  • Patent number: 11895487
    Abstract: A method for determining a key for securing communication between a user apparatus and an application server. An authentication server of a mobile communication network and the user apparatus generate a secret master key during an authentication procedure. The user apparatus sends the authentication server a request for a key to communicate with the application server and receives a random variable. The authentication server and the user apparatus calculate the requested key by using a key derivation function applied to at least the random variable, a user identifier and an application server identifier using the master key.

  • Patent number: 11895106
    Abstract: The present embodiments relate to systems and methods for automatic sign in upon account signup. Particularly, the present embodiments can utilize a federated login approach for automatic sign in upon account signup for a cloud infrastructure. Specifically, the signup and sign in service (also known as SOUP) and an identity provider portal can be configured such that the nodes are aware of each other as Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) partners. After new account registration, the signup service can redirect the user browser to a cloud infrastructure console to start with a federated login flow, where a sign in service can issue a SAML authentication request, and redirects it to signup service. Responsive to validating the browser using a SAML authentication process, the browser can be automatically signed into the new account and allowed access the account relating to the cloud infrastructure service.

    Abstract: This Application sets forth techniques for provisioning and activating electronic subscriber identity modules (eSIMs) for mobile wireless devices. An eSIM is reserved during a sales order process and later activated during device activation after receipt by a user. An option for eSIM installation in place of (or in addition to) physical SIM installation is provided when purchasing the mobile wireless device. The reserved eSIM can replace a previous SIM/eSIM or be a new eSIM. During device activation, installation and activation of the eSIM occurs. Activation of the eSIM can occur before or after deactivation of a transferred SIM/eSIM. The mobile wireless device accounts for propagation delay of eSIM activation through MNO servers by disabling and re-enabling the eSIM until initial attachment to an MNO cellular wireless network succeeds or a maximum number of retry attempts is reached.

  • Patent number: 11706210
    Abstract: A computing device may include a memory and a processor configured to cooperate with the memory to establish a connection with a client device, with the client device having a first credential to connect the client device to a computing service, and the first credential being provided by a proxy. The processor may further receive a request from the client device via the connection to validate the first credential before use of the first credential by the client device, and validate the first credential with use of a second credential for the computing service obtained independent of the proxy.

  • Patent number: 11704393
    Abstract: A user, using a user-computing device connected to a computer network, is authenticated to access a computing resource managed by a system on the computer network. The user computing device presents a user interface to prompt the user to input a value for each of a set of user-defined credentials that the user has previously defined for a SAIF server to authenticate the user to access the computer resource, thereby forming a set of input values. Modified values, each generated from and representing a corresponding one of the input values, are transmitted and validated by comparing them with corresponding modified forms of user-defined credential values stored in a memory, thereby determining whether the user is authenticated to access the computing resource on the system.

  • Patent number: 11699137
    Abstract: In some embodiments, a user device may detect, via pattern recognition by a user application, a pattern (indicative of a given code type) presented on a physical object. The user device may cause, via the user application, a code scanning application to be launched based on the detection to scan the pattern. The user device may obtain, via the user application, a code (associated with a biller entity) of the given code type from the code scanning application based on the code scanning application's scan. The user device may cause, via the user application, the code or information derived from the code to be provided over the Internet to a computer system hosting accounts of a user of the user application. The code or the derived information may be used by the computer system to complete transactions between the biller entity and at least one of the accounts.

  • Patent number: 11689532
    Abstract: An approach to allow cloud-based positioning systems to use their own identity provider. An extra field is included in a token that is used to look up the identity provider for token verification for each user. Each access claim of the access token is checked for invalidity. If no invalid claims are found, accepting the authorization request. If an invalid claim is found, rejecting the authorization request.

  • Patent number: 11682251
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and apparatuses for authenticating devices and using an authenticated device to determine an access decision include a computing system including a network interface circuit that facilitates communication via a network and a processing circuit comprising a processor and memory. The processing circuit approves or denies a request to access a secured device. The processing circuit comprises an access management circuit that receives and interprets the access request to identify a user, an authentication database storing authentication data, and a workforce database storing credential data. The access management circuit retrieves the authentication data from the authentication database to determine the user device associated with the access request. The access management circuit retrieves the credential data from the workforce database based on the identification of the user and the authentication data to determine an access decision and approve or deny access to the secured device.

  • Patent number: 11676138
    Abstract: Systems, apparatuses, and methods are provided for enabling a transaction using a token associated with a first payment network to be conducted using a second payment network. When a transaction using a token is submitted to a payment network, the payment network can determine the payment network associated with the token. If the token is associated with a second payment network, a token verification request including the token can be sent to the second payment network. The second payment network can then return a token verification response including a primary account identifier such as a primary account number (PAN) corresponding to the token and a validation result. The transaction may then be processed using the primary account identifier.

  • Patent number: 11669839
    Abstract: A system for processing a digital transaction includes a user authenticator, a processor in communication with the user authenticator, and non-transitory computer readable media that stores instruction code. The user authenticator is configured to receive biometric data associated with a user from a sensor. The sensor corresponds to at least one of: an image sensor, a finger print sensor, a motion sensor, a user interaction pattern sensor, and an infrared image sensor. The user authenticator is further configured to receive user identifying information and to determine whether the biometric data associated with the user is associated with the user identifying information to thereby validate the user. If the user is validated, the user authenticator is configured to generate user credentials associated with the user. The instruction code is executed by the processor and causes the processor to receive, from a user terminal, the user credentials.
