  • Patent number: 10715504
    Abstract: A method, system, and non-transitory computer readable medium are described for providing a sender a plurality of ephemeral keys such that a sender and receiver can exchange encrypted communications. Accordingly, a sender may retrieve information, such as a public key and a key identifier, for the first receiver from a local storage. The retrieved information may be used to generate a key-encrypting key that is used to generate a random communication encryption key. The random communication encryption key is used to encrypt a communication, while the key-encrypting key encrypts the random communication key. The encrypted communication and the encrypted random communication key are transmitted to the first receiver.

  • Patent number: 10255413
    Abstract: A microservice join request is received by a first microservice from a second microservice within a microservices system. The microservice join request includes microservice trust relationship information of the second microservice that defines microservice credentials and service description parameters of the second microservice. Using the microservice trust relationship information, a determination is made as to whether a consensus exists among other microservices within the microservices system that the second microservice is authorized to inter-operate within the microservices system. In response to determining that the consensus exists, validated local run-time inter-operational microservice trust relationship information is created. At least one run-time inter-operation request is received that includes a relationship trust token from the second microservice.

  • Patent number: 10204340
    Abstract: Systems and methods for providing optical communication between a vehicle and an external actor include a system provider device that establishes, through communication over a network with at least one vehicle, the at least one vehicle as a communication proxy. Establishing the at least one vehicle as a communication proxy may include pairing the at least one vehicle with a user device. In various embodiments, the system provider also receives a communication trigger. In response to the communication trigger, the system provider may transmit a modulated optical signal via an illumination source of one of the at least one vehicle and an external actor, to the other of the at least one vehicle and the external actor. The system provider detects, at the other of the at least one vehicle and the external actor, the modulated optical signal and demodulates the transmitted optical signal.

  • Patent number: 10200329
    Abstract: Disclosed is a method for detecting an abnormal message, comprising: diving a text of a detected message into a plurality of text segments; obtaining one or more account attributes of each text segment, and determining a publication proportion parameter corresponding to the account attributes of each text segment; determining a first factor corresponding to the account attributes of each text segment according to the publication proportion parameter; determining a second factor of the detected message according to the first factor corresponding to the account attributes of each text segment; and determining according to the second factor of the detected message whether the detected message is an abnormal message. Through the combination of publication account attributes of messages with undifferentiated text segmentation and the use of Bayesian algorithm, batches of junk messages of a microblog account are effectively limited, and the flexibility of junk message processing is improved.

  • Patent number: 10182051
    Abstract: Block chain-based multifactor personal identity verification may be provided. Verification addresses may be established on a block chain by: associating identifiers with individuals having previously verified personal identities, assigning verification addresses on a block chain to the individuals, and recording identifiers and biometric data associated with the individuals at corresponding verification addresses. Block chain-based multifactor personal identity verification using the verification addresses may be performed by: receiving one or more identifiers in connection with one or more requests to verify an identity of one or more individuals, extracting the biometric data associated with the one or more individuals from the corresponding verification addresses, and verifying the identity of the one or more individuals upon receiving matching biometric data and private keys.

  • Patent number: 10158605
    Abstract: Presented herein are techniques for enabling delegated access control of an enterprise network. In particular, data representing a trust chain formed between a local domain and a remote domain is stored in an identity management system. The local domain has an associated secure enterprise computing network and wherein the trust chain identifies one or more outside entities associated with the remote domain that are authorized to access the secure enterprise computing network. The identity management system receives a request for access to the secure enterprise computing network by a first outside entity of the one or more outside entities associated with the remote domain. Access by the outside entity to the secure enterprise computing network is controlled/determined based on an analysis of the trust chain.

  • Patent number: 10044734
    Abstract: A virtual business mobile device can be provisioned on a personal mobile device, by binding a mobile application for provisioning the business mobile device to a privileged component of a host operating system of the personal mobile device, wherein the binding enables a software virtualization layer and a management service component of the mobile application to execute in a privileged mode. The mobile application is then able to download a virtual phone image for the business mobile device and security-related policy settings relating to use of the business mobile device from a mobile management server, wherein the software virtualization layer is able to launch a virtual machine for the business mobile device based on the virtual phone image. Once the virtual phone image has been downloaded, the management service component initiates a periodic attempt to establish a connection with the mobile management server to comply with the downloaded security-related policy settings.
