  • Publication number: 20180332026
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a user authentication server may use geo-location tracking to determine whether to present an enhanced identity challenge. A communication interface 180 may receive a user login attempt by a user and a current location of the user login attempt. A data storage 150 may store a user location profile of the user. A processor 120 may execute a comparison of the current location to the user location profile. The communication interface 180 may present the user with an enhanced identity challenge before allowing user access based on the comparison.

  • Patent number: 8291067
    Abstract: An approach is described for maintaining multiple presence objects associated with a single entity. The different presence objects correspond to different respective aspects of the entity's presence. Each presence object includes subscriber information and permission information associated therewith. The subscriber information identifies the subscribers that subscribe to receive notifications for a particular presence object. The permission information identifies the users who are entitled to receive notifications for the particular presence object. By virtue of the use of multiple objects, the entity can control access to its presence information with a high degree of granularity.

  • Patent number: 7457873
    Abstract: In accordance with a method and system for centralized network usage tracking, documents on a network server include a reference to content on a centralized logging server. When one of the documents is accessed by a client computer, the process of rendering the content at the client computer includes requesting the content from the logging server. The logging server, upon receipt of such a request, logs information embedded in the request and returns a trivial response which requires little time and which rendering of need not be perceivable by the user.

  • Publication number: 20080270229
    Abstract: Implementations of behavioral advertisement targeting and creation of ad-hoc microcommunities through user authentication are described. In one implementation, a user is allowed to submit authentication information on a webpage associated with a third party website. For example, a user can identify himself by entering a username and password to an email account unaffiliated with the third party website. The authentication information can then be used to access a personal account associated with the user. For example, behavioral data associated with the user can be gathered from the personal account and be used to present advertisements on the webpage targeting a specific behavioral profile of the user. Alternately, the user can be presented with options to interact with information in the personal account. For example, the user may be given the opportunity to invite members of a contacts list in the personal account to visit the webpage.

  • Patent number: 6721749
    Abstract: Described herein is a data collection and warehousing system that collects log files from a plurality of servers, and that transforms the entries of the log files prior to using them to populate a database. Nightly, the system provides a pre-processing program to each of the servers. The servers executing the pre-processing component to filter the logged data before sending it on to the data collection and warehousing system. The data collection and warehousing system pre-parses each received log file to create dimension and fact tables. During this process, strings are replaced by keys. These keys are calculated on-the-fly by taking a hash of each string. The resulting tables are then further parsed to create further dimension and fact tables that correspond to each of the dimension and fact tables of a relational database schema. After further processing, these tables are loaded into a data warehousing system.
