  • Publication number: 20220255735
    Abstract: Blinding techniques can be used to obfuscate or otherwise modify a quantum-secure public key (and the corresponding private, or secret, key) such as a lattice-based public key. Blinding of a public key can include selecting a blinding parameter, which can be a vector or matrix, and applying the blinding parameter to the public key. A corresponding modification can be applied to the private key such that data encrypted using the blinded public key can be decrypted using the blinded public key. When a device needs to send a public key in the clear, e.g., in the course of establishing a secure communication session, the device can generate a blinded public key from its static public key and send the blinded key instead of the static public key.

  • Publication number: 20200279258
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and computer readable media are provided for improving the usability of a cryptogram generated in a first cryptographic protocol such as triple-DES. The methods may generate a first cryptogram using a first identifier in a first cryptographic protocol, stored in a key store within an insecure memory of the mobile communication device, generate, within a secure memory of the mobile communication device, a second cryptogram using a second identifier in a second cryptographic protocol, stored in the secure memory, combining, the first cryptogram and a number of characters of the second cryptogram equal to the length of the first cryptogram to generate a third cryptogram and transmitting the third cryptogram to an payment processing network to validate a transaction. A transaction associated with the third cryptogram may be validated by an authorization entity or an issue entity.
