  • Patent number: 9578022
    Abstract: An authentication technique with a teaching phase and authentication phase. In the teaching phase, authentication information is collected for a user in at least two categories, wherein one category relates to measurable physical characteristics of the user, another category relates to communication resources available to the user; and a third category relates to knowledge possessed by the user. In the authentication phase, some of the collected authentication information is used to formulate challenge(s) for presentation to the user. Response(s) to the formulated challenge(s) is/are received from the user and correctness of the received response is determined based at least partially on comparison with at least a portion of the collected authentication information. A correctness metric is calculated for the response(s). The user is authenticated if the correctness metric meets or exceeds a first threshold value.

  • Patent number: RE46685
    Abstract: The invention is an SMS distribution method for inquiries, invitations and proposals in which inquiries are sent to mobile telephone numbers included in a distribution list and their replies are collected as text messages via the SMS service (7) provided by the telecommunications network by means of a software program (1) installed on a server (2). The problem in distributing inquiries with existing SMS services has been the limited possibility of replying to the sending telecommunications operator and separating replies to several inquiries from one another. In the method embodied by this invention, universally reachable mobile network numbers (11) are used as reply addresses for the inquiries, invitations and proposals, and replies are separated from one another by means of reply addresses consisting of public mobile communication network numbers and SMS service numbers and automatically generated reply symbols.
