  • Publication number: 20190261166
    Abstract: A method for pairing a first terminal, called an initiator terminal seeking to transmit and receive data, with a second terminal, called an acceptor terminal. Such a method includes: placing an external surface connector of the initiator terminal on a complementary external surface connector of the acceptor terminal delivering a piece of data to the initiator terminal about the presence of the acceptor terminal; determining, by the initiator terminal, of a parameter of connection; and pairing the initiator terminal with the acceptor terminal according to a mode of pairing depending on the determined parameter of connection.

  • Patent number: 10380580
    Abstract: User credit card data or smart chip data or Near Field Communication data is easily transferred from a card reader to a host device via a matrix bar code such as a Quick Response (QR) code. Data transfer is performed by converting the card data into matrix bar code and allowing the host device to take an image and process the image to obtain the card data. Card reader will convert magnetic signal/smart chip/NFC data into machine readable form and then convert it into matrix bar code to be consumed by a device that is capable of capturing the matrix bar code. The card reader has the ability to encrypt the data before converting it into a matrix bar code.

  • Publication number: 20190182036
    Abstract: A method for pairing a first terminal, called a communications terminal, seeking to transmit and receive data with a second terminal, called an acceptor terminal. The method includes: a first non-secured pairing phase for pairing the transactional terminal with the communications terminal, delivering at least one pairing parameter for pairing with the communications terminal, by using a first radio-type bidirectional wireless communications channel; a second phase of secured pairing of the transactional terminal with the communications terminal, the second pairing phase implementing a second unidirectional communications channel used by the transactional terminal to transmit a piece of securing data from the first communications channel to the communications terminal, as a function of the at least one parameter for pairing with the communications terminal.

  • Patent number: 9980083
    Abstract: A peripheral device is provided, which can be coupled detachably with a communications terminal. The device includes at least one connector cooperating, when the peripheral device is coupled with the terminal, with at least one complementary connector on the terminal so as to form a wired communications link between the peripheral device and the terminal. The device has a first wireless communications module capable of communicating with a second wireless communications module on the communications terminal when the wireless communications modules are paired with each other; a reception module to receive an identifier of the communications terminal via the wired communications link; a generating module to generate a pairing code in response to the received identifier; and a transmission module to transmit the pairing code to the communications terminal via the wired communications link so as to configure a pairing between the first and second wireless communications modules.

  • Patent number: 9946882
    Abstract: A method and device are provided for securing entry of an alphanumerical code by a user. The method includes: obtaining, through a first device, information for converting at least one portion of the alphanumerical code into at least one portion of converted code, the information for converting being one-time converting means; a piece of information identifying the information for converting; entering, into a second device distinct from the first device, at least the portion of converted code, converted using the information for converting; and transmitting at least the portion of converted code and the piece of information identifying the information for converting towards a secured server.

  • Patent number: 9768896
    Abstract: A method self-adapts signal quality of non-audio data exchanged via an audio channel between a mobile terminal and a payment accessory. The method includes at least one iteration of the following acts: reception, by the mobile terminal, of a reference signal transmitted by the payment accessory; analysis, in the mobile terminal, of the received reference signal, the analysis delivering at least one item of information representative of the quality of the reference signal, referred to as quality information; transmission, by the mobile terminal to the payment accessory, of the quality information. In the above iteration, the roles of the mobile terminal and the payment accessory can be switched.
