Smart electronic receipt system

A smart electronic receipt system that provides intelligent receipts, called Smart Receipts, that electronically document a transaction between two parties and maintains a persistent connection between the two parties following a successful online transaction. A Trusted Agent on the Buyer's client system creates an order record which is stored in a database on a Trusted Agent Server and starts the transaction process with the merchant. A Smart Receipt is delivered by a Smart Receipt Agent over a secure connection from the merchant to the Trusted Agent Server upon successful completion of a purchase and reflects the details of the transaction. It is stored in a secure database on the Trusted Agent Server and is made available to the Buyer (user) through a Trusted Agent located on his machine. The Trusted Agent Server compares the order record Limited Edition Digital Objects (LEDOs) stored in database with the Smart Receipt's LEDO to find the corresponding order record. The Smart Receipt provides the customer with detailed information about an online purchase in a standardized format. Hyperlinks embedded in the Smart Receipt enable the customer to access customer service and order status. The merchant may also embed addition-al services within the Smart Receipt, including special offers for future purchases. Offers provided in a Smart Receipt can be personalized to a user's preferences which are stored on the Trusted Agent Server. Each Smart Receipt is comprised of a chain of LEDOs with each LEDO object having a unique owner.

Systems and methods for enabling trust in a federated collaboration

Systems and methods consistent with the present invention enable explicit and multilateral trust across a community of federated servers via a network. A trusted third party establishes a framework of policies and procedures governing a federation. Organizations joining the federation submit to an audit process of internal policies and procedures to ensure compliance with the policies and procedures of the federation. Upon successful completion of an audit, an organization may receive a digital certificate containing the digital public key of the organization and indicating approval of the trusted third party. The organization may then use the associated digital private key for signing security assertions associated with a request for resources from another federation service provider. The service provider may trust the assertion from the organization based on trust placed in trusted third party by the service provider and the trust placed in the organization by the trusted third party.

System and method of executing and controlling workflow processes

A method of executing and controlling a workflow process includes a request-response control process for coordinating activities between a plurality of entities, whereby an entity creates and sends a message requesting execution of an activity and another entity receives, parses and responds to the request. The message includes activity-specific data and activity status data. The activity status data signifies, for example, whether a corresponding activity has been successfully performed (i.e., completed) or failed. Process information, including control logic for the workflow process, is specified in an at least one uncompiled document, which may include an extensible stylesheet and an extensible markup language document. A document type definition defines the structure of the document. The control logic may include serial, AND-parallel, OR-parallel, XOR-parallel, CON-parallel and iterative instructions and a definition of successful completion and/or failure for an activity according to the control logic. The control logic also specifies a forward transition for a completed activity and a backward transition for a failed activity. A parser processes the message according to the control logic for the workflow process and the document type definition. A compiled workflow engine and database are not required.

One-time pad Encryption key Distribution

Some of these problems with digital information protection systems may be overcome by providing a mechanism which allows a content provider to encrypt digital information without requiring either a hardware or platform manufacturer or a content consumer to provide support for the specific form of corresponding decryption. This mechanism can be provided in a manner which allows the digital information to be copied easily for back-up purposes and to be transferred easily for distribution, but which should not permit copying of the digital information in decrypted form. In particular, the encrypted digital information is stored as an executable computer program which includes a decryption program that decrypts the encrypted information to provide the desired digital information, upon successful completion of an authorization procedure by the user. In combination with other mechanisms that track distribution, enforce royalty payments and control access to decryption keys, the present invention provides an improved method for identifying and detecting sources of unauthorized copies. Suitable authorization procedures also enable the digital information to be distributed for a limited number of uses and/or users, thus enabling per-use fees to be charged for the digital information.

System for converting TV content to interactive TV game program operated with a standard remote control and TV set-top box

A system for converting TV content to an interactive TV game program uses viewer input pointing to “hot spot” objects in TV programs to enter answers in the game program. Viewers can point to hot spot objects whose locations are mapped in the image display frames of a TV program using a standard remote control and TV set-top box. In a preferred embodiment, the interactive TV game program is a crossword puzzle game offered through the TV's electronic program guide (EPG). Correct answers to the crossword puzzle clues can be entered by linkages from corresponding hot spot objects found in TV movies, ads, video spots, and other types of TV programs on the TV channels. Upon finding a hot spot object that corresponds to a correct answer, the viewer can use the directional arrow keys and “Select” or “Enter” key of the remote control to “click” on the object in the image display frame, and the corresponding answer is entered in the crossword puzzle being played, such as by changing transparent text overlaid on the grid of the crossword puzzle to a darkened color on the viewer's TV display, thus fixing the answer in the crossword puzzle. The viewer can enable “clue helpers” such as on-screen prompts or highlighting of clue answers to facilitate play. A viewer who does not use “clue helpers” may receive a higher score for each clue answer correctly found. Upon successful completion of the crossword puzzle, an “Award Page” can be displayed offering viewers prizes, premiums or other information.

Restricting processing within a processor to facilitate transaction completion

Processing of transactions within a computing environment is facilitated by taking actions to increase the chances of successfully executing a transaction. A counter is maintained that provides a count of how often a transaction has aborted. The counter increments the count each time the transaction is aborted, and it is reset to zero upon successful completion of the transaction or an interruption leading to no more re-executions of the transaction. If the count reaches a threshold value, then an interrupt is presented and transaction execution is unsuccessful. However, before the count reaches the threshold, a number of actions may be taken to increase the chances of successfully executing the transaction. These actions include actions to be performed within the processor executing the transaction, and / or actions to be performed against conflicting processors.
