|20140101734||CREDENTIAL AUTHENTICATION METHODS AND SYSTEMS - Methods and systems are provided for performing and verifying transactions involving authentication with a secure credential, such as a smart card, in an untrusted or semi-trusted environment. An application module, operating in an untrusted or semi-trusted environment can be denied access to sensitive data. The application module can determine a preliminary command to be sent to the credential and transmit the preliminary command to a broker module. The broker module, operating in a trusted environment, can supply sensitive data and transmit the command to the credential. Subsequently, the broker module can extract sensitive data from a response before it is transmitted to the application module. A verification server can audit the transaction to verify that it was carried out properly.||04-10-2014|
|20140059348||SYSTEM AND METHODS FOR ONLINE AUTHENTICATION - A method of establishing a communication channel between a network client and a computer server over a network is described. The network client may be configured to communicate with the computer server over the network and to communicate with a token manager. The token manager may be configured with a parent digital certificate that is associated with the token manager. The token manager or network client generates a credential from the parent digital certificate, and transmits the credential to the computer server. The credential may be associated with the computer server. The network client may establish the communications channel with the computer server in accordance with an outcome of a determination of validity of the credential by, the computer server.||02-27-2014|
|20130346753||AD-HOC NETWORK COMMUNICATIONS - A method of ad-hoc network communications comprises a computer server transmitting a communications session request to a primary logical communications device of a logical ad-hoc communications network. The logical ad-hoc communications network comprises the primary logical communications device and at least one secondary logical communications device that is registered to the primary logical communications device. The communications session request requests a communications session with one of the at least one secondary logical communications devices. Upon receipt of the communications session request, the primary logical communications device transmits to the one secondary logical communications device a session initiate message requesting the one secondary logical communications device initiate the communications session with the computer server. The one secondary logical communications device replies to the computer server with a communications session reply initiating the communications session and identifying the one secondary logical communications device to the computer server.||12-26-2013|
|20130036456||CREDENTIAL PROVISION AND PROOF SYSTEM - A method of authenticating to a computer server involves a first authentication client transmitting an authentication token to the computer server via a first communications channel, and a second authentication client receiving a payload from the computer server via a second communications channel distinct from the first communications channel in accordance with an outcome of a determination of authenticity of the authentication token by the computer server.||02-07-2013|
|20100318801||METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR PROTECTING REAL ESTATE FROM FRADULENT TITLE CHANGES - A method of effecting secure communication over a network begins by interfacing a hardware token with a computer host. The hardware token includes security software and communication software stored thereon. The security software is stored in a memory of the hardware token. The computer host has a memory distinct from the hardware token memory. The authenticity of the security software is determined on the hardware token. Upon successful validation of the authenticity of the security software on the hardware token, the authenticity of the communication software is determined by loading the security software from the hardware token memory into the computer host memory and executing the loaded security software from the computer host memory. After successful validation of the authenticity of the communication software, the computer host facilitates communication between the hardware token and a remote computer by executing the communication software from the computer host memory.||12-16-2010|
