  • Patent number: 11985122
    Abstract: A system and method for sharing content data between networked devices in communication with a server processor circuit via a data network is disclosed. The method involves, in response to a request received at the server from a first networked device to upload content data, causing the content data to be written to a storage location at a content storage address. The method also involves causing the server processor circuit to store the content storage address in a database managed by the server. The method further involves causing the server processor circuit to associate an access key with the content storage address in the database and to determine and store an expiry for the access key in the database, the expiry facilitating a determination as to whether the access key remains actively associated with the content data or has expired and is no longer associated with the content data.

  • Patent number: 11985204
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for transferring state between devices. In one implementation, a gestural input is detected, and a state of a source application is transferred from a first device to a second device in response to the gestural input. The second device may then generate an instance of a target application that corresponds to a representation of the state of the source application received from the first device. In an additional implementation, a state of the target application is transferred from the second device to the first device. The first device then updates a state of the source application to correspond to a representation of the state of the target application received from the second device.

  • Patent number: 11977451
    Abstract: Described is a system (and method) for application-based packing for storing backup data within an object storage. More particularly, the system may efficiently pack backup files into objects having a specialized size by accounting for the source and size of the backup file. For example, the system may determine whether backup files associated with a particular application may be stored within individual objects or packed together within a shared object. Accordingly, by accounting for such criteria the system may perform an intelligent allocation of backup data within a cloud-based object storage. The system may be implemented as part of an incremental backup infrastructure. Accordingly, when allocating the backup files amongst objects, the system may also store specialized metadata to preserve the ability to perform a reconstruction of data (e.g. synthetically) as if a full backup was performed.

  • Patent number: 11979395
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and computer media for securing software applications are provided herein. Through an enhanced authentication token, an application session request can be deceptively authenticated. When a malicious session request is detected, an enhanced authentication token can be generated that appears to successfully authenticate the session but contains information indicating that the session is malicious. The attacker believes that the session has been authenticated, but the information in the token indicating that the session is malicious causes an application clone session to be established instead of an actual application session. The clone session appears to be an actual application session but protects the valid user's account by including fake data instead of the user's actual data.

  • Patent number: 11962641
    Abstract: A method for locally serving content is described. The method includes receiving, at a gateway device, a first request for a data file via a first user device communicatively coupled to the gateway device. The data file is received at the gateway device from an external server and sent to the first user device. A data record is stored to a storage device indicating that the data file has been sent to the first user device. A second request for the data file is later received at the gateway device from a second user device communicatively coupled to the gateway device. In response to the receiving of the second request, the data record is accessed and causes a computer read of the data record. The first user device is then instructed to transfer the data file to the second user device, via the gateway device, based upon the computer read.

  • Patent number: 11953327
    Abstract: Route provisioning techniques for an autonomous driving feature of a vehicle include receiving a user-generated route generated by a user using a second map database that differs from a first map database of the vehicle that stores a road graph specifying nodes and links representative of a map of roads proximate to the vehicle and specifies an array of geo-points between a current geo-location of the vehicle and a final geo-location for the vehicle, determining, using the road graph maintained by the first map database, a set of valid routes from the current geo-location to the final geo-location ordered based on relative likelihood, determining a best route from the set of valid routes based on a weighted comparison between each route of the set of valid routes and the user-generated route, and utilizing the selected route for control of the autonomous driving feature.

  • Patent number: 11956203
    Abstract: A method by a software defined networking (SDN) controller to configure a switch to perform translation module bypass in a container orchestration system. The method includes receiving a translation rule for a flow from a load balancer, sending translation module bypass instructions to a switch in response to receiving the translation rule for the flow, where the translation module bypass instructions include instructions for the switch to stop sending packets belonging to the flow to the translation module and to apply a network address translation specified by the translation rule for the flow to the packets belonging to the flow, and send an indication to the load balancer that the packets belonging to the flow are to bypass the translation module to cause the load balancer to disable timeout processing for the flow in the translation module.

  • Patent number: 11956309
    Abstract: A method for intermediary client reconnection to a preferred server in a high availability server cluster. The method includes monitoring a persistent connection of a logical connection to a preferred server to identify an unavailability of the preferred server, establishing a temporary persistent connection for the logical connection to an available server to replace an unavailable preferred server, prompting attempts to reconnect to the preferred server at intervals, and providing a connection switching pool and simultaneously re-establishing a persistent connection with the preferred server for the logical connection using the connection switching pool while terminating the temporary persistent connection to the available server. The connection switching pool and a main connection pool used by the persistent connection allow for simultaneously maintaining two connections to different servers in a same server cluster for the logical connection.

  • Patent number: 11949679
    Abstract: Distinguishing between functional tracking domains and nonfunctional tracking domains on a host web page. In particular, a list of known tracking domains that load content into host web pages may be received. This list of tracking domains may include tracking domains that are functional and tracking domains that are nonfunctional. The tracking domains that are functional may be determined by evaluating various behaviors and characteristics of the tracking domains. Once functional tracking domains have been determined, these functional tracking domains may be allowed, and other tracking domains may be blocked from loading content onto host web pages thereby preserving the functionality of the web pages.

  • Patent number: 11949641
    Abstract: An email verification system is described. The email verification system stores names and associated email addresses. An email is received that has a sender name and a sender email address. If the email verification system determines that the sender name matches a stored name but the sender email address does not match with an email address associated with the stored name, the email is prevented from being transmitted to its recipient unless the email is verified as being legitimate. The email verification system transmits a request to verify the email via a configured verification method. If a response is received that verifies the email as legitimate, the email is delivered; otherwise the email is blocked.
