The patent application (Publication Number: US20240022575A1) describes a computer-implemented method for transmitting data from an Internet of Things (IoT) device to a second device. The method involves encrypting a data stream, transmitting the encrypted data stream to the second device, and indicating the location of the data in the stream to facilitate decryption by the second device. Additional features include transmitting metadata with the data stream location, using separate connections for data stream and metadata transmission, and encrypting data using different ciphers.

Furthermore, the patent application details an IoT device configured to encrypt and transmit data streams, indicate data locations, and transmit metadata to a second device. The IoT device includes components such as an application module, network formatter, and tunnel manager to facilitate data processing and transmission. The device is designed for applications involving sensor data, backend devices, and cryptographic keys. The non-transitory computer-readable storage medium described in the application contains instructions for encrypting data streams, generating data location indications, creating metadata, and using different ciphers for encryption. The medium enables secure and efficient data transmission between IoT devices and second devices.
