  • Publication number: 20180211457
    Abstract: Systems and methods for location-based automated authentication are disclosed. A system comprises a mobile device, a sensor and a backend platform. The sensor and the backend platform are in network communication. The mobile device is operable to continuously transmit Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) signals comprising encrypted transitory identifiers. The sensor is operable to receive a BLE signal from the mobile device when the mobile device is within a predetermined range, and communicate over a network connection the encrypted transitory identifier comprised in the BLE signal to the backend platform. The backend platform is operable to extract a unique identifier and a changing encrypted identifier from the received encrypted transitory identifier, generate a changing encrypted identifier, and validate a user identification by comparing the generated changing encrypted identifier and the extracted changing encrypted identifier.

  • Patent number: 7167877
    Abstract: A method and system for updating a remote database over a network. A plurality of periodic updates, called sendfiles, based on incremental changes to a local database are generated. Each of the periodic updates includes at least one transaction. An initialization update, called an initializing sendfile, including a version of the local database at a start time is generated. Additionally, an identifier associated with the last periodic update generated before the start time and an identifier associated with the last transaction committed prior to the start time are generated.

  • Publication number: 20030084038
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present invention provide a method and system for high-speed database searching with concurrent, transaction-based updating for large database systems. Specifically, a plurality of search queries may be received over a network, the database may be searched, and a plurality of search replies may be sent over the network. While searching the database, new information may be received over the network, a plurality of new database elements may be created based on the new information, a dirty bit may be set within each new database element, a pointer to each new database element may be written to the database using a single uninterruptible operation, and the dirty bit within each new database element may be cleared.
