  • Patent number: 10218682
    Abstract: The present document describes systems and methods that utilize a cryptographic service for establishing a cryptographically protected communication session, such as a TLS connection, between a client computer system and a TLS termination point. The cryptographic service retains cryptographic material associated with a server that is represented by the TLS termination point. The TLS termination point uses the cryptographic service to perform cryptographic operations associated with establishing and maintaining the cryptographically protected communication session. The cryptographic service may be provided by the server itself, a cryptographic server, or a cryptographic accelerator such as an HSM. In some embodiments, the cryptographic service tokenizes unencrypted data to be provided to the TLS termination point. If a cryptographic accelerator is used, the cryptographic accelerator may include facilities to accelerate asymmetric cryptographic operations as well as symmetric cryptographic operations.

  • Patent number: 10193844
    Abstract: A secure messaging system identifies sensitive or restricted content within electronic messages such as E-mail, SMS or MMS text messages, or social network messages, and stores files including such content in a secure folder or bucket. After a first electronic message is identified as including sensitive or restricted content, a file including the sensitive or restricted content is stored in the secure folder or bucket, and a second electronic message including a link to the file or the secure folder or bucket is sent to each of the intended recipients of the first electronic message. When a recipient selects the link, the sensitive or restricted content is provided to the recipient over a secure connection (e.g., an SSL connection) rather than via E-mail. Additionally, recipients of the second electronic message may be authenticated by any method, e.g., an access policy and/or a single or multi-level authentication process.
