A system for generating an architecture of hybrid tokens to chain authenticated interactions is described. The system comprises a memory device for storing computer-readable programs; a communications device that is connected to a network and the processing device, wherein the processing device is set up to: initiate an authentication session for a user associated with an interaction with the user; identify an authentication identifier based on at least one of the authentication session and the user interaction, the authentication identifier containing at least one device portion and a user portion and an authentication record creating an unique token using the authentication identifier, and the unique token is required to be used in the subsequent authentication session and wherein the unique token links the authentication session to the subsequent authentication session the authentication session, and the subsequent authentication session forming the chain of authentication sessions; and store the unique token for the subsequent authentication session.

Common ways to prevent unauthorized access to user resources includes device and user identity impersonation. Although authentication checks are utilized to protect against unauthorised access, compromised information could make authentication methods vulnerable to access by an unauthorised person. There is a need to enhance the system to generate authentic, secure authentication tokens during interaction between authorized devices and users.

What is a patent?

Patents are granted by the government in order to protect an invention. It grants the inventor the right to develop, utilize and sell the idea. Society gains when new technology is introduced to market. Benefits can be realized in the direct sense, since it can allow people to accomplish previously unattainable things, or indirectly due to the opportunities for economic growth (business expansion and job creation) that innovation provides.

Many pharmaceutical companies and researchers at universities seek patent protection for their research and development. Patents may cover an abstract or physical product or process, or even the method or composition of materials unique to the area. Patent protection is granted to an invention that is useful or novel and is not yet known by other people in the same field.

Patents reward inventors who have commercially successful inventions. They provide a motivation for inventors to create. Patents allow inventors and small businesses to know that there’s an excellent chance that they will receive a return on their time, effort and money spent on the development of technology. They can make a living by their work.

Businesses that have the capacity to:

Protect innovative products and services;

Enhance the value, popularity, and appeal of your products market;

Differentiate your business and products from the rest;

Access technical and business knowledge and information;

Avoid accidentally downloading third-party content or losing valuable information, original outputs or any other creative output.

Patents convert knowledge of the inventor into a valuable asset which creates new opportunities to create jobs by licensing joint ventures and joint ventures.

Investors involved in the development and commercialization of technology will appreciate small-scale businesses that have patent protection appealing.

Patenting can lead to innovative ideas and inventions. This information could encourage the development of new ideas and could qualify for patent protection.

Patents can be used to prevent untrustworthy third parties from profiting through the work of inventions.

Patent-protected technology that is commercially profitable could be used to finance research and development (R&D) that increases the likelihood for better technology in the future.

You can leverage the intellectual property rights of your company to convince investors and lenders that your product has commercial value. Sometimes, a single patent could lead to a variety of financing possibilities. Patents as well as other IP assets are able to be used as collateral or security to finance debt.

Are you interested in similar patents? These are the steps to follow:

1. Brainstorm terms that describe your invention based on the purpose, composition and usage.

Write down a brief, but precise description of the invention. Be sure to avoid using terms that are generic such as “device,” “process,” and “system.” Consider synonyms for the terms you initially chose. Also, make note of key technical terms and key words.

To help you recognize terms and keywords, you can use the questions below.

  • What is the objective of this invention? Is it a utilitarian device or an ornamental design?
  • Does the invention consist of a method of creating something or some function? Or is it a thing or procedure?
  • What is the nature and purpose of the invention? What is the invention’s physical constitution?
  • What is the goal of the invention?
  • What are technical words and terms that describe the characteristics of an invention? To help you find the appropriate terms, use an online dictionary of technical terms.

2. Utilize these terms to locate pertinent Cooperative Patent Classifications for your invention at the Classification Text Search Tool. To find the best classification for your invention, look through the class scheme of the classification (class schedules). If you don’t see any results using the Classification Text Search, you may want to consider replacing the words that describe your invention with synonyms.

3. Check 3. Check the CPC Classification Definition for confirmation of the CPC classification you found. If the chosen classification has a blue box with the letter “D” on its left, clicking on the hyperlink will direct you to a CPC classification description. CPC classification definitions can be used to determine the relevant classification’s scope and therefore you’re sure to select the most pertinent. They may also provide research tips or other suggestions that can be useful for further study.

4. Find patent documents that have the CPC classification from the Patents Full-Text and Image Database. You can look through and select the most relevant patent publications by focusing first on the abstract and the drawings that are representative.

5. This selection of patent publications is the most appropriate to check for similarity to your idea. Pay attention to the claims and specification. It is possible to find additional patents by referring to the patent examiner and applicant.

6. It is possible to find published patent applications that match the CPC classification you picked in Step 3. It is possible to use the same search strategy as Step 4, narrowing your search results down to the most pertinent patent application by examining the abstract and representative drawings that appear on each page. After that, you must review all published patent applications carefully with particular attention paid to the claims as well as other drawings.

7. You can find other US patent publications using keywords searching in AppFT or PatFT databases, and also search for patents classified as not issued in the United States as according to below. Additionally, you can utilize web search engines to find non-patent-related documents that describe inventions in the literature. For instance:

  • Add keywords to your search. Keyword searches may turn up documents that are not well-categorized or have missed classifications during Step 2. For example, US patent examiners often supplement their classification searches with keyword searches. Think about the use of technical engineering terminology rather than everyday words.
  • Search for foreign patents using the CPC classification. Then, re-run the search using international patent office search engines such as Espacenet, the European Patent Office’s worldwide patent publication database of over 130 million patent publications. Other national databases include:
  • Search non-patent literature. Inventions can be made public in many non-patent publications. It is recommended that you search journals, books, websites, technical catalogs, conference proceedings, and other print and electronic publications.

To review your search, you can hire a registered patent attorney to assist. A preliminary search will help one better prepare to talk about their invention and other related inventions with a professional patent attorney. In addition, the attorney will not spend too much time or money on patenting basics.
