  • Publication number: 20140040629
    Abstract: A system and method is provided for generating a one-time passcode (OTP) from a user device. The method includes providing a passcode application and a cardstring defined by a provider account to the user device. The passcode application is configured to generate a passcode configured as a user OTP for the provider account, using the cardstring. The cardstring is defined by at least one key camouflaged with a personal identification number (PIN). The key may be camouflaged by modifying and encrypting the modified key under the PIN. The key may be configured as a symmetric key, a secret, a seed, and a controlled datum. The cardstring may be an EMV cardstring; and the key may be a UDKA or UDKB. The cardstring may be an OTP cardstring, and the key may be a secret configurable to generate one of a HOTP, a TOTP, and a counter-based OTP.

  • Publication number: 20130275541
    Abstract: Systems and methods for replicating data from a master server to a replica or backup server include capturing a read event associated with a retrieved file at the master server. The retrieved file may be generated by updating a reference file with remotely stored data. Attributes associated with the retrieved file may be checked to determine if they include attributes associated with the reference file, and if they do not, at least a portion of data and one or more attributes of the retrieved file may be copied or replicated to the replica server. The captured read event may be generated when an application attempts to access or read the retrieved file. An event associated with generation of the reference file may also be captured at the master server, and copies to the replica server.

  • Patent number: 8533460
    Abstract: A method is provided for generating a human readable passcode to an authorized user including providing a control access datum and a PIN, and generating a unique machine identifier for the user machine. The method further includes modifying the controlled access datum, encrypting the controlled access datum using the PIN and/or a unique machine identifier to camouflage the datum, and generating a passcode using the camouflaged datum and the PIN and/or the unique machine identifier. A mobile user device may be used to execute the method in one embodiment. The passcode may be used to obtain transaction authorization and/or access to a secured system or secured data. The unique machine identifier may be defined by a machine effective speed calibration derived from information collected from and unique to the user machine.

  • Publication number: 20130227699
    Abstract: Provided herein are systems and method enabling secure virtual image access in a virtual or cloud computing environment. The systems and methods include assigning a status to indicator to guest virtual machines (virtual images) that provide applications and other services to cloud consumers in the cloud environment. A virtual appliance machine in the cloud environment maintains the status of the guest virtual machines and makes decisions based on the status as to whether to allow access to the guest virtual machines. These decisions are transmitted to local elements on the guest virtual machines, which enforce access control on a local level. In this manner, unauthorized virtual image access is prevented providing increased security and data integrity.

  • Publication number: 20130227550
    Abstract: Provided herein are systems and methods for providing isolated virtual image communication in a virtual computing environment. Initially, a guest virtual machine that is activated in a virtual computing environment may be isolated into a private network. A service request may then be formulated at the guest virtual machine and addressed to a predetermined non-existent address. The request is then ostensibly sent to the predetermined address, whereupon the service request is actually transmitted to a shared resource with a security appliance machine in the virtual computing environment. The request is then forwarded to the security appliance machine and a reply formulated. The reply is sent back to the guest virtual machine via the shared resource.
