Application: Associating confidential information with a document separate therefrom (Patent ID: US20240095377A1)

The patent filed by Kyocera Corp. describes systems and methods for associating confidential information with a document separately. The method involves obtaining a document without the confidential information, establishing a login session with a programmed server, uploading the document to the server, indexing the document with search tags related to the confidential information, obtaining annotations for the confidential information, and storing these annotations separately from the document. The annotations can be timestamped with a limited lifespan, batch processed with other documents, stored in encrypted form, and linked to multiple documents.

The system described in the patent includes a host computational device with memory and a processor that initiates operations for implementing the process of associating confidential information with a document. This process involves obtaining the document, establishing a login session, uploading the document, indexing it with search tags, obtaining annotations, and storing them separately. The system can timestamp annotations, batch process documents, search for specific tags, link multiple documents with one annotation, and store annotations in a separate database compliant with data protection regulations. The system is designed to ensure the confidentiality and security of sensitive information associated with documents.
