  • Patent number: 10389531
    Abstract: An authentication system includes a terminal having a transmitter, a processor, and a memory, and a server having a receiver, a processor and a memory. The terminal transmits request information to the server. The terminal acquires time information, generates a first one-time password at a pre-determined cycle by using the time information within the terminal, and generates encryption information which is acquired by encrypting the request information using the first one-time password as a key, the encryption information being transmitted from the terminal to the server. The server acquires time information within the server, generates a second one-time password at the pre-determined cycle as the cycle within the terminal by using the time information within the server, generates reference information which is acquired by decoding the encryption information using the second one-time password as a key, and compares the request information with the reference information.

  • Patent number: 10230997
    Abstract: A resolution converter converts input image data to N types (N is a plural number) of image data having resolutions different with each other. A secret sharing unit performs secret sharing schemes so that the plurality of pieces of image data are respectively divided into n pieces (n is an integer equal to or more than N+1 and the same value in all of image data) of distributed data and the distributed data is reconstructed to original image data using k pieces (k is an integer equal to or more than 2 and equal to or less than n and different value for each piece of image data) among n pieces. A data combination unit generates n pieces of combination data by combining distributed data selected one by one so as not to overlap with each of resolutions and stores each piece of the combination data in different storages.

  • Patent number: 10015159
    Abstract: Provided is a terminal authentication system including a client terminal and a server device. The client terminal transmits first information based on secret information different for each client terminal and a client certificate including a hash value of the secret information which is derived from the secret information, to a server device. The server device receives the first information and the client certificate, derives a hash value from the secret information based on the first information using a unidirectional function, and authenticates the client terminal on the basis of the derived hash value and the hash value of the secret information which is included in the client certificate.

  • Patent number: 9331984
    Abstract: In a secret sharing process based on an improved threshold scheme, secret data is shared as shared data parts equal to or greater than a threshold value in number such that the secret data cannot be reconstructed from shared data parts less than the threshold value in number. Each of the shared data pieces is created essentially from a different combination of the secret data pieces and the data pieces for secret sharing computation. The secret sharing process allows an algorithm desired by the user to be freely incorporated, and can prevent the secret data to be easily reconstructed even when more shared data parts than the threshold value are acquired by a third party.
