  • Publication number: 20220012674
    Abstract: Systems and methods for a package delivery person's device for receiving and reporting a voice confirmation of a package delivery is described. In an example, a package label is scanned, by an operator using a portable scanning and communications device, to identify the package and begin the delivery confirmation process. A time-limited audio recording of a recorded voice proof of delivery that records audio for a determined short period of time is recorded, where a duration of the time-limited audio recording is configurable. The time-limited audio recording is stored at the portable scanning and communications device and is sent from the portable scanning and communications device to a central storage.

  • Publication number: 20140304804
    Abstract: A standalone onsite appliance designed to connect a local network and telephony infrastructure to a hosted cloud environment. The appliance acts as an extension of the cloud by creating a bridge into the local network and providing each local user a portion of the cloud infrastructure. The appliance integrates local and wide-area networking, security services, Voice over IP (VoIP) services, and a virtualized server environment. In addition, the appliance provides offline access to otherwise cloud hosted infrastructure, data, and serves as a failover solution in the event of a loss of Internet connectivity.

  • Patent number: 6959086
    Abstract: A key management scheme for managing encryption keys in a cryptographic co-processor includes the first step of selecting a key from one of a symmetrical key type and an asymmetrical key type. Then, the key bit length is selected. The key is then generated and, lastly, the key is represented in either an external form or an internal form.

  • Patent number: 6708273
    Abstract: A secure communication platform on an integrated circuit is a highly integrated security processor which incorporates a general purpose digital signal processor (DSP), along with a number of high performance cryptographic function elements, as well as a PCI and PCMCIA interface. The secure communications platform is integrated with an off-the-shelf DSP so that a vendor who is interested in digital signal processing could also receive built-in security functions which cooperate with the DSP. The integrated circuit includes a callable library of cryptographic commands and encryption algorithms. An encryption processor is included to perform key and data encryption, as well as a high performance hash processor and a public key accelerator.

  • Patent number: 6654465
    Abstract: A method of generating a recovery key encryption key (RKEK) in a secure manner by an integrated circuit (IC) and a key recovery escrow agent includes the steps of generating by the IC a first number having a private component and a public component, and generating by the escrow agent a second number having a private component and a public component. The public component of the first number is provided to the escrow agent, and the public component of the second number is provided to the integrated circuit. A Diffie-Hellman modulo-exponentiation mathematical operation is performed by the integrated circuit using the private component of the first number, the public component of the first number and the public component of the second number to create the RKEK. A similar operation is performed by the escrow agent using the private component of the second number, the public number of the second number and the public component of the first number to create the RKEK at its end.

  • Patent number: 6631472
    Abstract: A kernel mode protection circuit includes a processor, a program counter, a kernel program fetch supervisor circuit, a kernel data fetch supervisor circuit, a program memory, a data memory, a flip-flop circuit and two AND circuits. The data memory includes two user memories, protected registers and random access memory (RAM). The program memory includes two user memories and a kernel read only memory (ROM). The circuit may operate in either a user mode (kernel ROM is not accessible) or a kernel mode (kernel ROM is accessible). When in the kernel mode the kernel RAM and certain protected registers are accessible only by a secure kernel. The kernel mode control circuit will reset the processor should a security violation occur, such as attempting to access the kernel RAM while in the user mode.

  • Patent number: 6397331
    Abstract: A method of expanding a secure kernel memory area to accommodate additional software code includes the step of digitally signing the additional code by a trusted authority. The code has a digital signature to authenticate the source of the code and to control what code can be added to the secure kernel. The new code is copied into an unprotected memory where the digital signature is verified. The digital signature includes a unique integrated circuit (IC) identification number, which provides the IC manufacturer with the ability to control the secure kernel memory expansion of all or each of the ICs. If the code is authenticated via the digital signature, then those memory blocks are locked-in as protected memory and thus given “secure kernel” privileges.

  • Publication number: 20010056540
    Abstract: A hardware secure memory area includes one or more secondary communication buses connected to a main communication bus. The secondary communication buses are coupled to the main communication bus by separate bus transceivers. The bus transceivers provide isolation between the communication buses and between unaccessed secondary buses and the main communication buses. Various external devices, such as memories, may be coupled to the communication buses. Only one bus transceiver may be activated at a time, thus making it impossible for two secondary communication buses to be linked.
