New pending patent applications are published on Thursdays. Today's Spotlight Applications concern aspects of blockchain (distributed ledger, smart contracts) and digital rights management broadly construed. Assigned to Bull SAS (FR), the first application discloses techniques for the creation and management of decentralized authorizations for connected objects. Apparently assigned to Michael Beck, the second application discloses techniques for a decentralized information sharing network.
20190171830, "System and method for the creation and management of decentralized authorizations for connected objects," assigned to Bull SAS (FR).
Computing systems and methods for the creation and management of authorizations of blockchain objects. Systems and methods managed by a controlled number of governing entities allow the management of access authorizations for an object connected to a varying group of services. Systems and methods therefore have numerous advantages including strong inter-operability, strong resilience, confidentiality, autonomy, ensured data integrity and traceability.
20190173854, "Decentralized information sharing network," assigned to Michael Beck.
A payload data can be received. The payload data can be packaged into a first immutable secure container at a first secure system. A new block of a blockchain can be created. The new block of the block chain can be separate from the first secure system. The new block can include a proof of existence of the payload data.
