  • Patent number: 10999082
    Abstract: According to various aspects of the present application, systems and methods are provided for implementing a garbled circuit on a device. Doing so allows the device to perform computations while protecting the computations from being observed or accessed by an adversarial entity. A garbled circuit involves two parties, known as the generator and the evaluator, jointly evaluating a function. Conventionally, a garbled circuit is executed on two different devices in order for the two different parties to jointly calculate the function without each party revealing to the other party private information such as input values to the function. Some embodiments provide for execution of the garbled circuit on a single device by implementing both parties on the device as separate processes. Some embodiments prevent an adversarial entity with physical access to the device from being able to observe calculations performed by the device to evaluate a function.

  • Patent number: 10992337
    Abstract: A High-Order PSK Signaling (HOPS) communications system which adapts sequence-based spread spectrum signaling techniques to the needs of low-power commercial standards. A HOPS signal generation apparatus incudes a seed calculator configured to calculate a series of seed vectors in response to a plurality of time-evolving key values wherein each of the seed vectors includes a plurality of index values calculated based upon the current key values. A sequence generator is configured to generate a series of time-evolving spreading sequences using the series of seed vectors. A modulator is operative to generate the communications signal by spreading the data signal using the spreading sequences. A transmitter transmits an analog version of the communications signal.
