  • Patent number: 11012435
    Abstract: A method and system of authenticating a user are provided. A request for a resource is received from a user device. A predefined number is received. A first number and a second number are created. A first discrete logarithm based on the first number and the predefined number is determined and sent to the user device, together with the second number. A second discrete logarithm is received from the user device. A first pass code is calculated via a third discrete logarithm, based on the second discrete logarithm, the first number, and the predefined number. A second pass code is received via a fourth discrete logarithm, based on the first discrete logarithm, the third number, and the predefined number. Upon determining that the first pass code is identical to the second pass code, the user device is allowed to access a resource associated with the computing device.

  • Publication number: 20210140208
    Abstract: A fastening structure includes a first casing, an ejection mechanism, a second casing, and a switch mechanism disposed at the second casing. The first casing has a slot where the ejection mechanism is disposed in. The switch mechanism includes a switch component pivotally connected to the second casing along a first axis, a first spring connected to the second casing and switch component, and a hook pivotally connected to the switch component along a second axis. When the hook rotates towards the first casing around the second axis, the hook drives the switch component to move to stretch the first spring, so the hook is engaged with the slot and presses against the ejection mechanism. When the switch component rotates with respect to the second casing, the switch component drives the hook to be separated from the slot, and the ejection mechanism pushes the hook out of the first casing.

  • Patent number: 10999728
    Abstract: A multi-member Bluetooth device for communicating data with a remote Bluetooth device is disclosed including: a main Bluetooth circuit and an auxiliary Bluetooth circuit. In the period during which the auxiliary Bluetooth circuit operates at a relay mode, the main Bluetooth circuit receives packets transmitted from the remote Bluetooth device, and the auxiliary Bluetooth circuit does not sniff packets transmitted from the remote Bluetooth device. But the auxiliary Bluetooth circuit switches from the relay mode to a sniffing mode if the data type of packets transmitted from the remote Bluetooth device changes. In the period during which the auxiliary Bluetooth circuit operates at the sniffing mode, the auxiliary Bluetooth circuit sniffs packets issued from the remote Bluetooth device while the main Bluetooth circuit receives packets transmitted from the remote Bluetooth device.
