  • Patent number: 10318948
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and computer program products for providing cloud-based application security are disclosed. For example, a server part of a cloud-based application may determine a plurality of security challenges for authorizing a request based on a plurality of security settings of a user account and one or more attributes of the request, issue a first-level authorization challenge and a second-level authorization challenge based on the determining, identify a plurality of available resources from the user account for the request, and responsive to successful completion of the first-level authorization challenge and the second-level authorization challenge, automatically apply two or more of the available resources from the user account to fulfill the request based on the one or more attributes of the request and a physical location associated with the request.

  • Publication number: 20190108523
    Abstract: Systems and methods for managing concurrent secure elements on a mobile device to coordinate with an application or “app” running on the mobile device and an appropriate communications protocol for conducting transactions using the mobile device include: informing, by the processor, the reader device of a preferred app and a communication protocol usable by the preferred app; receiving, by the processor, information about which apps and communication protocols are supported by a reader for processing a transaction; locating, by the processor, a secure element supporting an app and a communication protocol supported by the reader; channeling the communication protocol for the specific configuration of the app and the supporting secure element; activating the secure element that supports the app; and processing, with the activated secure element, using the supported app and communication channel, the transaction with the reader.

  • Patent number: 10120993
    Abstract: A system includes a tag having a machine readable tag identifier (Tag ID) configured to be read by a reader; and a device to be identified by the tag, in which: the device is configured to communicate with the reader; the device has access to a secure Tag ID; and the device communicates a verification to the reader if the machine readable Tag ID communicated to the device from the reader matches the secure Tag ID. A method includes: reading a Tag ID from a tag attached to a device; communicating the Tag ID read from the tag to the device; comparing a secure Tag ID of the device to the Tag ID read from the tag; and responding with a “match” or “no-match” message from the device, according to which the device is either trusted or not trusted as being identified by the Tag ID. A method of verifying a trusted agent (TA) on a device includes: storing a digital signature of the TA in a secure vault of the device; and verifying the TA by verifying the digital signature of the TA each time the TA is used.

  • Patent number: 9769593
    Abstract: Methods and systems utilize a shake and transfer process to initiate a wireless communication and provide a user device with time and location information of the communication, which can be associated with contact information of a user of the other device. As a result, a user has additional information associated with a contact, and the time and location information can be used to determine or track elapsed time and distance traveled between communications.

  • Publication number: 20160335623
    Abstract: Systems and methods for facilitating transactions using contactless proximity communication technology include information or payment flows that are reversed from the conventional sense in that information may flow in direction from a merchant via a consumer mobile device to a financial services provider (FSP). Such payment and information flows can be accomplished without needing to modify infrastructure—such as point-of-sale NFC readers, mobile handsets, or advertising tags and may provide “bridge solutions” for quickly implementing mobile proximity purchase payments.

  • Patent number: 8707048
    Abstract: Various methods and systems are provided for inserting a user-selected pattern below a main application display when sensitive information is being requested or to be communicated. The border of the main application layer may also be modified at this time, either with or without the underlying pattern. This visual change provides the user an assurance that the application or site is authentic and not a phishing attack. The user-selected patterns are stored in secure areas, such as a secure element on the user device or in a cloud accessible by the application or site.
