  • Patent number: 10291655
    Abstract: Examination stations may be dynamically reconfigured in response to detecting a fault condition. Specifically, a state of the workflow for the document issuing authority may be determined and a fault condition within the workflow for the document issuing authority may be identified. A processor identifies a dynamically reconfigurable workstation within the document issuing authority in the able to respond to the fault condition; and generates a reconfiguration instruction for the dynamically reconfigurable workstation, the reconfiguration instructions associated with a condition that was specified based upon identifying the fault condition.

  • Patent number: 10290053
    Abstract: Systems and methods comprise a platform including a processor coupled to a database. Risk engines are coupled to the platform and receive event data and risk data from data sources. The event data comprises data of actions taken in a target account during electronic access of the account, and the risk data comprises data of actions taken in a accounts different from the target account. The risk engines, using the event data and the risk data, dynamically generate an account model that corresponds to the target account, and use the account model to generate a risk score. The risk score represents a relative likelihood an action taken in the target account is fraud. A risk application coupled to the platform includes an analytical user interface that displays for the actions in the target account at least one of the risk score and event data of any event in the account.

  • Patent number: 10284379
    Abstract: Systems and methods for managing public key certificates and supporting the users thereof. The certificates are cryptographically encapsulated objects that bind the identities of their owners to public keys and provide digital signature mechanisms for other users to verify the binding and correctness of other attributes of the certificate. Certificates include double links that reflect their validation and position in a public certificates ledger, thereby preventing insertion or removal of certificates in the ledger. Certificate protocols of the system include requesting issuance of certificates, issuing and returning certificates to their requesting users, storing certificates in the certificates ledger, requesting and distributing certificates to transaction partners, verification of certificates by transaction partners, and revoking certificates by their owners. These protocols are performed as direct peer-to-peer transactions between the members of the system.

  • Patent number: 10282618
    Abstract: Multi-blend fingerprinting may be detected. First, a video sample may be received. Next, frames of the received video sample may be step iteratively through until a probability value corresponding to a current frame indicates a match. Deciding that the probability value indicates the match may comprise creating an augmented frame, determining the probability value corresponding to the created augmented frame, and determining that the probability value indicates the match. Then a fingerprint from the created augmented frame may be extracted.

    Abstract: In some embodiments, a compromised data exchange system may include an interface configured to couple to a network, a processor, and a memory accessible to the processor. The memory may be configured to store instructions that, when executed, cause the processor to extract data from one or more websites using a crawler, detect portions within the data that resemble personally identifying information (PII) data based on PII data patterns using a risk assessment module, and to compare a detected portion to data within a database of disassociated compromised PII data to determine a match using the risk assessment module. The instructions may further cause the processor to selectively assign a risk score to a data item within the database in response to determining the match using a risk scoring module.

The fulfillment service may receive a service request from an electronic device. The fulfillment service may determine that the service request includes a deregistration token. Further, the fulfillment service may identify the electronic device associated with deregistration token. In response, the fulfillment service may delete fulfillment service information associated with the electronic device in response to determining the electronic device has been deregistered. In addition, the fulfillment service may send a service response to the electronic device instructing the electronic device to delete the deregistration token. In some cases, the service request may include a registration attempt. As such, the service response may include a security token for the electronic device.

  • Patent number: 10074096
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and computer-readable media for identifying users, records, and/or devices using anonymous source data records associated with consumer activity are described. In general, the consumer activity may relate to consumer interactions with devices and/or content or data through devices. The source data records may be structured, such as associating the source data records with a sequential timeline. Behavioral markers may be generated by the matching system and associated with the source data records. Each behavioral marker may be analyzed across all of the source data records to determine the effectiveness of the behavioral marker to identify unique source data records. One or more of the behavioral markers may be used to generate a behavioral fingerprint. A behavioral fingerprint may be used to identify unique records, devices, and/or users, including identification based on different sets of source data records.

  • Patent number: 10061535
    Abstract: A method and system for reducing storage requirements and speeding up storage operations by reducing the storage of redundant data includes receiving a request that identifies one or more data objects to which to apply a storage operation. For each data object, the storage system determines if the data object contains data that matches another data object to which the storage operation was previously applied. If the data objects do not match, then the storage system performs the storage operation in a usual manner. However, if the data objects do match, then the storage system may avoid performing the storage operation.

  • Patent number: 10019557
    Abstract: Systems, methods, software, and apparatus are described for facilitating the distribution and management of fragmented content. In one embodiment, a packager packages content into fragments and generates a manifest including policies and metadata associated with the content. A downloader obtains the manifest, and uses it to obtain the content from one or more uploaders. For example, a downloader might forward a search request to one or more trackers, which, in turn, are operable to locate one or more uploaders that can meet the request, subject to any relevant policy limitations. The uploaders forward fragments to the downloader, subject to any relevant policy. The downloader assembles the content from the fragments. The operations and interactions of the entities can be subject to policy limitations associated with the fragments, the content as a whole, or the like.

  • Patent number: 10021133
    Abstract: A system and method for detecting a phishing site is disclosed. A message from a client to the site is intercepted by a security gateway. The security gateway determines if the site is a known-site or an unknown-site. If it is a known site, a reputation of the site is checked. If the site is a known-site with a bad reputation, connection between the client and the site is reset. If the site is a known-site with a good reputation, known-site testing is performed for possible phishing attack. If the site is an unknown-site, unknown-site testing for possible phishing attack is performed.

  • Patent number: 10021134
    Abstract: A method of determining a probability that a received email comprises a phishing attempt may comprise analyzing a link therein to determine whether the link comprises a phishing attempt. This determination may comprise comparing features of the link with records stored in a remote database to determine whether the link comprises a phishing attempt. It may be determined that the link comprises a phishing attempt if there is a match. If the compared features do not match the records stored in the remote database, a multi-dimensional input vector may be built from features of the link, which input vector may then be input into a phishing probability engine. The probability that the link comprises a phishing attempt may be computed by the phishing probability engine. Thereafter, the received email may be acted upon according to the computed probability that the link comprises a phishing attempt.
