WIRELESS NETWORKS - SEAMLESS AUTHENTICATION & SECURE USAGE

[Category : - SOFTWARES- Telecommunications- Indentification and payment methods]
[Viewed 715 times]

KEY CLASSIFICTIONS/USAGES
- Authentication mechanisms
- Countermeasures against attacks
- Communication protocols for network security and authentication of entities communicating through a packet data network
- Countermeasures against malicious traffic
- Detection or prevention of fraud
- Anti-theft arrangements, e.g. protection against subscriber identity

PROVIDES FOUNDATION FOR :
1) LARGE SCALE OPEN WIRELESS NETWORKS WITH SEAMLESS IDENTIFICATION/AUTHENTICATION & SECURE INTERNET ACCESS FOR HOSTS AND USERS
2) WIRELESS VPN Level 2 OFFERINGS

OVERVIEW:
The US patent 8428264 addresses the technical, legal and business issues in providing and using a distributed wireless/Wi-Fi’s network internet access: identity theft, illegal downloads, wardriving, child protection, corporate BYOD security

BUSINESS VALUE:
Commercial applications enabled by the patent cover major markets and large operating players that can:
- protect and/or add significant value to existing products or services
- provide the foundations to create new competitive business offerings
- create a strong market-entry barrier
- prevent other players to gain a competitive advantage

POTENTIAL B2C and B2B COMMERCIAL APPLICATIONS:

** NEW/EXISTING WIFI SERVICES, LIFESTYLE & SOCIAL NETWORKS
- Usage: Public or commercial WiFi offerings, internet access nodes for existing networks, municipal networks or mesh networks
- New social networks/communities based on lifestyle locations offering internet access and monetization based on ads and/or location
- WiFi Off-Loading of wireless internet access to a virtual WiFi network
- New VPN Level 2 offering

** CORPORATE SERVICES / BYOD:
- Usage: Helps corporate BYOD practices securely connect devices with a single sign-on to corporate networks and/or when away from the office
- Address security risks from using smartphones, tablets and notebooks onto networks outside the office

** EMBEDDED PATENT IN HW DEVICES:
- Usage: Built-In Patent in access point, routers and other hardware devices providing access to WiFi or wireless networks
- Plug & Play “patent-enabled” hardware devices from the shelf

BUSINESS VALUE:
The Patent commercial applications cover major markets, operating players and provide business benefits such as:
- protect and/or add significant value to existing products or services
- provide the foundations to create new competitive business offerings
- create a strong market-entry barrier
- prevent other players to gain a competitive advantage

WHY IS VALUABLE:
In public areas and open Wi-Fi networks, access and usage can be insecure with the potential security threat of data transmission “in the clear” without encryption making email address, password and webpages visited visible.
Man-in-the-middle attacks are also a common technique to steal data and information. If open networks have little or no client protection, hackers can spoof the wireless access point and talk directly to the client i.e. the user's Wi-Fi-enabled device
Often passwords for secured Wi-Fi access are given away to everybody, without proper registration and/or collection of personal credentials.
The core legal issue is the identification and liability assignment of generated internet traffic. Ease-of-access often means a compromised security and improper or inexistent attribution to the source of traffic generated by the node IP allowing navigation.
The risks and liabilities in a free and unsecured Wi-Fi internet access are identity theft, illegal downloads, wardriving, etc.
Corporate usage and BYOD access ubiquity and security are now reasons for concerns since employee mobility is now anytime-anywhere. Data loss and unauthorized access are at the top of the concerns, but usage of the same mobile devices on other Wi-Fi networks, often open and/or free networks, bears more risks to corporations

HOW IT WORKS:
GUEST connects to a patent-supported Wi-Fi Network Access node HOST using a wireless device such as smartphones, tablets and notebooks
To enforce security, make access legal and safe, the patent encrypts and re-routes the internet traffic generated by GUEST through his/her home trusted IP network.
HOST is now safe because GUEST internet traffic is not generated by his own IP internet address.
A patent-supported Wi-Fi Network Access node, does not need to know who GUEST is, nor what websites or traffic GUEST is generating. The internet traffic generated by GUEST comes from GUEST trusted IP as if GUEST was physically accessing internet from his/her home, office or personal cloud account

TECHNICAL ARCHITECTURE:
A method and system for commissioning a wireless connection with a related authentication and the eventual encryption to a remote relay node, whereto an electronic mobile device is connected to a hosting wireless access node for transmitting/receiving data to/from a service provider available on the Internet by means of a commissioned relay access node selected by an authentication and commissioning manager.
The data transfer between the mobile device and the service provider is encapsulated into the tunnel between the hosting wireless access node and the commissioned relay access node and is finally forwarded by the commissioned relay access node to the service provider.
The service provider thereby is exchanging data with the commissioned relay access node and not directly with the hosting wireless access node.
