  • Patent number: 12010114
    Abstract: Upon determining a first user of an object is authorized via first biometric data, object components are controlled based on user data for the first user. A second user is permitted to access the object based on detecting a presence of the second user within a predetermined time of detecting an absence of the first user. Then, upon determining a delay parameter is satisfied, a user status of the second user is determined via second biometric data. The user status is one of authorized or not authorized. The object components are controlled based on the user status of the second user.

  • Patent number: 12003605
    Abstract: A method for fetching a content from a web server to a client device is disclosed, using tunnel devices serving as intermediate devices. The client device accesses an acceleration server to receive a list of available tunnel devices. The requested content is partitioned into slices, and the client device sends a request for the slices to the available tunnel devices. The tunnel devices in turn fetch the slices from the data server, and send the slices to the client device, where the content is reconstructed from the received slices. A client device may also serve as a tunnel device, serving as an intermediate device to other client devices. Similarly, a tunnel device may also serve as a client device for fetching content from a data server. The selection of tunnel devices to be used by a client device may be in the acceleration server, in the client device, or in both.

  • Patent number: 11956366
    Abstract: The present invention comprises a computer-implemented zero-trust authentication method that utilizes the Bitcoin Lightning Network, which is the sole protocol offering immediate, immutable, and cost-free Bitcoin settlement. A user requests access to the resource of a service provider and the user provides authentication material necessary to securely access the service provider. The service provider initiates a Hold Invoice via a cryptographic function to generate a pre-image hash, instructing the user to authorize release of Bitcoin in an amount stipulated by the Hold Invoice. Bitcoin is held in the Hold Invoice until an authentication attempt is either successful or unsuccessful. If successful, the user is issued an access token to login into the resource, the Hold Invoice is canceled and Bitcoin is released to the user. If unsuccessful, the pre-image is revealed, the user is denied access, and Bitcoin is transferred to the service provider as a settled payment transaction.

The receiving device generates a particular receiver response on the basis of the request message, where the receiver response is transmitted to the monitoring device. The monitoring device receives the transmitter response and the receiver response and checks compliance with a trigger condition which depends on the transmitter response and the receiver response, the compliance of which indicates an event relevant to monitoring.

  • Patent number: 11902330
    Abstract: A device may receive data identifying malicious behavior by a compromised endpoint device associated with a network and may receive user identity data identifying a user of the compromised endpoint device associated with the network. The device may receive endpoint device data identifying the compromised endpoint device and other endpoint devices associated with the network and may receive network device data identifying network devices associated with the network. The device may utilize the data identifying malicious behavior, the user identity data, and the endpoint device data to generate, based on an identity of the user, a security policy to isolate the malicious behavior. The device may cause the security policy to be provided to the network devices and the other endpoint devices based on the network device data and the endpoint device data.

  • Patent number: 11902848
    Abstract: A method (30) and system (10) for controlling wireless local area network (WLAN) user quality in a multi-access point environment is provided. In order to ensure good quality of service/user experience in a multi-access point Wi-Fi™ setup in which a user roams with a station (14), the access points (11, 12) continuously or at intervals assess the wireless environment's quality and report to a control entity (13). The control entity (13) determines, from the assessment data, alternative target access points (11, 12) that could be used in case the link quality of a current connection between an access point (11) and the station (14) falls below a pre-defined value. The control entity (13) then instructs the access point (11) to actively disconnect the station (14) and selects a new target access point (12) to accept the stations (14) connection request.

  • Patent number: 11882110
    Abstract: Examples of renewal of security certificates of supplicant devices are described. In an example, a request to authenticate a supplicant device based on a security certificate is received by an authenticator device and from a supplicant device. The request comprises information relating to the security certificate which is expired. A login history of the supplicant device and presence of a valid account associated with the supplicant device in a directory database is determined. An authentication successful message is sent to the supplicant device based on the login history and presence of the valid account in the directory database. The supplicant device is redirected to a captive web portal for authentication of the supplicant device based on the login credential. In response to a successful authentication of the supplicant device in the captive web portal, a renewed security certificate for the supplicant device is provided.

  • Patent number: 11849321
    Abstract: Systems and method are provided for a temporary network slice usage barring service within a core network. A network device in the core network receives a slice barring information message for an application function (AF). The slice barring information message includes a unique subscriber identifier associated with a user equipment (UE) device to be barred from a network slice and indicates a barring expiration time. The network device stores barring parameters based on the slice barring information message. The barring parameters include a slice identifier associated with the AF, the unique subscriber identifier, and the barring expiration time. The network device sends a barring instruction message to another network device associated with the network slice. The barring instruction message includes the unique subscriber identifier and the barring expiration time. The other network device enforces temporary barring of the UE device from the network slice based on the barring instruction message.

  • Patent number: 11849157
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to systems and methods for live streaming. The system may receive a play request associated with a live stream from a terminal device. The system may determine whether there are one or more cached fragments associated with the live stream, wherein the one or more cached fragments are cached from a stream source via a first protocol. In response to determining that there are one or more cached fragments associated with the live stream, the system may determine whether the play request is a request that the terminal device requests the live stream for the first time. In response to determining that the play request is the request that the terminal device requests the live stream for the first time, after a caching of a current fragment is completed, the system may transmit an index file corresponding to the current fragment and at least one of the one or more cached fragments to the terminal device via a second protocol.
