"Remote, secure control and command functions within network software is integral to maintaining privacy and data integrity in an increasingly mobile world.

Key Characteristics & Benefits
This portfolio discloses techniques for securely communicating messages or commands over a network, such as the Internet. Upon receiving a request for initiating communication by authenticated email, a complex matrix of passwords having both valid and invalid passwords is transmitted to the requestor for authentication over a different communication channel. In response, the terminal generates an authentication response using this information – valid password and a mutually known secret – and transmits by voice only a portion of the key, which aids in preventing password thefts.

The password matrix is also changed at specified intervals to provide dynamic passwords that eliminate the need for complex software or algorithms at the message sending terminals. Different communication channels are used for communicating feedback and messages that further mitigates security risks. Finally, upon completion of authentication process, commands communicated through the messages are automatically identified and executed.

See this technical description of the message authentication IP sales offering.
