Background
Today, the Internet is rife today with identity theft, theft of funds, and misappropriation of information, including customer data. Conventional security is inadequate in many ways. Secured Sockets Layer (SSL) technology is commonly used in Internet banking, by governmental websites, and for sensitive credit card data. (Security is indicated by small icons of locks in browser windows when active.) Password and other sensitive information transmitted by SSL technology is increasingly subject to theft by keystroke loggers, i.e., Trojan horse infections via email or popup browser windows, and they surreptitiously eavesdrop on typed passwords or credit card details by users and transmit them for unauthorized access, including for e-bank accounts. In addition, the digital certificates from traditional certificate authorities used to create the SSL connections have in many instances been compromised at the root level; putting numerous derivative certificates of these root certificates also at risk. The market requires infrastructure changes, before a catastrophe undoes e-commerce.

Key Characteristics & Benefits
This portfolio discloses techniques for improved data security in the online environment:

  • Digital certificates from certificate authorities which are used like tokens or passports to access Internet signature servers, thus obviating passwords and counteracting the increasingly crippling effect of keystroke loggers.
  • Digital certificates of users for access can be enhanced with biometric information, or requiring secondarily a passphrase.
  • Claims for this patent potentially encompass a number of types of signature methods in use today for certified email and contract signings but with the addition of a client side certificate requirement to enhance security.
  • A second patent covers a complementary signature method, where an Internet server uses a symmetric key seeded with transaction specific information. The combination of asymmetric and symmetric ciphers to sign is virtually impregnable to attack, since two types of ciphers are used together, and breaking the encryption of one yields only unreadable characters of the other.
  • A third patent enables the use of an Internet server to encrypt messages for transmission over insecure networks using only encryption features of the Adobe Acrobat® Reader.

Market Potential
This is important strategic IP for the wide range of companies that deal with documents and data transmission and have a need for security and confidentiality.

Companies who have cited this patent portfolio include:
Oracle, IBM, Adobe, Bank of America, Western Union, Hewlett-Packard, Fujitsu, Agere Systems
