Abstract

Techniques for role-based permission delegation in a provider network. The techniques include an assuming service in the provider network sending a request to a temporary credential service in the provider network to assume a delegation role. The assuming service, acting in the delegation role, sending a request to the temporary credential service to assume the customer role in accordance with a down scoping policy. The assuming service, acting in the customer role, performing an action in a strict subset of actions on a customer resource. The techniques improve the operation of the provider network by allowing a permission to perform an action on the customer resource that is granted by the customer to a delegating service in the provider network to be delegated to the assuming service while complying with the access control principle of least privilege.

Abstract

Systems and methods are used to detect underlying themes from a collection of documents at an aggregated level. A representative set of documents may be selected from a cluster of documents, with the representative set of documents corresponding to a general theme of the cluster. Candidate theme phrases may then be extracted from the documents and used to generate document embeddings and candidate phrase embeddings, which may be ranked, such as with a diversity-based ranking approach. Certain candidates may be selected from the ranking. Each of the documents forming the representative set may then be concatenated and a query embedding may be generated and ranked against the candidate phrases. In this manner, a collection of phrases associated with both the general underlying theme of the cluster, along with granular topics associated with that theme, may be identified.

Abstract

A biometric identification system processes input data acquired by input devices to determine embeddings used to identify a user. Different types of input devices or hardware configurations of input devices may produce different output. Each hardware configuration may be associated with respective representation data. A set of transformer networks are used to transform an embedding from one representation data associated with a first type of device or hardware configuration to another. This enables user participation via different configurations of hardware without requiring users to re-enroll for different input devices or hardware configurations. Opportunistic updates are made to the embeddings as embeddings native to a particular configuration of hardware are acquired from the user.

Abstract

This disclosure describes a verification service within a service provider network for automatically verifying and validating documents. A user may upload a document image to the verification service. A pre-processing service may pre-process the document image. The pre-processed document image may then be forwarded to a first machine learning ML model for similarity evaluation. Once the first ML model has completed its evaluation of the document image, the first ML model may forward the document image to a second ML model for symbol recognition, which may then forward the business license to an optical recognition (OCR) service for OCR validation. If the document image is validated, e.g., is an image of a purported document type, as will be discussed further herein, the publishing service may pre-populate, e.g., publish, information from the document image to an account template.

Abstract

Techniques for enabling access in a multi-assistant speech processing system are described, where a first assistant system may use components of a second assistant system as data processing components. Runtime operational data and user input data related to the first assistant may be kept separate from the processing data and input data related to the second assistant by propagating a first account ID, for user inputs directed to the first assistant, through the processing pipeline, and using a second account for user inputs directed to the second assistant. A mapping between the first account ID and the second account ID may be accessible to a select number of system components. Handoffs between the two assistants are handled in a manner where data related to one assistant is not accessible by the other assistant.

Abstract

An Application Programming Interface (API) allows a launching of a virtual machine where a queue count can be configured by a user. More specifically, each virtual machine can be assigned a pool of queues. Additionally, each virtual machine can have multiple virtual networking interfaces and a user can assign a number of queues from the pool to each virtual networking interface. Thus, a new metadata field is described that can be used with requests to launch a virtual machine. The metadata field includes one or more parameters that associate a number of queues with each virtual networking interface. A queue count can be dynamically configured by a user to ensure that the queues are efficiently used given that the user understands the intended application of the virtual machine being launched.

Abstract

Techniques for customer-initiated virtual machine resource allocation sharing are described. A hardware virtualization service of a cloud provider network receives a request to launch a first virtual machine, wherein the first virtual machine is of a first virtual machine type, the first virtual machine type having a resource amount allocated to virtual machines of the first virtual machine type. The hardware virtualization service causes a launch of the first virtual machine on a host computer system of the cloud provider network. The host computer system shares an allocation of the resource amount from a corresponding resource of the host computer system between the first virtual machine and a second virtual machine, wherein the second virtual machine is of the first virtual machine type.

Abstract

Systems and methods are described for implementing a distributed unit in a radio access network that executes code on behalf of mobile devices. A distributed unit may be implemented on an edge server that is in close physical proximity to a radio unit, with few or no intervening devices. The edge server may thus provide services to mobile devices, such as executing code on behalf of a mobile device in an execution environment on the edge server, at significantly lower latency than more distant cloud-based servers. The edge server may preload computing environments with code for which a mobile device is likely to request execution (e.g., because a particular application is executing on the mobile device), and may determine whether to execute code on the edge server or on a cloud provider network.

Abstract

Systems and techniques are disclosed for predicting the structural status of an object. An object model, such as a machine learning model, can be trained on sample sensor data indicating vibrations, movements, and/or other reactions of objects with known desired and undesired structural statuses to a stimulus agent, such as a puff of air. A scanning device can output a corresponding stimulus agent towards an object, capture sensor data indicating the reaction of the object to the stimulus agent, and provide the sensor data to the trained object model. Based on the sensor data indicating how the object reacted to the stimulus agent, the object model can predict whether the object has a desired structural status or an undesired structural status.

Abstract

Techniques are described for providing a policy refiner application to analyze and recommend modifications to identity and access management policies created by users of a cloud provider network (e.g., to move the policies toward least-privilege permissions). A policy refiner application receives as input a policy to analyze, and a log of events related to activity associated with one or more accounts of a cloud provider network. The policy refiner application can identify, from the log of events, actions that were permitted based on particular statements contained in the policy. Based on field values contained in the corresponding events, the policy refiner application generates an abstraction of the field values, where the abstraction of the field values may represent a more restrictive version of the field from a policy perspective. These abstractions can be presented to users as recommendations for modifying their policy to reduce the privileges granted by the policy.

Abstract

Systems and methods for implementing record locking for transactions using a probabilistic data structure are described. This probabilistic structure enables adding of data records without growth of the data structure. The data structure includes a hash table for each of multiple hash functions, where entries in the respective hash tables store a transaction time and locking state. To lock a record, each hash function is applied to a record key to provide an index into a respective hash table and a minimum of the values stored in the hash tables is retrieved. If the retrieved value is less than a transaction time for a transaction attempting to lock the record, locking is permitted and the transaction time is recorded to each of the hash tables. To commit the transaction, the probabilistic data structure is atomically updated as part of the commit operation.

Abstract

A multitenant solver execution service provides managed infrastructure for defining and solving large-scale optimization problems. In embodiments, the service executes solver jobs on managed compute resources such as virtual machines or containers. The compute resources can be automatically scaled up or down based on client demand and are assigned to solver jobs in a serverless manner. Solver jobs can be initiated based on configured triggers. In embodiments, the service allows users to select from different types of solvers, mix different solvers in a solver job, and translate a model from one solver to another solver. In embodiments, the service provides developer interfaces to, for example, run solver experiments, recommend solver types or solver settings, and suggest model templates. The solver execution service relieves developers from having to manage infrastructure for running optimization solvers and allows developers to easily work with different types of solvers via a unified interface.

Abstract

Approaches presented herein relate to the management of secure secrets in a distributed environment. In particular, various embodiments provide for the management of unique digital identities across multiple regions, where each region can include its own certificate authority. While these certificate authorities may operate independently, they can be part of a multi¬ primary system where unique identities and keys are stored redundantly across environments. In the event of a failure of a certificate authority in one region, another certificate authority in another region can continue security and authentication management, without a need to issue new identities or change operation of any of the regions. Parties to secure communications, such as application containers, can each receive their own unique identity which can be shared across various regions to allow related tasks (e.g., certificate issuance or revocation) to be performed identically from any of those regions.

Abstract

An instance secrets management isolated runtime environment is launched at a virtualization server, and utilizes a subset of memory assigned to a compute instance. The subset of memory is inaccessible from entities external to the runtime environment. A secrets manager of the runtime environment provides a security artifact to an application, running at the compute instance, which has requested access to a resource. The artifact is generated by the secrets manager using a security secret associated with the compute instance; the secret is not accessible to programs external to the runtime environment. In response to a determination that the artifact is valid, the application obtains access to the resource.

Abstract

Systems and methods are described for implementing a distributed unit in a radio access network that synchronizes its clock with a radio unit. A distributed unit may be deployed in a location where it cannot receive timing information from a satellite or may lack the equipment to obtain and process satellite signals. The clock of the distributed unit may thus drift relative to the clocks of the radio units, which may cause the distributed unit to mistime its transmissions of data to radio units for delivery to user devices. The distributed unit may prevent clock drift by obtaining timing information from the radio units, determining an amount of clock drift that is occurring, and applying a correction factor to keep the distributed unit clock synchronized with the radio unit clock. The distributed unit may determine how often to synchronize based on the severity and variability of the clock drift.

Abstract

Systems and methods are described for implementing a distributed unit in an open radio access network that manages its workload to reduce the risk of missing a radio unit timeslot. A distributed unit may receive data from a centralized unit and transmit the data to a radio unit, which may transmit the data to user devices during fixed timeslots. The distributed unit must therefore transmit data to the radio unit for delivery during each timeslot to prevent "dead air" and potential connectivity issues. The distributed unit thus monitors its workload, determines whether its risk of missing a window for transmitting data to the radio unit satisfies a criterion, and then if necessary reduces its workload until the criterion is no longer satisfied. The distributed unit may communicate with an access and mobility management function or other network component to facilitate workload management.

Abstract

Real-time low-complexity stereo speech enhancement with spatial cue preservation may be performed. A stereo speech enhancement system receives a stereo input signal (e.g., a left and right input signal). The stereo speech enhancement system estimates spatial cues for a target speaker and downmixes the stereo input signal into a monaural signal. A low-complexity model may then process the monaural signal to generate an enhanced monaural signal. The stereo speech enhancement system upmixes the enhanced monaural signal based on the estimated spatial cues for the target speaker, to generate an enhanced stereo output signal.

A device onboarding and integration service may emulate, by a first device abstraction, an edge device of a client network, where the edge device is a first type of device. The service emulates, by a second device abstraction, the edge device as a second type of edge device (e.g., from a different vendor/uses a different API). The service updates a state of the first device abstraction based on a state of the edge device. The service then updates a state of the emulating, by a second device abstraction, the edge device as a second type of edge device. The second device abstraction sends its updated state to an application at the client network.

Abstract

A satellite constellation provides communication between user terminals (UTs) and ground stations that connect to other networks, such as the Internet. Satellites transmit beacon transmissions to particular areas on Earth at particular times. The beacon transmissions include information used by a UT to use a random access channel (RACH) uplink to request communication. Responsive to the request, encryption is established between the satellite and the UT. The satellite may then allocate uplink resources, send data to the UT on a downlink, and so forth. The UT receives additional data about future handovers to other satellites. Based on previously received data the UT may quickly re-establish communication with a satellite after an interruption, such as due to a power outage at the UT. If the previously received data has expired, the UT may again use a beacon transmission.

Abstract

A data guard circuit can be used to verify encryption of the data traffic on a bus between two integrated circuit (IC) devices. The data guard circuit can monitor the data traffic on the bus to analyze the data traffic based on a configuration. The analysis can be performed by sampling the data traffic, and a statistical data pattern can be identified in the sampled data traffic. The statistical data pattern can be compared with a threshold to determine whether the data traffic is encrypted. The data guard circuit can generate a notification if the data traffic is not encrypted as expected so that an appropriate action can be taken to protect the data.

Abstract

A vehicle data management system and data jurisdiction system manage vehicle data between multiple jurisdictions and enables a set of jurisdiction rules involving rules of various jurisdictions to be applied consistently. The vehicle data jurisdiction system can detect changes in jurisdiction of a vehicle based on various pieces of received vehicle information and applies appropriate jurisdiction rules from a set of jurisdiction rules. Various jurisdictions may have conflicting jurisdiction rules and, in such circumstances, the data jurisdiction system resolves potential conflicts between the rules using a jurisdiction rules resolution workflow. Based on the resolution of the conflict, the data jurisdiction system can migrate data of the vehicle to one or more other jurisdictions, or otherwise implement the correct rules determined by resolving the conflict.

Abstract

A network change verification (NCV) system is disclosed for checking whether a proposed configuration change on a network alters the way that the network controls recently observed network flows. In embodiments, the system builds an observed flow control model (OFCM) from logs of recent flows observed in the network. The OFCM, which may be periodically updated based on newly observed flows, provides a compact representation of how individual network flows were ostensibly controlled by the network. When a proposed configuration change is received, the system analyzes the change against the OFCM to check whether the change will alter how the network controls recently observed flows. If so, the proposed change is blocked, and an alert is generated identifying flows that are affected by the change. The NCV system thus prevents network operators from accidentally making changes on the network that will materially alter the behavior of the network.

Abstract

Systems and methods are described for executing tightly coupled parallel applications on a serverless computing system. A serverless computing system executes user-submitted code in sandboxed environments such as virtual machines or containers. To support execution of parallel applications that require data transfer between instances of the application, the serverless computing system implements an ephemeral mesh network that allows instances of the parallel application to communicate with each other while executing in their respective sandboxes. In some embodiments, a controller or parent application may also connect to the ephemeral mesh network to coordinate execution of the parallel applications. In other embodiments, the parent application may be external to the serverless computing system. The serverless computing system may connect and disconnect sandboxed environments from the ephemeral mesh network as parallel applications start and stop executing, and may remove the network and terminate the parallel applications when the parent application stops executing.

Abstract

A queue or media queue of music is generated by multiple listeners for playing by one or more devices. Listeners may select music using user interfaces rendered by their respective devices, and rank or vote to determine an order in which the music is played in accordance with the queue or media queue. Where a song or another media entity is accessible at a premium or only with a subscription, and one of the multiple listeners is not authorized to access the song, an unauthorized listener may be invited to purchase a subscription, or a substitute song may be selected for the unauthorized listener. Once a queue or media queue has been generated, music may be played in accordance with the queue or media queue by a single device in the presence of the multiple listeners, or by multiple devices each having any number of listeners within a vicinity.

Techniques for using a shared encoder and multiple different decoders for natural language understanding (NLU) tasks are described. The individual decoders are configured to perform different tasks using the output from one shared encoder. The decoders can process with respect to different domains and different languages. Using the shared encoder can reduce computation time during runtime. Using the shared encoder can reduce training costs (e.g., time and resources) when the system is updated to incorporate additional intents and entities. The system employs an attention mechanism to extract encoded representation data that can be used by the different decoders for its specific task.

Abstract

Systems and methods, to efficiently prepare for live and stored file content, implement one or more warm inputs, which actively ingest and demux content, but do not actively decode the content until an input switch is commanded. Each warm input can cache a most recent instantaneous decoder refresh and subsequent reference frames (I-frames and P -frames). Upon an input switch being commanded, the subject input commences decoding of such preserved frames. The formerly-warm input then acts as a hot input (decoding every frame) until the input switch completes. The use of warm inputs, which avoid the decoding stage, reduces computational resource use, allows preparation of all inputs by default, and permits metrics, status reports, and thumbnails to be generated regarding non-active inputs.

Abstract

An algorithm execution management system of a provider network may receive a request from a user for executing an algorithm using different types of computing resources, including classical computing resources and quantum computing resources. The request may indicate a container that includes the algorithm code and dependencies such as libraries for executing the algorithm. The algorithm execution management system may first determine that the quantum computing resources are available to execute the algorithm, and then cause the classical computing resources to be provisioned. The algorithm execution management system may cause at least one portion of the algorithm to be executed at the classical computing resources using the container indicated by the user, and at least another portion of the algorithm to be executed at the quantum computing resources. The quantum task of the algorithm may be provided a priority during execution of the algorithm for using the quantum computing resources.

Abstract

A quantum computing service may store, in a cache, one or more compiled files of respective quantum functions included in one or more quantum computing programs received one or more customers. When the quantum computing service receives another quantum computing program, from the same or a different customer, the quantum computing service may determine whether the quantum computing program may include one or more of the quantum functions corresponding to the compiled files in the cache. If so, the quantum computing service may use the compiled files in the cache to compile the quantum computing program.

Abstract

A host device may include an interconnect, a host memory, and a set of processor cores. A processor core may execute a VM assigned to a cryptographic key and may send a request to access a physical address in the host memory toward the interconnect. An enforcer device may receive the request and extract a key identifier from the request. The enforcer device may determine whether to allow the request to access the physical address via the interconnect based on the key identifier and a list of allowed keys stored on the enforcer device. If the enforcer device determines to not allow the request to access, the enforcer device may modify the physical address and/or the key identifier of the request.

Abstract

A device is configured to detect multiple different wakewords. A device may operate a joint encoder that operates on audio data to determine encoded audio data. The device may operate multiple different decoders which process the encoded audio data to determine if a wakeword is detected. Each decoder may correspond to a different wakeword. The decoders may use fewer computing resources than the joint encoder, allowing for the device to more easily perform multiple wakeword processing. Enabling / disabling wakeword(s) may involve the reconfiguring of a wakeword detector to add / remove data for respective decoder(s).

Abstract

A system and method for providing quantum entanglement as a service are described. Intermediate nodes which may be located in trusted or trustless locations are used to distribute quantum entanglement to endpoints, such as endpoints of customers of a quantum entanglement distribution service. The distributed quantum entanglement provides a secure communication path that does not rely on trust placed in an infrastructure or software provider. To distribute the quantum entanglement, intermediate nodes comprising quantum memories are used. Joint measurements are performed on quantum particles of respective entangled quantum pairs received at the intermediate nodes without collapsing superposition states of the particles. This allows for the quantum entanglement to be extended across intermediate nodes while maintaining entanglement and superposition of the entangled quantum particles.

Abstract

A networking manager of an extension server of a virtualized computing service detects that a data link layer frame has been obtained at the extension server. The networking manager delivers at least a portion of contents of the frame to a compute instance running at the extension server in response to determining that a destination media access control (MAC) address of the frame matches a MAC address of a local-premise-access virtual network interface attached to the compute instance. The local-premise-access virtual network interface is not assigned an Internet Protocol (IP) address from a range of IP addresses managed by the virtualized computing service.
