  • Publication number: 20170293984
    Abstract: A profile manager (PM) server receives a Food Profiling Request Message (FPREM), from a consumer's Wireless Receive/Transmit Unit (WRTU), responsive to a WRTU-initiated food-related event (FEP). The FPREM is created from information in an Input Mobile Element (IME) sent to the WRTU from a FEP provider responsive to its initiation. The IME includes code providing a link to other code directing the FPREM to the PM server. The FPREM includes an identifier for the FEP (FEID) and a consumer food profile class (CFPC). The PM server searches a lookup table for the FEID and the CFPC to determine consumer-pre-authorized attributes for sharing in association with the FEP corresponding to the FEID. The PM server sends, to a processing system associated with the FEP (FEPPS), a Food Profiling Request Response (PFRER), which includes the FEID and one of the attributes or an indication that no attributes are authorized for sharing.

  • Publication number: 20160232624
    Abstract: Methods, apparatus and systems are described. A method, implemented in a Food Event Processing Platform, includes establishing communication with a Wireless Receive/Transmit Unit (WRTU) attempting to process a food-related event (FE). One or more micro-service software components (MSSCs) of the FEPP are identified to process the FE. Information is obtained about a user of the WRTU that was deduced from information regarding transactions engaged in via the WRTU, and FE-related attributes are communicated to the MSSCs. It is determined whether affirmative action from the user is required. If so, a food event involvement trigger (FEIT), including a request for the affirmative action, is sent to the WRTU. A response to the FEIT is received, processed and forwarded to the MSSCs for processing. If the response is positive, the deduced information is provided to a processing system associated with a provider of the FE so it can begin processing the FE.

  • Publication number: 20100220378
    Abstract: A device is disclosed that combines a battery system with an electrochromic system by judicious selection of electrodes and the connection of the appropriate electrodes to generate internal as well as external current flows. This system allows the elimination of a battery component reducing cost and improving manufacturing yield by reduction of the number of parts and number of interconnections. However, the design can be further extended to the combination of a battery system with a sensing system.

  • Publication number: 20080089518
    Abstract: A secret stream of bits begins by receiving a public random stream contained in a wireless communication signal at a transmit/receive unit. The public random stream is sampled and specific bits are extracted according to a shared common secret. These extracted bits are used to create a longer secret stream. The shared common secret may be generated using JRNSO techniques, or provided to the transmit/receive units prior to the communication session. Alternatively, one of the transmit/receive unit is assumed to be more powerful than any potential eavesdropper. In this situation, the powerful transmit/receive unit may broadcast and store a public random stream. The weaker transmit/receive unit selects select random bits of the broadcast for creating a key. The weaker transmit/receive unit sends the powerful transmit/receive unit the selected bit numbers, and powerful transmit/receive unit uses the random numbers to produce the key created by the weaker transmit/receive unit.

  • Publication number: 20070192585
    Abstract: In a wireless communication system comprising at least one wireless transmit/receive unit (WTRU) and a trusted entity, a method and apparatus for processing data during an event, includes storing data in a memory of the WTRU. The stored data is classified in the memory of the WTRU. The WTRU detects an event and transmits a notification signal to the trusted entity in response to the event detected. The trusted entity transmits a readiness signal to the WTRU. The WTRU transmits data classified for transfer to the trusted entity, and the trusted entity stores the data classified for transfer in a memory of the trusted entity.

  • Publication number: 20070053325
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for securing wireless communications are disclosed. A watermark message is encoded to watermark message symbols. A cover message is encoded to cover message symbols. The watermark message symbols are then overlaid onto the cover message symbols to generate a watermark-embedded cover message in a physical layer. The watermark message symbols have a substantially lower amplitude than the cover message symbols. Thus, the watermark message introduces small perturbation around the constellation points of the cover message symbols. The watermark message symbol may span or spread over a plurality of cover message symbols and may be encrypted with a secret key. The watermark message is used for improving receiver performance by transmitting additional information or for security enhancement purposes. The watermarking function may be selectively turned on and off.

  • Publication number: 20070036353
    Abstract: The present invention relates to secret key generation and authentication methods that are based on joint randomness not shared by others (JRNSO), in which unique channel response between two communication terminals generates a secret key. Multiple network access points use a unique physical location of a receiving station to increase user data security. High data rate communication data is encrypted by generating a random key and a pseudo-random bit stream. A configurable interleaving is achieved by introduction of JRNSO bits to an encoder used for error-correction codes. Databases of user data are also protected by JRNSO-based key mechanisms. Additional random qualities are induced on the joint channel using MIMO eigen-beamforming, antenna array deflection, polarization selection, pattern deformation, and path selection by beamforming or time correlation. Gesturing induces randomness according to uniquely random patterns of a human user's arm movements inflected to the user device.
