  • Patent number: 10237741
    Abstract: The proliferation of networked, wireless-enabled devices is challenged by the reliance upon password management and user knowledge of privacy and security techniques to maintain control over data that is personal, proprietary or restricted. This disclosure enables a geo-proximity security and privacy system for assuring control and non-repudiation for wireless-enabled devices by relying upon location and trusted network relationships among a set of wireless-enabled devices, where one or more devices may act as a control or master key.

  • Publication number: 20190051391
    Abstract: A healthcare management and communication system including a central server, home base devices, and portable medical assistant devices (PMAD) providing secure electronic communications among medical facilities and healthcare providers, while ensuring privacy of patient medical records. In an embodiment, the central server communicates with the home base device(s) and the PMAD providing information necessary for a healthcare provider to perform a procedure for a patient. The healthcare communication system provides security for patient information by allowing the healthcare provider to access some basic patient information on the PMAD, including directions to the patient's house, when the PMAD is in all locations. Only when the PMAD is within a physical proximity to a selected home base device can the healthcare provider access the corresponding patient's confidential information necessary for the on-site visit.

  • Patent number: 10028147
    Abstract: The proliferation of networked, wireless-enabled devices is challenged by the reliance upon password management and user knowledge of privacy and security techniques to maintain control over data that is personal, proprietary or restricted. This disclosure enables a geo-proximity security and privacy system for assuring control and non-repudiation for wireless-enabled devices by relying upon location and trusted network relationships among a set of wireless-enabled devices, where one or more devices may act as a control or master key. Security in a digital society may be benefited by the establishment of digital walls that are as flexible as the world of cyberspace to be erected whenever and wherever wireless-enabled technology is in use. The security protocol may be configured to secure a protected device or the data they contain from loss, theft, abuse or misuse.
