    Abstract: Mapping input locations to enable execution of second executable code using trace data gathered during execution of first executable code. A trace of a prior execution of the first code, and the second code, are accessed. The trace stores data of an input that was consumed by first executable instructions of the first code. It is determined that the stored data of the input is usable as an input to second executable instructions of the second code. A difference in how the first instructions accessed the input during recording, as compared to how the second instructions expect to access input, is identified. Based on the identified difference, a location transformation is determined that would enable the second instructions to access the stored data. Execution of the second instructions is emulated using the stored data, including projecting the location transformation to enable the second instructions to access the stored data.

  • Patent number: 11295021
    Abstract: Approaches for monitoring a host operating system. A threat model is stored and maintained in an isolated execution environment. The threat model identifies for any process executing on a host operating system how trustworthy the process should be deemed based on a pattern of observed behavior. The execution of the process and those processes in a monitoring circle relationship thereto are monitored. The monitoring circle relationship includes a parent process, any process in communication with a member of monitoring circle relationship, and any process instantiated by a present member of monitoring circle relationship. Observed process behavior is correlated with the threat model. Upon determining that a particular process has behaved in a manner inconsistent with a pattern of allowable behavior identified by the threat model for that process, a responsive action is taken.

  • Patent number: RE49591
    Abstract: Aspects disclosed in the detailed description include power saving techniques in computing devices. In particular, as data is received by a modem processor in a computing device, the data is held until the expiration of a modem timer. The data is then passed to an application processor in the computing device over a peripheral component interconnect express (PCIe) interconnectivity bus. On receipt of the data from the modem processor, the application processor sends data held by the application processor to the modem processor over the PCIe interconnectivity bus. The application processor also has an uplink timer. If no data is received from the modem processor before expiration of the uplink timer, the application processor sends any collected data to the modem processor at expiration of the uplink timer. However, if data is received from the modem processor, the uplink timer is reset.
