  • Patent number: 10263777
    Abstract: Organically Derived Synchronized Processes provide encryption parameter management in a certificate-less system. A first node generates a parameter data set containing multiple values; uses a seed value stored at the first node to select values from a random parameter data set to form a parameter subset; generates encryption parameters using the subset; encrypts user data using the encryption parameters; generates a signature based at least on the parameter data set; and transmits a start frame including the parameter data set, the encrypted user data, and the signature. A second node receives the start frame; uses a seed value stored at the second node to select values from the received parameter data set to form a parameter subset; generates decryption parameters using the subset; decrypts the user data using the decryption parameters; and verifies the received signature. The encryption and decryption parameters are then applied to further payload data.

  • Publication number: 20180083785
    Abstract: This disclosure provides a system and method for secure communications. The method can enable secure machine-to-machine communications within discrete security groups having two or more communication nodes using a zero knowledge authentication process and related cryptography. A first node in the security group can encrypt payload data using a synchronized data set known to the member nodes of the security group and a parameter data set. A second node in the security group can decrypt the payload data using the seed and the parameter data set. The seed can be provisioned within each node of the security group. The seed can also be provided or changed by a node or another entity to modify the security group membership. Member nodes of the security group can be added or removed as needed. Nodes not having the SDS cannot communicate securely with security group member nodes.

  • Publication number: 20180076955
    Abstract: This disclosure provides a system and method for secure communications. The method can enable secure machine-to-machine communications within discrete security groups having two or more communication nodes using a zero knowledge authentication process and related cryptography. A first node in the security group can encrypt payload data using a synchronized data set (SDS) known to the member nodes of the security group. The SDS can have a seed. A second node in the security group can decrypt the payload data using the seed. The seed can be provisioned within each node of the security group. The seed can also be provided or changed by a node or another entity to modify the security group membership. Member nodes of the security group can be added or removed as needed. Nodes not having the SDS cannot communicate securely with member nodes.

  • Patent number: 9037631
    Abstract: The Distributed Queue Switch Architecture (DQSA) family of protocols has previously focused upon fundamental research and computer-aided simulations. Distributed Queue Wireless Arbiter (DQWA), however, is the first member of the protocol family presented as a fully-drawn Medium Access Control protocol specification with cross-layering for reporting Physical layer characteristics, such as channel and state information, which can then be shared among nodes for security, quality and energy performance.
