    Abstract: Method and system are provided for user authentication using original and modified images. The method includes receiving an original image for a user, where the original image is a private image that meets certain configured criteria. The method uses a pre-trained Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) model to extract one or more image features of the original image and feeds the extracted image feature into a Generative Adversarial Network (GAN) image generator to realistically modify the extracted image feature to generate a modified image. The method authenticates a user based on recognition of a presented original image or a presented modified image.

The credential store definition includes access information to enable access to the remote credentials store. A credentials object is created in an internal database based on a credentials object definition. The credentials object identifies a security credential to retrieve from the remote credentials store to access an external resource. At runtime, a request to access the external resource is received, and based on receiving the request, the security credentials identified by the credentials object are retrieved from the remote credential store using the access information. The retrieved security credential is provided to a processing component to access the external resource.

  • Patent number: 11722309
    Abstract: An apparatus and method for performing authenticated communications that includes receiving, by a gateway device, a password associated with an application. The gateway device is in communication with a plurality of access control devices associated with the application. Access to each device in a cluster formed by the gateway device and the plurality of access control devices requires a user authentication associated with the password. The gateway device generates a plurality of different matching pairs of salt values and hash values and deletes the password. In addition, the gateway device transmits different sets of mismatched pairs of the salt values and the hash values to at least two devices of the cluster for storage. The user authentication is based on a salt value and a hash value from the plurality of different matching pairs of salt values and hash values stored at two different devices of the cluster.

  • Patent number: 11694695
    Abstract: A method of speaker identification comprises receiving an audio signal representing speech; performing a first voice biometric process on the audio signal to attempt to identify whether the speech is the speech of an enrolled speaker; and, if the first voice biometric process makes an initial determination that the speech is the speech of an enrolled user, performing a second voice biometric process on the audio signal to attempt to identify whether the speech is the speech of the enrolled speaker. The second voice biometric process is selected to be more discriminative than the first voice biometric process.

  • Patent number: 11688257
    Abstract: A surveillance monitoring system may use a camera to detect any viewing faces visible within viewing sight of a monitor and determine whether the detected viewing faces belong to authorized individuals who are authorized to view video surveillance footage on the monitor or if any of the detected viewing faces belong to individuals who are not authorized to view video surveillance footage on the monitor. When the detected viewing faces belong only to authorized individuals, the surveillance monitoring system continues to display the video surveillance footage that includes identifiable faces without anonymizing the identifiable faces. When the detected viewing faces also include unauthorized individuals, the surveillance monitoring system may continue to display the video surveillance footage, but the surveillance monitoring system may automatically anonymize one or more of the identifiable faces seen in the video surveillance footage.
