  • Patent number: 11403395
    Abstract: A method of using a Dynamic Rule Engine (DRE) with an application. At runtime of the application, the application determines that a trigger point has been reached. The DRE identifies one or more rules associated with the trigger point. Each of the one or more rules defines one or more conditions, and each condition is associated with one or more properties. For each of the one or more rules, the DRE evaluates the one or more conditions defined in the rule. Evaluating a condition includes determining a current value of each of the one or more properties associated with the condition, and comparing the one or more current values to one or more predetermined values. Based on the comparison, the DRE determines whether one or more actions are to be performed. If the one or more actions are determined to be performed, the application performs the one or more actions.

  • Patent number: 11398911
    Abstract: In modern object-oriented programming, programs are written using typed objects like classes and instances that interact with one another via rules of composition, inheritance, encapsulation, message passing, and polymorphism. Some embodiments described herein can include a method for tokenizing such modern objects that maintains their interactive properties on a blockchain. It improves upon, and diverges from, the smart contract model used mainly on account-based blockchains today to create a generally-programmable token system that is native to UTXO-based blockchains, where individually-owned software objects interact with other software objects owned by other individuals. These tokenized objects are called jigs. Jigs, an abstraction like objects, enable applications to build their own digital assets that interact with other jigs from other applications. Jogs enable users to own their data as tokens and use their data independent of any one application's complete control.

    Abstract: A resource security integration platform may be configured to establish API integration between software applications and various APIs. The security platform may be configured to register for authorization with multiple APIs in order to communicate with those API such that so that the source applications do not need to authenticate or communicate with the API themselves. A source request is received from a source system including an indication of a resource and an address of an application programming interface of a destination system. A definition of the application programming interface is determined based on the address. Authorization for accessing the destination system is obtained using the definition. Then an interface request message is generated and sent it to the destination system using the authorization. The interface response message is received from the destination system and response data based on the interface response message is sent to the source system.

  • Patent number: 11361086
    Abstract: Methods and systems are disclosed for activating data encryption at rest in a storage device server in a cloud storage. In particular, an encryption orchestrator orchestrates activation processes through encryption controllers that controls policies and privileges to access data in storage device servers. To reduce a risk of a data loss and time loss in activations, the encryption controller pre-checks a storage device server for anomalies in configurations in network connectivity, encryption keys, and security certificates before starting the activation. Furthermore, the encryption controller performs a health-check of the storage device servers to detect anomalies that require restarting the storage device servers. The health-check reduces a risk of data loss when the storage device servers become unable restart itself. User interface tools may be provided to visually identify and manage encryption statuses and policies of the encryption controllers, the storage device servers, and data storage devices.

In a market for a particular type of instrument, electronic data including buy orders and sell orders are received from a plurality of traders. Each buy order has an associated bid price and each sell order has an associated offer price. A determination is made of whether the particular trading order is an outlying trading order by electronically determining whether the particular trading order differs from at least one comparison price by more than a threshold value. If it is determined that the particular trading is an outlying trading order, a restrictive action is taken regarding one or more trading orders. For example, if a trader subsequently submits another trading order that would trade with the outlying trading order, an electronic alert message may be sent to the trader and the subsequent trading order may be prevented from trading with the outlying trading order at least temporarily.

A request comprising input data and electronically signed using the temporary security credentials is sent to a web Application Programming Interface (API) management system of the cloud computing service platform. The request, when received by the web API management system, causes the web API management system to invoke external functionality provided by the remote software component at the web endpoint with respect to the input data. A response comprising a result of invoking the external functionality is received from the web API management system, and the result data is processed according to the query.

  • Patent number: 11243964
    Abstract: Systems and methods for query decomposition for scalability of continuous query processing are disclosed. In some examples, it is determined whether a query is fully stateful. If it is, the query may be divided into two functions, an aggregate function and a global function. The aggregate functions may be distributed across multiple distributed nodes and executed in parallel. The global function may then receive the results from the distributed nodes and join the results to achieve the fully stateful result.

  • Patent number: 11221881
    Abstract: Various embodiments discussed herein enable intelligent resource leak detection and associated user interface. In some aspects, if a kernel sends a tracing event (e.g., an ETW event) after a process or application has been requested to be shut down but before the process has actually been shut down, a resource leak can be detected. This is because the application should have requested the reference indicator to be removed in memory before the tracing event, as opposed to the kernel acting alone without an application request to remove the reference indicator. If a reference indicator has not been requested to be removed by the time this tracing event occurs, then it is indicative of the application never having sent a request to remove the reference indicator, which is indicative of a resource leak.

  • Patent number: 11216603
    Abstract: A computing system receives a request for a computer-generated design of an experiment. A design space is defined by candidate inputs for each factor of the experiment. The system receives a disallowed combination indication indicating a user-defined disallowed combination for the design space. The disallowed combination constrains a first set of values from a first set of candidate inputs from being assigned to the first factor if the second factor is assigned one of a second set of values from a second set of candidate inputs. The system determines additional constraint(s) on computer generation of the design. The system evaluates if a user-defined model can be generated according to the disallowed combination and the constraint(s). The system generates a computer suggested modification of the user-defined model such that the design can be generated according to the computer suggested modification.

  • Patent number: 11194640
    Abstract: Provided is a validation framework for modelling possible failures that might occur when an orchestrated transaction calls external services to ensure that error handling and reporting is robust and well designed. The disclosed techniques ensure that no changes are necessary to either the code making a call or the services that might be called. The techniques are not limited to web servers and REST APIs as they may be used to test and validate any kind of system that employs well defined APIs. The claimed subject matter, or “validation framework” may be added to an existing API or created as a new module that acts as a proxy server in a non-micro service type of system. Although described with respect to a gateway-API service, the claimed subject matter is equally applicable to other systems that process orchestrated transactions.
