  • Publication number: 20210226794
    Abstract: A client computing device may obtain access to protected resources with a proof-of-possession (Pop) token. The client computing device may request an access token from an authorization server via an application server. The request may include key material (e.g., token binding type, key, and key parameters) that the client computing device possesses or has access to, such as a public key of an asymmetric public/private key pair. In some embodiments, the public key may be a confirmation (CNF) key, which may be added to the access token and JWT signed by the authorization server. The private key may be retained by the client, who may then use the PoP token to prove possession of the private key.

  • Publication number: 20210224044
    Abstract: A development engine may enable a developer to customize a user experience using an intuitive developer interface. A rules engine may provide constructs to a card engine in the form of card definitions, which the card engine may evaluate using facts obtained from a facts controller. The evaluated card definitions are cards that may be output for presentation via user equipment. Variants may be assigned weights which can be set or changed dynamically by the card engine substantively and in real time based on factors such as user behavior, account condition, promotions or offerings. The card engine may make content decisions proximate to events occurring to the user. The presentation of the cards may be changed substantively and in real time in accordance with the setting or changes in variants.

  • Publication number: 20210224246
    Abstract: A content management system may support a card engine to dynamically perform operations such as configuring content for display via a user interface and generating reports based on user behavior, account status, and business logic. In cooperation with a facts controller to provide facts that the card engine may access substantively in real time, a rules engine to provide constructs in the form of card definitions, and a development engine, the content management system may enable a content manager to effect changes to card and container definitions by providing or modifying rules and rulesets in the rules engine dynamically. Cards evaluated dynamically by the card engine may be transmitted to user equipment. In this way, the content manager may make content decisions in accordance with business logic and events occurring proximate to the user, thereby impacting the user experience and generating reports in a substantive and real-time fashion.

  • Publication number: 20200334151
    Abstract: A card engine may dynamically configure content for display via user equipment (UE). A rules engine may provide constructs to the card engine in the form of card definitions, which the card engine may evaluate using facts obtained from a facts controller. The card engine may create a hierarchy of containers, which are logical abstracts for containing cards. The containers in the hierarchy, which may be organized as a tree, may contain card definitions according to respective themes determined by the card engine. Variants may be assigned weights which can be changed dynamically based on factors such as user behavior, account condition, promotions or offerings. The card having the highest weight within its container is advanced up the tree. When a card reaches the top level of the tree, it may be formatted for display via the user interface and transmitted to the UE accordingly.

  • Patent number: 10716019
    Abstract: The network communication activity of a dual-subscriber identification module (SIM) user device is monitored as the dual-SIM user device communicates with a default wireless carrier network using a default SIM and a first baseband processor of the user device. A first set of key performance indicators (KPIs) for the network communication activity on the default wireless carrier network is determined. A simulation of the network communication activity on an alternative wireless carrier network is then initiated using an alternative SIM and a second baseband processor of the dual-SIM user device. A second set of KPIs for the simulation of the network communication activity on the alternative wireless carrier network is determined. The first and second set of KPIs are then compared to determine one or more network performance features of the alternative wireless carrier network that are superior to the corresponding network performance features of the default wireless carrier network.

  • Publication number: 20200021585
    Abstract: A network terminal, e.g., a smartphone, can retrieve, from a datastore, a cryptographically-signed configuration record including a device identifier of the terminal. The terminal can transmit a request message comprising the configuration record and the device identifier. A network device can verify authenticity of the device identifier and a match between the identifier in the record and the identifier in the message. In response to confirmation of the request by a policy engine, the network device can determine a reply message comprising a cryptographically-signed second configuration record that includes a second device identifier. The terminal can verify that the signature is valid and that the second device identifier matches the device identifier. In response, the terminal can modify data in the datastore according to the second configuration record. The configuration record can lock or unlock the terminal, or determine permitted services or network peers.
