Communication System Using Cryptography Patents (Class 380/255)
  • Patent number: 11184166
    Abstract: Described is a system for jointly generating a random value amongst a set of servers for secure data sharing. The set of servers initiates a randomness generation protocol where each server in the set of servers selects a randomly generated polynomial and broadcasts a cryptographic hash function of the randomly generated polynomial. Each server sends its value of the cryptographic hash function of the randomly generated polynomial to the set of servers. The randomness generation protocol is used in a multi-party computation protocol to ensure a set of data is securely shared electronically amongst the set of servers via a secure, authenticated broadcast channel.

  • Patent number: 11184768
    Abstract: A user device may connect to a wireless network despite the user device lacking the correct network credentials to access the wireless network. When the user device is unable to connect to a first network due to an incorrect network credential, the user device may automatically connect to a second network to obtain the correct network credentials associated with the first network. The network credentials associated with the first network may enable the user device to then connect and/or reconnect to the first network.

  • Patent number: 11048787
    Abstract: A system and methods for authenticating an electronic signature using a biometric fingerprint includes registering a subscriber to the service. The subscriber asks document signers enter their fingerprint(s) by a fingerprint reader. The fingerprint data is applied to a fingerprint matcher which generates a gallery pair table of fingerprint minutiae for each signer. A secret user ID or operation number is generated. A sharing module splits the fingerprint information into N shares and generates a threshold number S. The secret is applied to the sharing module and N shares of the secret are generated. The N shares of fingerprint data are each combined with one share the secret to form N combined shares. The N combined shares are each stored in different cloud storage locations. Retrieval of the secret to authenticate the signers requires S signers to enter their fingerprints and S combined shares to be downloaded from the clouds.

  • Patent number: 11038683
    Abstract: A first component determines encrypted data representing an event and encrypted threshold data corresponding to an outlier of the event. The first system may process the data using, for example, one or more composite integers, and may send the result to a second system. This second system may subtract the data to determine of the encrypted data is greater than, less than, or equal to the encrypted threshold. If so, the second system may determine that the encrypted data corresponds to an outlier of the data. The second system may send an indication of this determination to a third system.

  • Patent number: 11017447
    Abstract: A system is configured to receive a network resource request from a user device configured with a browsing application, wherein the request includes identification data associated with the user device. The system transmits, to a network resource provider, a request for the network resource, wherein the request transmitted to the network resource provider excludes identification data included in the request received from the user device. The system receives from the network resource provider a response, including a document comprising a field configured to receive payment information for an item purchase. The system receives from the browsing application an indication that an anonymous payment instrument, associated with a first entity different than the user, is to be used to purchase a first item at a first price. The system causes information regarding the anonymous payment instrument to be provided to the network resource provider.

  • Patent number: 10997303
    Abstract: An enterprise security system is improved by managing network flows based on an application type. When a network message having an unknown application type is received at a gateway, firewall, or other network device/service from an endpoint, the endpoint that originated the network message may be queried for identifying information for the source of the network message and the application type may be determined, or the endpoint may periodically communicate application type information to the network device in a heartbeat or other periodic communication or the like. The network message may be managed along with other network traffic according to the application type.

  • Patent number: 10992660
    Abstract: Methods and systems are provided for managing access to a client account related (CAR) resource. When a privilege-constrained (PC) application requests access to an individual client account, a single use authorization (SUA) code is created that is associated with the individual client account. The SUA code is routed to, and returned from, the privilege-constrained (PC) application to authenticate the PC application. The PC application, once authenticated, receives a permitted action token that identifies a limited set of privileges that the PC application is authorized to perform in connection with the CAR resource. The PC application provides the permitted action token to an access service. The access service limits access, by the PC application, to the CAR resource based on the permitted action token.

  • Patent number: RE48631
    Abstract: A method and system for providing selective protection of data exchanged between user equipment (UE) and network is disclosed. The selective protection is applied to a packet, a bearer or an access point name for secure exchange of data between the UE and the network. The network decides to apply selective protection based on configuration of network, configuration of UE, load in the network, battery power availability of UE, type of application running on UE. Further, the UE can request for selective protection based on the type of application running on UE and the battery level availability of the UE. The selective protection is either enabled or disabled dynamically by the network. Further, various mechanisms for applying selective protection for each bearer, each packet and each Access Point Name (APN) are disclosed. Additionally, the method for identifying a secured and a non secured bearer has also been disclosed.
