  • Publication number: 20210359849
    Abstract: A device may receive, from a client device, a request with a single packet authorization (SPA) packet that includes data identifying a universal client device identifier. The device may generate a shared key associated with the universal client device identifier, and may determine that the SPA packet matches a comparison message authentication code (MAC) generated based on the shared key. The device may provide, based on the SPA packet matching the comparison MAC, a MAC associated with the SPA packet to the client device to enable the client device to validate the device.

  • Publication number: 20210352055
    Abstract: A system uses a keyboard application to encrypt and decrypt e-mail, messages, and other digital data. By using quantum random number generators, the system has improved data security. Using a quantum random number, an agent (at a sender side) generates an encryption key which is used to automatically encrypt a message. The encryption key is stored at a key server. The encrypted message will be sent by an application using its standard transmission means such as SMTP, SMS, and others. The encrypted message can be automatically unencrypted by using an agent (at a recipient side) and retrieving the key from the key server. The system also provides an optional double encryption, where the message is encrypted with a user-generated password before being encrypted using the encryption key.

  • Patent number: 11095440
    Abstract: A device may receive, from a client device, a request with a single packet authorization (SPA) packet that includes data identifying a universal client device identifier (UID), a counter, a first one-time password generated based on a first shared key, the UID, and the counter. The device may generate a second shared key associated with the UID, and may compare the SPA packet to a comparison message authentication code (MAC) generated based on the second shared key, the UID, and the counter. The device may determine whether the SPA packet matches the comparison MAC, and may validate the client device when the SPA packet matches the comparison MAC. The device may provide a MAC associated with the SPA packet to the client device to enable the client device to validate the device for a secure communication based on establishing a pre-master key with the client device.

  • Patent number: 10924928
    Abstract: Systems and methods validate that subscriber identity module (SIM) number of an end device connected to a network is the same number that was activated for that device. A network device in a network obtains a SIM number and a universal identifier (UID) for the end device during an activation procedure. The network device generates a unique SIM authentication code based on the SIM number, the UID, and a master key. The network device sends the unique SIM authentication code to the end device as part of the activation procedure. After activation, the network device receives, from the end device, an authentication message that includes a first one-time password (OTP), the UID, a time value, the SIM number, and the SIM authentication code. The network device generates a second OTP based on the UID, the time value, the SIM number, and the master key and validates a pairing of the end device and the SIM number when the two OTPs match.

  • Patent number: 9942274
    Abstract: A method for protecting application servers from network-based attacks and verifying the security posture of end client systems is disclosed. A trust broker system receives a request from a user agent associated with a client system remote from the trust broker to connect to applications and resources associated with the trust broker. The trust broker system verifies the integrity of the client system and verifies the identity of a user of the client system. The trust broker system then determines the access level permitted to the identified user and based on the access level. The trust broker system establishes a connection with the user agent and transmits session information to the server system. The trust broker system sends the user agent connection information, wherein the connection information enables the requesting user agent to connect to the requested server system.

  • Patent number: 9648044
    Abstract: A method for securing communication over a network is disclosed. A trust broker system receives a request to connect to applications and resources from a client system. The trust broker system determines whether the client system is authorized to connect to the requested applications and resources. In response to determining the client system has authorization to connect to the requested applications and resources, the trust broker system determines, from a plurality of potential proxy servers, a proxy server associated with the requested server system and transmits an identification value for the client system to the requested server system. The trust broker system then transmits the identification value to the client system and transmits contact information for the determined proxy server to the client system, wherein all communication between the client system and the requested server system passes through the proxy server.

  • Patent number: 9398050
    Abstract: A method for connecting to a trust broker system is disclosed. The method is performed on a client device having one or more processors and memory storing one or more programs for execution by the one or more processors. The client device connects to a trust broker system upon start-up of the device, wherein the device is not enabled to connect to any other system. The client device transmits information identifying the electronic device to the trust broker system. The client device receives, from the trust broker, information that enables the client device to connect to a server system, wherein the trust broker determines the appropriate server system based on the client device. The client device downloads, from the server system, further instructions for performing the one or more tasks associated with the client device; wherein the downloaded instructions are only retained for the current session.

  • Patent number: 9178924
    Abstract: A system allows first users to connect through an IPv4 web interface to access content (e.g., information and services) of second users who provide the content using IPv6. The second users are effectively mobile web servers. In an implementation, the system is a streaming media network (e.g., life casting) where first users are video viewers and second users are streaming video providers. In the system, a second user runs a home agent client (e.g., plug in) that connects to a home agent server using IPv6. The home agent client and server encapsulate and deencapsulate the IPv6 information. Information is transmitted and routed using IPv6 in an IPv4 environment. Any number of second users connects to the first user's content via an IPv4 web interface.
