  • Patent number: 10154020
    Abstract: Approaches, techniques, and mechanisms are disclosed for providing referral identity systems and services. The referral identity system can provide a hardware based system for identifying users and the devices they are using and recognizing referrals from one device to another and/or from one user to another. Each of the users can be uniquely identified using a device identifier associated with a device that the user is using. The authentication and identity services can be used to license software and/or devices coupled with such software dynamically using integrated hardware, software, and firmware, and provide a validated identification difficult to spoof.

  • Patent number: 9690952
    Abstract: A system and method of generating an encryption key in a self-encrypting mass storage device that includes using a manual input device as input for a micro-controller that contains a cyclic counter. An input device event triggers the micro-controller to read the current state of the cyclic counter. An accumulation of cyclic counter values is used as a source of entropy to seed a deterministic random number generator. The output of the deterministic random number generator is used as an encryption key for encryption/decryption processes within the mass storage device.

  • Patent number: 9300203
    Abstract: A battery power supply with extended shelf-life is composed of a plurality of batteries connected in series with a switching element and voltage booster. The switching element is composed of a transistor in parallel with a passive component that produces a voltage drop when the transistor is off. The voltage booster maintains an output voltage at set value when battery capacity deteriorates. A micro-controller is used to monitor voltage potentials to detect the presence of an external load. When no load is detected, all active components are disabled to conserve energy and avoid self-discharge.
