  • Publication number: 20210218555
    Abstract: Disclosed herein is a data storage device with storage medium that stores encrypted user content data. A cryptography engine uses a cryptographic key to decrypt the encrypted user content data. An access controller receives, from a user device, a request to register the user device and generates a challenge for a manager device. The manager device is located remotely from the data storage device. The controller sends, to the user device, the challenge for the manager device; receives, from the user device, a response calculated by the manager device to approve the request to register; calculates the cryptographic key based at least partly on the response calculated by the manager device; and creates and stores authorization data associated with the user device. The authorisation data indicates the cryptographic key, to register the user device with the data storage device.

  • Publication number: 20210216653
    Abstract: Disclosed herein is a data storage device comprising a data path, an access controller, and a data store. The data path comprises a data port configured to transmit data between a host computer system and the data storage device; a non-volatile storage medium configured to store encrypted user content data; and a cryptography engine connected between the data port and the storage medium and configured to use a cryptographic key to decrypt the encrypted user content data stored on the storage medium in response to a request from the host computer system. The access controller is configured to store on the data store multiple entries associated with multiple respective registered devices. The multiple entries comprise authorization data indicative of cryptographic keys that selectively provide user access or manager access for each of the multiple registered devices.

  • Publication number: 20210218566
    Abstract: Disclosed herein is a data storage device comprising a data path and an access controller. The access controller generates a recovery private key, generates encrypted authorization data based on the recovery private key, stores the encrypted authorization data, and sends the recovery private key to a manager device. When recovery is desired, access controller receives a recovery public key, calculated based on the recovery private key, from a recovery manager device, decrypts the encrypted authorization data based on the recovery public key, generates a challenge for the recovery manager device based on the decrypted authorization data, sends the challenge to the recovery manager device over the communication channel that is different from the data path, receives a response to the challenge from the recovery manager device over the communication channel, and based at least partly on the response, enables decryption of the encrypted user content data.

  • Publication number: 20210173944
    Abstract: Disclosed herein is a data storage device comprising a data path and an access controller. The data path comprises a data port configured to transmit data between a host computer and the data storage device and registers with the host computer system as a block data storage device. A non-volatile storage medium stores encrypted user content data. A cryptography engine is connected between the data port and the storage medium and uses a key to decrypt the encrypted user content data. A data store stores multiple entries comprising authorization data associated with respective authorized devices. The access controller receives from a manager device a public key associated with a private key stored on a device to be authorized, creates the authorization data, and stores the authorization data in association with the public key in the data store, thereby registering the device to be authorized as one of the authorized devices.

  • Patent number: 10891672
    Abstract: A system for facilitating a purchasing decision is provided. The system includes a decision-making computing device configured to obtain purchase criteria, to apply the purchase criteria to a list of available purchases to determine a list of candidate purchases, and to determine a final purchase decision from the list of candidate purchases. The decision-making computing device determines the final purchase decision, at least in part, based on user input provided by a user of a user computing device. The user input is provided through an interactive decider configured to gamify the purchasing decision process, at least in part, by executing one or more interactive modules which may be in the form of a game, an animation, a simulation, and the like. If a user confirms a final purchase decision, the decision-making computing device may then initiate a purchasing process.

  • Publication number: 20200371245
    Abstract: A satellite navigation system including a digital controlled reception pattern antenna (DCRPA) subsystem and a global navigation satellite system (GNSS) receiver. The overall system is designed so that all radio frequency (RF) processing and digital sampling are incorporated in the DCRPA subsystem. The RF signal from each element of the DCRPA array is digitized separately. Then the resultant digital samples are combined into a single bit stream which is transmitted to the GNSS receiver. Preferably the GNSS receiver is a software defined radio. The arrangement allows the DCRPA subsystem and the GNSS receiver to be connected with a single coaxial cable. Such an arrangement would allow simple retrofit of CRPA antennas to existing airframe designs as well as simple and inexpensive installations on new aircraft designs.

  • Publication number: 20190340654
    Abstract: Systems and methods are described which focus on targeting and mobilizing specific populations of voters who are present in every voting district, including infrequent voting moderate voters in gerrymandered highly partisan districts. Based on population segmentation modeling and data analysis, desired voters are targeted. An individualized message is developed for each targeted voter, the message presenting the voting records of that voter's (i) close friends, (ii) colleagues, (iii) family members, and (iv) other social influencers in relation to the voter's own record. The individualized message can be delivered to each targeted individual via a variety of individually addressable communication means, including but not limited to direct mail, e-mail, and digital outreach including banner, display, mobile, online application, and social media on-line advertising. Such individualized messages can successfully mobilize large numbers of the target voters.

  • Patent number: 10365374
    Abstract: The present disclosure is directed to a receiver for Automatic Dependent Surveillance Broadcast (ADS-B) verification of a target aircraft including a first input for receiving flight tracking information from a target aircraft that indicates positional information of the target aircraft. The receiver further includes a second input for receiving positional and heading information indicating the location and orientation of a multi-element array antenna configured to be attached to the receiver, and a processing module that generates a measured bearing derived from angle of arrival data, and an expected bearing of the target aircraft derived from the indicated positional information of the target aircraft and the positional and heading information defining the receiver location and orientation. A comparator compares the expected bearing to the measured bearing and verifies the ADS-B flight tracking information of the target aircraft and outputs an indication of authenticity based on the verification.

  • Patent number: 10111333
    Abstract: An embodiment of a power-supply module includes a molded package, power-supply components disposed within the package, and an inductor disposed within the package and over the power-supply components. For example, for a given output-power rating, such a power-supply module may be smaller, more efficient, and more reliable than, and may run cooler than, a power-supply module having the inductor mounted outside of the package or side-by-side with other components. And for a given size, such a module may have a higher output-power rating than a module having the inductor mounted outside of the package or side-by-side with other components.
