  • Patent number: 11392357
    Abstract: A host delegates Just-In-Time (JIT) bytecode compilation to a serverless Web Assembly (WASM) runtime. The WASM runtime receives the bytecode, together with any additional arguments (e.g.: offsets of dependent functions, vtable metadata, virtual machine state). The host may include a parser to provide the additional arguments. In response to receiving the bytecode and arguments, the WASM runtime triggers a thread and loads appropriate WASM modules to compile the bytecode. The resulting assembly instructions are sent back to the host for execution in connection with the (frequently requested) method. Only the bytecode of frequently-accessed methods (as determined at the host) may be delegated for compilation. Delegation of bytecodes for compilation according to embodiments, may conserve a significant percentage of CPU cycles at the host, which can then be used for executing code instead.

  • Patent number: 11379565
    Abstract: The present invention extends to methods, systems, and computer program products for identifying and consenting to permissions for workflow and code execution. Aspects of the invention can be used to automatically scan a workflow or code definition to identify (potentially all) the actions/triggers a workflow or program intends to perform on behalf of a user. The user is shown the actions/triggers the workflow or program intends to perform (e.g., at a user interface) before consent to perform the actions/triggers is granted. As such, a user is aware of intended actions/triggers of a workflow or program before granting consent. Further, since actions/triggers are identified from the workflow or code definition (and not formulated by an author), permission requests better align with permissions that workflow or program functionality actually uses during execution.

    Abstract: Embodiments described herein provide a privacy mechanism to protect user data when transmitting the data to a server that estimates a frequency of such data amongst a set of client devices. In one embodiment, a differential privacy mechanism is implemented using a count-mean-sketch technique that can reduce resource requirements required to enable privacy while providing provable guarantees regarding privacy and utility. For instance, the mechanism can provide the ability to tailor utility (e.g. accuracy of estimations) against the resource requirements (e.g. transmission bandwidth and computation complexity).

  • Patent number: 11228632
    Abstract: A system for capturing impression data includes a server in communication with a user's computing device via a communications network. The server is configured to generate a pixel for embedding in a digital communication viewable in a web browser on the user's computing device. The pixel is served from a domain associated with the server. The server is configured to, in response to the digital communication being viewed in the web browser on the user's computing device, set a cookie on the user's computing device via the pixel. The cookie is configured to store data associated with one or more impressions of digital communications viewed on the user's computing device. The server is configured to, in response to the user's computing device accessing the domain via the web browser, receive the stored data associated with the one or more impressions from the cookie set on the user's computing device.

  • Patent number: 11194983
    Abstract: A tag positioned on an object provides information for selecting augmented reality (AR) content that is based, at least in part, on a user profile or other user information. The tag may be utilized to transmit messages between users where AR content can be integrated into the message and presented upon scanning and processing of the tag. The AR content may also be related to user interests or real time user information, such as user location. The user may interact with the AR content to retrieve additional information, which provides an improved customer experience and improved integration into a provider ecosystem.

  • Patent number: 11120013
    Abstract: A digital asset is represented and verified as a set of related digital asset or other content objects. Related metadata is stored on an immutable distributed ledger separately from the content objects themselves. For example, a transaction object includes metadata such as identifiers for two or more content objects, fingerprints for the content objects. The content objects may be stored in a local or cloud object repository. Validation of a later identified content object may include determining a fingerprint for the later identified content object, mapping that fingerprint to an address within the immutable distributed ledger to retrieve metadata previously mapped, and comparing the two fingerprints. Visual validation may be provided when the first and second fingerprints match, such as by displaying a positive icon adjacent the later identified object.

  • Patent number: 11088856
    Abstract: A memory storage system is provided according to an exemplary embodiment of the disclosure. The memory storage system includes a host system and a memory storage device. In a first handshake operation, the memory storage device transmits first encrypted information corresponding to first authentication information to the host system, and the host system transmits second encrypted information corresponding to the first authentication information to the memory storage device. In a second handshake operation, the memory storage device transmits third encrypted information corresponding to second authentication information to the host system, and the host system transmits fourth encrypted information corresponding to third authentication information to the memory storage device based on the third encrypted information. The third authentication information is configured to encrypt data transmitted between the host system and the memory storage device in a developer command transmission stage.

  • Patent number: 11080268
    Abstract: Techniques are disclosed for serializing assertion-triggering transactions by locking special purpose resources (i.e. other than rows or tables), which enables a high level of concurrency for these transactions while at the same time ensuring correctness of the SQL assertion validation code. The techniques involve creating objects referred to therein as “Assertion-Locking Memory-Objects” or “ALMOs”. The database server causes each assertion-triggering transaction to obtain locks on one or more ALMOs prior to determining whether the changes made by assertion-triggering transaction violates the assertion. Because locks on the ALMOs are finer than the table locks, fewer transactions are blocked by ALMO locks.

  • Patent number: 11082424
    Abstract: Embodiments are directed to securing data using attribute-based encryption. In an embodiment, a computer system encrypts a portion of data with an attribute-based encryption, including associating the encrypted portion of data with one or more encryption attributes. The computer system sends the encrypted portion of data and the one or more encryption attributes to a data store, which stores the first portion of data along with the one or more encryption attributes. The computer system also defines one or more access controls for the portion of data that include an identity of at least one user permitted to access the portion of data. The attribute-based encryption allows the encrypted portion of data to be provided by the data store upon request by the identified user when the request includes one or more search attributes that are relevant to the one or more encryption attributes.

  • Patent number: 11082405
    Abstract: A method, and associated system, for security processing of a request for a resource in a network security system. The request for the resource and a duplicate of request for the resource are forwarded to a first proxy server and a second proxy server, respectively. A first output including the received request, and a second output including the duplicate of the received request, are received from first proxy server and the second proxy server, respectively. A determination is made that the first output and the second output differ and in response, a first alarm is generated and transmission to the web server of the received request and the duplicate of the received request is blocked.
