  • Publication number: 20210083877
    Abstract: A system and a method for user authentication and/or authorization, including a passive card to encode a first portion of an authentication or authorization code for a user via capacitive points, and a portable computing device with a capacitive screen to encode a second portion of the code. Each capacitive point is connected to an electronic circuit, being activable by physical contact of the user or with an electrical ground. Once the user has requested access to a specific service or operation, and when at least some of the passive points are activated and the passive card is in contact with the capacitive screen, the device reads the capacitive points, decoding the first portion of the code, and cryptographically signs the decoded portion using the second portion, providing the code, which is used as cryptographic key to grant access to the service or operation.

  • Publication number: 20200403799
    Abstract: It is proposed a technical solution to leverage the level of trust in scenarios with a high number of independent computing nodes from independent and heterogeneous DLT networks. This solution defines the technical modules required to implement a self-governed decentralized infrastructure that ensures that every participant node (computing node) in a DLT network connected to the proposed system (implementing the proposed method) can exploit additional validation and consensus policies in their transactions and smart contracts. Through the proposed mechanism they can enjoy an equivalent level of trust as if all the nodes from the connected networks were part of a single common DLT network. The proposed solution enables the implementation of dedicated validation policies to leverage the level of trust of any of the connected networks without the need of dedicated infrastructure.

  • Publication number: 20200259791
    Abstract: A method and system for controlling internet browsing user security is provided. A control device (120) receives, via a first communication channel, a web page request from a control agent (102) implemented in a browser (101), the browser (101) being installed in a computer device operated by a user. Then, the control device (120) requests, to a control service (130), via a second communication channel, a security level of said requested web page including a status of the user and the presence of risks in the requested web page. The control service (130) executes a security check on said requested web page by checking whether the requested web page is included in a blacklist or a whitelist and also by checking certain risk control criteria of the requested web page. Finally, in response to receipt a result of said security check, the control device (120) allows or denies access to said web page.

  • Publication number: 20200235921
    Abstract: Method and system for recovering cryptographic keys of a blockchain network. A computing device or an element associated with the same has stored a pair of cryptographic keys representative of the identity of the user in a blockchain network, including a public key and a private key. An identity manager maintains a registry of the user in a distributed directory. When a request from the user is received due to the loss/theft of their private key, the information on the public key of the user is eliminated from the registry and the user is revoked as the owner of a smart contract, a new pair of keys is generated, stored in the device or in said element; and the user is identified and authenticated. Once correctly authenticated, the manager receives the new public key of the user, updates the registry and updates the ownership of the smart contract.

  • Patent number: 10715891
    Abstract: An auto-provision method, system and computer programs for FTTH backhaul, midhaul or fronthaul for mobile base stations based on SDN. The method comprises detecting, by OLT when an ONU is connected to an optical termination point and responsive to said detection said OLT notifying a SDN controller. The SDN controller then provides connectivity to a base station connected to the ONU to a first restricted network providing access to a web site with limited connectivity. Then, said web site receives credential information identifying a technician of the base station and, once the technician is connected therein, further receives configuration information specifying which FTTH services the base station requires subscription. The SDN controller then disconnects the base station from the web site and reconnects it to a second network configured to provide access to a core network and to the subscribed FTTH services to the base station.
