US and EU Patents Covering Hypermedia API Published
We are happy to announce that Curity’s applications for US and EU patents related to Hypermedia Authentication API (HAAPI) are now public.
The US Patent Office (USPTO) and European Patent Office (EPO) have published Curity’s patent application with the numbers US20220014359A1 and WO2022008429A2, respectively, and the title “Login and Consent Methodology that Follows REST Principles and Uses the OAuth Protocol with Attested Clients”. These inventions are embodied in authentication mechanisms provided by the Hypermedia Authentication API included in the Curity Identity Server since version 6.0.
“HAAPI is a novel way of securing mobile and web clients that can attest to their origin. Combining this with OAuth and OpenID Connect in a way that follows the principles of REST is an important security feature of the Curity Identity Server that enables our customers to achieve standard-compliant integration with great UX,” says Travis Spencer when reflecting on the publication of the patents. “It is for these reasons that we have sought to protect our invention.”
Curity continues to innovate and invent new technologies as it pushes the envelope of OAuth and OpenID Connect. The publication of these patents is merely one demonstration of such novelty.
