  • Patent number: 11354450
    Abstract: A non-transitory computer readable storage medium has instructions executed by a processor to define a parent application executing on a secure runtime hardware resource. A state snapshot of the secure runtime hardware resource is maintained. A fork request for a child application to be derived from the parent application is received. An updated state snapshot of the state snapshot is formed. The child application is instantiated. Encrypted state is transferred from the parent application to the child application. The encrypted state is used to derive an encryption key shared by the parent application and the child application. The encrypted state in the child application is decrypted using the encryption key to spawn an independent child application operative as an additional secure runtime instance. The parent application on the secure runtime hardware resource and the child application operative as the additional secure runtime instance are executed independently.

  • Patent number: 11341230
    Abstract: Described is a system for maintaining dual-party authentication requirements for data retention compliance in systems with remote access components. When administering a data retention policy, an operating system component may require a dual-party authentication mechanism to prevent data deletion, while a different authentication mechanism may control access to the remote access controller. Access to the remote access controller by a single privileged user, however, may enable overriding or compromising the retention lock compliance implemented by the operating system. Accordingly, the system may tie the dual-party authentication requirement to the remote access controller authentication mechanism.

  • Patent number: 11341572
    Abstract: The invention relates to systems and methods for distributing market data. In one implementation, the system may generate a new encryption key at each market data update, and use that key to encrypt each market participant's data in that update before it is sent. Among other factors, characteristics of modern computer networks may cause participants to be sent (and to receive) their encrypted data in that update at different times. After the participants have all been sent their data in that update the system may then simultaneously transmit to those participants the key that will enable them to decipher their data. In an implementation, the key may be transmitted via a multicast transport protocol which can be used to ensure all recipients receive it at the same time. In this manner the invention may ensure that although participants receive their data in a given update at different times, they are unable to decipher that data until substantially the same time.

  • Patent number: 11328082
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for data processing are described. Some database systems may support differential privacy for encrypted data. For example, a database may store user data as ciphertext. A system may receive a statistical query for the user data and may identify a relevant differential privacy mechanism. The system may transform the query to operate on encrypted data while including a noisification function based on the mechanism. The system may execute the transformed query at the database, involving adding noise to the query result according to the noisification function without decrypting the data. For example, the system may leverage homomorphic encryption techniques to inject the noise while the data remains encrypted. The database may return the noisified, encrypted query results, which the system may decrypt for statistical analysis. By applying differential privacy on the encrypted data, the system may avoid exposing any private user information throughout the process.

  • Patent number: 11283720
    Abstract: A network appliance can maintain an active set indicating active backends for a load balanced network service. To monitor the health of the backends, the network appliance can transmit a network packet to a backend that is one of the active backends in the active set and can receive a response packet responsive to the network packet. An invariant hash can be calculated from the response packet using fields that are the same when the response is a normal response (e.g. not an error response) from a healthy backend. If the packet indicates an error or is otherwise indicative of a problem, the network appliance can determine, using the invariant hash, that the response packet does not match an expected result associated with the backend. Based on the error, the number of network packets resulting in errors, etc., the backend can be removed from the active set.

For example, various vehicle-to-everything (V2X) transmissions may be unencrypted, and a vehicle may be expected to periodically change one or more identifiers it uses for various communication services. Privacy may be enhanced, for example, via encryption key roll-over, as well as roll-over of one or more other identifiers associated with a UE that may potentially be used by an observer to track the UE. The UE may transmit a message that includes an updated lower layer identifier (e.g., a layer-2 (L2) identifier) to another UE in a V2X unicast communications link, which may trigger a change in identifiers of a set of identifiers and an updated security context. All or a portion of the message may be encrypted.

  • Patent number: 11210007
    Abstract: Techniques are provided for deduplicating encrypted data. For example, a device has data to store in an encrypted state within a remote data store. A key is used to encrypt the data to create encrypted data. The data is hashed to create hashed data and the encrypted data is hashed to create hashed encrypted data. A probabilistic data structure of the data is generated. The key is encrypted based upon the data to create an encrypted key. The encrypted data is transmitted to the remote data store, along with metadata comprising the hashed data, the hashed encrypted data, the probabilistic data structure, and the encrypted key. The metadata may be used to implement deduplication for subsequent requests, to store data within the remote data store, with respect to the encrypted data.

  • Patent number: 11178079
    Abstract: Exemplary embodiments relate to techniques for improving the speed and rendering quality of an image (e.g., a JPEG), particularly in an end-to-end encrypted environment. The image may be analyzed on the sending-client side and the image data may be broken into a thumbnail and a full-quality image, where the full-quality image data relies on the thumbnail data to render a high-quality image. The image is uploaded to a blob store, and a message is sent to the receiving client with image information. At the recipient side, the JPEG image data is retrieved from the blob store and the thumbnail is first rendered. Subsequently, as the remainder of the image data is received at the receiving client, the image is updated. Consequently, images are rendered faster, and the thumbnail can be automatically downloaded so that a user can determine if they wish to download the full image.
