  • Patent number: 10984123
    Abstract: A method is presented to geographically control the distribution of protected data and ensure that it is not transmitted along any path which would encompass prohibited areas. A user wanting to so protect data can input geographic restrictions which are translated into geodeclaration metadata representing one or more geographic areas in which the data is either permitted or prohibited. The metadata may be in the form of an XML statement, and is sealed with the data using a digital certificate. When the data is received at a network router or at a destination device, the router/device can check its own current location (e.g., via GPS) and determine whether its location is within permissible boundaries. If not, the data is not transmitted or stored, and an error message is returned. If the router/device determines that it is within permissible boundaries, it proceeds to transmit or store the data.

  • Patent number: 10938803
    Abstract: Authentication of a networked device with limited computational resources for secure communications over a network. Authentication of the device begins with the supplicant node transmitting a signed digital certificate with its authentication credentials to a proxy node. Upon verifying the certificate, the proxy node then authenticates the supplicant's credentials with an authentication server accessible over the network, acting as a proxy for the supplicant node. Typically, this verification includes decryption according to a public/private key scheme. Upon successful authentication, the authentication server creates a session key for the supplicant node and communicates it to the proxy node. The proxy node encrypts the session key with a symmetric key, and transmits the encrypted session key to the supplicant node which, after decryption, uses the session key for secure communications. In some embodiments, the authentication server encrypts the session key with the symmetric key.

  • Patent number: 10848478
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for secure endpoint authentication credential control are described. An endpoint agent may receive an indication from an operating system of an endpoint device that the operating has received authentication credentials from a user. The endpoint agent may be housed in the endpoint device, and may detect a change between the received set of authentication credentials and a previous version of authentication credentials. Based on this detection, the endpoint agent may transmit the received authentication credentials to a central server. The central server may transmit the authentication credentials to an information technology (IT) resource which requires user authentication prior to granting access to a user.
