central longitudinal axis of the receiver.

  • Publication number: 20130030535
    Abstract: This invention relates to methods and instruments for performing a surgical procedure in a disc space between adjacent vertebrae. A cannula is inserted to create a working channel through the skin and tissue of a patient using a transforaminal approach to the disc space. A viewing element is used to visualize working end of the cannula and the disc space. A facetectomy is performed through the working channel to access the disc space. The disc space is prepared with various instruments, such as distractors, shims, chisels and distractor-cutters that extend through the working channel. At least implant is inserted into the disc space. The procedure allows bi-lateral support of the adjacent vertebrae with the at least one implant inserted via a unitary, minimally invasive approach to disc space.
