A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11962639B1) outlines a method for extracting data from web applications. The method involves monitoring web traffic between a client terminal's web browser and a web server during multiple sessions. By creating data logs based on user interactions with the web server, the processors generate encrypted commands to replicate these interactions. This process includes extracting transfer protocol requests and responses to obtain private parameters like authentication credentials. By executing these commands, the method can recreate the web traffic sequence, extract private data, and display it on the client terminal.

Furthermore, the patent details additional steps such as extracting HTTP requests and responses from the data log, identifying user-specified patterns in web pages to extract pertinent data, and pruning the data log to remove irrelevant entries. The method also allows for storing the sequence of commands as a non-interactive script for automated retrieval of private data. The patent covers a computer-readable storage medium containing instructions for executing these operations, as well as a system comprising processors and a computer-readable medium to perform the data extraction process from web applications efficiently.
