  • Publication number: 20150294308
    Abstract: Mining circuitry may be used to mine digital currency such as bitcoins by computing solutions to a cryptographic puzzle. Successful computation of a solution to the cryptographic puzzle may provide a reward of the digital currency. The mining circuitry may partition the mined reward between a first digital wallet and a second digital wallet. The first digital wallet may be user-provided, whereas the second digital wallet may be hardcoded into the dedicated mining circuitry. The mining circuitry may include control circuitry and multiple processing core circuits. The control circuitry may control the processing cores to solve the cryptographic puzzle via exhaustive search over possible inputs to the cryptographic puzzle.

  • Publication number: 20080049937
    Abstract: Systems and methods for secure messaging are provided. A sender may encrypt content and send the encrypted content to a recipient over a communications network. The encrypted content may be decrypted for the recipient using a remote decryption service. Encrypted message content may be placed into a markup language form. Encrypted content may be incorporated into the form as a hidden form element. Form elements for collecting recipient credential information such as username and password information may also be incorporated into the form. At the recipient, the recipient may use the form to provide recipient credential information to the remote decryption service. The recipient may also use the form to upload the encrypted content from the form to the decryption service. The decryption service may provide the recipient with access to a decrypted version of the uploaded content over the communications network.

  • Publication number: 20070177731
    Abstract: A system is provided that uses identity-based encryption (IBE) to support secure communications. Messages from a sender may be encrypted using an IBE public key and IBE public parameter information associated with a recipient. The recipient may decrypt IBE-encrypted messages from the sender using an IBE private key. A host having a service name may be used to store the IBE public parameter information. The sender may use a service name generation rule to generate the service name based on the IBE public key of the recipient. The sender may use the service name to obtain the IBE public parameter information from the host.

  • Publication number: 20060123238
    Abstract: A system is provided that allows encrypted content to be distributed to users over a communications network. A policy enforcement service may use an identity-based encryption algorithm to generate public parameter information and private keys. Data content may be encrypted prior to distribution using an identity-based encryption engine. The encryption engine may use the public parameter information from the policy service and public key information to encrypt the data. The public key information may be based on policy information that specifies which types of users are allowed to access the data that is encrypted using that public key. A user may obtain a private key for unlocking particular encrypted data by providing a key request to the policy enforcement service that contains the public key. The policy enforcement service may enforce the policies given by the policy information and may provide private keys only to authorized users.

  • Publication number: 20050084100
    Abstract: A system is provided that uses identity-based encryption (IBE) to allow a sender to securely convey information in a message to a recipient over a communications network. IBE public key information may be used to encrypt messages and corresponding IBE private key information may be used to decrypt messages. The IBE private keys may be provided to message recipients by an IBE private key generator. The IBE private key generator and the recipients who obtain their IBE private keys from that generator form a district. District policy information may be provided by the IBE private key generator that specifies which encryption and communications protocols are used by the district. The district policy information may also specify which authentication protocols are used by the district and may set forth how content-based protocols are implemented. This information may be used by senders in sending messages to recipients.
