*** Juniper Networks Assigned Patent for Authentication for TCP-based Routing and Management Protocols ALEXANDRIA, Va., Jan. 30 -- Juniper Networks, Sunnyvale, Calif., has been assigned a patent (8,364,949) developed by Ron P. Bonica, Sterling, Va., and Andrew H. Heffernan, San Mateo, Calif., for an "authentication for TCP-based routing and management protocols." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "A new Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) Enhanced Authentication Option is described. An administrator configures sending and receiving devices to maintain lists of authentication elements for each protected TCP connection. Each authentication element includes an authentication element identifier, a key, a hash algorithm, and a start time. A sending device calculates a security portion, updates the new TCP option to include the security portion, calculates a checksum, and forwards the TCP segment to the receiving device. Having received the authenticated TCP segment, the receiving device scans its list of authentication elements, searching for an authentication element whose identifier matches that of the incoming TCP option. If the receiving device finds such an authentication element, the receiving device uses a key from the authentication element to calculate a security portion. If the calculated security portion matches the security portion received in the incoming TCP segment, the receiving device accepts the segment." The patent application was filed on Feb. 17, 2006 (11/357,704). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsrchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=8,364,949.PN.&OS=PN/8,364,949&RS=PN/8,364,949 Written by Kusum Sangma; edited by Anand Kumar.

The server side of the computer system comprises: a server-based framework process; a device for receiving requests from the client computer and determining which software controls to send in response; and a device for digitally signing and encrypting the software controls before sending them to the client computer so that their authenticity can be verified. The client side of the computer system comprises: a client web browser that runs on a computer; a device for transmitting requests to the server computer and for receiving responses from those requests; a device for decrypting software controls so that the authenticity of their digital signature can be verified; and a connection to one or more personal trusted devices. An authentication proxy may be used to mutually authenticate a client user and server process using personal trusted devices." The patent application was filed on May 17, 2007 (11/750,077). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsrchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=8,364,968.PN.&OS=PN/8,364,968&RS=PN/8,364,968 Written by Kusum Sangma; edited by Anand Kumar.

Current implementations of DVFS suffer from inaccurate modeling of power requirements and usage, and from inaccurate characterization of the relationships between the applicable variables. A system and method is proposed that adjusts CPU frequency and voltage based on run-time calculations of the workload processing time, as well as a calculation of performance sensitivity with respect to CPU frequency. The system and method are processor independent, and can be applied to either an entire system as a unit, or individually to each process running on a system." The patent application was filed on Feb. 22, 2011 (13/032,472). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsrchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=8,364,998.PN.&OS=PN/8,364,998&RS=PN/8,364,998 Written by Kusum Sangma; edited by Anand Kumar.

*** Kynen Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Jan. 30 -- Kynen, Reston, Va., has been assigned a patent (8,364,971) developed by five co-inventors for an "user authentication system and method." The co-inventors are Robert E. Bell, Severna Park, Md., Robert S. Winsor, Round Hill, Va., Aaron R. Metzger, Reston, Va., Aaron H. Krebs, Carlisle, Pa., and Richard M.G. Dynes, Fredericksburg, Va.

The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "A high security computer system and method that authenticates a user using iris recognition and liveliness detection. The method for authenticating the user to the secure system includes capturing an image of the user's face and generating an iris template from the image. While the iris template is being generated, liveliness verification is performed on the user's face. User access is granted if the iris template matches the enrolled iris template and if the liveness verification demonstrates the user's face is live, and denied if otherwise. The method may optionally silently re-authenticate the user after access is granted to the secure system. The authentication system includes an image capture device for capturing an image, an iris template generation component to generate an iris template from the image, a liveness detection component, and an iris comparison component adapted to compare the iris template to iris templates of previously enrolled users." The patent application was filed on February 26, 2010 (12/713,276). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsrchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=8,364,971.PN.&OS=PN/8,364,971&RS=PN/8,364,971 Written by Kusum Sangma; edited by Anand Kumar.
