  • Patent number: 12008096
    Abstract: Methods and systems are disclosed herein for authenticating a user. A security device may use an object associated with a user and a device of the user to authenticate the user, for example, if the user has forgotten a password. A user may insert the object (e.g., a card, or other object) into the security device and may select an option to authenticate via a device that is trusted by both the security device and the user, rather than authenticating by entering a password at the security device.

  • Patent number: 12001586
    Abstract: Auditing data containing sensitive data are stored in a data structure comprising data objects. Each data object comprises one or more pairs of a name and a value. Pairs that are flagged or identified as containing sensitive data are partially encrypted; the value is encrypted using an asymmetric key and the name corresponding to the encrypted value remains unencrypted. Some pairs that are not flagged or identified as containing sensitive data are left unencrypted. Unencrypted data may be stored in the partially encrypted auditing data as plain text. The auditing data may be analyzed to generate business metrics and identify application errors. The auditing data may also be queried, and data objects containing unencrypted pairs and/or partially encrypted pairs may be returned based on matching unencrypted names and/or values to the data query.

  • Patent number: 11966488
    Abstract: Methods and systems of data de-tokenization are described herein to provide solutions to utilizing tokenized data files. A de-tokenization service controller may extract instances of tokenized data by determining a schema associated with a tokenized file, wherein the schema identifies which fields contain tokenized data. A decryption system may decrypt the tokens and send decrypted sensitive values to the de-tokenization service controller. The de-tokenization service controller may then generate a de-tokenized data file comprising a plurality of records corresponding to the plurality of original tokenized records, using the decrypted sensitive values in place of the instances of tokenized data. In some embodiments, the methods may further comprise generating a validated file by adding one or more fields indicating the results of validation based on a set of validation rules.

  • Patent number: 11954230
    Abstract: A system protects personally identifiable information (PII) by implementing an unconventional key management scheme. In this scheme, the system uses a set of keys rather than an individual key for encrypting PII. Different portions of the PII are encrypted using different keys from the set of keys. In this manner, even if a malicious user were to access a key, that key would not give the malicious user the ability to decrypt all of the PII. Additionally, the system generates a new set of keys periodically (e.g., once a month). The system also deletes sets of keys that are too old (e.g., six months old). As a result, even if a malicious user were to access a key, the usefulness of that key would be time limited.

  • Patent number: 11943356
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for persistent login. Such persistent login may be based on linking user identity across accounts of different entities to allow each entity to maintain control over their respective sets of user data, while providing a streamlined user experience that avoids much of the repetitive need to login to different services with different login credentials (e.g., during periods of heavy use). Such persistent login may utilize a set of tokens issued and exchanged between devices of the partnering entities. Such tokens may include an access token, refresh token, and identity token. When a user associated with a first entity requests access to information secured by a second entity, such request may be associated with the access token. If the access token is determined to be expired, the refresh token may be used to refresh the access token, which may also trigger issuance of a new refresh token.

  • Patent number: 11930115
    Abstract: A method by a management node for managing a device operable to join a network includes receiving from the device a request to join the network, the request including a device specific parameter and a token, and generating an authentication parameter from the device specific parameters and the token. The method further includes authorising the device to join the network if the authentication parameter fulfils a validity criterion. Generating an authentication parameter from the device specific parameters and the token includes generating an input including the device specific parameters and the token, computing a cryptographic function of the generated input, and setting an output of the cryptographic function as the authentication parameter. Also disclosed are a method for operating a device, a management node, a device and a computer program.

  • Patent number: 11924196
    Abstract: A communication terminal includes a memory in which identification information associated with a user is stored, a controller that carries out authentication of the user, and a communication interface that transmits a signal including the identification information. When user authentication is successful, the controller sets the communication terminal to a first state in which the signal is transmitted to an external apparatus, and when user authentication is not successful, the controller sets the communication terminal to a second state in which the signal is not transmitted to the external apparatus.

  • Patent number: 11921877
    Abstract: Systems and methods for providing decentralized tokenization with mapping data devoid of sensitive data. A node receives a set of index-key pairs generated by a randomization service external to the node. Each index-key pair in the set of index-key pairs defines a particular index value mapped to a particular random key value. The node creates a mapping structure using the set of index-key pairs. Data-in-transit comprising sensitive data is received. A tokenization service of the node generates a token for the sensitive data using the mapping structure.

  • Patent number: 11914697
    Abstract: A system and method is disclosed for a digital identity (DI) management platform. A carbon identification may be generated to include personal information unique to a user. The personal information may be authenticated by an external entity (e.g., governmental agency) to the digital identity management platform. A silicon identification may be generated for multiple devices registered to the user and may include a unique identifier for each device. A digital identity may be generated that links the carbon identification and the silicon identification The digital identity may be stored within a digital wallet accessible on each device by a user profile created and secured using a blockchain process. A request to access the personal information stored within the digital identity may be received and a predefined trust level will determine the amount of personal information to be provided.

  • Patent number: 11917087
    Abstract: An authentication system supports multi-factor authentication (MFA) when authenticating the identity of a user. A challenge-response portion of the authentication process is delegated to an MFA device—a secondary device within control of the user, but separate from the primary login device that the user is using when initiating the authentication. Communications between the MFA device and the login device are conducted using a short-range wireless communication protocol (e.g., Bluetooth™ or NFC), so that the two devices must be in close physical proximity to each other.

  • Patent number: 11909745
    Abstract: Systems and methods are disclosed for utilizing sender-recipient pair data to establish sender-level trust in future communication. One method comprises receiving raw communication data over a network and testing the received raw communication data against trained machine learning data to predict whether the raw communication data is associated with expected communication data. The raw communication data is sorted for expected communication data, which is further analyzed for sender-recipient pair data and assigned an expected communication pair data score. Senders associated with an expected communication pair data score that meets or exceeds a threshold are labeled and stored in a database as trusted. As a result of the sender-recipient pair analysis, recipients at-risk for being scammed can be identified, senders misidentified as spammers can be properly classified, and machine learning techniques utilized for analyzing raw communication data can be fine-tuned.
