  • Patent number: 11087155
    Abstract: An identification device includes: an operation generator that generates a first operation pattern to be executed by a first moving body among moving bodies, and transmits the first operation pattern to the first moving body; an operation detector that detects second operation patterns executed by the moving bodies, using at least one image obtained by at least one image obtaining device; and a target identifier that obtains, from the first moving body, a time at which the first moving body executed the first operation pattern, and compares the first operation pattern with a second operation pattern detected at the time from second operation patterns to determine whether these patterns match each other. When determining that they match each other, the target identifier identifies, as the first moving body, a moving body that is included in at least one image and executed the second operation pattern detected at the time.

  • Patent number: 9509668
    Abstract: Provided is a content distribution method which allows a source device to safely distribute copyrighted content to a sink device in response to a request from the sink device as a trigger. The content distribution method includes a list transmission step S11, a content request step S12, and a content transfer step S13. In S11, a source device transmits metadata which includes a format identifier indicating that content is distributable under the specification of the HDCP and the URL of the content. In S12, a sink device makes a request for content identified by the URL after adding information necessary for authentication processing to the request. In S13, the source device creates an encryption key by performing the authentication processing on the sink device in accordance with the information necessary for the authentication processing, encrypts the content using the encryption key, and transfers the encrypted content to the sink device.
