Patent No. WO2017187326A1 applied for by Serge Covain was granted in May 2019 The idea is to design an electronic device that sends a control signal to another device safely. Let’s see together how it works.
Serge Covain has developed a very innovative methodology. In particular, as the patent abstract states, Serge Covain has devised a method for an electronic device to emit a unique control signal, ensuring the safety of another electronic device. The same procedure describes in detail the procedure used to encrypt the emission of the control signal emitted at the start. The passion for IT and the experience in cyber security in AccedY, IT startup located in Lugano.
- Central processing unit that configures, generates and stores keys to encrypt sent control signals
- Short range wireless connection between mainframe and mobile device
- Long-range wireless connection when the mobile device is outside the short-range area of the mainframe
- Encrypted key set command
- Configuration for the generation, decryption and decoding of the control signal for the output of the control signal
- End-to-end identification and encryption owned by AccedY
Hence, the output of the control signal for the generation of the unique control code in a short-distance area can be done in several ways. In particular, the short-range communication link can be made through:
- Bluetooth technology
- Near Field Communication Protocol (NFC)
- Direct WiFi connection
- Infrared IR communication
- Z-wave protocol
- Facial Imaging Recognition
So, the invention of this apparently abstruse mechanism presents undeniable strengths that favour its adoption. First of all, AccedY is a strong deterrent to cyber espionage, guaranteeing security, confidentiality and untraceability in communications. Moreover, the startup is notoriously independent and neutral, as is the modus operandi of the Swiss State.
Finally, the effectiveness and security of the passwords sent lies in a computer algorithm that generates a number of keys, rendered ineffective after the first use.
