  • Patent number: 11902305
    Abstract: Method and systems for detecting and mitigating a malicious bot. Threat information is obtained, the threat information identifying one or more indicators of compromise (IOC) corresponding to suspected or known malicious network traffic. A control list (CL) corresponding to the threat information is generated, the CL describing rules for identifying network flows to be logged in a network log. The network log identifying the network flows is obtained and a suspect network flow identified by both the threat information and the network log is identified. An address corresponding to the suspect network flow is identified and the address is correlated with a user identifier. A notification is issued to a user associated with the user identifier, the notification indicating a suspected existence of a malicious bot.

    Abstract: A method for authentication data transmission and a system thereof are provided. The method is operated in a computer system that is connected to a biometric device, and a secure channel is established there-between according to a security protocol. The computer system can receive encrypted biometric feature data from the biometric device based on a request. In a secure environment built in the computer system, the biometric feature data is decrypted and biometric features can be extracted. A comparison result is generated after comparing the biometric features with feature data in a database. The comparison result can be transmitted to the biometric device. The comparison result is then encrypted in the biometric device according to the security protocol. The biometric device can therefore transmit the encrypted comparison result to the computer system via the secure channel.

  • Patent number: 11829274
    Abstract: An example method for monitoring operations of a business organization electronic computing device includes executing a checklist on a monitoring electronic computing device to obtain an operational status of an application being implemented on the business organization electronic computing device. Data is received from the business organization electronic computing device regarding the operational status of the application being implemented on the business organization electronic computing device. When a determination is made that the data identifies an operational threat for the business organization electronic computing device, an action is proposed or implemented to remediate the operational threat. An implementation of the checklist is adjusted based on an effectiveness of the action to remediate the operational threat.

  • Patent number: 11830066
    Abstract: Disclosed herein is an identity network that can provide a universal, digital identity for users that can be used to authenticate the user by an identity provider for relying parties. The identity network receives a request from a relying party that includes deep linking to an identity provider selected by the user. The request specifies the user as well as any other information about the user the relying party is requesting. A service of the identity network launches the application for the identity provider on the user's device using a software development kit. The user can log into the identity provider's application, which validates the user and provides the user authentication/validation and information about the user to the identity network. The identity network can then provide the indication of the user's authentication and the user information to the relying party.

  • Patent number: 11831619
    Abstract: The disclosed computer-implemented method may include receiving an input from a user identifying specified persons that are to be included in a concealed list of persons. The specified persons may be unaware of their inclusion in the concealed list of persons. The method may also include generating the concealed list of persons and determining that a potential participant from the user's concealed list of persons has selected the user in a corresponding concealed list of persons that belongs to the potential participant and, in response to the determination, the method may include creating a private conversation instance that is unique to the user and the potential participant. The generated private conversation instance may include an interaction interface that allows the user and the potential participant to interact in a confidential manner. Various other methods, systems, and computer-readable media are also disclosed.

  • Patent number: 11818175
    Abstract: Access privileges of at least one identity to resources are adjusted within an authorization system of a computing environment. Over a detection period, accesses by the identity to the resources are detected and a usage score is computed as a usage function of a measure of use by the identity of access privilege(s) it has been granted to at least one of the resources relative to a measure of a set of possible grantable privileges. In accordance with a least privilege security policy, and according to the usage score, the set of access privileges granted to the identity may then be adjusted.

  • Patent number: 11816431
    Abstract: Computer implemented method and a system for auto completion of text based on the context associated with the text. The computer implemented method includes steps of receiving input text, identifying a certain context associated with the input text from multiple predefined contexts, by feeding the input text into a context-prediction component of a machine learning model that predicts the certain context, selecting a certain context-specific component of the machine learning model from multiple context-specific components according to the identified certain context, feeding the input text into the selected context-specific component that outputs autocomplete text associated with the identified certain context. The context-specific components are each trained to generate autocompleted text associated with a respective context pre-defined for the respective context-specific component.

  • Patent number: 11816187
    Abstract: At least one processor may capture a plurality of image snapshots containing information about a monitored system at a plurality of sequential times, each snapshot having the same vertical and horizontal dimensions. The processor may label the plurality of image snapshots as indicative of an event that took place in the monitored system, may receive additional data describing the event, may cluster the labeled plurality of image snapshots and the additional data using at least one machine learning clustering algorithm, and may merge the clustered plurality of image snapshots and the clustered additional data into merged data. The processors may create a model by processing the merged data using at least one neural network, the model being configured to detect future events of a same type as the event in the monitored system. The processor may store the model in a memory in communication with the processor.

  • Patent number: 11811782
    Abstract: Structured access to volunteered private data disclosed. Access can be based on security and privacy constraint information (SPCI) that can be selected by the party volunteering the private data. The volunteered data can be stored in a protected portion of a public network. The SPCI can be correlated to the volunteered data. In response to receiving a request for access to the volunteered data, an attribute of the request can be determined to satisfy one or more rules related to the SPCI prior to facilitating access to a version of a portion of the volunteered data. The version of the portion of the volunteered data can be a redaction of the portion of the volunteered data. The version of the portion of the volunteered data can be aggregated with other portions of other volunteered data determined to satisfy corresponding SPCI related rules.

  • Patent number: 11803639
    Abstract: Examples disclosed herein relate to integrity monitoring of a computing system using a kernel that can update its own code. Trust of state information is verified. Kernel code and module code are loaded into memory that is accessible to a device separate from a processor that loads the kernel code and module code. A measurement module is verified and loaded into memory. The state information can correspond to multiple symbols. The measurement module can measure the state information corresponding to each of the respective symbols to generate a set of initial measurements. The set of initial measurements can be provided to a device for integrity monitoring. The device is to compare a current measurement with an initial measurement to determine if a potential violation occurred. The device is to use a representation of a jump table to determine whether the potential violation is a violation.
