  • Patent number: 11127489
    Abstract: A device may provide a user interface with which to provide an action plan. The device may detect one or more interactions with the user interface associated with identifying one or more portions of the action plan. The action plan may include information regarding a treatment plan for a patient. The device may parse the action plan to identify a set of prompts and/or a set of actions that are to be performed based on a set of triggers. The set of prompts may be related to a clinically validated questionnaire for a particular condition. The device may detect a particular trigger, of the set of triggers, after parsing the action plan. The device may provide, for display via the user interface, a particular prompt, of the set of prompts, or transmit data to perform a particular action, of the set of actions, based on detecting the particular trigger.

  • Patent number: 11126551
    Abstract: Systems and methods are described, and an example system includes logic that implements a user interface and that accepts an indicator of data, and upon identifying the data is restricted access, receives via the interface attributes of tasks, and of the user, and determines a task-user attribute matrix based on the user input. The logic sends a data-coefficient request to access modules, receives a reply message that includes sensitivity metadata coefficient, a privacy metadata coefficient, a combinability metadata coefficient, and a security metadata coefficient. The logic constructs, using a content of the reply message, a metadata coefficient matrix. The logic applies a dynamic access evaluation that is based on the task-user attribute matrix and the metadata coefficient matrix and, upon a positive evaluation, accesses the restricted-access data and provides the accessed data to a data cache. Optionally, the data cache feeds a system of system operational analytics.

  • Patent number: 11120452
    Abstract: Provided are arrangements requiring additional multi-factor authentication (MFA) in certain instances of dynamic virtual transaction token (e.g., virtual credit card token) generation via a browser extension. In the arrangements, the browser extension, when executed, may cause a browser to require a user to complete an initial multi-factor authentication (MFA). Once the browser extension has a record indicating a prior valid initial MFA for the user, the user allowed to request a transaction token. The browser extension may allow issuance of the transaction token upon an indication that the value needed does not exceed the predetermined value.

  • Patent number: 11108546
    Abstract: A blockchain database employs cryptography and other methods to implement and protect a distributed, publicly-amendable ledger. Transactions in a blockchain ledger are intentionally anonymous; however, there are cases where it would be useful to be able to verify or disprove a claim of identity of a contributor of a blockchain transaction. Biometrics can be used to link a human being to digital information using their unique physical traits in a way that is analogous to a handwritten or digital signature. An exemplary embodiment disclosed herein describes methods to create and store data in a blockchain transaction such that it can be used in the future to biometrically verify the identity of the contributor of the transaction, and use encoded biometric data to determine whether the blockchain transaction was created or not created by a particular individual.

  • Patent number: 11042625
    Abstract: A system for visual password input. The system for visual password input includes an electronic device having a display, wherein the electronic device further includes a camera. A processor disposed within the electronic device includes a non-transitory computer readable memory having a logic thereon, wherein the logic provides a login screen to the display, wherein the login screen prevents access to the electronic device until an authentication signal is verified. The authentication signal comprises an image capture received by the camera, wherein the image capture is compared to an image data of a password object stored on the non-transitory computer readable memory and analyzed to determine whether the image capture matches the image data of the password object within a confidence interval. Access is then provided to the electronic device if the image capture matches the image data of the password object.

  • Patent number: 11036890
    Abstract: Methods and computer systems execute biometric operations in parallel. The performance of a biometric operation includes receiving a job request to perform the biometric operation. The job request includes input data, identifies a database to be used in the performance of the biometric operation, and specifies a function to be performed. The biometric operation is restructured as one or more tasks. A number of entries in the database is assigned to each of the one or more tasks. An independent worker process is generated for each different core of the multi-core processor. Each task of the one or more tasks is assigned to one of the worker processes. Results produced by each worker process assigned one of the one or more tasks are collected. A result of the biometric operation based on the collected results is reported.

  • Patent number: 11007976
    Abstract: A method and system controls access to an authentication-dependent or authentication-conditional function of a vehicle, via a smart device or smartphone. For the authentication, an authentication feature of the smart device is compared with a stored authentication feature of the device, and authentication is granted if they are identical or sufficiently correspond, the authentication is subjected to an approval process by a user of the smart device, in which it is determined whether the user approves the authentication or not. The authentication and the approval process have at least one channel in a protected region of the smart device and/or are themselves embedded in the protected region, which lies outside a region of the operating system of the applications and/or the apps of the smart device. The function of the device is executed when there is an authentication and an approval.

  • Patent number: 11005660
    Abstract: In some embodiments, encrypted biometric data are stored in advance in a device that is possessed or carried by a user (for example, a smartcard, a communication terminal, or the like) based on a public key certificate, and a user authentication (first user authentication) is performed by a biometric matching in the device. A public key certificate matching the encrypted biometric data is used to perform a user authentication (second user authentication) for a transaction authorization in a service providing server. According to some embodiments, one time password, keystroke, dynamic signature, location information, and the like are employed as additional authentication factors to tighten the security of the first and second user authentications. According to some embodiments, an authentication mechanism including the first user authentication and the second user authentication is applied to control an access to the IoT device.
