(Targeted News Service Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) By Targeted News Service
ALEXANDRIA, Va., Jan. 7 -- Bruce Backa, Incline Village, Nev., has developed a patent (8,347,359) for an "encryption sentinel system and method."
The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "An encryption sentinel system and method protects sensitive data stored on a storage device and includes sentinel software that runs on a client machine, sentinel software that runs on a server machine, and a data storage device. When a client machine requests sensitive data from the data storage device, the data storage device interrogates the sentinel software on the server machine to determine if this client machine has previously been deemed to have proper encryption procedures and authentication. If the sentinel server software has this information stored, it provides an approval or denial to the storage device that releases the data if appropriate. If the sentinel server software does not have this information at hand or the previous information is too old, the sentinel server interrogates the sentinel software that resides on the client machine which scans the client machine and provides an encryption update to the sentinel server software, following which data will be released if appropriate."
The patent application was filed on Dec. 23, 2008 (12/342,929). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO2&Sect2=HITOFF&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsearch-bool.html&r=1&f=G&l=50&co1=AND&d=PTXT&s1=8,347,359&OS=8,347,359&RS=8,347,359
