  • Patent number: 11202203
    Abstract: A method for securing a direct communication connection between a first and a second user equipment, both configured to operate with base stations of a wireless network, in which the first user equipment maintains an authentication code received from a first security center accessible via the wireless network, said first security center being assigned to a first area, the method comprising the steps for the first user equipment of: maintaining a trust level of the authentication code, reducing the trust level relating to the time of last access to one of the base stations of the wireless network, submitting to the second user equipment the authentication code and the trust level, for setting up the direct communication connection, and in case of reception of a confirmation transmission from the second user equipment: setting up the direct communication connection with the second user equipment.

  • Patent number: 10912134
    Abstract: A method for a wireless terminal communicating with a base station of a cellular network, the terminal operating in enhanced coverage mode and configured to set up a communication session with the base station by means of at least one of a direct communication link and a sidelink communication link using a second wireless terminal. The method comprises: determining a quality of the direct communication link with the base station, determining a quality of a communication link to a second wireless terminal capable of communicating with the base station, initiating transmission of a link quality message to the base station, the link quality message comprising information relating to the quality of the communication link, receiving a response from the base station indicating if the direct communication link or the sidelink communication link is to be used, requesting a communication session via the indicated communication link.
