  • Patent number: 11409914
    Abstract: The invention is a method for managing a tamper-proof device comprising a plurality of software containers and an operating system. The operating system is able to handle a set of communication protocols with external entities. The operating system accesses a pairing data in which each communication protocol of said set has been associated with a single software container and upon receipt of a message from one of the external entities, the operating system uses the pairing data to route the message to the software container associated with the communication protocol used to convey the message.

  • Publication number: 20220237287
    Abstract: Provided is a method for securing against fault attacks during verification a digital signature of a message on a client device. It performs (S1) at least one check on intermediate parameters that are generated for one that is different from 0 modulo n. It checks that values computed by several executions of the verification algorithm are the same, and checks that at least one mathematical relationship is verified. It performs a signature comparison final step to test equality between one of the intermediate parameters and a part of the digital signature. It triggers (S2) a fault attack countermeasure when at least one of the performed checks has failed.

  • Publication number: 20220231841
    Abstract: A method for accessing a private key is provided. The method includes storing, by a first device, the private key and an associated public key, generating an access token, sending to a second device, the access token, sending, to a first server, an address relating to a decentralized identifier and the access token, sending, by the first server, to a ledger, a request for getting a decentralized identifier along with the decentralized identifier address. By way of the method a solution is provided for accessing, by a first server to be accessed from a second device, based on a decentralized identifier readable from a ledger, a second server, as a proxy to a first device. It allows for authenticating a first device to a first server while keeping the private key only at the first device side (and not at the second device side).

  • Patent number: 11271922
    Abstract: A first server receives from a device(s) an identifier, retrieves a reference credential(s) associated with the identifier(s), generates a reference token(s) using the reference credential(s) and a predetermined key(s) and sends to a second server the reference token(s) and a script(s) for requesting the user to provide a credential(s). The second server gets a device identifier(s) and sends to the device a request(s) by executing the script(s). The device gets a submitted credential(s), generates and sends to the second server a submitted token generated by using the submitted credential(s) and the predetermined key(s) stored by the device. The second server compares each of the submitted token(s) to the received reference token(s) and generates and sends to the first server a comparison and/or an authentication result(s). The invention also relates to corresponding device, first and second server and system.

  • Patent number: 11258798
    Abstract: A method, an entity, and a system for managing access to data. The data is associated with metadata. At least one predetermined access policy for accessing metadata includes, for each client, at least one identifier relating to the client. An entity receives from at least one client device, a data access request that includes at least one identifier relating to the client. The entity determines, based on the associated access policy, whether the metadata access is authorized. If yes, the entity determines, based on the associated access policy, associated first data allowing to access the metadata. The entity accesses, based on the first data, the associated metadata. The entity accesses, based on the accessed metadata and the associated access policy, at least a part of the associated data, as a late dynamic binding of the metadata with the associated data (or a part of it).
