  • Patent number: 11329885
    Abstract: Disclosed embodiments provide cluster creation using self-joining cluster nodes. Each node within a cluster is assigned a role of master or non-master. A master node initializes and creates a cluster. A non-master, or “role” node initializes and joins a cluster established by the master. If the master has not yet initialized, the non-master node waits until the master node is operational and then joins the cluster. A description file associated with each node describes the services and configuration required for the node's assigned role. In this way, non-master nodes can be spawned independently of the master node, providing a greater level of scalability, improved fault tolerance, and increased availability.

  • Patent number: 11330010
    Abstract: Systems and methods are described for detecting compromised web pages and domains by analyzing of elements of hypertext markup language (HTML) files of a domain. In one embodiment, a security service receives a request including a potentially malicious uniform resource locator (URL) and retrieves a first HTML file to which the potentially malicious URL points and a second HTML file to which a host URL corresponding to the potentially malicious URL points. The security service determines whether the potentially malicious URL is a malicious URL by comparing features of the first HTML file to corresponding features of the second HTML file and when a similarity value resulting from the comparing is less than a threshold, then the security service concludes that the first HTML file was created by a malicious actor and responds to the request with an indication that the potentially malicious URL is a malicious URL.

    Abstract: Techniques for device to device (D2D) wireless communication are provided. In an aspect, a first user equipment (UE) receives device-to-device (D2D) information from a second user equipment (UE). The first UE determines whether the first UE is within a threshold range from the second UE based on the D2D information.

  • Patent number: 11323452
    Abstract: A system and process for applying access groups for controlling data access, by a processor device. The process receives from a user a request to access data associated with a person from a file system, whereby the request invokes at least one software method. Next method interception is performed by matching the at least one software method. Group membership of the user and at least one group membership of the person is accessed. Determining if each of the following conditions of i) the user is a member of a specific group and ii) the specific group contains the person are verified. In response to the conditions being verified, the process sends the data to a user device to display to the user, otherwise denying the request to access data. Each group can have one or more criteria, which add patients to that group based on the conditions of those criteria.

  • Patent number: 11303462
    Abstract: Systems and methods of authentication and encrypted communication between a server and client using independently-generated shared encryption keys are disclosed. Clients with arrays of physical-unclonable-function devices respond to server-issued challenges. The clients derive encryption keys from responses to those challenges generated by measuring PUF devices specified by the challenges. The clients send messages encrypted with the encryption keys to the server. The server independently reproduces the client-generated encryption keys using information about the PUF devices. When the keys match, the clients are authenticated. It may be desirable to inject errors into the challenge responses generated by the clients to improve security. When errors are injected, attackers cannot determine correct challenge responses except by brute force.

  • Patent number: 11302589
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for electron beam probing techniques and related structures are described to enable inline testing of memory device structures. Conductive loops may be formed, some of which may be grounded and others of which may be electrically floating in accordance with a predetermined pattern. The loops may be scanned with an electron beam and image analysis techniques may be used to generate an optical pattern. The generated optical pattern may be compared to an expected optical pattern, which may be based on the predetermined pattern of grounded and floating loops. An electrical defect may be determined based on any difference between the generated optical pattern and the expected optical pattern. For example, if a second loop appears as having a brightness corresponding to a grounded loop, this may indicate that an unintended short exists. Fabrication techniques may be adjusted for subsequent devices to correct identified defects.

    Abstract: The technology disclosed describes a computer-implemented method. The computer-implemented method includes disambiguating a bypassed login event that caused a client to access a cloud application but bypassed a network security system configured to intermediate traffic between the client and the cloud application. The network security system receives from the client an incoming request to access a resource on the cloud application over an application session. The bypassed login event preceded the incoming request. The network security system analyzes the incoming request and detects absence of instance metadata required to determine whether the bypassed login event emanated from a controlled account or an uncontrolled account. The network security system holds the incoming request, generates a synthetic request, and injects the synthetic request into the application session and transmits the synthetic request to the cloud application.

    Abstract: A server allows pairing of a computing device with a companion computing device so that they may automatically connect to one another in the future. Pairing is accomplished by responding to a user request to pair a particular companion device by identifying computing devices associated with a particular user account, and directing those devices to monitor whether they are in range of a proximity signal (such as a BLUETOOTH® signal). A user interface on the companion device displays a list of devices specific to the user that are in proximity to the companion computing device, so that the user can choose a device to pair with the companion computing device.

  • Patent number: 11288107
    Abstract: Methods and systems may help to provide filtered notification content that provides useful information to the intended recipient, but does not provide the same information to an unauthorized viewer. To do so, when an application event occurs, filtered notification content may be generated. The filtered notification content may combine a non-obfuscated portion of the event content and an obfuscated portion of the event content, such that when viewed by an intended recipient, the filtered notification content provides implicit information that the device expects the particular user to understand based on the user's own experience and/or other factors.

  • Patent number: 11283593
    Abstract: In general, this disclosure describes encryption engines that adaptively synchronize signals and suppress glitch propagation in a data decryption pipeline. An apparatus includes a decryption data path having a plurality of computational stages arranged in a pipeline configured to decrypt an encrypted block of data to form a decrypted block of data. One of the computational stages included in the pipeline of the decryption data path includes multiple asymmetric logical paths. A first signal traverses a first logical path and a second signal traverses a second logical path having a greater number of logical units than the first logical path. A glitch suppression register of the apparatus is configured to synchronize the first signal with respect to the second signal such that the first signal and the second signal arrive at a downstream logic element of the computational stage of the decryption data path at substantially a same time.
