|20110107416||PORTABLE DEVICE HAVING BIOMETRICS-BASED AUTHENTICATION CAPABILITIES - Apparatus and method for implementing biometrics-based authentication. In a preferred embodiment, the present invention is embodied in a portable device. Specifically, in one embodiment, the portable device includes a microprocessor, a non-volatile memory coupled thereto, and a biometrics-based authentication module controlled by the microprocessor. Preferably, the biometrics technology used is fingerprint authentication technology. The authentication module is capable of registering a fingerprint upon first use of the portable device, storing an encoded version of the fingerprint in the non-volatile memory. Subsequently, the authentication module can read a person's fingerprint and reliably determine whether the fingerprint matches the registered fingerprint stored in the non-volatile memory. If a match is found, access to information in the non-volatile memory is granted to that person; otherwise, access is denied. Embodiments of the present invention thus provide a highly convenient, secured and reliable method and system for user authentication and access control which was not achievable in prior art password-based authentication approaches.||05-05-2011|
|20100333184||SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR AUTHENTICATION - A system and method for authentication including verifying a password is disclosed. In one embodiment, the authentication system includes a first storage unit to store an authentication sequence, a read-only memory unit to store an authentication algorithm, and a second storage unit. A microcontroller is coupled to the first storage unit, the read-only memory unit, and is configured to be coupled to and uncoupled from a host. The microcontroller is configured to execute the authentication algorithm to verify a password with the authentication sequence, and to send an access request to a web server via the host if the authentication algorithm has verified the password with the authentication sequence.||12-30-2010|

|20100185872||SYSTEM, METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR READING CONTENT OF EXTERNAL STORAGE DEVICE - A system for enabling the reading on a reader of content stored in an external storage device is disclosed. The reader is a read-only device and has a display, a processor for controlling the operation of the reader, and a port for operative connection of the external storage device. The external storage device has a non-volatile storage and a central processor. The central processor is able to download to the reader the content stored in the non-volatile storage upon a pre-condition being established. The pre-condition is at least one of receipt of a correct encryption key from the reader, and arrival at a start date and time as determined by a real-time clock. The reader, external storage device, and a corresponding method are also disclosed.||07-22-2010|

|20090319798||METHOD AND APPARATUS OF STORAGE ANTI-PIRACY KEY ENCRYPTION (SAKE) DEVICE TO CONTROL DATA ACCESS FOR NETWORKS - A method comprises performing an authentication of a user of a portable device, performing an authentication handshake between the portable device and a content server, wherein the portable device includes a USB plug that plugs directly into a USB port of a host computer and the host computer is communicatively coupled to the content server, and sending a first key sent from the portable device to the content server, wherein access to restricted content on the content server by the user is enabled if the user authentication, the authentication handshake, and an authentication using the first key are all successful. The process may also include encrypting restricted content received from the content server using a private key before storing the restricted content in a non-volatile memory of the portable device.||12-24-2009|
|20090313434||NON-VOLATILE MEMORY DEVICE WITH USB AND WIRELESS CONNECTIVITY AND METHOD FOR CONTROLLING THE CONNECTIVITY - A non-volatile memory device having a USB connector with a USB controller, and a wireless antenna with a wireless controller. The USB controller and the wireless controller are both operatively connected to the non-volatile memory. When the non-volatile memory device is operatively connected to a host using the USB connector, the USB controller has priority over the wireless controller for read from, and write to, functions with the non-volatile memory. A corresponding method is also disclosed.||12-17-2009|
|20090132752||Interface for Non-Volatile Memories - A portable storage device for storage of data. The portable storage device comprises a first non-volatile memory of a first character; a second non-volatile memory of a second character, the second character being different to the first character; and a controller for determining to which of the first and second non-volatile memory the data is to be sent. The determining is based on a defined relationship between the first and second non-volatile memories, the defined relationship being buffer or backup.||05-21-2009|
|20090070522||METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR CASCADE MEMORY - A system and method of operating a cascade of a plurality of memory devices connected in series is disclosed. In one aspect, there is a memory controller operatively connected to the memory cell and a cascade circuit configured to enable a subsequent memory device in a cascade of memory devices.||03-12-2009|
