  • Publication number: 20140173270
    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.

  • Patent number: 8737617
    Abstract: In order to protect SSL encrypted communication from MITM attacks, a server certificate is used in the communication. However, operation of the server certificate is not simple, and the certificate is not sufficient to protect the communication from the MITM attacks. In SSL encrypted communication in which a password is shared between a client and a server, the client encrypts random number data and a password by means of a public key, determines a value by processing encrypted data by means of encrypted password data, and transfers the thus-determined value to the server. The server eliminates the password encrypted data from the value and back calculates the random number data, which are then decrypted, to thus acquire the random number data generated by the client. A hash value of the random number data is submitted to the client.

  • Patent number: 8307208
    Abstract: In SSL encryption communication in which a client and a server share a password, the client generates random number data, encrypts the random number data with a public key and a password, and transmits the encrypted random number data to the server, so that the client and the server safely share the random number data having a bit length longer than that of the password.
