Efficient Provisioning Of Complex Structures Over Unsecured Channels

This invention is an intrinsic part of a scheme called SKS/KeyGen2 where SKS represent a comparatively simple (but secure) electronic device that can hold cryptographic keys (e.g. “smart card”) which can be use for authentication etc. KeyGen2 is a matching high-level protocol for provisioning an SKS device with such keys.

What we are trying to do?

We are attempting to mobilize the creativity and innovative capacities of the Linux and broader open source community to codify the universe of preexisting inventions in defensive publications that upon publication in the IP.COM database will immediately serve as effective prior art that prevents anyone from having a patent issued that claims inventions that have already been document in a defensive publication. In addition to creating a vehicle to utilize this highly effective form of IP rights management for known inventions, it is hoped that the community will use defensive publications as a means of codifying future inventions should the inventors prefer not to make their invention the subject of a patent disclosure and application.
