Biometric Acquisition Patents (Class 713/186)
  • Patent number: 11451538
    Abstract: A system for authenticating an individual's location activity includes a mobile communications device connected to a network and in electronic communication with at least one other computer. The mobile communications device is configured to authenticate the individual's presence at a location using biometric data entered by the individual. The mobile communications device has applications stored thereon to access location information for the mobile communications device using a GPS application stored on the mobile communications device and to access time information for the mobile communications device from a clock application stored on the mobile communications device. The mobile communications devices creates a digital signature that authenticates an individual's location activity by storing an encrypted digital certificate comprising a hash calculation using the biometric data, a validation key generated by authenticating the biometric data, the location information, and the time information.

  • Patent number: 11310229
    Abstract: Systems and methods of biometrically authenticating a user of a device. A biometric sample of a user can be analyzed to generate a user-specific biometric signature that is substantially unique to the specific user. To authenticate a user, a biometric sample can be obtained and analyzed to determine if the biometric signature is present in the sample. If so, the user can be biometrically authenticated to use the device. The device can provide a network with an indication of the authentication of the user to authenticate the device to the network. In response to the authentication, the network can provide the device access to the network, its resources, or portion(s) thereof.

  • Patent number: 11301703
    Abstract: A biometric access control system for controlling access to an environment based on an authorization status of a living subject is disclosed. In one example, a data source generates image data of a tissue region of the subject. A liveness measurement unit processes the image data to detect changes over at least one of time or spatial volume in one or more structural features of the tissue region and generates, based on the detected changes, a spoofing attack detection status indicating that the image data is from living biological tissue or that a spoofing attack is detected. A biometric identification unit processes at least a portion of the same image data generated by the data source to generate biometric information indicative of an identity of the subject. Responsive to the spoofing attack detection status and the biometric information, an authorization unit outputs an authorization status for the subject.

  • Patent number: 11294993
    Abstract: A service request is received by a terminal device. First biometric authentication information of a user associated with the service request is collected. The first biometric authentication information is compared with preset biometric authentication information. When the comparison shows that the first biometric authentication information and the preset biometric authentication information are consistent, a pre-stored digital signature certificate private key is read. The service request is digitally signed according to the digital signature certificate private key. A biometric information verification message is generated and sent message to a server. The server is configured to read a pre-stored digital signature certificate public key corresponding to the digital signature certificate private key. Authentication result information is receiving from the server after the server verifies and signs the biometric information verification message according to the digital signature certificate public key.

  • Patent number: 11290261
    Abstract: The present application generally relates to systems, devices, and methods to conduct the secure exchange of encrypted data using a three-element-core mechanism consisting of the key masters, the registries and the cloud lockboxes with application programming interfaces providing interaction with a wide variety of user-facing software applications. Together the mechanism provides full lifecycle encryption enabling cross-platform sharing of encrypted data within and between organizations, individuals, applications and devices. Further the mechanism generates chains of encrypted blocks to provide a distributed indelible ledger and support external validation. Triangulation among users, applications and the mechanism deliver both enterprise and business ecosystem cyber security features. Crowdsourcing of anomaly detection extends to users and to subjects of the data. Robust identity masking offers the benefits of anonymization while retaining accountability and enabling two-way communications.

  • Patent number: 11283937
    Abstract: The present disclosure describes a first device to send a second device a face template of the user of the first device. When the second device captures an image, the second device may compare the face template to a second face template derived from the captured image. If a match is determined to exist, the second device may send the captured image to the first device. The face template may be transferred over a first communication interface, while the captured image may be sent over a second communication interface. The first communication interface may be Bluetooth and the second communication interface may be WIFI Direct. As such, the system may function in environments without cellular coverage and/or infrastructure WIFI networks. Additionally, the user of the first device does not need to be identified, only matched to the second face template.

  • Patent number: 11277380
    Abstract: An adaptive greylist may be used to reject authentication requests that originate from a source network address that has been taken over by a malicious actor. A percentage of successful authentications for a predetermined number of authentication requests that last originated from a source network address may be calculated. Accordingly, the source network address may be added to a greylist of suspended network addresses when the percentage of successful authentications is less than a predetermined percentage threshold. On the other hand, the source network address is kept off the greylist of suspended network addresses when the percentage of successful authentications is equal to or greater than the predetermined percentage threshold.
