Tamper Proof Electronic Banking Hash Based Generator

The solution to this problem is simple: to compute the response hash for a payment the calculator should not only use the pin, card number and challenge but also the account number (and optionally the amount) to which the amount is being transferred.

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.
