|20130177152||Cryptographic Key Spilt Combiner - A cryptographic key split combiner includes a plurality of key split generators adapted to generate cryptographic key splits, a key split randomizer adapted to randomize the cryptographic key splits to produce a cryptographic key, and a digital signature generator. Each of the key split generators is adapted to generate key splits from seed data. The digital signature generator is adapted to generate a digital signature based on the cryptographic key. The digital signature generator can also be adapted to generate the digital signature based on a credential value. A process for forming cryptographic keys includes generating a plurality of cryptographic key splits from seed data. The cryptographic key splits are randomized to produce a cryptographic key. A digital signature is generated based on the cryptographic key. Generating a digital signature based on the cryptographic key can include generating the digital signature based on a credential value.||07-11-2013|
|20120066511||Container Security - A container security device includes a housing, electronic circuitry, and cabling. The electronic circuitry is disposed within the housing, and includes first and second microprocessor functions and an interface for accepting and providing data. The cabling is removably coupled to the housing, provides the only communicative coupling between the first microprocessor function and the second microprocessor function, and is adapted to be attached to a container latch so as to break the communicative coupling if the latch is opened. The housing includes a port for the electronic circuitry interface. A method of providing container security includes closing a container using a latch device and removably coupling the cabling to the housing so that the communicative coupling is broken if the latch is opened., providing the only communicative coupling between the first microprocessor function and the second microprocessor function.||03-15-2012|
|20120002805||Cryptographic Key Spilt Combiner Including a Biometric Input - A cryptographic key split combiner, which includes a number of key split generators for generating cryptographic key splits and a key split randomizer for randomizing the cryptographic key splits to produce a cryptographic key, and a process for forming cryptographic keys. Each of the key split generators generates key splits from seed data. The key split generators may include a random split generator for generating a random key split based on reference data. Other key split generators may include a token split generator for generating a token key split based on label data, a console split generator for generating a console key split based on maintenance data, and a biometric split generator for generating a biometric key split based on biometric data. All splits may further be based on static data, which may be updated, for example by modifying a prime number divisor of the static data. The label data may be read from a storage medium, and may include user authorization data. The resulting cryptographic key may be, for example, a stream of symbols, at least one symbol block, or a key matrix.||01-05-2012|
|20110116628||Cryptographic key split binder for use with tagged data elements - A process of cryptographically securing a data object including one or more respectively tagged data elements includes selecting a tagged data element from among a plurality of tagged data elements, based on an associated data tag. A plurality of cryptographic key splits is generated from seed data. The cryptographic key splits are bound together to produce a first cryptographic key. A second cryptographic key is generated based on security requirements of the data object. The tagged data element is encrypted using the first cryptographic key. The data object encrypting using the second cryptographic key. At least one of the cryptographic key splits is based on the associated data tag.||05-19-2011|
