  • Patent number: 10185625
    Abstract: A system and method for data storage by shredding and deshredding of the data allows for various combinations of processing of the data to provide various resultant storage of the data. Data storage and retrieval functions include various combinations of data redundancy generation, data compression and decompression, data encryption and decryption, and data integrity by signature generation and verification. Data shredding is performed by shredders and data deshredding is performed by deshredders that have some implementations that allocate processing internally in the shredder and deshredder either in parallel to multiple processors or sequentially to a single processor. Other implementations use multiple processing through multi-level shredders and deshredders. Redundancy generation includes implementations using non-systematic encoding, systematic encoding, or a hybrid combination.

  • Patent number: 8392713
    Abstract: A computer readable medium for activating a software application for execution on a designated computer, where the computer readable medium has stored thereon computer executable instructions for performing the following steps: computing an installation identifier reflective of the software application and the designated computer; receiving an activation code generated in accordance with the installation identifier and a blinding factor value; computing a first verification code as a function of the installation identifier; computing a trial blinding factor value; computing a decryption key as a function of the trial blinding factor value and the activation code; using the decryption key to decrypt a second verification code; verifying that the first verification code matches the second verification code; and, activating the software application for execution on the designated computer.
