  • Patent number: 10014934
    Abstract: A method for providing eavesdropping detection of an optic fiber communication between two users includes the steps of exchanging both data and probe signals through at least two channels (400, 500) between the users, exchanging probe signals (143) on one channel (500 or 400) between quantum probe signal terminals, extracting a key for authentication from the probe signals, and exchanging data signals (142) between transmission units on another channel (400 or 500). A first portion of the key generated by the quantum probe signal terminals is used to authenticate the terminals, wherein a second portion of the key is dedicated to define commutation occurrences of commutation devices adapted to commutate the use of the channels (400, 500) for data (142) and probe (143) signals, thus detecting an eavesdropping event (300) which triggers an alarm (750). A further portion of the key can be used to encrypt the messages.

  • Patent number: 9407636
    Abstract: An apparatus and method for securely suspending and resuming the state of a processor. For example, one embodiment of a method comprises: generating a data structure including at least the monotonic counter value; generating a message authentication code (MAC) over the data structure using a first key; securely providing the data structure and the MAC to a module executed on the processor; the module verifying the MAC, comparing the monotonic counter value with a counter value stored during a previous suspend operation and, if the counter values match, then loading processor state required for the resume operation to complete. Another embodiment of a method comprises: generating a first key by a processor; securely sharing the first key with an off-processor component; and using the first key to generate a pairing ID usable to identify a pairing between the processor and the off-processor component.
