  • Patent number: 10360361
    Abstract: The invention relates to a computer-implemented method for controlling access of a terminal (118) to an attribute (112) stored in an ID token (100), wherein the ID token (100) is associated with a user, wherein the method comprises receipt of an identification of the terminal (118) by the ID token (100) and checking by the ID token (100) if a session identification validly associated with the identification of the terminal (118) is stored in the ID token (100), wherein, if a session identification validly associated with the identification of the terminal (118) is stored in the ID token (100), the ID token (100) transmits the session identification to the terminal (118) and grants the terminal (118) access to the attribute (112), wherein a subsequent communication with access to the attribute (112) is carried out in an encrypted manner using a session-specific session key, wherein the session-specific session key is stored in the ID token (100) in a manner associated with the session identification or the ide

  • Patent number: 9722792
    Abstract: The disclosure relates to a method for reading at least one attribute stored in an ID token, wherein the ID token is assigned to a user, said method comprising: determining, by a terminal, of whether a contact-based interface of the ID token is present and can be used for data exchange with the terminal. If the ID token does not have the contact-based interface or this cannot be used, implementing a zero-knowledge authentication protocol via a contactless interface of the terminal and ID token; and deriving an ID token identifier by the terminal.

  • Patent number: 9648453
    Abstract: A method is proposed for providing position data for a chip card having portions for receiving or detecting position data of a localization unit by the localization unit, wherein the localization unit is spatially separate from the chip card; transmitting the position data from the localization unit to the chip card via a contactless interface with use of a cryptographic protocol; executing a distance-bounding protocol between the chip card and the localization unit, wherein the distance-bounding protocol then concludes successfully precisely when the spatial distance between the chip card and localization unit does not exceed a predefined maximum distance; and executing a chip card function with successful conclusion of the distance-bounding protocol, wherein the chip card function uses the transmitted position data as position data specifying the current position of the chip card.
