Cellular Telephone Cryptographic Authentication Patents (Class 380/247)
  • Patent number: 11907072
    Abstract: A controller used in a computing device executes the following steps. When a security profile stored in a storage device is successfully verified, according to a security profile configuration stored in the controller, an operation mode described in the security profile is used. When the used operation mode is in a non-secure mode, the booting of the computer device is directly completed. When the used operation mode is a secure mode and a main BIOS of the computing device is not valid, at least one BIOS stored in the storage device is used to recover the main BIOS, and the computer device is rebooted. When the used operation mode is a secure mode and the main BIOS is valid, but the storage device does not store the main BIOS, the main BIOS is backed up and to be stored in the storage device.

    Abstract: A calculation process is efficiently performed to a text file in which one or more records are included, each of the records includes one or more cells having an arbitrary length, and each of the cells includes arbitrary pieces of characters. A parameter setting apparatus sets a maximum value Scsv and a minimum value scsv of a size of character strings for one record by using attribute information as an input, a maximum value Senc of a total size of encode information, a maximum value Sss of a total size of a calculation value obtained by performing specific calculation to the encode information, and a total size Sref of reference information, obtains a function value of C/(Scsv+Senc+Sref) as the number of records which is a process unit of encoding and calculation, and obtains a function value of f0/I·r·Scsv as the number of parallels in the calculation process. Here, C is a cache memory size, M is a main memory size, and f0 is a function value of scsv·M/(scsv+Senc+max(Sref,Sss)).

  • Patent number: 11882070
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communication are described. Wireless communications systems may support beamformed transmissions between devices (e.g., to improve coverage range). The beamformed transmissions may depend on discovery and maintenance of receive and transmit beams over which a given device may communicate with another device. Various receive and transmit beams for a given device may be compared using reference signals. As the number of devices attempting to access a cell increases, the number of reference signals to be transmitted may scale proportionally. Large numbers of reference signals may flood time-frequency resources of the system and/or require excessive processing at a mobile device. Scrambling sequences for reference signals may be employed to improve efficiency of resource usage. In aspects, the scrambling sequences may be implicitly determined (e.g., based on resources over which the access request was transmitted).

    Abstract: Determining a level of congruence between modality-event characteristics is disclosed. Information can be collected from an event input source via one or more information collection modalities. Modality-event characteristics can be determined from this information. A level of congruence between the modality-event characteristics can be determined to enable initiating a response based on the level of congruence. The level of congruence can be based on satisfying a rule related to congruence between modality-event characteristics, user profile information, etc. The level of congruence can be related to a probability that the several inputs collected for an event, collected by a plurality of modalities, embody characteristics that are associated with the event occurring according to determined notions embodied in the rule and profile. Determining the level of congruence can support assertions that each input, across differing modes of capturing said input, accords with the expected inputs for an event.

  • Patent number: 11360192
    Abstract: This document describes techniques and systems for reducing a state based on sensor data from an Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) and radar. The techniques and systems use inertial sensor data from an IMU as well as radar data to reduce states of a user equipment, such as power, access, and information states. These states represent power used, an amount of access permitted, or an amount of information provided by the user equipment. The techniques manage the user equipment's states to correspond to a user's engagement with the user equipment, which can save power, reduce unwarranted access, and reduce an amount of information provided when the user is not engaged with the user equipment, thereby protecting the user's privacy.

  • Patent number: 11288908
    Abstract: Aspects of the invention are directed towards method and system for providing secure access to a user inside the premises. One or more embodiments of the invention describe receiving a user defined pre-access condition for a predetermined time by an input interface coupled to an intrusion panel. The pre-access condition for a user are authenticated and an authentication result is notified to a cloud server. The authentication is confirmed based on the pre-access condition together with geo-location information of the user within a defined geo-fencing boundary thereby satisfying dual authentication and transmitting the authentication result to the cloud server. A preset emergency notification and location tracking information are triggered on breach of the pre-access condition and/or geo-location information to a predefined user.

  • Patent number: 11233783
    Abstract: Methods and apparatuses for authentication in a computer network system based on security credentials issued for client hosts by a remote security authority are disclosed. In response to detection that a client host is prevented from obtaining security credentials from the remote security authority for use in accessing a target host, the client host can obtain an emergency security credential from a storage of emergency security credentials. The emergency security credential with an error state indication can be send from the client host to the target host for use in the authentication.
