  • Patent number: 10721625
    Abstract: A universal identity and physical presence detection in the form of a personal, universal transponder signal is described. This signal allows a user to interact with devices in the user's environment without having to download vendor-specific apps, set up vendor-specific accounts or be limited to a siloed eco-system of a manufacturer brand. The universal signal representing an individual allows for devices and software to detect and query the beacon transmitting the signal for information relating to the user and augmented onto the physical environment. This provides a more personalized, efficient, and, in some instances, secure experience for the user. Embodiments focus on minimizing user workload to allow for seamless interactions with her environment. Various embodiments provide a truly universal signal for all users and devices to interact, wherein all parties benefit from a seamless and natural way of interacting in the physical world.

  • Patent number: 10706051
    Abstract: A method for referencing and updating objects in a shared resource environment. A reference counter counts is incremented for every use of an object subtype in a session and decremented for every release of an object subtype in a session. A session counter is incremented upon the first instance of fetching an object type into a session cache and decremented upon having no instances of the object type in use in the session. When both the reference counter and the session counter are zero, the object type may be removed from the cache. When the object type needs to be updated, it is cloned into a local cache, and changes are made on the local copy. The global cache is then locked to all other users, the original object type is detached, and the cloned object type is swapped into the global cache, after which the global cache in unlocked.

    Abstract: Multiple deception techniques utilized to mislead malicious entities that attempt to gather information associated with a computing device are implemented by changing a single result. In one aspect, requests for screen captures are intercepted and it is determined whether the requests are triggered due to user interaction (e.g., pressing a button and/or key) and/or received from an authorized application/device. If determined that the requests are not triggered due to user interaction and/or are received from an unauthorized application/device, a response comprising one of several pre-prepared or dynamically generated screen captures that are embedded (and/or appended) with misleading information (e.g., fake credentials, fake documents marked as important/hidden, etc.) is generated. Applications that attempt to utilize the misleading information can be flagged as malware.

  • Patent number: 10139933
    Abstract: A display device control pen comprises a pen body and at least one detachable accessory. The detachable accessory comprises an electronic component. The pen body is detachably assembled with the detachable accessory. The pen body comprises at least one variable-voltage circuit, a signal generating unit and a signal transmitter. When the detachable accessory is assembled to the pen body, the electronic component is electrically connected to the variable-voltage circuit and varies a voltage value of the variable-voltage circuit. The signal generating unit is coupled to the variable-voltage circuit and generates a color signal based on the varied voltage value. The signal transmitter is coupled to the signal generating unit and transmits the color signal to the display device, such that the display device displays a color on a trace formed by the pen body according to the color signal.

  • Patent number: 10129247
    Abstract: A behavioral characteristics authentication system and method (“BCA system”) that facilitates authentication of the identity of a user, registrant, or applicant of a website, application, or other accessible computer resource using a verification process that incorporates behavioral characteristics. In operation, the BCA system compares a single user's behavior with their previous behavior, a user's behavior with behavior generally attributed to non-fraudulent behavior, or a user's behavior with behavior generally attributed to fraudulent behavior. The population of other users that a user's behavior is compared with may be selected to have similar demographic or other characteristics as the user. By analyzing various behavioral characteristics associated with legitimate or fraudulent multi-factor authentication attempts, the BCA system adds another layer of security to online transactions.
