Access Control Patents (Class 726/27)
  • Patent number: 11954225
    Abstract: An example system places control and choice of managing the usage of private data into the hands of the users themselves. In some examples, the disclosed data privacy management system allows users to select preferences on how their private data is used by the business, both internally and externally. For example, the system may present users with one or more selectable options regarding how the user's private data is used. The system may then use the user's data for purposes that are in line with the user's selected preferences.

  • Patent number: 11856117
    Abstract: An autonomous distributed wise area network (AD-WAN) includes several nodes, where each node connects a local area network to an open wide area network, and provides tunnels over the open wide area network to other nodes in the AD-WAN so that computing resources behind each node can communicate as if they were located on a common intranet. Each node has a blockchain wallet and receives updates to a private permissioned blockchain ledger for that AD-WAN. The updates are provided by a control node. Set up, and subsequent change to the AD-WAN are commenced via a customer portal which provides order information to the control node, where the control node processes the order information and generates a blockchain update that informs the affected nodes in the AD-WAN as to what changes are to be made. As a result, the blockchain provides both control plane and order management operation of the AD-WAN.

  • Patent number: 11724399
    Abstract: A mobile robot is configured for operation in a commercial or industrial setting, such as an office building or retail store. The mobile robot can have a motorized base and a robot body on the motorized base, the robot body including a rotatable ring that rotates horizontally around the robot body. A mechanical arm that can contract and extend relative to the robot body is coupled to the rotatable ring and performs a plurality of actions. A controller of the mobile robot provides instructions to the rotatable ring and the mechanical arm and can cause the mechanical arm to open a door, take an elevator to move to a different floor, and test whether a door is locked properly.

  • Patent number: 11720697
    Abstract: A method for providing network access to technical data files is provided herein. The method includes receiving a technical data file via a computer network, and securely storing the technical data file in a network-accessible, access-restricted technical data repository. An unstructured policy document corresponding to the technical data file is computer-analyzed with a previously-trained machine-learning model configured to extract one or more policy attributes from unstructured policy documents. Extracted policy attributes are stored in a network-accessible policy library. A user request to access the technical data file is received via the computer network. One or more attributes of the user are recognized.

  • Patent number: 11711400
    Abstract: Systems and methods for providing controlled access to a system by a user device include receiving, from a user device, a request including a current context. The method includes receiving a request for access to a computing resource, the request including a current context, the current context defining a user space and a resource space. The user device evaluates the current context against a security policy. The user device determines that the user device is permitted to access the computing resource based on the request in response to the evaluating the current context against the security policy. In response to determining that the user device is permitted to access the computing resource, accessing the computing resource as requested.

  • Patent number: 11711375
    Abstract: The present technology can provide a mechanism for providing a team member transfer interface to an administrator user for transferring team member user accounts from one team to another and also a mechanism for transferring the team member user accounts, such as by switching an assignment of one or more user accounts from a first team to another in a single atomic action. The transferring of the team member user accounts may also depend on passing a set of validation checks that check for inconsistencies that could cause an error in the transfer, and also updating access and privileges associated with being members of certain teams.

  • Patent number: 11710051
    Abstract: Establishing event-specific trust through data-centric mediation by: generating a mediated covenant of association as an instance of trust among a plurality of entities at an association layer of a multi-layer computer security system; constructing a security model enforceable by the multi-layer computer security system that expresses node-node semantic relationships as links among nodes of the model representing protectable computing resources; and producing an event-specific security model via informatic convolution of elements of the covenant with elements of the security model, so that the event-specific security model is operable to constrain a computing action among computing resources represented by the plurality of entities.

  • Patent number: 11676103
    Abstract: Encryption is performed at the field level within a data object, in response to an encryption indicator. Encrypted fields are nulled or zeroed out and the encrypted values are stored in encryption metadata with a path identifying the locations of the encrypted fields. An encrypted data key is appended with a decryption identifier and stored in the encryption metadata. The encrypted data object may be reformatted while encrypted. The encrypted data key is extracted from the encryption metadata and the decryption identifier is used to identify a master key used to decrypt the encrypted data key. The data key is used to decrypt the encrypted values and the decrypted values are stored in the fields identified by the paths.

  • Patent number: 11671492
    Abstract: Described herein are technologies directed to multipart upload. A cluster coherent unique identifier for a multipart upload can be generated by creating a leaf in a B-tree. The leaf in the B-tree can comprise a key, and the key can comprise an upload identifier and a group identifier associated with a group of multipart uploads. A parts directory can be created for the multipart upload, wherein elements of the parts directory can be identified using the group identifier and the upload identifier. Upload parts can be transmitted from a client device to a server device, and stored in the parts directory. To complete the multipart upload, the upload parts can be concatenated and stored at a target location.

  • Patent number: 11652850
    Abstract: A system for real time federation of file permissions for digital content protection is described. The system automatically protects the files as the files leave application boundaries and then ensures that the files can only be used as per the permissions defined on those files while they were inside the application. The system also provides real time federation of policies with the application that generated the file and automatic protection of files as the files leave the application boundary. The system thus creates a single integral platform that is easy to access as well as reliable, and provides ease-of-use, advanced technology, and connectivity that delivers automated file protection.
