A number of client systems receive a common secure transfer key pair from a server during initialization. The secure transfer private key is encrypted in the server with a platform public key sent to the server from the client system. Each client system is then able to encrypt data, using a secure transfer public key, to be recorded on a computer readable medium, and subsequently to decrypt such data using a secure transfer private key. Preferably, each client system includes an embedded security subsystem (ESS) performing cryptographic processes and providing secure key storage. Then, the secure transfer private key is stored as encrypted, and is decrypted using a private key within the ESS. Preferably, the platform private key is also stored encrypted, to be decrypted within the ESS using a hardware private key.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
