  • Publication number: 20210350361
    Abstract: An attempted transaction is identified involving a customer device and the first customer device is redirected to a security broker. A security report for the first customer device is received from the security broker. The security report is based on security data transmitted from the customer device to the security broker. An action can be performed in association with the attempted transaction based at least in part on the received security report. In some aspects, the security broker receives security data describing security conditions on the customer device in connection with the transaction between the customer device and a transaction partner. A risk tolerance policy is identified that corresponds to the transaction partner, such as an ecommerce provider. A security report is generated based on a comparison of the risk tolerance policy and the security data and the security report.

  • Patent number: 11159558
    Abstract: A query is received from a particular endpoint device identifying a particular wireless access point encountered by the particular endpoint device. Pre-existing risk assessment data is identified for the identified particular wireless access point and query result data is sent to the particular endpoint device characterizing pre-assessed risk associated with the particular wireless access point. In some instances, the query result data is generated based on the pre-existing risk assessment data. In some instances, pre-existing risk assessment data can be the result of an earlier risk assessment carried-out at least in part by an endpoint device interfacing with and testing the particular wireless access point.

  • Publication number: 20210014220
    Abstract: A secure identifier is derived, using a secured microcontroller of a computing device, that is unique to a pairing of the computing device and a particular domain. Secure posture data corresponding to attributes of the computing device is identified in secured memory of the computing device. The secure identifier and security posture is sent in a secured container to a management device of the particular domain. The particular domain can utilize the information in the secured container to authenticate the computing device and determine a security task to be performed relating to interactions of the computing device with the particular domain.

  • Publication number: 20200267135
    Abstract: In one embodiment, an apparatus comprises a processor to execute instructions and having at least a first logic to execute in a trusted execution environment, a secure storage to store a platform group credential, and a first logical device comprising at least one hardware logic. The platform group credential may be dynamically provisioned into the apparatus and corresponding to an enhanced privacy identifier associated with the apparatus. The first logical device may have a first platform group private key dynamically provisioned into the first logical device and corresponding to an enhanced privacy identifier associated with the first logical device, to bind the first logical device to the apparatus. Other embodiments are described and claimed.

  • Patent number: 10505965
    Abstract: A particular activity performed by a particular user of a computing device is identified, for instance, by an agent installed on the computing device. It is determined that the particular activity qualifies as a particular use violation in a plurality of pre-defined use violations. A behavioral risk score for the particular score for the user is determined based at least in part on the determination that the particular activity of the particular user qualifies as a particular use violation. Determining that the particular activity qualifies as a particular use violation can include determining that the particular activity violates a particular rule or event trigger corresponding to a particular pre-defined use violation.

  • Patent number: 10482217
    Abstract: Managing playback of a media file, including detecting, while a media file is playing, a trigger mechanism indicating a change in optimal play characteristics of the media file from an original format, wherein the playback of the media file is associated with a first license, in response to detecting the trigger mechanism, instructing a trusted execution environment to request an updated license from a content provider of the media file, and upon receiving a second license for the media file, the trusted execution environment enforces play of the media file using the second license for a second format. The second license allows for the play of the media file to continue at the optimal play characteristics.
