  • Patent number: 10412545
    Abstract: The present disclosure describes techniques and apparatuses for device-to-device radio frequency proximity determination. These techniques, in contrast to conventional cellular and GPS services, can accurately locate mobile devices at relatively low cost. In some aspects, three or more mobile communication devices communicate radio frequency ranging signals and, using information about these signals, a distance and direction between two of the devices is determined. In some other aspects, two mobile communication devices communicate radio frequency ranging signals separated in time, and after movement of one of the mobile communication devices. Using information about these two signals, a distance and direction between the two devices is determined.

  • Publication number: 20190089532
    Abstract: The present disclosure describes apparatuses and techniques for secure device authentication. In some aspects, a public ephemeral key of a device is exposed. A message received from a remote device to authenticate includes a hash of the public ephemeral key of the device, a public ephemeral key and an encrypted public key of the remote device, and an encrypted hash value useful to prove ownership of the public key received from the remote device. An encryption key is generated based on the public ephemeral key of the remote device and a private ephemeral key of the device. The device then decrypts, with the encryption key, the encrypted public key of the remote device and the encrypted hash value. The remote device is then authenticated by verifying, based on the decrypted hash value, that the remote device owns the decrypted public key.

  • Publication number: 20190012595
    Abstract: A neural network may comprise one or more nodes and validation nodes. Each node may execute a computing model and, in response to detecting a model update event in the computing model, may generate model update data and transmit the model update data to one or more validation nodes. The validation nodes may generate an updated computing model based on the model update data. The validation nodes may validate and consent to the model update data and/or the updated computing model using blockchain technologies. The validation nodes may consent to the model update data and/or the updated computing model using a consensus algorithm or by testing the model update data and/or the updated computing model. The validation nodes may write the model update data and/or the updated computing model to a model blockchain, and broadcast the writes to the neural network.

  • Patent number: 9992680
    Abstract: A method includes establishing, in response to a network device operating in the first frequency band, security for the first frequency band and a second frequency band by performing a single authentication in the first frequency band prior to the network device switching operation from the first frequency band to the second frequency band. The method includes transferring, subsequent to the network device switching operation from the first frequency band to the second frequency band, a communication session of the network device from the first frequency band to the second frequency band. The method includes resuming the communication session of the network device in the second frequency band using the security established for the second frequency band (i) during the operation of the network device in the first frequency band, and (ii) prior to the network device switching operation from the first frequency band to the second frequency band.

  • Patent number: 9883472
    Abstract: The present disclosure describes methods and apparatus for beaconing within a wireless network based on an indication of distance. For certain example embodiments, in a wireless network in which a master device is a device configured to transmit a beacon within the wireless network, a first wireless communication device may determine, based on an indication of distance between two wireless communication devices, if the first wireless communication device is to act as a master device. For example, a wireless signal may be received. Based at least partially on the received wireless signal, an indication of distance between two wireless communication devices in a wireless network may be obtained. And based at least partially on the obtained indication of distance between the two wireless communication devices, it may be determined if a first wireless communication device is to act as a master device within the wireless network.

  • Patent number: 9876862
    Abstract: A method of performing service discovery is implemented in a first communication device. In the method, a service discovery request is generated that contains a first identifier associated with a requested service and does not contain a second identifier associated with the requested service. The first communication device is caused to transmit the service discovery request. A service discovery response, received by the first communication device from a second communication device, is processed. The service discovery response contains the second identifier and does not contain the first identifier. At least the second identifier is utilized to determine that the second communication device provides the requested service.
