  • Patent number: 11108766
    Abstract: An information processing apparatus includes a memory, a request unit, an authenticating unit, and a determination unit. The memory stores authentication information for performing user authentication. When authentication information of a user who is a target of the user authentication is not stored in the memory, the request unit requests the authentication information from a different information processing apparatus. The authenticating unit performs the user authentication by using the authentication information stored in the memory or obtained from the different apparatus in response to the request from the request unit. The determination unit determines whether the apparatus or the different apparatus is to store the authentication information. When the authentication information is not stored in the apparatus, if it is determined that the apparatus is to store the authentication information, the memory stores the authentication information obtained in response to the request from the request unit.

  • Patent number: 11043222
    Abstract: A speech interface device is configured to defer encryption of audio data on-device until a time when the encryption operation is not competing with other computationally-intensive operations for responding to the audio data. For example, audio data based on sound captured in an environment of the speech interface device can be stored in volatile memory of the speech interface device, without encrypting it, until a set of processing operations (e.g., ASR processing, NLU processing, audio event processing, etc.) performed based on the audio data have stopped. Based on a determination that these processing operations for responding to the audio data have stopped, the logic may encrypt the audio data to generate encrypted data, and the encrypted data can be stored in non-volatile memory of the speech interface device for uploading to a remote system when a connection is available.

The server then encrypts the preprocessed CAPTCHA image into two shared images and transmits same to the client device. The client device renders the two shared images on a display through a user interface to facilitate superimposition of the two shared images and the user can visually decrypt the preprocessed CAPTCHA image and input an authentication code according to the CAPTCHA characters.

  • Patent number: 10785215
    Abstract: To provide a user signature on a network transaction, a security server receives transaction information representing a transaction between a network user and a network site, such as a website, directly from the network site. The security server calculates a one-time-password based on the received transaction information and a secret shared by the security server and the network site, but not by the user. The security server transmits the calculated one-time-password for application as the user's signature on the transaction. The one-time-password is independently calculable by the network site based on the shared secret.

  • Patent number: 10757574
    Abstract: Exemplary embodiments may use a contactless card as a secondary form of authentication in a multi-factor authentication for a secure messaging service. The recipient party of a request to initiate a messaging service session (such as a server computing device) may be programmed to use the phone number of the originating device to look up records regarding an identity of a party and their associated phone number as a primary credential and then may require an authentication credential originating from the contactless card as a secondary credential for the initiating party. In some instances, the credential originating from the contactless card is a onetime password that is valid only for a period of time. The recipient party determines whether the onetime password is valid. If both credentials are valid, a secure messaging session may be initiated with the initiating party.
