  • Patent number: 11483140
    Abstract: Trusted nodes in a network perform secure out-of-band symmetric encryption key delivery to user devices. A first trusted node receives a request from a first user device to deliver symmetric encryption keys to the first user device and a second user device, as a pair of user devices. The first trusted node delivers a second symmetric encryption key to the second user device, via trusted nodes. The first trusted node receives confirmation of delivery of the second symmetric encryption key. Responsive to the confirmation of delivery, the first trusted node delivers the first symmetric encryption key to the first user device.

  • Patent number: 9781120
    Abstract: A system on chip comprises a responder unit comprising a set of responder elements and an access control unit associated with an authorization list and the responder unit. An entry of the authorization list defines a set of access requirements in relation to an address space identifying at least part of the responder unit. The access control unit is arranged to: receive a request for access to a target responder element among the responder elements of the responder unit, determine the corresponding set of access requirements for the received access request from the authorization list, and evaluate the request for access with respect to the determined set of access requirements and generate a first request evaluation result.
