  • Patent number: 11496481
    Abstract: A system and method of establishing a resource provider as a trusted listing are disclosed. The method includes receiving, by a directory server computer, an indication from a user that a resource provider is trusted. The directory server computer is programmed to provide a first level of authentication. The method then includes storing, in a database, data representing the indication from the user that the resource provider is trusted. The method then includes receiving an authentication request message from the user conducting an interaction at the resource provider computer and determining that the data representing the indication from the user that the resource provider is trusted is present. In response to determining, the method includes providing a second level of authentication to the user before the user is allowed to complete the interaction. The second level of authentication is lower than the first level.

  • Patent number: 11474675
    Abstract: Technologies are disclosed for providing a virtual control panel for a controlled device using a controller connected to the controlled device via a near-field communications (NFC) connection. The controlled device may include a transfer memory that is connected to a wireless (NFC) port and a wired port, the wired port being coupled to other internal memory of the controlled device. The controlled device may write parameter data to the transfer memory via the wired port, which is later transmitted to the controller via the NFC connection for presentation via a user interface. The controller may receive (e.g., while the controller is connected or disconnected from the controlled device) adjustments to configurable parameters of the parameter data and transmit the adjustments to the transfer memory via the wireless port for updating the internal memory of the controlled device and thereby adjusting operation of the controlled device.
