The Crypto-Sign Patent Portfolio

Rodney Beatson and Mark A. Kelty hold United States Utility Patent No. 7,916,907 filed on November 30, 2009, and issued on March 29, 2011. This patent for the System and Methods for Transforming Biometric Image Data to a Consistent Angle of Inclination expires in 2029, commensurate with the filing date. This patent has 16 claims that protect the exclusive design and function of the Crypto-Sign® methodology. Briefly described, the patent is concerned with the pre-processing of biometric samples (signature/sign and other modalities) to provide a consistent base for and the improvement of subsequent biometric matching processes. It transforms image-based biometric sample data to a consistent angle of inclination prior to feature extraction and matching.

Rodney Beatson, Mark A. Kelty, and Christopher J. Beatson hold United States Utility Patent No. 8,842,887 filed on January 31, 2011, and issued on September 23, 2014. This patent for the Method and System for Combining a PIN and a Biometric Sample to Provide Template Encryption and a Trusted Stand-Alone Computing Device expires in 2031, commensurate with the filing date. This patent has 17 claims that protect the exclusive design and function of the Crypto-Sign® methodology. This was a CIP of the ‘907’ patent and is concerned with the use of biometric samples matched with locally stored and encrypted biometric templates to provide a trusted stand-alone computing device. It addresses mobile device security and secure connections through protected access, protected data a rest, protected application selection, and protected keys for PKI communications – and it does this while eliminating the need for the user to remember and enter complex passwords.

Michael John Rowen, Rodney Beatson and Mark A. Kelty hold United States Utility Patent No. 8,885,894 filed on March 25, 2011, and issued on November 11, 2014. This patent for the Reduction of transaction fraud through the use of automatic centralized signature/sign verification combined with credit and fraud scoring during real-time payment card authorization processes. This patent has 20 claims that protect the exclusive design and function of the Crypto-Sign® methodology as a vehicle for providing signature verification-based payment card authorization. TSI owns 50% of the rights to this patent, the other 50% is owned by Virginia-based 20/20 Ventures LLC.

Rodney Beatson, Mr. Mark A. Kelty and Christopher J. Beatson hold United States Utility Patent No. 9,286,457, filed on March 6, 2014, and issued on March 15, 2016. The patent is entitled Method and System for Providing Password-Free, Hardware-Rooted, ASIC-Based Authentication of a Human to a Mobile Device Using Biometrics with a Protected, Local Template to Release Trusted Credentials to Relying Parties. It was a Continuation in Part of US Patent No.8,842,887 (above).  The patent has claims that protect the exclusive design and function of the Crypto-Sign® methodology, implemented in conjunction with an on-board ASIC. 

Rodney Beatson, Mark A. Kelty and Christopher J. Beatson hold the rights to United States Utility Patent Application No. 14/998,574, filed as a Continuation of the '457 Patent above. The patent application is entitled Method and System for Providing Password-Free, Hardware-Rooted, ASIC-Based Authentication of a Human to a Stand-Alone Computer, Using Biometrics with a Protected, Local Template to Release Trusted Credentials to Relying Parties and the Inventors and have filed a further Continuation Application (US 15/731,069) based upon it.  US Application 14/998,574 issued as US Patent 9,665,704 on May 30, 2017. The Patent has claims that protect the exclusive design and function of the Crypto-Sign® methodology implemented in conjunction with an on-board ASIC and employing biometrics.
