  • Patent number: 11323870
    Abstract: A user equipment for wireless communication, configured to operate in a cellular network, includes a credential container. The user equipment sends a set of payload items to a central server communicatively coupled to the cellular network, wherein the user equipment is configured to send an attach request message to the cellular network comprising a preconfigured qualifier for at least one of the user equipment and the credential container. The user equipment is further configured—to retrieve an authentication request message from the cellular network comprising a random value and an authentication code, —to determine a response token comprising a preconfigured identifier stored in at least one of the user equipment and the credential container and at least one out of the set of payload items, and—to submit said response token with an authentication failure message to the cellular network for forwarding to the central server.

  • Publication number: 20220104013
    Abstract: A method to attach a mobile device to a server, using a protocol having data size encoding constraints which prevents using traditional ciphering, includes an initialization phase using a range of ephemeral IMSIs stored in a batch of credential containers of mobile devices and an associated group master key shared by the server and credential containers having the same range of ephemeral IMSIs to initiate a session using a server random value. The initialization phase uses limited payload in a mobile device-to-server message to send a randomly chosen rIMSI among the range of IMSIs to enable the server to generate keys to initiate a secured communication phase, then using individual keys stored in the mobile device and retrieved by the server with an identifier of the credential container sent in a mobile device-to-server message and with an individualization master key owned by the server.

  • Patent number: 9736676
    Abstract: A method of controlling access to a cellular communication network, for a terminal (MT) identified by a terminal identifier (IMEI) with a subscription identified by a subscription identifier (IMSI), characterized in that it comprises the following steps: creation in a database (DB), of at least one record comprising at least one subscription identifier with at least one terminal identifier, checking that said terminal (MT) together with said subscription are indeed authorized to use the cellular communication network, by verifying the presence in the database (DB) of at least one record comprising the subscription identifier (IMSI) of said subscription associated with the terminal identifier (IMIE) said verification being performed at the time of each attempt at connection of said terminal (MT) or of said subscription, authorization of access or refusal of access of said terminal (MT) to said network according to the result of the verification step.

  • Patent number: 9629196
    Abstract: The invention proposes in particular a method of managing the connectivity of a terminal connectable to a cellular communication network characterized in that it comprises the following steps carried out in the terminal: if the terminal is already connected to the network: on completion of the dispatching of messages or after a predetermined duration following the dispatching of messages, determining whether conditions of configurations required in order to maintain a connection of the terminal to the network are all satisfied, maintaining the connection of the terminal to the network and authorizing the dispatching of the messages only if the conditions of configurations required to establish a connection of the terminal to the network are all satisfied, otherwise interrupting the connection of the terminal to the network, receiving from a management module remote from the terminal a signalling message ordering a disconnection of the terminal.

  • Patent number: 9558340
    Abstract: The invention prevents robots from browsing a Web site beyond a welcome page. When an initial request from an undefined originator is received, the Web site responds to it with a welcome page including a challenge. Then, on receiving a further request from the undefined originator, the Web site can check whether the challenge is fulfilled or not. If fulfilled, the undefined originator is assumed to be a human being and authorized to go on. If the challenge is not fulfilled, the undefined originator is assumed to be a robot, in which case site access is further denied. The invention prevents Web site contents from being investigated by robots while not requiring users to have to log on.
