mSIGNIA granted three machine learning patents for authentication, data protection
mSIGNIA has been received three additional patents including two by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and Patent No. 6095691 by the Japanese Patent Office.
As a result, mSIGNIA now has a total of five patents for innovation in authentication, cryptography and data protection since its first patent was granted in 2014.
U.S. Patent No. 9,559,852 is a continuation of mSIGNIA’s earlier Digital Biometric patents that use machine learning to identify users and recognize devices in a consumer friendly and privacy compliant manner.
During the process in which a user configures and personalizes their laptop, tablet or smartphone, data is added to the device.
mSIGNIA refers to this data as the user’s Digital Biometric. In other words, the changes associated with a user’s habits including the exchange of texts and calls, media and music the user played, locations that they frequented, etc.
Using machine learning, mSIGNIA is able to anticipate and validate changing identity-related data to ensure frictionless, continuous authentication of the user and the device on which the data is stored.
“Just as a person’s fingerprint yields data that uniquely identifies them, the data a person adds to their device becomes their Digital Biometric for identity,” said Paul Miller, CEO for mSIGNIA. “mSIGNIA’s innovations in data analytics and security eliminate the burden of user efforts like passwords; enabling safe, easy online access and payments for all users regardless of the device they use. We are excited to be granted patents on such groundbreaking technology.”
U.S. Patent No. 9,722,804 is an extension of the company’s previous US Patent 8,817,984 on cryptographic security functions based on anticipated changes in dynamic minutiae.
mSIGNIA’s invention of ‘Dynamic Key Crypto’ allows a website to store encrypted personal data — including private keys, payment tokens and other private data needed to personalize the experience for the user — on a user’s device.
The company’s patent portfolio enables a secure and seamless online experience whereby payment providers, banks, healthcare, corporate IT and social media can reliably identify users and their devices without disrupting the user experience.
Digital Biometrics enable multi-factor authentication which can adhere to many financial industries and government strong authentication regulations, even on devices without a fingerprint reader.
mSIGNIA’s iDNA product line, with the patented features of Digital Biometrics, Associated Push and Dynamic Key Crypto, also complies with a range of domestic and international user privacy regulations and best-practices.
