"Security Filter for Context-Based Data Gravity Wells" in Patent Application Approval Process

August 19, 2014



By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Information Technology Newsweekly -- A patent application by the inventors ADAMS, SAMUEL S. (RUTHERFORDTON, NC); FRIEDLANDER, ROBERT R. (SOUTHBURY, CT); KRAEMER, JAMES R. (SANTA FE, NM); LINTON, JEB R. (MANASSAS, VA), filed on January 31, 2013, was made available online on August 7, 2014, according to news reporting originating from Washington, D.C., by VerticalNews correspondents.

This patent application is assigned to International Business Machines Corporation.

The following quote was obtained by the news editors from the background information supplied by the inventors: "The present disclosure relates to the field of computers, and specifically to the use of computers in managing data. Still more particularly, the present disclosure relates to sorting and categorizing data.

"Data are values of variables, which typically belong to a set of items. Examples of data include numbers and characters, which may describe a quantity or quality of a subject. Other data can be processed to generate a picture or other depiction of the subject. Data management is the development and execution of architectures, policies, practices and procedures that manage the data lifecycle needs of an enterprise. Examples of data management include storing data in a manner that allows for efficient future data retrieval of the stored data."

In addition to the background information obtained for this patent application, VerticalNews journalists also obtained the inventors' summary information for this patent application: "A processor-implemented method, system, and/or computer program product defines multiple security-enabled context-based data gravity wells on a security-enabled context-based data gravity wells membrane. Non-contextual data objects are associated with context objects to define synthetic context-based objects. The synthetic context-based objects are associated with one or more security objects to generate security-enabled synthetic context-based objects, which are parsed into an n-tuple that includes a pointer to one of the non-contextual data objects, a probability that a non-contextual data object has been associated with a correct context object, probability that the security object has been associated with a correct synthetic context-based object, and a weighting factor of importance of the security-enabled synthetic context-based object. A virtual mass of each parsed security-enabled synthetic context-based object is calculated, in order to define a shape of multiple security-enabled context-based data gravity wells that are created when security-enabled synthetic context-based objects are pulled in.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE SEVERAL VIEWS OF THE DRAWINGS

"FIG. 1 depicts an exemplary system and network in which the present disclosure may be implemented;

"FIG. 2 illustrates a process for generating one or more synthetic context-based objects;

"FIG. 3 depicts an exemplary case in which synthetic context-based objects are defined for the non-contextual data object datum 'Purchase';

"FIG. 4 illustrates an exemplary case in which synthetic context-based objects and security objects are used to generate security-enabled synthetic context-based objects;

"FIG. 5 depicts a process of preparing a data stream for transmission to a security-enabled context-based data gravity wells membrane;

"FIG. 6 depicts parsed security-enabled synthetic context-based objects being selectively pulled into security-enabled context-based data gravity well frameworks in order to define security-enabled context-based data gravity wells; and

"FIG. 7 is a high-level flow chart of one or more steps performed by a processor to define multiple security-enabled context-based data gravity wells on a security-enabled context-based data gravity wells membrane."
