  • Patent number: 10644890
    Abstract: The disclosed technology for a hardware system to access a secure backend system uses non-volatile memory to hold encrypted secrets, volatile memory to hold decrypted secrets ready for use, a keys-for-all (K4A) server, and app servers running K4A clients. To access the backend system in production, each app server uses a decrypted secret and a certificate that identifies the app server and certifies its role and physical and logical location. At initialization of the app server, a K4A client is instantiated that launches and tracks processes, running on the app server, that are authorized to request decryption services. The K4A client responds to a decryption request from an authorized process, determined based on tracking of processes launched, by requesting decryption by a K4A server, using the certificate, and returns to the process, in volatile memory, a decrypted secret or a reference to the decrypted secret, decrypted by the K4A server.

  • Patent number: 10628599
    Abstract: Methods and apparatuses are described for generating and deploying customized application software containers. Software containers on a first server comprise an application software module and an end-user-specific data set. A second server receives input data from remote computing devices and stores the input data in a master data set. The second server determines end-user-specific data sets from the master data set. The second server encrypts each of the end-user-specific data sets with an encryption key. The second server generates the software containers by executing the application software module in separate processes and storing each of the encrypted data sets in a separate container. Client computing devices authenticate to the second server to access a software container. The client devices decrypt the end-user-specific data set stored in the software container using the encryption key, and use the application software module to interact with the end-user-specific data set.

In one embodiment an application may condition access to a piece of electronic content upon the content's possession of a credential from a first entity, while the content may condition access upon the application's possession of a credential from a second entity and/or the user's possession of a credential from a third entity. Use of credentials in this manner enables a wide variety of relatively complex and flexible control arrangements to be put in place and enforced with relatively simple rights management technology.

  • Patent number: 10558584
    Abstract: The present application is directed to employing intermediary structures for facilitating access to secure memory. A secure driver (SD) may be loaded into the device to reserve a least a section of memory in the device as a secure page cache (SPC). The SPC may protect application data from being accessed by other active applications in the device. Potential race conditions may be avoided through the use of a linear address manager (LAM) that maps linear addresses (LAs) in an application page table (PT) to page slots in the SPC. The SD may also facilitate error handling in the device by reconfiguring VEs that would otherwise be ignored by the OS.

  • Patent number: 10552784
    Abstract: One method herein includes forwarding an invoice for a purchase agreement made between a seller and a buyer. The method includes receiving a service selection indicating that the invoice is to be paid using an escrow system. The service selection includes a token for verification of a buyer's signatory. The method receives funding confirmation that the buyer has deposited funds into an escrow account. Based on funding confirmation, notification to ship the goods is sent. The method receives shipping confirmation confirming that the goods have been shipped. Upon receipt of the goods, a receiver is authenticated as the authorized signatory using the verification system. This authentication is based on the stored token matching a provided token. Based on verification of the receiver, the goods are released and the deposited funds from the escrow account are deposited into the seller's account.

  • Patent number: 10511447
    Abstract: A digital signature is created for a data set based on a group of one-time secret keys. Revealable, representative values of the secret keys are computed, for example by cryptographic hashing, and an authentication code vector is also formed having elements that cryptographically combine each secret key with a randomizing function of the data set. The vector is timestamped and signed at a signing time. Bits of a binary representation of the signing time are used to select which of the secret values are included in a selected key vector. A signature of the digital data is then compiled to include the set of authentication code values, the signature of the authentication code vector, and the selected key vector. The secret keys thereby become unusable after the signing time.

    Abstract: Systems and methods for evaluation hierarchical permissions are described herein. In an embodiment, a system identifies a plurality of permission sets for a document that is digitally stored in a data repository system, the data repository system having a hierarchical organization, the plurality of permission sets comprising a first permission set for a first hierarchical level of the data repository system and a second permission set for a second hierarchical level of the data repository system. Using at least the first permission set and the second permission set, the system identifies a plurality of requirement sets, each of the plurality of requirement sets comprising one or more required identifiers to satisfy the requirement set. When the system receives a request to access the document, the system determines whether identifiers corresponding to the request satisfy at least one requirement set of the plurality of requirement sets and, if so, permits access to the document.
