A method and system for authenticating between a user or client and a network access entity such as a server or another client using an IC card. The method includes a step of executing an initial authentication using the IC card when the user first communicates with the network access entity, a step of commonly holding authentication information in both the user and the network access entity if the initial authentication achieves success, and a step of executing a re-authentication using the commonly held authentication information without using the IC card when the user communicates again with the same network access entity within a predetermined period of time after the last authentication.
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.
