  • Publication number: 20180248865
    Abstract: Disclosed are various embodiments that perform confidence-based authentication of a user. An identification of a user account is obtained from a user, and a minimum confidence threshold is determined. Multiple authentication challenges are presented to the user. Responses are obtained from the user to one or more of the challenges, with each response having a corresponding authentication point value. A confidence score is generated for the user, where the confidence score is increased by the respective authentication point values of the correct responses. The user is authenticated as being associated with the user account in response to determining that the confidence score meets the minimum confidence threshold.

  • Patent number: 10063592
    Abstract: A variety of different mobile computing devices, such as a laptop, tablet or smartphone, may be used in a mixed set of computing environments. At least some of the computing environments may be hostile computing environments where users of the mobile computing devices may be exposed to unknown risks. Furthermore, the mobile computing devices may be unable to determine if a network in a particular computing environment is in fact the network the mobile device determines it to be. A beacon device may be attached to a network and provide mutual authentication for mobile devices in the computing environment. The beacon device may be paired with the mobile devices in order to generate secret information useable in mutual authentication of the mobile device and the beacon device.

  • Patent number: 10038729
    Abstract: One or more cooperative network servers establish connections with a plurality of access points to form a cooperative network. The plurality of access points may be operated by a plurality of different individuals. Incentives such as reciprocal usage, remuneration, and so forth may encourage participants to join the cooperative network. Data may be passed from an originating device through the access point to a datacenter, which may transfer the data to another datacenter which sends the data to another access point which ultimately provides the data to a destination device. The transfer between datacenters may use a high capacity backbone which may provide lower latency, reduced data transfer cost, and so forth.
