SAN FRANCISCO, June 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ICAP Patent Brokerage, a division of ICAP plc and the world's largest intellectual property brokerage firm and organizer of ICAP Ocean Tomo Auctions, is offering for auction patented improvements in mobile device based techniques to authenticate smart card transactions from Qiangdi International Co. Limited. The lot will be included in the 16th ICAP Ocean Tomo IP Auction on July 26, 2012, at the Julia Morgan Ballroom in San Francisco, California.
Security currently associated with payment cards such as cash cards, purchase cards and credit cards is unsatisfactory. An unauthorized person can use the cards through skimming, cloning, or by illegally obtaining the card number and card data. Techniques are required to improve security related to smart card and credit card transactions.
Key Characteristics & Benefits
This patent portfolio discloses a method of conducting and authenticating a smart card or credit card transaction.
- The method addresses market limitations by providing a secure purchase card system that uses a mobile device and a SIM-card.
- The payment card of a customer is linked or co-programmed with the customer's SIM-card.
- The mobile device with the inserted SIM transfers payment information to the intended user for the transaction confirmation when the payment card is used for a transaction.
- The technique disclosed improves both security and control over purchase card transactions.
