  • Patent number: 11366886
    Abstract: A user provides an identification (ID) signal (e.g. a biometric ID signal like a self-snapshot) to a trusted cloud-based provider. When the user attempts to authenticate with the cloud-based provider, a similar ID signal (e.g. another self-snapshot) for the user is captured and provided to the cloud-based provider. The cloud-based provider then obtains a secondary ID signal, or a combination of secondary ID signals, and utilizes the secondary ID signal, or signals, to identify a subset of user records to be searched for the ID signal. The subset of the records, rather than all of the user records, can then be searched for the ID signal. The cloud-based provider can then authenticate the user based on the results of the search of the subset of the user records.

  • Patent number: 11343268
    Abstract: The disclosed techniques relate to a graph-based network security analytic framework to combine multiple sources of information and security knowledge in order to detect risky behaviors and potential threats. In some examples, the input can be anomaly events or simply regular events. The entities associated with the activities can be grouped into smaller time units, e.g., per day. The riskiest days of activity can be found by computing a risk score for each day and according to the features in the day. A graph can be built with links between the time units. The links can also receive scoring based on a number of factors. The resulting graph can be compared with known security knowledge for adjustments. Threats can be detected based on the adjusted risk score for a component (i.e., a group of linked entities) as well as a number of other factors.

  • Patent number: 11334651
    Abstract: A user provides an identification (ID) signal (e.g. a biometric ID signal like a self-snapshot) to a trusted cloud-based provider. When the user attempts to authenticate with the cloud-based provider, a similar ID signal (e.g. another self-snapshot) for the user is captured and provided to the cloud-based provider. The cloud-based provider then obtains a secondary ID signal, or a combination of secondary ID signals, and utilizes the secondary ID signal, or signals, to identify a subset of user records to be searched for the ID signal. The subset of the records, rather than all of the user records, can then be searched for the ID signal. The cloud-based provider can then authenticate the user based on the results of the search of the subset of the user records.
