  • Patent number: 9749131
    Abstract: A system, apparatus, method, and machine readable medium are described for authentication with asymmetric cryptography. For example, a method in accordance with one embodiment comprises: generating a challenge at a server; encrypting the challenge at the server using a public encryption key; transmitting the encrypted challenge to a connected device having a first connection over a network with the server; providing the encrypted challenge from the connected device to a user device; decrypting the encrypted challenge using a private encryption key corresponding to the public encryption key to determine the challenge; converting the challenge to a converted challenge, the converted challenge having a different format than the original challenge; receiving the converted challenge at the connected device and providing the converted challenge from the connected device to the server; and validating the converted challenge at the server to authenticate the user.

  • Patent number: 9413533
    Abstract: A system, apparatus, method, and machine readable medium are described for authorizing a new authenticator with a relying party. For example, one embodiment of a method comprises: identifying a plurality of relying parties with which an old authenticator is registered; generating at least one key for each of the plurality of relying parties; authenticating with each of the relying parties using a client having the old authenticator configured thereon, the client authorizing the new authenticator by providing an authorization object to each relying party comprising the at least one key, data identifying the new authenticator, and cryptographic data to be used by the relying party to verify the authorization object; and wherein, in response to verifying the authorization object, each relying party registers the new authenticator.

  • Patent number: 9367676
    Abstract: A system, apparatus, method, and machine readable medium are described for performing authentication using environmental data. For example, one embodiment of a method comprises: collecting environmental sensor data from one or more sensors of a client device; using a geographical location reported by the device to collect supplemental data for the location; comparing the environmental sensor data with the supplemental data to arrive at a correlation score; and responsively selecting one or more authentication techniques for authenticating a user of the client device based on the correlation score.

  • Patent number: 9219732
    Abstract: A system, apparatus, method, and machine readable medium are described for transparently requesting a new random challenge from a server within an authentication framework. For example, one embodiment of a method comprises: transmitting a random challenge and an indication of a timeout period associated with the random challenge from a server to a client within the context of a network registration or authentication process using authentication devices communicatively coupled to the client; automatically detecting that the random challenge is no longer valid based on the timeout period; and responsively transmitting a request for a new random challenge from the client to a server, wherein transmitting is performed transparently to a user of the client.
