  • Patent number: 11399016
    Abstract: Systems and methods for identifying sequences of encrypted packets that carry files between clients and application servers, and for estimating the sizes of these files. A traffic-monitoring system searches the traffic for connections that appear to carry file content. The system estimates the number of files that were transferred over the connection. Next, the system estimates the respective sizes of one or more of the files that were transferred over the connection. To perform this estimation, the system first “peels away” as many lower-level protocol headers as possible from each of the packets that carries part of the file, and identifies the size that is specified in the lowest-level payload that remains. Next, the system tallies the specified sizes. Finally, the system reduces the packet-size tally to account for an estimated overhead due to the encryption of the packets.

  • Patent number: 11344075
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and computer-readable media are described for predicting a neurological injury to a participant in an activity. The activity can be, for example, an athletic activity that involves repeated, high-impact collisions between participants. Sensor data reflecting interactions between participants in the activity is received from various wearable and non-wearable sensors. The sensor data is evaluated in conjunction with a baseline neurological risk profile of a participant to determine a likelihood that the participant has suffered a potential neurological injury. If this likelihood meets a threshold risk level, an onsite request/response test is initiated to glean more information relating to the participant's condition. Response data associated with the onsite test is cognitively evaluated to determine an updated likelihood of neurological injury to the participant and a follow-up action is determined based on the updated likelihood of neurological injury.

  • Patent number: 11244074
    Abstract: Systems and methods may be provided for masking data on public networks, such as social networking sites. At a publishing node, the system may monitor data input fields in a webpage that are processed by an internet browser. The system may intercept data, such as text, images, and video input at the data input fields, prior to the data being posted online on a public service provider's website. The publishing node may control which users are permitted access to the posted data by defining a policy associated with the data input field. The posted data may be transformed or tokenized to ensure that it is inaccessible to a user (or group of users) unless that user/group is granted access to the decoding key under the policy. In this way, data security and data control may be provided to a publishing user node. Data that has already been posted may be destroyed, for example, by deleting the decryption key or a token.
