  • Publication number: 20210258156
    Abstract: The invention is a method for updating a first secret data in a credential container including a subscriber identity module. The credential container comprises a set of secret parameters customized for a network operator and is configured to execute a symmetric mutual authentication algorithm using said set. The credential container receives from a remote server a second secret data enciphered using a second algorithm different from said symmetric mutual authentication algorithm and a subset of said secret parameters, the credential container deciphers the enciphered second secret data by using both the subset and a third algorithm and replaces the first secret data with the second secret data.

  • Patent number: 11065905
    Abstract: A method of inserting guilloche patterns in a document, each guilloche pattern being capable of encoding variable alphanumeric data ensuring a different aspect at each guilloche pattern so as to render said document secure using an operation of determining an insertion intensity of each guilloche pattern previously generated on the basis of a mid-gray level of the document near said guilloche pattern. A device for implementing this insertion method. The method further provides for extracting guilloche patterns from a secure document likely to be degraded by determining a contrast card of at least one portion of the secure document that includes the guilloche patterns, identifying, on this contrast card an optimal percolation trajectory, and extracting the optimal percolation trajectory, said trajectory corresponding to the guilloche pattern.
