  • Patent number: 9367676
    Abstract: A system, apparatus, method, and machine readable medium are described for performing authentication using environmental data. For example, one embodiment of a method comprises: collecting environmental sensor data from one or more sensors of a client device; using a geographical location reported by the device to collect supplemental data for the location; comparing the environmental sensor data with the supplemental data to arrive at a correlation score; and responsively selecting one or more authentication techniques for authenticating a user of the client device based on the correlation score.

  • Patent number: 9305298
    Abstract: A system, apparatus, method, and machine readable medium are described for location-aware authentication. For example, one embodiment of a location-aware method for user authentication comprises: determining a current location of a mobile device; identifying a location class corresponding to the current location; selecting a set of one or more authentication techniques to provide a sufficient level of user authentication for a current transaction based on the identified location class.

  • Patent number: 9219732
    Abstract: A system, apparatus, method, and machine readable medium are described for transparently requesting a new random challenge from a server within an authentication framework. For example, one embodiment of a method comprises: transmitting a random challenge and an indication of a timeout period associated with the random challenge from a server to a client within the context of a network registration or authentication process using authentication devices communicatively coupled to the client; automatically detecting that the random challenge is no longer valid based on the timeout period; and responsively transmitting a request for a new random challenge from the client to a server, wherein transmitting is performed transparently to a user of the client.

  • Patent number: 9015482
    Abstract: A system, apparatus, method, and machine readable medium are described for multi-device operations within an authentication framework. For example, one embodiment of a method comprises: detecting N authentication devices on a client, wherein N>1; generating a N cryptographic entities, one for each of the N authentication devices; transmitting a command to the client to register each of the N cryptographic entities into each of the N authentication devices; executing the command on the client and responsively registering each of the N cryptographic entities into each of the respective N authentication devices; and subsequently using at least one of the authentication devices and its associated cryptographic entity for authenticating a user of the client over a network.
