  • Patent number: 11481768
    Abstract: Functional data for use in one or more digital transactions are secured by using an encapsulated security token (EST). In certain embodiments, the EST is created by encapsulating digital data including the functional data using at least two cryptographic systems of two parties. The encapsulation and subsequent de-encapsulation can utilize cryptographic systems of the parties that involve a private key for signing and decryption and a public key for encryption and signature verification. If constructed carefully over a series of rigorous events, the resulting EST can be practically impossible to counterfeit. In addition, a propagation of rights can be tracked for auditing and rights can be easily terminated or modified.

  • Patent number: 11128453
    Abstract: A common vulnerability during a Diffie-Hellman key exchange is a man-in-the-middle attack, where Eve is able to pretend she is Bob to Alice and also pretend that she is Alice to Bob. In an embodiment, after a key exchange is completed, visual image authentication between Alice and Bob can notify Alice and Bob that Eve has launched a man-in-the-middle attack. When Alice's sequence of visual images derived from her shared secret do not match Bob's sequence of visual images, Alice and Bob know that their key exchange has been compromised by Eve. In this case, Alice and Bob should perform their key exchange again. Our invention provides a malware resistant alternative to not using a root certificate during a key exchange. It is well-known that a root certificate can be compromised by an dishonest or corrupt insider. Since the institution has access to the root certificate, there is no guarantee that a rogue network administrator will not use it to personally profit, or breach the security of the system.

  • Patent number: 10943022
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and computer program products are described herein for the classification, tagging, and protection of data objects. Such techniques may be imposed on the data objects automatically regardless of whether the data objects are created/generated/interacted/downloaded/uploaded/accessed on the cloud-based environments and/or on-premises environments. The foregoing techniques are orchestrated from a centralized policy that is treated uniformly regardless of the data objects' environment. Once a data object is identified, it is classified based on multiple criteria and a tag is associated therewith. An enforcement action may be applied to the data objects based on a defined policy. The tag attached to the data object may be used to search for related audit logs that track accesses to the data object. By associating the tag and protection persistently, data object(s) are treated uniformly (i.e., in the same manner) regardless of what environment it is in.

  • Patent number: 10880033
    Abstract: A two stage scrambling design is provided for generating and decoding Resource Spread Multiple Access (RSMA) modulated streams. A User equipment (UE) scrambles each data stream of a set of data streams using a first scrambling sequence to generate a first set of scrambled data streams, and then scrambles the first set of scrambled data streams using a second scrambling sequence to generate a second set of scrambled data streams, wherein the second scrambling sequence is longer than the first scrambling sequence. The UE then transmits the second set of scrambled data streams. A receiving base station determines the first and second scrambling sequences used by the UE and decodes the transmissions received from the UE based on the determined scrambling sequences.

  • Patent number: 10873464
    Abstract: Embodiments of this disclosure provide techniques for securely communicating an IMSI over the air from a UE to an SeAN, as well as for securely validating an unencrypted IMSI that the SeAN receives from the home network, during authentication protocols. In particular, the UE may either encrypt the IMSI assigned to the UE using an IMSI encryption key (KIMSIenc) or compute a hash of the IMSI assigned to the UE using an IMSI integrity key (KIMSIint), and then send the encrypted IMSI or the hash of the IMSI to the serving network. The encrypted IMSI or hash of the encrypted IMSI may then be used by the SeAN to validate an unencrypted IMSI that was previously received from an HSS in the home network of the UE.

  • Patent number: 10853463
    Abstract: A device and method providing audio-based, continuous authentication of a user to provide access to a processing device. A user echoprint model is created while a user interacts with an authentication interface for another authentication method of the device, transparently to the user. The sound waves are user-specific and inaudible. The user-specific sounds are reflected by the user and used to construct an echoprint which can be compared by a previously constructed user-specific, echoprint model. If the result is positive, access to the processing device may be allowed. Access to the processing device is based on the audio authentication or the alternative authentication is based on the result of audio authentication and updates a device state indicating whether the display is on or off and whether the device is locked or unlocked.
