Application: Secure high scale cryptographic computation through delegated key access (Patent ID: US20230418953A1)

The patent filed by Palantir Technologies Inc. discloses an apparatus, computer-implemented method, and computer program for performing cryptographic operations in a high-trust environment. The method involves receiving a user request for a cryptographic operation on a large-scale dataset, sending a key access request to a key storage service, determining user permission, and granting access to the compute service. If access is granted, the key storage service provides the cryptographic key and algorithm for the operation, which is then performed by the compute service on the dataset. If access is denied, a user response indicating denial is sent.

The method also includes determining user permission based on a cryptographic license associated with the user, processing user tokens and compute service tokens, and ensuring that the compute service is authorized to perform the cryptographic operation. The cryptographic operations can include encryption, decryption, hashing, or any other cryptographic function, and can be performed on bulk datasets or full datasets. Additionally, the method accounts for scenarios where the dataset is too large for the key storage service to handle, allowing the compute service to perform the operation. The patent emphasizes the secure and efficient execution of cryptographic operations in a high-trust environment, ensuring user permissions are respected and data integrity is maintained.
