Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for providing access to secure-access facilities based on pairing of the secure-access facilities with a user device such as a wearable device. A pairable secure-access facility may be a public storage facility or device such as a locker that includes communications circuitry for pairing with the user device. Once paired with the user device, the locker may operate a locking mechanism to lock the locker when the user device is away from the locker and to unlock the locker when the user device is in the vicinity of the locker. The locker may include a beacon for detecting and pairing with the user devices. Pairing the user device and the locker may include entering a locker identifier into the user device to ensure that the intended user device is paired with the intended locker. Systems and methods are provided for providing access to secure-access facilities based on pairing of the secure-access facilities with a user device such as a wearable device.

Abstract: A software widget running on a user device may be designed to operate in a locked or an unlocked mode. In unlocked mode, the user has full interactivity with the widget. In locked mode, however, at least some of the interactivity with the widget is restricted, despite the fact that the widget still operates normally otherwise while in the locked mode. While in locked mode, user input may be compared against a predefined unlocking sequence to determine if the widget should be unlocked.

Abstract: Technologies are shown for secure management of a data file secured on a data file management blockchain that involve generating a genesis block for a data file management blockchain that contains a data file to be managed and signing the genesis block to commit the genesis block to the data file management blockchain. One or more transaction data blocks are generated for the data file management blockchain that each include a modification to the data file and the blocks are signed to commit them to the blockchain. In some examples, the modifications describe changes to the data file and the transaction data blocks are traced to the genesis block and a current data file generated by applying the modifications on the transaction data blocks to the data file in a sequence determined by an order of the one or more transaction data blocks in the data file management blockchain. Technologies are shown for secure management of a data file secured on a data file management blockchain that involve generating a genesis block for a data file management blockchain that contains a data file to be managed and signing the genesis block to commit the genesis ...more ...less

Abstract: Technologies are shown for content distribution on a blockchain involving generating a content distribution data block on a content distribution data blockchain, that stores digital content, data identifying the digital content, an owner identifier, an access holder identifier, and a use conditions attribute for identifying use requirements for the digital content. A use requirement is defined in the use conditions attribute. An owner identified in the owner identifier sets the access holder identifier to an identifier for a user entity. An access request is received from the user entity and, in response, whether a current use condition of the user entity satisfies the use requirement in the use conditions attribute is verified. If it is verified that the current use condition of the user entity satisfies the use requirement in the use conditions attribute, the digital content is distributed to the first user entity. Technologies are shown for content distribution on a blockchain involving generating a content distribution data block on a content distribution data blockchain, that stores digital content, data identifying the digital content, an owner identifier, an access holder identifier ...more ...less
