Security Or Fraud Prevention Patents (Class 455/410)
  • Patent number: 11328294
    Abstract: An in-application content transfer system that generates receiver IDs to categorize a given exchange between two users where one does not execute a local instance of the application. One user executes the application on their mobile device and makes use of near-field communication protocols with a neighboring mobile device that is not executing the subject application. The content transfer is linked to the receiver's phone number and a unique ID is assigned to the content transfer. The receiving user is made aware of the content transfer via a push notification received via near field communication or via an SMS text message. The received message or notification enables the user to retrieve the content from the transfer at a later time.

  • Patent number: 11321754
    Abstract: Methods, apparatus, and systems are disclosed for detection of a network signal identifying an electronic device in response to a transaction initiated by an entity. For example, the network signal can be transmitted by the electronic device in response to an initial network connection. An entity identifier identifies the entity associated with initiating a transaction based on matching identifying information contained in the network signal with transaction information from a supply chain. A configurator to configure the electronic device specific to the identified entity can be based on a feature set determined by channels through which the electronic device came to an end user. The feature set programs the electronic device to interoperate with a network device in response to the initial network connection.

  • Patent number: 11316877
    Abstract: Techniques are described for automatically incorporating lifecycle information for a secured environment (SE) into an intrusion detection system monitoring the secured environment's operations. In one example, a secured environment including at least one component is monitored, where the secured environment is associated with a lifecycle operations manager (LOM) responsible for managing lifecycle operations associated with at least one component in the SE. One or more log files associated with operations of each of the at least one components are obtained, along with log files associated with lifecycle operations executed by the LOM. A determination is made as to whether the particular activities documented in the log files indicate a violation of at least one malicious action rule. In response to determining that the log files are associated with a malicious action rule, a mitigation action associated with the violation is triggered.

  • Patent number: 11100572
    Abstract: A financial institution computing system associated with a financial institution includes an account management circuit configured to prompt a user via a user device to capture a first image of an identification item of the user and a second image of the user using the user device in response to receiving, over a network via a network interface, an input from the user device regarding establishing a new account at the financial institution. The account management circuit is further configured to receive, over the network via the network interface, the first image and the second image, verify the identity of the user by comparing the first image with the second image, and create the new account for the user by generating an account number for the user and storing the account number in the accounts database in response to the identity of the user being verified.

  • Patent number: 11092998
    Abstract: A system comprises an eyewear device that includes a frame, a temple connected to a lateral side of the frame, a fingerprint sensor, and a sensing circuit. The fingerprint sensor includes an input surface to receive input of a finger skin surface. The sensing circuit is configured to track a pattern of fingerprint ridges of the finger skin surface on the input surface. Execution of programming by a processor configures the system to perform functions to track, via the sensing circuit, the pattern of fingerprint ridges of the finger skin surface on the input surface; generate a fingerprint image having the tracked pattern of fingerprint ridges; extract fingerprint features from the fingerprint image; and authorize the user to utilize the eyewear device based on the extracted fingerprint features.
