TODAY’S PATENT – SELF-DECRYPTING WEB SITE PAGES
This soft-tech invention was invented by Ralph Victor Bain & was granted patent by the USPTO on 21th February 2006 bearing patent grant number.US7003800B1, which is related to the use of network web sites for securely transferring sensitive data over networks like the Internet.
Decrypted displays of the identified obfuscated page portions are automatically included in sequence with the display of the regular page contents as the user downloads and views the site’s pages. A web page has a process that enables site visitors to view sensitive information hidden in cryptograms within the page’s content. The visitor is automatically given the chance to enter keys to identify specific cryptograms in the site pages that the visitor is authorized to display during the site visit by controlling and key handling functions within the process.
A decryption function built into the process shows decrypted versions of the identified cryptograms alongside regular page contents when pages with those cryptograms are downloaded during the site visit. The sensitive data in the site pages is always kept in cryptographic form and is not processed or displayed by a browser while pages are being transmitted, stored, handled by network servers, or processed and displayed by a browser.
