Application: Hashing techniques for associating assets related to events with addressable computer network assets (Patent ID: US20240039730A1)

The patent filed by Rapid7 Inc. describes techniques for associating assets related to events detected in a computer network with assets in an asset catalog. The method involves monitoring network activity, obtaining information about events related to assets, generating signatures and hashed signatures of assets using network addressing information, and associating assets in the catalog based on these signatures. The goal is to output information identifying the associated assets, allowing for efficient asset management and event tracking within the network.

The claims detail the specific steps involved in the method, such as generating signatures from network addressing information, applying locality sensitive hashing techniques, and associating assets based on hashed signatures. The method can handle various network parameters like hostnames, IP addresses, and MAC addresses, and involves techniques like character embedding and machine learning models for numeric representations. Additionally, the method allows for policy-based processing of events related to assets, such as granting or denying access based on identified policies. The patent also covers a system and computer-readable storage medium for implementing these techniques, providing a comprehensive solution for asset association and management in computer networks.
