Counsel:  Firm: Perkins Coie LLP
1st Invent:  Michael Christopher Hearn (Zurich, )
Inventors:  Genders: F=0, M=1
Abstract:
2000 char max
A method and system are provided to support a decentralized distributed ledger in which transactions are recorded by parties to the transactions without the use of a blockchain. A distributed ledger system provides a protocol framework that supports the development of protocol flows. A protocol flow is computer code that controls the performance of a transaction by the party or parties to the transaction. Protocol flows can be developed for different types of transactions. The distributed ledger system allows transactions to be proposed, accepted, and notarized by a notary and stored without the use of a blockchain ledger. The distributed ledger system can avoid the expense of the computational and storage resources needed to redundantly verify a transaction and store evidence on the many nodes of a blockchain distributed ledger.

Counsel:  Firm: Haynes and Boone, LLP
1st Invent:  Charles Gabriel Neale Dalton (San Jose, CA)
Inventors:  Genders: F=0, M=2
Abstract:
2000 char max
Mechanisms for efficiently transferring multiple unspent transaction output (UTXO) tokens in a blockchain network operating a UTXO-based token transaction model are disclosed herein. These methods allow for the use of less computer processing and network bandwidth resources in the transfer of blockchain items, particularly in blockchain schemes with lineage tracking mechanisms (e.g. as may allow for clawback of tokens). Some embodiments comprise generating a delegated account and transferring the UTXO tokens into the delegated account. The ownership of the delegated account can then be transferred to another use of the blockchain network in a single transaction, thereby avoiding the need to individually transfer the UTXO tokens and incur the memory and computational resource burden and costs associated with therewith.

Abstract:
2000 char max
Technologies for compressing a blockchain. In some examples, the technologies include removing selected blocks within a blockchain, and replacing the selected blocks with a summary block and a padding block. Each block of the selected blocks includes data in a certain state (such as data in an obsolete state). The technologies can include generating the summary block and padding blocks according to the data in the selected blocks and an original root hash included in the selected blocks and other blocks of the blockchain. The generating of the summary and padding blocks can include generating a new root hash in the summary and padding blocks that only replaces the original root hash in the summary and padding blocks. The generation of the new root hash can be based on a part of a header of a non-selected block of the blockchain directly linked to an end block of selected blocks.

Methods and devices are provided for uploading driving data to a blockchain network. The method is executed at a vehicle node in the blockchain network and includes: packing driving data of the vehicle node within a predetermined time interval every predetermined time interval to obtain a vehicle data packet of the vehicle, and storing the vehicle data packet locally in the vehicle node; broadcasting the vehicle data packet to other vehicle nodes located nearby and in the blockchain network for the other vehicle nodes to receive and store; receiving and storing other vehicle data packets broadcast by the other vehicle nodes located nearby and in the blockchain network; and when connecting to a fixed node that belongs to the blockchain network, synchronizing the vehicle data packet and the other vehicle data packets as stored to the fixed node, wherein the fixed node participates in the consensus of the blockchain network.

Abstract:
2000 char max
Methods, systems, and apparatus, including computer programs encoded on computer storage media, for establishing a proof of storage over a specified period of time. One of the methods includes: (i) receiving, at a prover, an initial input challenge; (ii) producing, at the prover, an output proof proving that the prover has access to specified data for a specified time, wherein producing the output proof includes: (a) producing, at the prover, an initial proof responsive to the initial input challenge, the initial proof proving that the prover is storing specified data; (b) generating, at the prover, a new input challenge based at least in part on the initial proof: (c) producing, at the prover, a new proof responsive to the new input challenge, the new proof proving that the prover is storing the specified data; and (d) repeating, at the prover, the generating step and the producing a new proof responsive to the new input challenge step a number of times, the repeating step generating sequential proofs of storage to determine time of storage , wherein each generating step is based at least in part on a most recent new proof; and (iii) forwarding the output proof, e.g., to a blockchain.

Abstract:
2000 char max
An example operation may include one or more of storing a full-step hash of a data file and a reduced-step hash of the data file within a data block of a hash-linked chain of blocks of a blockchain, receiving a request from a client application to verify the data file, determining whether to provide the full-step hash of the data file or the reduced-step hash of the data file based on the request, and in response to determining to provide the reduced-hash, transmitting the reduced-step hash of the data file to the client application.

Abstract:
2000 char max
The present disclosure provides systems, methods, and computer-readable storage media having functionality to prove immutability of blockchains without accessing user data. A user may submit data for storage to a data management server and the data management server may generate one or more data records corresponding to the data at a database and one or more blocks at a blockchain, each block corresponding to of the data records. Block information associated with the generated blocks may be transmitted to a remote computing device for storage at a database. Prior to storing the block information, the remote computing device may sign the data using a private key or other cryptographic technique. To validate a block, raw block information may be retrieved from the blockchain and compared to the signed block information. If the signed block information matches the raw block information, the block may be determined to be valid (e.g., unchanged).

Inventors:  Genders: F=0, M=1
Abstract:
2000 char max
A method of authorizing computing services at the edge of a communication network. The method comprises receiving an authorization request from an application server by an authorization application executing on a computer, in response to receiving the authorization request, analyzing by the authorization application a plurality of records of communication transactions completed by the application server to determine compliance with network edge communication terms of use defined for the application server by the communication network, wherein the records are stored in blocks of a blockchain maintained by the authorization application, and, based on determining that the application server is in compliance with the terms of use, sending an authorization message by the authorization application to the application server, wherein the authorization message indicates a deadline for requesting a next authorization from the authorization application, whereby the edge computing is supported securely by the communication network.

An apparatus to facilitate provenance audit trails for microservices architectures is disclosed. The apparatus includes one or more processors to: obtain, by a microservice of a service hosted in a datacenter, provisioned credentials for the microservice based on an attestation protocol; generate, for a task performed by the microservice, provenance metadata for the task, the provenance metadata including identification of the microservice, operating state of at least one of a hardware resource or a software resource used to execute the microservice and the task, and operating state of a sidecar of the microservice during the task; encrypt the provenance metadata with the provisioned credentials for the microservice; and record the encrypted provenance metadata in a local blockchain of provenance metadata maintained for the hardware resource executing the task and the microservice.
