  • Patent number: 10417849
    Abstract: An integrated security system which seamlessly assimilates with current generation logical security systems. The integrated security system incorporates a security controller having standard network interface capabilities including IEEE 802.x and takes advantage of the convenience and security offered by smart cards and related devices for both physical and logical security purposes. The invention is based on standard remote authentication dial-in service (RADIUS) protocols or TCP/IP using SSL, TLS, PCT or IPsec and stores a shared secret required by the secure communication protocols in a secure access module coupled to the security controller. The security controller is intended to be a networked client or embedded intelligent device controlled remotely by to an authentication server. In another embodiment of the invention one or more life cycle management transactions are performed with the secure access module.

  • Publication number: 20190130676
    Abstract: A portable authentication system includes a security module, that may be a smart card, SIM (Subscriber Identity Module), USB controller with a secure chip, or similar module capable of storing one or more credentials, and an interface module such as a digital badge holder that is able to communicate with the security module, for instance by providing a smart card communication interface. The portable authentication system may be either a single integrated system or a dual system where the security module can be removed or disconnected from the interface system.

  • Patent number: 8782427
    Abstract: This invention provides for progressive processing of biometric samples to facilitate user verification. A security token performs initial processing. Due to storage and processing limitations, false rejections may occur. To overcome this, the biometric sample is routed to a stateless server with greater processing power and data enhancement capabilities. The stateless server processes and returns an enhanced biometric sample to the security token for another attempt at verification. In another embodiment, the security token may have a second failure when verifying the enhanced biometric sample. It can then send the enhanced or raw biometric sample to a stateful server. The stateful server processes the biometric sample and performs a one to many search of a biometric database having a master set of enrolled authorized user biometric templates. The security token uses signals from the stateful server to grant or deny access. In both embodiments, heuristics remain with the security token.

  • Publication number: 20130019100
    Abstract: An intelligent remote device equipped with a security token operatively coupled thereto is processing communications with a security token enabled computer system over a wireless private network. The intelligent remote device is adapted to emulate a local security device peripheral connected to the computer system. Multiple computer systems may be authenticated to using the intelligent remote device. Additionally, various secure communications connections mechanisms are described which are intended to augment existing security protocols available using wireless network equipment. Authentication of a user supplied critical security parameter is performed by the security token. The critical security parameter may be provided locally via the intelligent remote device or received from the wireless network and routed to the security token. Aural, visual or vibratory feedback may be provided to the user to signal a successful authentication transaction.

  • Publication number: 20120144193
    Abstract: A suite of efficient authentication and key establishment protocols for securing contact or contactless interfaces between communicating systems. The protocols may be used in secure physical access, logical access and/or transportation applications, among other implementations. The system authenticates a mobile device such as a smart card and/or mobile phone equipped with a secure element presented to one or more host terminals and establishes shared secure messaging keys to protect communications between the device and terminal. Secure messaging provides an end-to-end protected path of digital documents or transactions through the interface. The protocols provide that the device does not reveal identification information to entities different from a trusted host.

  • Patent number: 8141141
    Abstract: This invention provides for progressive processing of biometric samples to facilitate verification of an authorized user. The initial processing is performed by a security token. Due to storage space and processing power limitations, excessive false rejections may occur. To overcome this shortfall, the biometric sample is routed to a stateless server, which has significantly greater processing power and data enhancement capabilities. The stateless server receives, processes and returns the biometric sample to the security token for another attempt at verification using the enhanced biometric sample. In a second embodiment of the invention, a second failure of the security token to verify the enhanced biometric sample sends either the enhanced or raw biometric sample to a stateful server. The stateful server again processes the biometric sample and performs a one to many search of a biometric database.
