    Abstract: Methods, systems, and apparatus, including computer-readable media, for predictively providing access to resources. In some implementations, a method includes receiving movement data indicating movement of a mobile device associated with a user while the mobile device approaches a resource is received. A credential of the user authorizes access to the resource. Based on the movement data, the movement of the mobile device is classified as corresponding to an attempt to access the resource. The mobile device is determined to be in proximity to the resource. Before the user interacts with the resource, the resource is caused to be unlocked or opened in response to determining that the credential of the user authorizes access to the resource, classifying the movement of the mobile device as corresponding to an attempt to access the resource, and determining that the mobile device is in proximity to the resource.

  • Patent number: 10387653
    Abstract: One embodiment of the present invention includes a boot read only memory (ROM) with an embedded, private key provision key (KPK) set that enables secure provisioning of chips. As part of taping-out a chip, the chip provider establishes the KPK set and provides the boot ROM exclusive access to the KPK. For each Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM), the chip provider assigns and discloses an OEM-specific KPK that is included in the KPK set at a particular KPK index. Upon receiving a secured provisioning image and the associated KPK index, the boot ROM accesses the KPK set to reconstruct the KPK and then decrypts and executes the secured provisioning image. Advantageously, this enables the manufacturing factory to provision the chip without the security risks attributable to conventional provisioning approaches that require disclosing security keys to the manufacturing factory.

  • Publication number: 20180300324
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and apparatus, including computer-readable media, for contextually relevant document recommendations. In some implementations, a computing device receives context data indicating physical context of a mobile device, the context data indicating a second device in proximity to the mobile device. The computing device identifies a first user associated with the mobile device, and identifies a second user associated with the second device. The computing device identifies a document that is predicted to be relevant to the first user. For example, the document may be identified from among multiple documents in a document collection based at least in part on records indicating document accesses associated with the second user. While the second device is in proximity to the mobile device, the computing device provides data indicating the document that is predicted to be relevant to the first user.
