20080291999 | Method and apparatus for video frame marking - Method and apparatus for marking individual video frames of an H.264/AVC standard compliant or equivalent digital video stream. Each video frame in a H.264/AVC video stream is conventionally divided into NAL units. There are typically a number of NAL units for each video frame. There is specified in the H.264/AVC standard the SEI (Supplemental Enhancement Information) type. This type includes the user data unregistered type, which can contain arbitrary data. In the present method and apparatus, an NAL unit of this type is provided at the beginning of each video frame, preceding the other NAL units associated with that video frame. The data contained in that special SEI unit is typically control information for downstream control of use of the video content. Examples of the type of control information are stream positioning data such as a video frame number; stream bit rate, such as normal, fast forward; decryption data, such as a decryption key or key derivation seed; and validation elements, such as a checksum or hash function value or signature. | 11-27-2008 |

20090037725 | CLIENT-SERVER OPAQUE TOKEN PASSING APPARATUS AND METHOD - In the computer client-server context, typically used in the Internet for communicating between a central server and user computers (clients), a method is provided for token passing which enhances security for client-server communications. The token passing is opaque, that is tokens as generated by the client and server are different and can be generated only by one or the other but can be verified by the other. This approach allows the server to remain stateless, since all state information is maintained at the client side. This operates to authenticate the client to the server and vice versa to defeat hacking attacks, that is, penetrations intended to obtain confidential information. The token as passed includes encrypted values including encrypted random numbers generated separately by the client and server, and authentication values based on the random numbers and other verification data generated using cryptographic techniques. | 02-05-2009 |

20090245506 | FOURIER SERIES BASED AUTHENTICATION/DERIVATION - For purposes of cryptographic authentication, verification and digital signature processes, a derivation function is provided. The derivation function is generated from a Fourier series, using a prime number to compute the initial value in the series. | 10-01-2009 |

20090252327 | COMBINATION WHITE BOX/BLACK BOX CRYPTOGRAPHIC PROCESSES AND APPARATUS - Method and apparatus for increasing security of a cryptographic algorithm such as deciphering, enciphering, or a digital signature. A cryptographic algorithm and a key are provided such that a deciphering process, for instance, is partitioned between two portions. The portion of the cryptographic algorithm carried out in the first portion is implemented in a “white box” model such that it is highly secure even against an attack by the user who has full access to internal operations, code execution and memory of the user device, such as a hacker or attacker. The remaining portion of the algorithm is carried out in the second portion. Since this second portion has relaxed security constraints, its code may be implemented using a “black box” approach where its code execution may be more efficient and faster, not requiring the code obfuscation of the white box implementation in the user device. This partitioning may be achieved using a delegation protocol. The chief advantage is that even given a limited code size for the cryptographic process, the security of the system is improved by carrying out the more computationally intensive functions more efficiently in the black box portion and executing the less computationally intensive function in the white box portion. | 10-08-2009 |

20090279689 | SYSTEM AND METHOD OF AUTHENTICATION - Disclosed herein are systems, methods and computer readable media for performing authentication. The proposed scheme utilizes new algorithms that introduce randomness using a physical value for authentication. An exemplary method includes sharing an initial state value S( | 11-12-2009 |

20090279691 | SECURE DISTRIBUTION OF DATA OR CONTENT USING KEYLESS TRANSFORMATION - A computer enabled method and apparatus for encrypting and decrypting data using a keyless transformation cryptographic technique. Data is protected using a keyless (unkeyed) complex mathematical transformation, in contrast to a traditional cryptographic algorithm using a secret key. This approach is resistant to both static analysis (hacking) performed on executable encryption/decryption code, as well as dynamic analysis performed during execution (runtime) of ciphering or deciphering. The method uses a family of asymmetric data transformations based on Galois field polynomials. | 11-12-2009 |

20090279696 | SYSTEM AND METHOD OF PERFORMING AUTHENTICATION - Disclosed herein are systems, method and computer readable medium for providing authentication of an entity B by an entity A. In the method, entity A selects a value p, a range [a, b] and a granularity epsilon. Entity A sends p, [a, b], and epsilon to entity B. Entity B initializes a value y | 11-12-2009 |

20100031039 | METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR DATA PROTECTION SYSTEM USING GEOMETRY OF FRACTALS OR OTHER CHAOTIC SYSTEMS - In computer based data security systems which involve entity authenticating or document time stamping or other cases where data is to be derived from a previous state, the necessary linking values are calculated using recursive chaos based equations such as the type used in fractal theory (the Mandelbrot set) or the Lorentz attractor or other similar approaches. In each case a value in each step is calculated using these equations so that each authentication or timestamp or other data derivation is linked to the previous one in a chaotic way. This makes it impossible to calculate any one value in the link series without having the previous value, due to the chaos aspect thereby enhancing security. | 02-04-2010 |

20110320814 | SYSTEM AND METHOD OF AUTHENTICATION - Disclosed herein are systems, methods and computer readable media for performing authentication. The proposed scheme utilizes new algorithms that introduce randomness using a physical value for authentication. An exemplary method includes sharing an initial state value S(0) with a sender and a receiver, generating a sender S(t, v) based on a parameter t and an identifier v and based at least in part on the value S(0). The method includes generating a receiver S(t, v) from S(0) based on the parameter t and the identifier v wherein the parameter t is related to a physical value in authenticating the identifier v based on a comparison of the sender S(t, v) and the receiver S(t, v). The process of generating the sender S(t, v) and the receiver S(t, v) includes a random variable generated by a process such as by a random number generator, the Brownian Motion or Wiener Process. Other embodiments do not use the physical value for authentication. | 12-29-2011 |
