  • Patent number: 11900746
    Abstract: A system for providing credential activation layered security is disclosed. In particular, the system adds a layer of additional security at ingress and egress points of a location, such as a building. When a user attempts to check in at the location, the user may provide a proof of physical presence, a proof of digital presence, or a combination thereof, such as at a device at the location. In order to activate a credential for accessing physical and/or logical access control systems of the location, the system may authenticate the proof of physical presence, the proof of digital presence, or both. If the system authenticates the user, the user may be checked-in and the credential may be activated so that the user may access the physical and/or logical access control systems of the location so as to gain access to the ingress point or exit via the egress point.

  • Patent number: 11861991
    Abstract: A piece of electronic equipment including a first subsystem such as a touch-sensitive tablet and a second subsystem such as a payment terminal. The first sub-system embeds a first operating system for managing the power consumption of the first subsystem. The second subsystem embeds a specific and secure operating system capable of executing payment transactions. Since the two subsystems execute two different operating systems, an operating state of one of the subsystems may not allow the required service to be implemented if this requires the use of resources implemented by both of the two subsystems. Thus the first and second subsystems exchange data relating to their respective operating state and, where appropriate, change their current operating state as a function of the data relating to an operating state of the other subsystem thus exchanged.
