Prevention Of Unauthorized Use Of Data Including Prevention Of Piracy, Privacy Violations, Or Unauthorized Data Modification Patents (Class 726/26)
  • Patent number: 11521200
    Abstract: Some examples of the present disclosure relate to generating artificially intelligent entities represented on a blockchain using a non-fungible token (NFT). In one such example, a system can generate an NFT on a blockchain. The NFT can represent an artificially intelligent entity. The system can also generate a personality dataset on the blockchain, the personality dataset describing personality characteristics of the artificially intelligent entity. The system can then correlate the NFT to the personality dataset, thereby assigning the personality characteristics to the artificially intelligent entity. Once generated, the artificially intelligent entity may reside in a virtual ecosystem in which it can perform tasks and learn over time.

  • Patent number: 11520925
    Abstract: Techniques are described that eliminate storage of primary account numbers (PANs) by third-party cloud applications executed in external networks. An example method includes receiving a query from an external network that includes a card reference number (CRN) and converting the CRN into a primary account number (PAN). The method includes modifying the query to include the PAN in place of the CRN and performing a service call to retrieve a record responsive to the query from a master account database using the PAN. The method includes, when the record includes the PAN, converting the PAN into the CRN via the tokenization server. Additionally, the method includes adding the record with the CRN to a query response and transmitting the query response to the external network.

  • Patent number: 11475165
    Abstract: System and methods are disclosed for redacting analyzing unstructured data in a request for data associated with a data subject to determine whether the unstructured data is relevant to the request. The relevancy of pieces of the unstructured data may be determined by determining a categorization for each such piece of unstructured data and comparing them to known personal data associated with the data subject having the same categorization. Pieces of the unstructured data that do not match known personal data having the same categorization are redacted from the request before the request is processed.

  • Patent number: 11477241
    Abstract: Systems and methods for selectively disabling anti-replay security checks based on a defined network policy that can override the globally-defined defaults for specific network sessions are provided. A network security device protecting a private network receives a packet associated with a network traffic flow between a source computing device and an internal destination computing device. The network security device identifies an anti-replay policy associated with the network traffic flow and whether the anti-replay policy is intended to override a global anti-replay policy of the network security device. When the identifying is affirmative, the network security device performs one or more anti-replay security checks in accordance with the anti-replay policy. When the identifying is negative, the network security device performs the one or more anti-replay security checks in accordance with the global anti-replay policy.

  • Patent number: 11475375
    Abstract: A system and method for using machine learning classifiers to auto-approve or auto-escalate unknown events is disclosed. The system has queues for receiving a stream of data concerning the unknown events; for storing data concerning escalated events believed to be adverse; and for storing data concerning approved events believed to be innocuous. When software instructions are executed, a device will retrieve data concerning an event from the first queue; vectorize and enrich the data; classify the vectorized, enriched data by a first machine learning model to decide whether to auto-escalate the data concerning the event to the second queue for review by a first human reviewer; and classify the vectorized, enriched data by a second machine learning model to decide whether to auto-approve the data concerning the event to the third queue.

  • Patent number: 11470055
    Abstract: Aspects of the disclosure relate to data transmission with encryption of protected data. A computing platform may separate, via a computing device and in electronic data associated with a user, protected data from non-protected attribute data. Subsequently, the computing platform may generate, for the protected data, an encryption key. Then, the computing platform may modify the electronic data by replacing the protected data with the encryption key. Then, the computing platform may store, in a database, an association between the user, the protected data, and the encryption key. Subsequently, the computing platform may provide, via a network and to an external vendor, the modified electronic data comprising the encryption key and the non-protected attribute data.

  • Patent number: 11469878
    Abstract: The disclosed exemplary embodiments include computer-implemented systems, apparatuses, and processes that perform homomorphic computations on encrypted third-party data within a distributed computing environment. For example, an apparatus receives a homomorphic public key and encrypted transaction data characterizing an exchange of data from a computing system, and encrypts modelling data associated with a first predictive model using the homomorphic public key. The apparatus may perform homomorphic computations that apply the first predictive model to the encrypted transaction data in accordance with the encrypted first modelling data, and transmit an encrypted first output of the homomorphic computations to the computing system, which may decrypt the encrypted first output using a homomorphic private key and generate decrypted output data indicative of a predicted likelihood that the data exchange represents fraudulent activity.

  • Patent number: 11461473
    Abstract: Systems and methods for controlling the exposure of data privacy elements are provided. The systems and methods may generate an artificial profile model. The artificial profile model may include a constraint for generating new artificial profiles. A signal may be received indicating that a computing device is requesting access to a network location. One or more data privacy elements associated with the computing device can be detected. An artificial profile can be determined for the computing device. The artificial profile may be usable to identify the computing device. The one or more data privacy elements may be automatically modified according to the constraint included in the artificial profile model. The method may include generating a new artificial profile for the computing device. The new artificial profile may include the modified one or more data privacy elements. The new artificial profile may mask the computing device from being identified.

  • Patent number: 11461798
    Abstract: There are provided systems and methods for monitoring device application usage for completion of checkout data processing. A computing device may be utilized to perform one or more actions while utilising an application executable by the device, including a browser application or merchant application that allows a user to view an online marketplace and purchase items in a transaction. Prior to checkout and transaction processing, the device may be used to browse items, and items may be added to a shopping cart. However, the device may not finish electronic transaction processing for the items, for example, where the device does not enter transaction processing details and/or navigates away from the items or cart. A service provider may utilize past actions to determine whether the action indicates that the device is abandoning use of the application, including electronic transaction processing. If so, an incentive may be provided to continue use.
