A Key Generation System (KGS) includes a key server, a first network element, and a second network element. The first and second network elements register with the key server and receive first and second KGS key seeds and first and second KGS identifiers, respectively. The first network element transmits the first KGS identifier to the second network element and obtains the second KGS identifier. The first network element computes a shared key based on the first KGS key seed and the second KGS identifier. The second network element receives the first KGS identifier from the first network element and computes the shared key based on the second KGS key seed and the first KGS identifier.
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.
