  • Patent number: 11233644
    Abstract: A secure device comprises a secure computing environment (SCE) that stores one or more cryptographic secrets, such as private keys, and is able to receive input from secure input devices such as a keypad or smartcard interface and provide output to secure output devices such as a secure display. The SCE provides safeguards against remote and physical exploits, erasing or rendering unusable the secrets in the event of actual or suspected exploit, protecting the secrets from compromise. The SCE may digitally sign internally generated messages or messages from an external device such as a smartphone. Message signing conditions may be checked and satisfied in the SCE before a digitally signed message is generated. Messages may be automatically signed if they satisfy specified conditions. The secure device may be used as part of a multisignature scheme in which a plurality of private keys are used to create a digital signature.

  • Patent number: 10185936
    Abstract: A system and method for effectuating Electronic Funds Transfer credit messages. The main structural components of the system include a Payment Portal Processor (Web Broker), an Internet Pay Anyone (IPA) Account, a Virtual Private Lockbox (VPL) and an associated Account Reporter, the existing EFT networks, and a cash card for accessing a VPL or IP account. The Web Broker is a software application that provides a secure portal for accessing (linking to) either the user's Demand Deposit Account (DDA) or an IPA account and can be combined with the functionality of a traditional digital Wallet. Consumers use a Web Broker enhanced Wallet to fund their account, shop on the web, pay bills, pay anyone, store electronic receipts and transaction history, and check their recent Web Broker enhanced Wallet activity. The IPA account is a special purpose account with limited functionality for making electronic payments in the form of EFT credit messages.

  • Patent number: 10137293
    Abstract: A medical stopcock which allows easier switching operation of plural branch-tubes. The main body of the stopcock comprises a chamber part with a nearly spherical inner surface, and an upstream branch-tube, a downstream branch-tube and a merge-branch-tube all extending from the chamber part. A valve body of the stopcock comprises a nearly spherical valve main body and a rod-shaped operating part with a guide hole linking the inner surface of the chamber part to the outside. In operation, the rod-shaped operating part is moved along the guide hole through the use of the horizontal flow passages and the vertical flow passage to allow the predetermined branch-tubes out of the upstream branch-tube, the downstream branch-tube and the merge-branch-tube to communicate with one another or to shut-off the communication.
