Application: Detecting network anomalies by correlating multiple information sources (Patent ID: US20230412452A1)

The patent filed by the Royal Bank of Canada describes a method for detecting network anomalies by monitoring a network providing public-facing application services and external public Internet platforms to obtain problem report data. When the data exceeds a threshold, internal network event logging tools are queried for alerts to identify anomalies, generate anomaly reports, and initiate known remediations automatically if available. Network administrators can also be notified automatically. The method involves parsing social media posts for keywords to extrapolate problem reports, disambiguating unrelated reports, mapping keywords to application codes, and identifying specific components of application services to pinpoint anomalies.

The claims detail the steps involved in the method, including monitoring the network and external platforms, querying internal tools for alerts, generating anomaly reports, and initiating remediations. The method also includes notifying network administrators of the anomaly reports. Different types of external platforms, such as dedicated problem-reporting platforms and social media platforms, are utilized to gather problem report data. The method involves analyzing reports from these platforms, mapping keywords to application codes, and identifying specific components to detect anomalies accurately. The threshold for triggering the anomaly detection process can be fixed, time-bounded, or based on a rate. Additionally, the patent covers computer program products and data processing systems implementing the described method for detecting network anomalies.
