  • Patent number: 10636032
    Abstract: An arbitraged enhanced payment processing system in association with a distributed enhanced payment processing system includes a merchant point of sale (POS) terminal system and a remote payment management system. The POS terminal system initiates a transaction that includes receiving a payment amount, a purchaser account identifier, a virtual electronic payment indicator, and a merchant via a payment client. Subsequently, the POS terminal system outputs the transaction to the remote payment management system which generates a token for the transaction. The payment management system then provides the purchaser account identifier, a merchant account identifier, and the payment amount to a payment processing servicer. Upon receiving a payment processing servicer response, the payment management system outputs the response and token to the POS terminal system.

    Abstract: In general, the invention relates to a system and method of operating a shopping system to facilitate payment using a mobile device. A network is configured to include a server programmed with a personal characteristic database, a database searching algorithm, and to be coupled to a wireless communication system that is capable of communicating with the user's personal data device. The user logs on through the wireless communication system to the secure network using her personal data device, and communicates to and stores in the database personal data defining her characteristics. Either the secure network automatically identifies the first users precise geographic location, or the user himself otherwise indicates and stores in the database of the network an identifying address that indicates his current specific geographic location. Personal data defining the user's characteristics are then sent to a business location at the user's location to facilitate a payment transaction.

    Abstract: Instructions and logic support suspending and resuming migration of enclaves in a secure enclave page cache (EPC). An EPC stores a secure domain control structure (SDCS) in storage accessible by an enclave for a management process, and by a domain of enclaves. A second processor checks if a corresponding version array (VA) page is bound to the SDCS, and if so: increments a version counter in the SDCS for the page, performs an authenticated encryption of the page from the EPC using the version counter in the SDCS, and writes the encrypted page to external memory. A second processor checks if a corresponding VA page is bound to a second SDCS of the second processor, and if so: performs an authenticated decryption of the page using a version counter in the second SDCS, and loads the decrypted page to the EPC in the second processor if authentication passes.

  • Patent number: 10397005
    Abstract: A method, apparatus, and computer-readable medium providing instructions to cause a computing device to establish a portion of a memory of the computing device as a trusted execution environment and execute a trusted third party application within the trusted execution environment. The trusted third party application is to receive a signed public key and an identifier for a verifier from a user client attestation application executing on a client platform. The signed public key is signed with an identifiable platform attestation private key for the client platform. The trusted third party application is further to verify the signed public key, determine a policy of the verifier, encode the policy into a trusted third party anonymous certificate for the signed public key, issue the trusted third party anonymous certificate without including identification information of the client platform, and send the trusted third party anonymous certificate to the user client attestation application.

  • Patent number: 10387871
    Abstract: Apparatuses, methods, and systems pertaining to the verification of portable consumer devices are disclosed. In one implementation, a verification token is communicatively coupled to a computer by a USB connection so as to use the computer's networking facilities. The verification token reads identification information from a user's portable consumer device (e.g., credit card) and sends the information to a validation entry over a communications network using the computer's networking facilities. The validation entity applies one or more validation tests to the information that it receives from the verification token. If a selected number of tests are passed, the validation entity sends a device verification value to the verification token, and optionally to a payment processing network. The verification token may enter the device verification value into a CVV field of a web page appearing on the computer's display, or may display the value to the user using the computer's display.

  • Patent number: 10372943
    Abstract: A transform-enabled integrated circuit is provided with a combined transformation/hashing block, such as for cryptographic proof-of-work systems. The transform-enabled integrated circuit embeds components for a transformation function among hashing function components within the cryptographic datapath of the transform-enabled integrated circuit. The combined transformation/hashing block may be configured after the manufacture of the integrated circuit to embody as circuitry any one of a plurality of mathematical transformation functions, thus enabling a user to systemically modify the cryptographic operations performed by the integrated circuit while retaining the high performance and efficiency characteristics of application specific integrated circuits. Embodiments modify the internal intermediate state variables of the hashing function to transform and hash an input message. Method and computer program product embodiments are also provided.

  • Patent number: 10366393
    Abstract: There are provided systems and methods for shared authentication for limited use of an associated account based on user location and connected devices. A user may own a location where another user may visit or rent. The user may have a payment account that may be used with merchants to purchase items that are associated with the location or offered with use of the location. The user may set up the payment account to have a shared authentication mechanism with other users that utilize the location to allow the other users to pay for items using the payment account. The authentication mechanism may be a credential that may be pushed to a device of one or more of the other users when the other users are at or nearby the location or may be information of the other users that may be matched during transaction processing.

  • Patent number: 10361858
    Abstract: A system and associated methods provide digital identity and strong authentication management services for Internet users. The system includes a central, cloud-based, online service, referred to as a central service, which can manage user accounts. The system also includes dedicated, always-on, always-connected, cryptographically unique devices, referred to as beacons, located within the physical residences of its users. The central service associates each beacon with the residence address of its user by physically sending a unique address verification code by postal mail to the user's residence. The user presents the unique code to the beacon, and the beacon cryptographically confirms its identity and the unique code sent to the residence address back to the central service. The beacons can attest to users' identities and provide seamless strong authentication to third-party online service providers on behalf of those users.
