New patents are issued by the USPTO on Tuesdays. Today's Spotlight Patents continue the theme of blockchains (smart contracts, distributed ledgers) and rights management broadly construed. Assigned to Infrared5, the first patent addresses techniques for real-time secure multimedia streaming over a decentralized network. Assigned to Onu Technology, the second patent addresses techniques for trustless proof of possession and transmission of secured data.
10,848,553, "System and method for real-time secure multimedia streaming over a decentralized network," assigned to Infrared5, Inc.
The present invention relates to systems and methods suitable for real-time streaming over a decentralized or centralized network. In the decentralized network, the present invention relates to a system and method that utilizes a block-chain distributed network to securely and reliably stream multimedia in real-time. In the centralized network, the present invention utilizes a centralized stream manager to manage nodes within the distributed network to securely and reliably stream multimedia in real-time.
10,846,372, "Systems and methods for trustless proof of possession and transmission of secured data," assigned to Onu Technology Inc.
A system for trustlessly proving possession of secured data includes a storing device designed and configured to store a collection of data, divide the collection of data into a plurality of lots, receive a cryptographic accumulator of the collection of data, the cryptographic accumulator having a root and a plurality of accumulated elements, wherein each accumulated element is produced by performing an encryption process on each lot of the plurality of lots, evaluate a posting of the root to an immutable sequential listing, select an accumulated element as a function of the root and a public pseudorandom function, generate a secure proof of possession of a data lot used to produce the accumulated element and transmit the secure proof and the accumulated element.
