  • Publication number: 20200322171
    Abstract: In one example, an apparatus such as an authorization server and method for secure communication between constrained devices issues cryptographic communication rights among a plurality of constrained devices. Each of the plurality of constrained devices comprises no more than one cryptographic algorithm code module per cryptographic function. The method includes receiving a cryptographic communication rights request associated with at least a first of the plurality of constrained devices in response to a cryptographic algorithm update request, and includes providing a response including an identification of a subset of the plurality of constrained devices that have cryptographic communication rights with the identified first of the plurality of constrained devices. A software update server then updates the cryptographic code modules in the sub-set of the plurality of constrained devices.

  • Patent number: 8538893
    Abstract: An electronic transaction evidence archive apparatus and method archives electronic transaction evidence, such as public key based electronic transaction evidence on behalf of a first party. The apparatus and method determines redundant electronic transaction evidence and removes the redundant electronic transaction evidence prior to archival. In one embodiment, the electronic transaction evidence archive apparatus and method indexes received electronic transaction evidence and archives the indexed data elements thereof. When a subsequent archival request is made, the apparatus and method evaluates the index data to determine redundant electronic transaction evidence and discards redundant information to save memory resources. The first party provides the electronic transaction evidence in, for example, an archive evidence bundle, which includes data elements related to a single transaction.

  • Patent number: 7073057
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for public key certificate updates is accomplished when a user of a secured communications system provides, from time to time, a public key certificate update subscription update to a server. The public key certificate update subscription information identifies at least one subscriber subject (i.e., another end-user) that the user desires to obtain real time public key updates when they occur. In response to the subscription information, the server monitors public key certificates of the at least one subscriber subject. When a change occurs to the public key certificate of the at least one subscriber, the server provides an indication of the change to the requesting user. As such, while the user is on-line with the secured communications system, the server can provide the user with real-time updates of subscriber subjects' encryption public key certificates and/or signature public key certificates.

  • Patent number: 6811501
    Abstract: A free-standing partitioned goal and games using the goal is provided. The goal is divided into a series of partitions formed by internal net dividers. The front edge of each partition is secured by an interwoven or integral elastic cord carried by a front edge of the partition. The resilient partitions retain balls which are kicked therein, each partition having assigned to it possible varying point values which facilitate training as well as specific games directed to using the goal.

  • Patent number: 6499110
    Abstract: An apparatus and method facilitates information security policy control for an information security engine by utilizing security policy association data on a per security engine user basis. Security policy association data may include, for example, data representing identification information of the user of the security engine along with corresponding policy identification data. Policy user identification data may be a hash value of the disk image of an executable software application which uses the security engine, along with policy object identification data which indicates which policy (or policies) that particular application is required to use. A security engine obtains access to this information and also obtains comparison information such as generating a realtime hash value of a calling application that is requesting use of the security engine and compares the newly generated hash value to a stored hash value included as the policy association data.

  • Patent number: 6229894
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for accessing user specific encryption information is accomplished upon receiving a request for access to user specific encryption information from a requesting entity. Based on the identity of the requesting entity and/or the type of request, a server determines the requesting entity's authorized level of access to user specific encryption information. Based on the authorized level of access, the requesting entity is provided with controlled access to the user specific information.
