This IP package will be included in the upcoming sealed bid event taking place on September 26, 2013. Bids for this lot will be accepted starting September 24 through September 26.
"Steadfast network security is integral to maintaining privacy and data integrity in countless industries as well as users' professional and personal lives. Therefore, we are pleased to offer such a strong patented approach for efficient and secure access to controlled data by multiple parties," says Dean Becker, CEO of ICAP Patent Brokerage.
Key Characteristics & Benefits
Accessing network-based data typically involves redirection to other servers or websites pages so users can perform a verification action, which is annoying to users and makes data vulnerable to hacking. In contrast, the assets available for sale cover an innovative and safe method and apparatus for authorizing and validating multiple users to access data in a communication network without the issues associated with redirection. This portfolio is highly relevant to companies providing security software, web services, and online authentication services.
When the invention is utilized, a user, or first party, navigates to a website and requests an authentication server to access controlled data. The server provides authentication tokens comprising verifiable personal information about the first party to a second party, which validates both parties without redirection to another server or website.
In another embodiment, these authentication tokens are shared with a second party. The second party initiates a request for controlled data and receives a token and identifier associated with the resource. The first party is then directed to the resource and provides the corresponding token in order to authenticate both parties.
