  • Publication number: 20150206263
    Abstract: A method of modeling a jurisdiction provides jurisdiction resilience information and jurisdiction impact information. The method models a jurisdiction system by determining the multiple different systems present in a particular jurisdiction. The method determines the assets of the multiple different systems and stores asset information describing the respective assets of the multiple different systems in a jurisdiction meta-model. The method may determine critical paths across the different systems of the jurisdiction and identify those critical paths across different systems in the jurisdiction meta-model. The method may also determine cascading effects of incidents to assets within each system and identify those cascading effects within each system in the jurisdiction meta-model. The method may also determine cross-cascading effects of incidents to assets across different systems of the jurisdiction and identifying those cross-cascading effects in the jurisdiction meta-model.

  • Patent number: 8406311
    Abstract: A method and system for embedding an electronic watermark directly in an MPEG stream is provided. An intra-macroblock of an I-frame or of a P or B-frame is detected in an MPEG stream, and following the detection of an intra-macroblock of the I-frame or of the P or B-frame, data for one macroblock are extracted from the MPEG stream and buffered. An embedding pattern is embedded in the buffered macroblock without changing the length of VLC, and the resultant macroblock is returned to the MPEG stream. More specifically, a DC factor is extracted from the buffered macroblock, and a pseudorandom number is generated to produce an embedding pattern. Then, whether the bit length of the DC factor will not be changed by embedding the obtained embedded pattern is determined. When the bit length of the DC factor not be changed, the embedding pattern is embedded in the buffered macroblock. When the bit length will be changed, whether ½ of the embedding pattern can be embedded is determined.

  • Patent number: 7093299
    Abstract: A system for authenticating digital data capable of preventing change or disguise of data by improvement or interchange in case of no confidentiality in the data itself so as to maintain the data. When writing digital data from an input device to a memory and transferring the digital data from the memory to a receiving device, device authentication is performed between the input device and the memory and between the memory and the receiving device respectively. At the same time, when writing digital data to the memory, in the case of implementing on the digital data an electronic signature by a one-way hash function and also reading from the memory and transferring the digital data, the implemented electronic signature is decrypted so as to transfer the digital data after ensuring that it has not been changed since it was recorded. Thus, it is possible to prevent change or disguise of data by improvement or interchange in case of no confidentiality in the data itself so as to maintain the data.

  • Patent number: 6963655
    Abstract: The present invention is directed to the detection of what part of an image alteration was added to by embedding an electronic watermark in the image. More particularly, embedding part 30 renders as pairs two each of DCT blocks of luminance component Y of an image, randomly selects, by using a random number, mutually corresponding DCT coefficients from each DCT block contained in the pairs, and manipulates so that the relationship among these DCT coefficients represent data according to a certain rule, and then embeds the data. If alteration is added to this image, the DCT coefficients contained in the pairs in the altered part do not observe the above rule and represent different values from the original data. Extraction part 40 extracts data from the image, and makes decision by majority to estimate the initially embedded data to detect and display the pairs from which different data form the estimated data was extracted as those to which alteration was added.

  • Patent number: 6829367
    Abstract: Content data is judged to determine whether data prepared by a digital device were altered by performing an authentication process using a medium on which content data are recorded; reading the content data from the medium; embedding, in the content data, data for verifying the pertinent content; extracting, from the content data, the data for verifying the pertinent contents; using the results of the extraction to determine whether the content data were altered. Preferably, the means includes means for identifying any portion containing altered data.

  • Patent number: 6782509
    Abstract: A method and a system for embedding information in document data that include text written in a page description language. First, an analysis is made of the layout of the document data in which information is to be embedded. Then, based on the analysis of the layout, a sequence of locations is generated whereat the information is to be embedded. A page description of the text at a determined location is changed in accordance with the embedded information. As a result, the information is embedded in document data that include text written in a page description language. The sequence of locations is generated by producing a string of sequential pseudo-random numbers.
