  • Patent number: 10372932
    Abstract: In various embodiments, methods, devices and systems for securely generating, sealing, and restoring factory-generated calibration and provisioning data for an electronic device are described, in which calibration and provisioning data for an electronic device are generated in a distributed manner and stored on a storage system. The calibration data can be retrieved from the storage system during device assembly and finalized calibration and provisioning data for each electronic device can be stored to the storage system. In one embodiment, a sealing server, to attest to the authenticity of the factory generated data, seals the finalized calibration data. In one embodiment, an electronic device can access a data store containing the factory-generated data and can update or restore calibration or provisioning data for the device from the data store.

  • Patent number: 8725112
    Abstract: To securely factory activate a mobile device according to authorized records, factory activation server generates and sends a signed factory activation record including a signed factory activation ticket. Signed factory activation record and ticket are cryptographically signed using factory private key stored in factory activation server. Factory private key is different from customer private key stored in the activation server that provides activation tickets for customer activation. If factory activation record is valid, application processor (AP) included in the device performs factory activation of the device which includes AP activating to allow for factory testing and rebooting at a predetermined reboot time.
