  • Publication number: 20180359233
    Abstract: Techniques are disclosed relating to contextual authentication across different applications based on user communications. In some embodiments, a user is preauthenticated to certain actions on a second application based on the user's communication via a first application. The user's communication via a first application provides contextual information that may be used to preauthenticate a request to perform an action on the second application. Contextual information may include the user's communication itself and/or communications characteristics that are determined from the user's communications.

  • Publication number: 20180337913
    Abstract: Mechanisms and techniques for customized user validation. A login attempt is received from a remote electronic device with one or more computing devices that provide access to one or more resources. The login attempt is analyzed to determine a profile from a plurality of profiles corresponding to the login attempt. The one or more computing devices support the plurality profiles with each profile having a corresponding flow. The flow corresponding to the profile is performed prior to allowing continuation of the login attempt. The login attempt is continued, via the one or more computing devices, after the flow corresponding to the profile is completed. Access is granted to the one or more resources, via the one or more computing devices, in response to a successful completion of the login attempt.

  • Publication number: 20170339148
    Abstract: Controlling access to sensitive data can be difficult during an application development effort. A developer may not be authorized to see the data that is to be used by the application. Credentials used in a development environment to access development data can require modification when the application is migrated to a deployed environment. Changing the code in the deployed environment increases risks of change induced incidents. The technology disclosed allows for the creation of a named credential object, where the credentials for different environments are stored, and where the named credential object is called by metadata. This allows the promotion of code from a development environment to a deployed environment without changes to code, and without giving access to sensitive data to the developer.

  • Patent number: 8533786
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for protecting against attacks from outside content is described. In one example, a request is received from a user to access content from a second domain. An active session for the user with the second domain is searched for. If no active session is found, then an active session with a related first domain is searched for. If an active session is found with the first domain, then a session is established with the second domain based on the active session with the first domain. The requested content is then provided to the user based on the established session with the second domain.

  • Publication number: 20120331536
    Abstract: A method executable by a server system confirms the identity of a user of a client device. The method receives an activation request from the client device and maintains information corresponding to a destination resource requested by the client device. In response to receiving the activation request, the server system sends a code to a registered device of the user. After sending the code, the server system receives a verification request from the client device. The verification request includes a user-entered representation of the code. In response to receiving the verification request the client device is activated as a new registered device for the user, and the server system seamlessly provides the destination resource to the client device using the maintained information.

  • Publication number: 20120144501
    Abstract: Various techniques and procedures related to client authorization and the management of protected data resources are presented here. One approach employs a computer-implemented method of regulating access to protected data resources. In accordance with this approach, a client sends a first access token to a server, the first access token having first data access attributes associated therewith. In response to receiving the first access token, the server sends a second access token to the client module, the second access token having second data access attributes associated therewith. The second data access attributes represent expanded or additional data access capabilities granted to the client. The client may then access protected data resources using the second data access token.
